  • Wireless Connection

    Just bought a Linksys 802.11g router and 802.11g PCI card for my system to get me through some renovations and beyond.

    I can highly recommend this equipment as it was very easy to setup and performs beautifully.

            I had bad luck with a Netgear product once that soured me on the company, while I've had nothing but excellent experiences with linksys equipment...

            So, anyway, DeRanger, are you pleased with the speeds that you're getting with your wireless g setup? No latency problems? Bandwidth should be adequate for gaming... Tell us more...

              I only have one system connected to the hub but speed has not been effected at all, nor has bandwidth. There is no change in latency or packet loss while playing on other servers or my own, its just like being hard-wired to the modem. I'm interested to see what will happen when (and if) I connect another computer or two to the router.

              I'm at the other end of the house downstairs and I haven't had a hiccup yet.

                There's no way a properly-functioning wireless router will ever slow down your consumer-grade Internet connection. We're talking about 11 and 54 Mbit/sec here.

                I have a NetGear MR314 802.11b wireless router, and it performs flawlessly. I have a Linksys WET11 wireless ethernet bridge, and it has to be powercycled about once a month, but performs flawlessly otherwise. Before my migration to WiFi, I had the 4-port Cable/DSL router/switch from Linksys. It performed flawlessly. My mother-in-law has a 4-port wireless router from Linksys, and it performs well. The USB WiFi adapter she has from Linksys is a piece of junk.

                    I guess that depends on whether you're referring to bandwidth or latency, huh? I'm glad to hear that wireless has good latency, though...

                    Try playing online games via satellite... One of our members (or former members...) had almost unshared access to a T1 satellite link, but his pings to N42 were in the 800's... Consumer dishes won't get you much better... That's what made me ask about the latency...

                      Here's a test for your router's overall capability. Unfortunately you will need 3 machines to test it out.

                      These would need to be done simultaneously.

                      Copy a 500MB file from machine A to machine B.
                      Copy a 500MB file from machine B to machine C.
                      Copy a 500MB file from machine C to machine A.

                      You *SHOULD* be able to get near 100MB throughput simultaneously in all of these copy sessions.

                      This is personally why I went with Netgear over Linksys. They just perform better when given a real load.

                        I need to start paying attention to this stuff. I told my gf I will help her setup her computer and she is going with a wireless connection.

                          Its so easy, the hardest part if finding the right hole to plug everything in, litterally. ;)
