When we were shutdown the other day ILOX came back with an access speed of 28 instead of 50. Same as Telmex DSL. One problem fixed.

We are now approaching speeds that MY WIFI can't deal with. If I plug in with a lan cable I get 80 and up depending on load. Best I can get on WIFI is 60 or so most of the time less than 30. Now I turn off ILOX WIFI and use another Access point box WIFI that allows SMA antennnas and higher power. So does the connection to the access point slow it down or does WIFI have limits?? I am curious.

Upload speeds are much higher than DSL so if you want to upload go with ILOX not DSL. Most people would not care about slow upload speeds. Did Telmex raise the upload speeds with the new fiber?? Current DSL is 10 down and .5 up at least at my house with the old wired connections.

Yes the Global streaming box needs a public IP as other posts have talked about. Still have my box on Telmex DSL which works fine.

Remember bandwidth is shared! Thats why Bob saw speeds all over the place in one of his posts. Ilox behaves more like cable modem than DSL.

I have the small package of 40 down. The only way I get that is direct connection with a short cat 5 cable otherwise via wifi I'm usually betweem 20 and 30 down and 8 to 10 up. Far faster than my telmex ever was for basically the same price.

Now I probably wouldn't be too happy if I was paying for the 300 package and only getting 60 or so.

It is going to be awhile before I have enough hands-on experience with iLox installs to answer this question of "varying speed". I do know of one fellow who gets 280 down pretty steadily.

To answer the multi-part throughput question. For ethernet, which is when using cables from your modem, there are several standards of wiring. Cat5 is the "oldest", while Cat 6 and 7 are capable of carrying much higher speeds. Cat5 tops out at 100Mbps, but that is a theoretical cap... usually it will be much less. And the port on your computer is either 100 or Gigabit, with the 100 only allowing 100 tops regardless of the cable, while the Gigabit purportedly (see what I did there?) allows up to 1000Mbps.

Ethernet cable is usually stamped with the category number.

The speed tests on your device when connected via ethernet are much more representative of your actual speeds. iLox modems are not very good with WiFi to begin with. More on this later.

Not to forget that a switch that claims support for 100 Mbps or 1 Gbps, unless it is high end equipment, will NOT achieve the stated throughputs. The back-plane of these off-the-shelf SOHO switches (and other equipment) will connect to other 100Mbps or 1Gbps rated pieces of equipment at those respective speeds, but is not capable of transferring data at those speeds. You get what you pay for. For example, early Cisco 1 Gig fiber based SONET cards would only push 400Mbps (they did eventually work out the bugs). Now Cisco has available HDWDM cards that will push 400 Gbps. Each card goes for about half a million US dollars, so not something you'll likely find under the Christmas Tree. Please note: this is just an interface card, you still need a router chassis to put it into, some of which are the size of a refrigerator. Also, remember that the internet backbone does not run over Ethernet; there other technologies that support that side of things. The aforementioned SONET is but one, ATM is another.  

...and I distinctly recall terminating CAT-3 cable. Grey cladding, solid core. Horrible.

60 was the WIFI.  Lan cable connected was double or more.   No I never expected to get 300. I know better.  

Somebody asked me why I got 300 service and the answer is I have three people living in house and all of them can be streaming also 24/7 audio stream, VOIP phone.  Even my solar panels are even connected to the internet.  So why not when I can spread part of the cost to my roomie in the casita.


Somebody told me that ILOX WIFI is weaker than Telmex current WIFI modem.   They had to add an access point.   Any other data? I use external A.Point for WIFI.

My wire is all cat 5 FYI.
