As of lately, my home network has been suffering a major amount of lag. It started occurring when our internet provider (for the dutchies with us: Ziggo) decided to raise our internet speeds. They've done this about 2 times before, and it has been good, until they updated our Network speed to a whopping 50 mbits/s. It might sound good but there is a downside: my internet isn't working properly at all. So I will break down what's happening: Internet speed which is measured by speedtests are reporting a 12mbits/s, which isn't the speed we were promised. So boktor's calling the helpdesk and (as expected) they've advised me to disconnect the router and hook my computer (as well as others in our place) directly to my modem. You see, that's what's the problem, the modem connection (modem->computer) is fast, around 50-56 mbits/s. When I hook my computer up to the router, it's about 12 or even lower, sometimes, the speedtests can't even initialize. I mean, come on.... So the router might be the problem, which wouldn't be weird... So our connection type at home is a wired LAN cable network, consisting of 3 computers being hooked up to one router, a Sitecom one which allows speeds of 10-100mbits/s. I can't find a typenumber anywhere, as it isn't printed on it, but it's about 6-7 years old by now. My theory is that the router can't handle the new speed. But I'm not sure why... My theories for that are: 1) The router can't split 3x50mbits/s (With this, I mean that the router isn't capable of having 3 connections, having 50mbits/s (3x50=150), exceeding the 100mbits/s limit) 2) The router is stinky and old and is due for replacement (shouldn't be that much of the cause, it has been working properly untill the provider decided to boost our speeds) 3) Little dwarfs in LAN cable sabotaging the internets (theory of a drunk friend of mine) 4) Something is bothering the connection, like something that has been changed in settings (We usually don't change settings, but something might have been screwed up since the speed got boosted) Obviously, I know a lot about computers themselves, but I'm a complete retard when it comes to networking... yes I know, it sucks. So what might be wrong, do ya guys have any idea? Thanks in advance PS: internet is so slow, it takes ages to load the Temp, and I can't allow that.
