Comcast sent us a letter, saying how to get the best Internet speeds from our router.
First, don't put the router by a window. Half of the Internet goes out the window and doesn't help you. So...routers send out Internet signals in all direction? Is there any way to set up my computer as a beacon, so it sends all the Internet in that direction, instead of sending it out equally in all directions?
Second, don't put the router by a TV. The TV will interfere with it. That's great advice, Comcast, but you drilled the special Internet router hole right next to the TV so we could get digital cable. Or something like that? Anyway, the point I'm making is that every house I've seen with Comcast (all two of them) has the specially-installed router hole right by the TV. Why would you do that, if it makes Internet slow?
Third, don't use your computer in a room other than the room with the router. Internet slows down, if it has to go through walls. Again, that's great advice, if I wasn't forced to keep the router right by the TV. Most people don't keep computer desks under their TV. If I could move the router, I'd set it up on the end of my computer desk, to get maximum Internet speed.
