Home Wireless Internet Review
Posted on 2013-11-09
My home PC and device system consists of an ADSL modem with wireless router, 2 old PCs, 2 older laptops, 2 android tablets, 2 old ipods and 3 android phones.
I'd like to ensure that the PCs (at least) are receiving the maximum internet speed that they can.
I think that the ADSL speed to the house is the best I can get in this location. The modem is brand new and good quality.
On the other end of the scale - one of the old laptops wouldn't connect to the network without me reducing the security on the modem/router. When I did this the modem-router said that I was reducing my max wireless speed to 54mbps - out of a potential 300 mbps.
I suspect that all of the PCs were already using 54Mbps - but I was surprised at the mention of 300Mbps.
So I'd like someone to talk me through looking at device connection speeds and what the possibilities are - and maybe I need to buy new network cards (?) and maybe my old laptop can receive it's connection from a PC rather than having to slow down the router.
