  2. I have tried cablenut for a while. When I first tried it I had 4mbps comcast plan. It took me forever to get the correct settings for my cablenut and once i did the speed increased a lil but I had such bad packet loss from it that my mmorpgs etc. were lagging horribly and i had to get rid of it. I now have the 8 mbps /768k plan and have tried cablenut once again with no luck. Speeds are way slower with cablenut then without. Is it something I'm doing wrong or do some of you peopel have the same problem im having? Maybe this is a stupid question but im not sure. I just dont get any benifit out of using the program. I wish it worked for me!!!!!!!
  3. That error u see in my SS is the error i get when i try to change it to 32. Do u have AIM?

  7. Im advertized at 6mbps, im getting 5.8-5.9 when directly connected but when going wireless even though the router is 6!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! inches from the wireless nic (i had to stress 6 inches) im only getting like 2mbps haha it tells me excellent connection in the windows wireless thing on my quick launch i was on the phone with linksys for 5 hours changed channels updated to latest firmware, nothing is helping me.
  8. My connection is alot slower, the network isnt encrypted so if someone had a laptop where i am they could prolly find out my passwords and personal information etc. How do i tweak my speed for this connection? Do i need to update the firmware?
  9. I was correct on my guess. Its conduit that sub contractors are running for verizon. Its right down the street from me now. He told me they ran lines in my street already and they should get my address updated soon. This is what it looks like. I TOLD YOU I WOULD GET PICS Indestructable! http://img210.exs.cx/img210/8504/picture0166ai.jpg http://img210.exs.cx/img210/9994/picture0176nb.jpg

  12. Well basically 5 minutes ago I just saw 3 verizon vans on this block and SPOOLS AND SPOOLS the hugest spools of orange colored cables i ever saw in a shopping center parking lot. Imagine the little orange thing that holds an extention cord. The thing with the little handle on it to reel up the extention cord. Well thats exactally what this looked like only about 100000x bigger. Is this FIOS?
  13. OK well basically I know how cable modem works but I'm a total noob when it comes to FIOS. Now the question I have basically is can someone explain it the way I can explain how cable modem works. Basically the cable wire comes from the pole outside and is screwed into the cable modem and then the network cable is the cable that comes from the modem and plugs into the NIC card in your PC. I'm sure most of you know this but when I'm reading about FIOS I'm clueless. Whats CAT6, ONT, and what is the battery pack for? I'm so confused you guys don't even know. Will I still be using the same connection to plug into my NIC the same network cable or will it have to be bigger or something? Please someone elaborate on this a minute and make sure to laugh at me because I'm such a noob!
  14. Well I have comcast atm and I was looking at a wireless NIC since I have a wireless router and was wondering which would be suggested? I saw a linksys wireless NIC for like 40 bucks but it can only handle 11mbps I need more then that. Thanks
