KL, 24hr internet, 100Mbs and nothing to do

Here in KL with kick-ass superfast internet broadband from the hotel. No shit, it is 100Mbs whilst the one at home is 11Mbs. So fast that things got download before I can even blink my eyes. Before I can finish sneezing, I got softwares from pssttt….P2P. Before I can say atchoo, stuffs got uploaded.

But my problem is two kids are fighting with me for the laptop.

Been to Borders and bought some books.

Been to some Ahlians’ accessories shop and bought lots of Chinese New Year ornaments. I am going to turn my apartment into some Chinese temples. 🙂

Bought 5 pairs of earrings and will be turning into Ahlians real soon.

Nothing to do but taking photos of the KLCC Twin Towers and traffic down there from the 39th storey of my hotel.

Arrgggh….gotta go! Before my kids threw me down 39th floor!

speed

well, effectively we’re only getting 1mbps at the most from our streamyx line although your laptop supports 11mbps! to test out the speed of your streamyx line, you can use this page calledXSpeedoMeter. check out the “size”, and the “k/bytes”. that’s how much you’re really getting… sigh. it’s still like an elephant through a straw.

I tried it out and got the above. When I return home, I will compare the speed and see?

  1. Are you refering to the local LAN connection speed? Its almost impossible for broadband to reach such speed.

  2. It says here – Speed 100Mbps. My home computer usually states 11Mbps. My neighbour connections (which I leech 😉 ) is 54Mbps. But the packets I get here is 28,000. Home – I get about 2,000+. It is a breeze to surf here than at home. Wonder if this speed has something to do with my router back home? I paid for the 1 MB streamyx package.

  3. fARKING- Can tell me more? Who/what/where control the LAN speed?

    Is it my router? Can I set it to run faster?

    Can I make the speed faster by buying a new router? Right now, my router is the B series (wateva that means).

    Please, please, please someone enlighten me. I went to Low Yat and none of the ahbeng can answer my questions.

    My new laptop is not compatible to my Netgear router. The laptop cannot use my home line but works perfectly with my neighbours broadband.

  4. Usually if you are connected through the RJ45 Ethernet cables, you will get 100mb depending on the switch. There are few types of wifi technology. You get 11mb is because your house router is using 802.11b. Your neighbours router is running 802.11g which runs at 54mb.

    LAN speed depends on the technology or equipments you have at your premises. I guess your new laptop only supports the “g” band. Most new routers supports both b & g band.

  5. This is pretty educational. No wonder i can reach 100mbs cuz i’m using the cable. but with my laptop onli 11 mbs.

    So, did u claim ur presents? Is it good? hehe

  7. Lilian,
    I think I saw you at Borders(Time Square) buying books yesterday about 4plus.
    I was just behind you at the paying counter.While waiting to pay and just behind you I thinking this lady look just like 5xmom but I was sure is not you as I was thinking u still in Penang celebrating X’Mas.
    If I know that you I sure come forward and say Hi
    Haha I dunno whether u still remember a Man just stand right behind of you.

  8. 9394 – For some funny reason, I did take a 2nd look at the guy behind me. I am not sure why (‘cos I don’t always take second looks at men, ok?). You were wearing a blue shirt, right? I was the crazy woman who grabbed another book just before I pay. LOL, the world is small indeed!

    MG – Kung Hei Fatt Choy!

    MamaBoK – Sure, sure!

    May – Tks!

    wuching – Yeah, so much inputs, good for us noobs.

    Tom,D & H – Tks for telling me that!

  9. yup, i think the normal consumer package is max at 1mbps.
