Why the frick are you still on 1Gbit?

We have 2.5 Gigabit speeds now, have you upgraded your ethernet cables to Cat-8? does your network card even support 2.5gig speeds? do you have a proper network switch that can handle these SPEEDS?

      The headline feature of WiFi 7 is considerably faster performance over WiFi 6. Up to 46Gbps total throughput is 4.8x the speed of WiFi 6, with speeds 2.4x faster for the same WiFi configuration.

      Expand article logo Continue reading
      As Internet Service Providers (ISPs) continue to offer faster internet connections at home and for businesses, WiFi 7 ensures your local network has enough capacity to support the increased download speed.

      These speed improvements are possible thanks to two major upgrades: doubling the channel width from 160Hz to 320Hz, and more data density, increasing the amount of data that can be encoded onto a radio signal.

            If you're in the market segment that needs over 1 Gbps ethernet, i.e. workstation and server, your motherboard already has integrated 10 Gbps ethernet. If you have a consumer board, then you're not tall enough for this ride. Just stream your shit from the cloud like an adult with age-appropriate executive function.

            Don't have to be "in the market segment" whatever that means to need a 1+gigbit ethernet. Also, no, most servers don't have built in 10gig lan cards/ports lmao. Pic rel, a bunch of servers I just gutted and sold parts off of, I think the best they had was 1 2.5pci card in one, although there was some fiber cards if you want to be dumb and off topic.

            I stream from a Plex server like an adult who knows how to use one, I know zoomers can't do things like torrenting and stuff and prefer to go to "movies.com" and connect their old 13" laptop hdmi to their tv's though.

          It has but the heat is worse because they've increased the raw power by increasing the density of the transistors, hence higher temps.
          They cannot make the gate smaller because it'll increase the energy and heat by 40-70% due to electrons liking to teleport across the gate keeping it open all the time at least at that small size, quantum tunneling they call it or something.

    There is some ISP that does 4500/1000 but even if they were available in my area they don't have multigig ports on the ONT/router so it's basically symmetric gigabit falsely advertised.

            You need one anyway. Put it near your entrance or into your internet box, whatever have you. Run optic fiber from there throughout your flat/home/villa. Have it terminate at the cheapest possible SFP/RJ45 at the socket.
            That's it. If you ever have to upgrade you just upgrade the switch/router/end devices and never have to touch optic fiber again or worry that CAT has updated.

            >another larper
            u run the fiber, fuse or mechanically terminate to the patch panel, choosing the type of connector that matches the fiber and what u want (sc lc etc), then it gets turned into an lc should u end up in sfp. you dont put sfps in sockets numnutz. so therefore your wallplate at the other end holds an sc/lc whatever socket. then u patch to your device nic (whatever type that is) but as most shit dont accept sfps u end up requiring a media converter or another switch anyways. fiber only makes sense for backbones, long distance runs, or autistically rich lunatics who need +10gb iscsi traffic for a san. with 99% of the shit u can buy for home youll always end up back to copper at the last mile of the leg. you are a black fricking moronic gorrilla Black person. your ignorance was so fricking bad that frick you i had to reply.

            splicing and terminating is the same shit u still have to join the strands to something. its as expensive as the method used. personally if i did it id borrow a fuser if i didn't order it preterminated, mechanical ends become shit if they leak but ymmv. any monkey can run fiber but the true dumbass homeowner have no concept of terminating nor can verify or utilize it. so most guys buy it preterminated and land it in lc bulkhead keystone jacks, leaving the slack somewhere hidden. then comicaly hang a media converter off it..

    My "bottleneck" if you will is the net speed I have. It's not even pushing 1Gbps. But for what I do I don't need more. Mostly its internet or basic movie streaming. Not massive torrents or gaming. I did all that long ago when my net speed was even slower than what it is now. All my collection of stuff is stored on a few servers. About the only use case for anything faster than 1Gbps would be if in a disaster type deal I wanted to shorten the time it'd take to do a full restore from the backup server(s). Is the cost/time it'd take for me to upgrade my connection really worth it just to shorten that restore time? Hell no. Right now it'd take from start to finish (build server,configure,data transfer) maybe 4 days tops. Let's say my data expands out to x2 it's current capacity. Ok, that's 8 days tops. (Aside; I don't add much, current data took me 20 odd years to collect so by the time I get to x2 that amount I'll be damn near 60 years old).

      unless you have the absolute worst runs and crazy interference any normal cat5e is plenty for 10gig in a standard sized home.

      cat6 is overkill, shit could easily do 10x the bandwidth but the transmitter and receiver tech just isnt there. intel and apple are kinda trying with thunderbolt which push 80gbit over copper but since its more of a display standard they dont bother trying to apply it to networking

      as long as ur cat5/e has a decent twist to it, its gonna work. I definitely have seen cheaper cat5 wires that are borderline not even twisted pairs and I bet they wouldn't do it at all. however I have seen tons of cat6 that was literally just cat5e with a different label on it. meter always passed them to haha. its srsly crazy to me how overblown ppl make this shit out to be

        >crazy interference
        A fridge' compressor going on/off is enough to trigger resets on some devices when connected to crazy long unshielded cable.
        idk about CAT ratings but shielding is a must when doing cable runs.

    I'm getting 2.5gbps through cat5 which was bought in the late 90s

    10gbit isn't deep.

      Meant to say twist them.

    No, frick off. Even when I'm hoarding 1Gbps is more than enough.

    2.5gbe is a meme and 10gbe is still too expensive and power hungry

      It's crazy. A single link takes more power than a gigabit switch with multiple active ports. That's why everyone in the business sector uses optical.

        Yes. It takes a special kind of moron to fanboy over hardware, it takes someone that's actually certifiably clinically brain dead to fanboy over AMD GPUs.
