I have a high speed networking question.
Currently I'm a Rogers High Speed Internet cable subscriber and am experiencing unbareably slow speeds. HowStuffWorks.com has provided some insight as to the bottleneck I'm experiencing but hasnt gone into enough detail to satisfy my needs.
Can you recommend any books/websites which better lay out the behind-the-scenes networking problems experienced when using internet access through cable. I want to know what is causing the problem and what are the possible solutions one could employee to resolve it.
HowStuffworks.com has mentioned a 6 MHZ channel which a neighborhood shares and because of this there is only so much bandwidth that can be used. Once the limits have been reached, I suppose, more collisions occur on the medium for the neighborhood and so one is waiting longer to send/receive a message. Can the situation be likened to a traffic jam without any traffic lights??
