Windows 7: Signal and Wiring

Signal and Wiring

I have two questions, first one is about cable length. Does it matter in internet speed? I have a 20 meter ethernet cable, and a 20 meter dsl cable, and i wanted to know if it is going to make a difference in speed or latency ( delay ).

Also, in theory, i have two wireless modems.
One is a N Wireless Router and the other one is a G i think. The thing is one transfers at 300 MBPS and the other at 54 MBPS . So, the signal strength would be calculated with MBPS x Signal strength right? Like 50% x 300?

So in theory, a 20% signal from the 300 MBPS Modem would be better then a 50% signal from the other modem? And does the signal really matter for a 10 MB connection?

Your cable distance in your home won't matter. Just think about how far you are aware from the source server. If it's 500 miles away, what's 20 more feet.

Your wireless question is likely irrelevant since both would outrun your Internet speed anyway. However, for transferring between the 2 machines on your LAN it would make a difference. Personally, I hardwire them if I can.

Hey all! So, I have a Cooler Master HAF 932 Full Tower case, and I really love it. It looks really good. However, I thought that the silver back and inside made it look unfinished; unprofessional. So I set out to fix that. Here is what the case looks like out of the box:
