Default Re: router recommendations

wait so if i got a new modem, would it be faster, or does that not make much of a difference.

also can someone explain how to find out how fast a connection is by factoring the internet service-modem-router. in other words how fast is the overall internet speed once you've factored in those 3 things?

for example lets say you have the fastest version of att dsl (http://www.att.com/gen/general?pid=10938) with this modem http://store.att.com/catalog/product...&show=Features
and this router http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1173577562535
what would the overall speed be??


last question: if a modems LAN is 10/100 base-t would a 1 gps router work with it, also are there rj-11 to rj-45 adapters? and will any router work with any modem?

thanks a lot
try to answer all the questions plz

edit 1: anyone

edit 2: plz????

edit 3: cmon guys!!!

Let's just keep it to one thread.

You won't necessarily get a faster connection with a new modem unless maybe the old one is really crappy.

The only way I know of to determine the speed of of your internet connection is to use the SpeedTest app posted earlier.

Yes, a faster router will work with an older/slower throughput modem. It will only run as fast as the signal it's receiving.

You wont need an adapter as the RJ-45 is the same as an RJ-11 with 2 additional terminals on each side.

Yes, most any router will work with most any modem.

It means that the router can pass info along at 1000 mbps if needed.

He has Road Runner Broadband. Judging from his speed, I would venture to guess that it's a cable connection and he pays extra for the higher speeds. DSL is fast, but not near that fast.

o so... if you have a 5 mbps isp the fastest router you'll need is like, 10 mbps?

i dont think there are isp's that give up to 1000 mbps, so why are there routers that do??

this is all very confusing

I was just trying to be funny. I am sure your modem is just fine. I wasn't trying to imply you need to replace your modem. I was referring to the old days with telephone line dial up at 9600 baud or 9.6 kilobits per second. That is so incredibly slow compared to today standards it is painful. But, at the time, is was as fast as you could get. My first telephone modem was 300 baud, for my Commodore 64.

AR is right, unless your modem and router are really lousy, you aren't going to see any difference replacing them. Your internet access speed is normally just a fraction of the speed the modem and router and network switches (if you have any) are capable of using.

You get different speeds with different ISP service. As Master Jedi Atomic Rooster assumed, I do have a high speed cable internet connection (with my cheap as dirt router.) Looking at the speed you "tested" at, I don't think you need to change anything.
