Hook My Network up With Some Nitro

Ever wondered how fast you can really go on your 1.5 mb internet connection? Do you even know how fast 1.5 mb really is? So what's fast and how do you go faster than fast?

A lot of internet service providers tell you that 56kbps (kilobytes per second) is rather slow compared to their 1.5mbps (megabytes per second) of furious internet download speed. The first time I heard someone say this up in my face I was rolling all over the floor!

I said "how can 1.5 beat 56, when as far as math is concerned 56 is larger than 1.5?" He answered back with this; well let's just say that my modem is tricked out for the fastlanes of a broadband connection. And I was red with anger both with his blown up ego and my ignorance. I didn't know what he was talking about. As far as I know internet is internet. I haven't got a clue.

So to nurse my broken pride is started taking an interest in knowing how these this really work. And from what I've learned, 1.5mbps does beat 56kbps any given day. The trick is not looking at the numbers but at the letters.

100 kilobytes is equal to 1 megabyte, so the bottom line is that 1.5mbps is more than fifty times faster than my regular dial-up. So I was thinking of looking for a dial-up service that has a download speed of 1.5mbps, to my confusion I forgot the kind of connection that he told me he had.

That's when I learned about broadband. As you know broadband can also go through your telephone line. And if you are thinking that it can also tie up the phone, here is the good news. It doesn't, because of a device called a modem the digital signals that are being transmitted by the internet and the analog signals that are used by the phone to transmit our voices are split into two separate signals making it more convenient for us.

Now I have been on broadband for a while now and let me tell you that I haven't had any problems with my internet connection. But as they say the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence, that's why I wanted to stay on top of the game. We installed for our house a wireless network connection both for the internet and for the local area network.

Because I would want to share with my other computers the internet connection and other devices like the printer and scanner. We did this to streamline the data sharing and the device sharing in our household. There is no reason to buy separate printers for all your computers at home when you can share them.

And because I was working on a wireless network form connection in the house, connection and download speeds became a major concern. This is because of the nature of network connection I was skeptical that it could still be as fast as it used to. Having a hard wired connection for your network you would have to have a LAN card and a network hub.

But with a wireless connection there were no network hubs. So how do you go about the issue of speed? I wanted to boost the connection speed of my home wireless network.

Boosting the performance and the speed of your home wireless networks are as easy as taking a walk in the park. The trick here is to have a wireless router that has a high capacity for supporting network peripherals. Wireless routers connect computers and devices in a local wireless network and distribute the download speed instead of breaking it up in to equal parts.

They act like an operator in a booth. So instead of breaking up the 1.5mbps they allow all the computers in the network to have 1.5mbps of download speed each.

Another trick in boosting the performance of your wireless network and speed of the data exchange is to have multiple routers in your wireless network setup. This will allow each individual router to operate at a minimum rate with regards to the devices that they are supporting.

The fewer devices being supported by a single router the more chances of having greater speeds. Also if you can have a single computer that is at least beyond entry level class to be the host computer for your wireless network the better. This is because if you have a powerful and fast computer at the helm the performance would be at a maximum while the maintenance of your network will be kept at a minimum.
