I am using a gigabit network adapter. If I am using wireless connection, will there be a significant slowdown in speed as compared to cabled connection? The problem with cabled connection is that you have to do trunking from the living room to the study room. The best is to wall hack and run the cable concealed. Is there any alternative solution?

y sian? 37mbps to los angeles seems really gd leh.. considering that international bandwidth is capped at 25mbps
mayb not really have a cap on the speed? they juz put it to protect themself so users wont complain low oversea speed ?

can those singnet fibre user do a multi segment download with download manager from oversea servers ? what the speed you can get ?

Just out of curiosity, how do you run the cable to your pc? You ask Singnet engineer to do it or all by yourself?

Wireless connection will definitely be slower than cabled connection. Check whether your configuration.

Perhaps you're using Cat 5 cable bro.
Switch to Cat5e or Cat 6

it could be your gigabit network adapter also. I was using the build-in gigabit adapter from gigabyte motherboard and i only manage to get 33-60 Mb/s download 89-95Mb/s upload on the singnet utilities website. However, I can reach 93-98 Mb/s download 113 Mb/s upload on Speedtest.net website.

Then I went to install a TP-link gigabit adapter on the PCI slot on the motherboard and I am able to get 135 Mb/s download and 98 Mb/s upload on speedtest.net(sg server)

I remember the singtel guy's laptop can hit 198 Mb/s download 94 Mb/s upload on my fibre. But I cant get that on my System... Not sure what went wrong

-Cable used is Cat 6 btw
Tried a few times back to back. result is the same.

Lol
weird, my test both singnet utilities & Speedtest gave me almost the same result
Really less than 50+++
both macmini and my Asus eeePC 100HA. Both have Gigabit lan port.
Both lan and wireless.

Best is use Cat6 but on a normal Cat5 cable, i don't think it's that REALLY BAD

could it be because or proxy issue? I am not using any. Does it help to increase speedtest.net connection speed? Maybe the engineer's laptop are using proxy that why so high?
