i have a wireless network connection.
The host lives upstairs and is using some Fios fiberoptic connection.
I was always the fan of wired connections. We used to have a wired comcast connection and it was great. Now i'm using this wireless system and i'm not happy.
I have a belkin wireless USB stick that i am using for my wireless connection.
Networking has always been my downfall in diagnosing issues so I'm trying to figure out why my internet connection is slower than it should be.
When i go into my wireless connection status, the speed indicates 36 Mbps or 46, and usually hovers around that area. The signal stregnth reads full, if not, one bar under.
My internet is not slow, but definetly seems like it should be faster. I haven't tried playing an online game, although i fear i will have lag if i surf the web and have a hardtime loading pages.
I recently formatted and reinstalled windows to make sure it wasn't some kind of software trash slowing me down.
my question is: is there a way or a program that would give me a bunch of good info about my connection and if possible how to find out if my connection is being limited or capped?
any info would be appreciated.
