Rant: My connection is weird. My connection is only fast after 12am. It's slow in the morning and afternoon. :(

why is this?

Your bandwidth is shared by many people. Your ISP isn't going to run dedicated cables between themselves and every single subscriber unless you're paying quite the premium for that privelege. They run a single line to your general area and branch that out to all their subscribers. The more people using this bandwidth at once, the slower everyone's connections will be.

Yeah, that's what I though. I'm planning on buying a new router that can handle multiple devices connected to it. I've been looking at quite a few Wireless N-routers.

That will only make things worse, you know.

Really? Isn't there a way to set up the router so that I get the wireless N signal while everyone else gets another?

Never had a problem with my connection.

Bought a wifi card, all problems went away :)

Just loading some videos with 1.6 MB/s :D

I was looking at a gaming router that has some advanced customization settings and I saw a video of a laptop getting 1GB per second on it wireless.

Having more bandwidth between your cable modem or whatever and your computer won't overcome the limitations in bandwidth between your ISP and the modem.

Think of it this way: if you have a garden hose, and the flow is not fast enough to fill your pool in a reasonable amount of time, stealing a firehose and attaching it to the end of the garden hose is not going to help at all.

If your ISP is DSL based and their modems support Quality of Service (QoS) you could always disable it, and that may or may not speed up your connection somewhat. I know that when I just recently switched from cable to DSL I was getting great speeds but slow latency and disabling the QoS really helped out.

If anything, it'll make it worse, because now the water has to fill the firehose, too. Signal doesn't become Wireless N until it gets to your router.

My sister's cat is the one that fell 8 floors. He's still alive, by the way, and none the worse for the trip.

It's anti-not-non-un-Pyro.

Of course. 8)

Rant: I tried defragmenting with MyDefrag two times, but they both stopped halfway through saying I don't have enough virtual memory. So I then downloaded Defraggler, and it is performing right now so I can't do anything processor/hard disk drive-heavy on my computer. :(

My car is running on fumes, and I tried 3 different pumps at 2 different gas stations to fill it, and they all refuse. The pumps cut off like the tank is full.

Oh, and did I mention my cat just got eaten by a fox coyote and I'm still seeing bits of him whenever I walk around the neighborhood?
