    Quintupled my internet speeds For $100

    Rated at 150, but guaranteed 100. I regularly see 180 on my speedtests.
  4. I know this is usually a place for help, so if this is in violation please remove. However! I recently was going through my parents internet stuff, and realized that for $1 more per month, we could get triple the potential speed, as long as we provided our own modem. So I did that, and the increase was pretty good (went from an avg of 30 to an avg of 70 ish.) Then, our router died, so we replaced it with an AC1200 router. Well, after installing it, I'm getting upwards of 165! So, for $100 in equipment, and $1/month, we basically increased our speed 5 fold. Just thought I'd share my small victory

    Updating Hardware With Windows 10

    From what I've read, I was under the assumption you could contact Microsoft, and they could help you activate on new hardware. Isn't there also a way to get your win10 CD Key now?
  8. If it's a SATA drive, you should just need a SATA power cable, or SATA power extension cable.

    Ideas to improve my connection?

    I got my powerline working, but the signal doesn't translate well through the walls, so I got a usb 3 adapter, and bought a 9 foot cord for it, so I'm getting 65 down

    Motherboard memory issue?

    It's a basically useless task, so just end it. You can also uninstall it, might as well. This might be of some interest http://www.file.net/process/alarmclock.exe.html

    Ideas to improve my connection?

    Moving the pc, or the router isn't really an option, unfortunately. As I added in my original post, I got the powerline working, but the speeds are only around 18. I'm frustrated haha. I wish I could just plug in directly. I suppose I could buy a really long cable, and run it through the attic. I also suppose that the cables I'm using are older, and don't have the speed. My cables are CAT5e, so that's not the issue. My connection is only 100Mbps through the powerline, though.... I also suppose I could get an extender for my antennae...
  12. So I just asked for help with adapter suggestions, but after buying a PCI adapter, I realized that my PC is in a terrible spot to receive wifi with a built in card. My wireless was working so well because I have it on a USB extension up high, free from obstructions. I used to have a powerline adapter, and loved that, as I would get great speeds and ping, but it died. SO my question is, what is going to be my best option for improving my speed and stability? I'd love to figure out a way to go wired if I could. (Just for reference) USB Adapter: 30-40 down, 2 up. Steam Downloads at 4 megs/s PCI adapter: 10 down, 8 up. Steam Downloads 1 meg/s Powerline: 60 down, 6 up. EDIT: I just fixed my powerline, but the speed is only getting 18 down.... Frustrating.

    Looking for a USB WiFi adapter

    Thanks for the advice!
  14. I currently have an ASUS adapter that only has a 300Mbps limit, and I'm getting about half the speed through it that I get on my brand new lappy (30 vs 60 down.) I keep getting connection issues while gaming and streaming, so I'm looking for a new adapter. USB preferred, but I'll go PCI if it makes sense. I saw this on amazon, and it seems pretty good, but I don't know that I trust the brand. Any suggestions are welcome, and appreciated!
