    It is one of the fastest networks in Australia if not the fastest.

    We get artwork to print from many different universities and the download links we receive from them absolutely hose all over everything else we get.

    It maxes out our work connection very easily.

    Moved over to one of those $90 unlimited Optus cable plans the other week with the speed pack thrown in as well. Uploads are supposed to be 2Mbit/s but it never gets above ~1.6.

    Just moved to a new townhouse over the weekend.

    Have only setup the wireless PC's so far but pretty happy with the result considering we still only use N300 cards upstairs and the router is downstairs.

    Running into some problems running this now.....the connection is fast and I get good speeds, but it will get 90% of the way measuring the download and then it just starts going really slowly backwards, but not finishing ready to start the upload. Any ideas? :confused:
