Weekly Hardware Poll, Dec 7th: How fast does data move in your house?


It looked like I could allow for multiple votes, but when the poll went up it doesn't look that way at all... so I guess vote for what segment you're on the most.

Okay, like last weeks's, I wanted to know what you've got, and reasonably, what you're going to upgrade to next. Be sensible, I would go with fibre too if I had the $10k or so to make it happen, but let's stay within reason. For instance, here's what I have:

5 machines on the DSL WAN that has to use DSL speeds to talk to the world but all of them talk to each other over 100BaseT.

5 machines on the LAN, one of them being a NAT box above of course, 100BaseT.

3-4 on the wireless LAN, 802.11b

I can't see bothering to go gigabit anytime soon, probably in the next year or so I'll switch the wireless LAN to 802.11g.

Cheers,

Finegan

All that is spread mostly over 3 different ADSL lines. All the lines... 1.5/256, a couple of different houses. I just found out we're upgrading the Clock's pipe so I'm really happy about that.

Its been tough running all this stuff on that tiny little pipe.

Cheers,

Finegan

2 main PC's and 2 laptops at 100Mb through Cable Router, 802.11g WAP connected to router for remote laptop support and also iPaq support. RS-6000 awaiting a key to install 10Mb MCA ethernet card. No upgrade plans for network as of now, except possibly getting Static IP and extra bandwidth from RoadRunner.

My main PC (Athlon 3000+) is a dual-boot Win XP Pro/SuSE 9.0 Pro machine. Plan to upgrade the box to Athlon64 FX-51 with Win XP 64, then use other computers Athlon 2200+ for stand-alone Linux (new case) with SuSE, and putting the 3000+ in that machine as Win XP 32.

one Linux only PII (slack!)
Laptop is Dualboot (win2k, RH9)

Linksys router with

3 boxes on 100-BaseT
1 laptop on 802.11b

going out through a Toshiba cable modem.

When doing large file transfers with the laptop it gets connected by 1394 to one of the boxes. Much faster for transferring multiple gigs of video.

Um, yeah... I'm an adult and I'm stuck with a cable modem... But that's just fine for what I do. But get this, when I lived on the college campus, I had 3 T1 connections. Unfortunately, the firewall prevented me from making use of that. Besides, with a cable connection, unless you are updating your Linux Box, usually you go as fast as the node you are connecting to will let you.
