For at least two semesters I’ve been having a silly network cable running out the door of my room preventing me from closing it properly. My stationary computer doesn’t have wi-fi but since my old laptop does have wi-fi I made it share its internet with my desktop.
Like so: Desktop computer <-cable-> laptop <-wi-fi-> internet
Some nerdy statistics made using this speed testing tool.
- Wired into router: 10.71mbit down / 661kbit up. Ping 16ms.
- Wired into laptop: 9.05mbit down / 646kbit up. Ping 17ms.
- Wireless: 7.88mbit down / 707kbit up. Ping 24ms.
Curious speed fluctuations aside, the overall result seems good. Good enough for playing Dota 2. ^_^
