ihateusernames Posted February 2, 2016 Share Posted February 2, 2016 I recently got cable broadband hooked up (15Mbit/s). I've found that with a computer connected directly to the modem I achieve the rated speed. Currently I have a mini-ITX Pentium M board with dual Intel PRO100 NICs connected to the modem and LAN with internet connection sharing on Windows 2000. Sadly, in this configuration the other PCs on the LAN don't seem to be getting the full speed when downloading from websites. Are there any tricks to improve this? It should be no problem to pass 15Mbit/s over 100mbit ethernet, but I guess there is some kind of latency issue. I have a router I could use instead, but if I move it to where the modem is then I would need to buy another switch or some long cables to keep everything connected...
