today i replaced the wireless adapter from a Linksys wireles G with speed booster to an Edimax EW-771UAn.

in the past speed tests via wireless link often varied from from 22mbps to a max of 228mbps. today i got a surprised, the Edimax wireless adapter link hit 31.6mbps. i moved the router to variouse positions and then to another room and still the speed remained at 31+mbps. a good buy at £10.90
if you would like to test your speed click the picture

i have changed my BB speed to 10mb. after trying the 30mb my personal view is that for what i use it for 30mb is a waste of money. unless you are a gamer, have more than two pc's running or up/download large files the higher speeds aren't needed as web page opening isn't much different in time

Custom: That is the way the mop flops
Been having a few problems with the phone here and ended up phoning Telstra who are our main telephone company here. Well they sent a techy out and he done some work on the line and even though it was better it still played up so got them to come out again and this one said it was not installed right and worked on the line in the house. Needless to say that I do not use the phone much as I use the Voip phone. Anyway noticed that this site and others where playing up as well so did a speed test to find that it was about half what it used to be. Now the Techy had hardwired a filter in so took the bull by the horns and put another filter on the phone line myself. I now have a clear phone line and my speed is back to where it should be. Sometimes it is something simple but why the heck did the expert not think of that obviously there filters are crap. Just thought I would post this in case others have the same problem.

this was done with FFXI (massive multi-player online game) running in the background, so not bad.
