I'm going to faint ...

 ^ I gained about 10 megs when I added the ethernet to the wi-fi alone signal.

 

Nether, by themselves, gives me such speeds.

"Holding the smelling salts..."    

 

Are you going to faint or what?

^ Am on the couch as a safety precaution.

 

Thank goodness the speeds are holding.

 

Seems like I am dreaming.

 

I won't look a gift horse in the mouth ...

Does anyone know how Windows 7 combines the wi-fi and ethernet ... ?

 

That's when I get the highest speeds.

 

Just curious.

Windows doesn't combine networks. It will only ever use one. (in this case this doesn't really matter as you only have one pipe out to the Internet anyway, but it could matter if you had a LTE connection while also being connected to a LAN, for instance).

 

Windows takes the network with the lowest metric and pushes all the traffic over that (assuming both networks have Internet accessible gateways). The lower metric is supposed to be assigned to wired interfaces, but it can get jumbled. I don't remember the exact process Windows uses to determine the metric (not related to actual speed) of the connection, but I'm sure someone else will chime in with those details.

All I know is that I see this, and am grateful for the awesome speed:

What's the distance from the main router? Signal strength?

Those speeds can be very good if it's too far away and you couldn't get more than 3mbps before.

I bought myself a powerline adapter for my pc, wifi was slow and driving me nuts.

 

Went from 3mbps to this:

@Seahorsepip what is your internet suppose to be? What do you pay for? Those number are doable with AC for sure, even a good N connection could get support that. But if powerline works then yes I agree its a better choice for a device that doesnt move - or a way to connect a new AP to get better wireless coverage in an area vs repeating.

Perhaps 60 feet, down in a basement.

 

Amped setup read 55% signal.

 

Extender wants 71% .... oh well.
