We have recently moved and now I have to use wifi for my internet connection.
I currently use an Edimax N150 USB adapter.
There are two other PCs and a phone connecting to the Livebox in the house.
We live in the country so probably quite a distance from the nearest exchange.
My speeds seem to be below average at
My wife's speeds are the same, but she also uses a USB wifi adapter similar to mine.
Would you be likely to improve things with a better adapter or is it just the supply?
Blimey thats fast lol ,i live a mere 35? Miles from the capital and mine rarely gets above 2mbs the nearest fibre box is 900 yards away but for some reason in the 21st century the last 100 is by overhead wire despite the newer houses further along getting 6mbs from underground cables ,not worth bt's time joining ours to theirs a mere 30ft but we pay the same for it!
My speed is actually garaunteed a minimum of 5mbs but 'connections' (lovely get out clause) will get around the promise as it states in the small print
Fed up with talking to idiot indians ticking boxes and more fed up with idiot indian 'managers' ticking the same ones and idiot indian 'tecnicians' doing the same then insisting all will be fixed the next day by some sort of idiot indian magic!
Cannot remember how many times i have repeated how can you phone me if you insist the only thing in the master socket is the hub!,if i take it out and plug the phone in you have no connection to the very thing you tell me to plug in by itself ! And YES i have removed the faceplate frickin idiot indians
One time i phoned up to complain the line was very quiet and the tosspot asked me to speak up because the line was quiet !then asked what the problem was
The line test ok he quietly whispered ,i shall not repeat what i shouted (in order for him to hear it plainly) 3 days later i frogmarched the engineer to the pole 100 yards away (our wire is unsupported for 90 yards over a field) and pointed to a bundle of wires at the top of the pole spilling out a junction box ,the problems there mate it always is! And it was
I wish i could be connected to the old guys pole 2 doors away ,he gets 4mbs but his wire comes from a road at the back ,trouble is his pole was erected in 1957 and for 'elf and saftee' no engineer will climb it ,in 1957 the houses at the rear werent there so theres a pole in the junction of 3 gardens and no access to the machine that uprootes them and puts in a new one so eventually it will fall down and more connections to the pole that serves my pole

Believe NOTHING anyones says or writes unless you witness it yourself and even then your eyes can deceive you
There is only one opinion i listen to ,its mine and its ALWAYS right even when its wrong
Its far easier to curse the darkness than light one candle
