All the techie guys sekalian, can auntie ask a few questions?
I have the CCB Netgear router which is a B. OK, CCB is not the model, just my cuss. But the B is what I also dunno. I have two desktops. One with a receptor (or whatever you call the antennae).
I paid the screamyass lousy service for 1Meg. But get only tortoise speed. On my desktops, the signal Excellent and Speed is 11 Mbs.
Now, my problem now is I have a new lappie. This Acer only takes G signal. And signal from my Netgear only lasts two minutes without getting cut off. You know, like old men without Viagra? Two minutes, poof, no more liao.
So, psssttt (in whisper mode) I am leeching my neighbour’s broadband. I got Linksys at 54Mbs wor. Fuyoh, damn fast and errm..I can simply kaching for my bloggers friends lor. You know what I mean hor? I got different IPs so can play around mah. And the speed from Linksys is 54Mbs.
But hor, Ten Commandments said ‘thou shalt not covet thou neighbour’s wife/broadband/chicken/ducks etc’. So, I don’t feel so nice doing this lor. And more over, when Mr. Linksys is away, I get angry with him lor. Frankly, I don’t know whose is Mr. Linksys ‘cos I live in an apartment. Left, right, centre or what?
I tried going to Netgear’s site to download the driver but there is none ‘cos probably it is an old one.
My idea of a solution is:
Use cable for my son’s desktop.
Use my son’s antennae and plug into my lappie’s USB.
If I buy a new router with the G, is it going to make my broadband speed faster? If yes, then, I will but if not, then, no point.
So, can someone tell me if a newer model router can speed up my stupid screamyxass?
Kamsiah, xie-xie, nandri, terima kasih, gracia, thank you.
