What Should My Max Bandwidth Be?

Recommended Posts

I'll vouche for that.  I had a wrt54G router.  I believe it was the router I had when I first joined SL (that is over 6 1/2 years ago.....just to show how old the router is and it was not new when I joined).  It worked fine for me back then with my old ATI 9250 video card with 256 onboard VRAM........I lagged a bit.  :)  I upped my graphics to some nVidia card (I really don't remember exacty what the card was..........something like a 6600GT I believe).  My graphics improved but I still lagged if more than about 8 or 10 avatars were in my area.  Then I upgraded to another Linksys router and suddenly I was not lagging much at all (some wireless N model that I can't for the life of me remember).  Routers do make a difference......and that is my point of this post.

I don't have lag my FPS and everything else is usually very fast. It's just it takes a long time to rez things a lot. Also, since my mom updated the firmware or something recently, I haven't been getting kicked off in a few days now. This is a good sign.

My speedtest results say I have a download speed of 1.85 mbps, so I set my bandwidth to 800

i still have loads of packet loss, no matter what I do. I switched from wireless/wifi to a wired lan, i cleared out my cache and everything, switched off modem and router, waited a bit for it to cool down and restarted. Still having trouble, and I keep getting logged out. 


My broadband speed varies through the day, and there is nothing i can do about it right now. any help?
