I’m sure that alot of people out there like myself have little networking knowledge and have come to find that their network when dealing with the HUB is less than sufficient.
As for me, and i believe many others, my Hub is in an entirely seperate room than my router, thus having to use the ‘wireless adapter’ for internet connection.
I constantly am transfering large blu ray files to and from my HUB’s Internal Drive, along with my 2TB External Drive directly connected to my HUB.
I would Like to create a Thread full of all the options we have for connecting the HUB wirelessly to the internet and our home network, along with network drives that we can add into our network for the hub so that the many users of this forum can quickly see their many options as i have seen ALOT of threads dealing with slow speeds and issues.
so what is my cheapest solution to acheiving the greatest wireless speeds? The Options i know of are these:
Please post what your current setup, and the speeds that you are able obtain from it.
I currently have a gigabit ethernet card within my PC, and a wireless G router. I have a Belkin Basic 54mbps Wireless G Adapter. When transfering files from my PC to my Hub i get varying Speeds. I usually get a minimum speed of 900KB/s and a Maximum Speed of 2MB/s.
The Options i have been looking towards for getting a faster Wireless Network are these:
1.) Buy a Wireless N Router ($60) and a Wireless N adapter ($50) and from what i’ve read i should be able to get around 6-8MB/s? right? or is that figure greater or lesser?
2.) Buy a Powerline adater (runs into router and turns electrical sockets into internet connection)
($100) But more stable and also much faster than a wireless connection. Does anyone currently use this option, and how quickly do your files transfer?
What other options are their for wireless connections?
