    Home Optical Networking - Too late or still OK


    Hi folks

    I was thinking since I have a great Internet speed of >10Gb/s soon to be upgraded to 50 Gb/s I was thinking of replacing Lan cables by fibre optic to router to get max speed. Router will take optical cable so at that end it's OK.

    There's hardware around for the computer connector to use fibre optic -- my concern is that am I just wasting my time if the new decent wireless 5g systems will eliminate the need for any sort of cabling in the future. Of course until one knows what the pricing arrangements on 5g systems are it's difficult to make a choice -- 5g broadband needs to have unlimited deals otherwise 15 mins of a 4k UHD movie will eat your entire months allowance !!!! the current phone plans are bonkersly poor so far - however my broad band service is unlimited and with sometimes up to 4 people watching separate 4K UHD movies all at the same time I do need a fast service !!!

    This will give me up to 40Gb/s with full duplex to my multimedia server and the optical cable can go to approx 200 metres so should be fine.

    High Performance 40gbps Fiber Optic Nic Card Xl710-qda2 Ethernet Converged Network Adapter - Buy Xl710-qda2,2 Port Pci Lan Card,Network Adapter Product on Alibaba.com

    This stuff isn't the cheapest but the people watching the 4K UHD streamed movies have all agreed to put some money into the pot.

    Anybody else replaced their ethernet LAN with fibre and does it work "as it says on the tin". I can easily also upgrade the SSD's / HDD's to super mega fast SAS type if I have to as well but Disk I/O speed isn't or doesn't seem to be the bottleneck --it's definitely the load on the network when live streaming a load of very high definition video.

    Cheers

  2. Network card driver problems with official release version of Windows 10

    Hi,

    Sorry for getting back to you late.

    I would suggest you to run Network troubleshooter:

    Follow the below steps:




    • Click "Search" and type "Troubleshooting" without quotes and hit enter.

    • Click “View All”

    • Select "Network Adapter"

    • Click next to run the troubleshooter.

      Hope this helps.

      Regards,

  4. Home Optical Networking - Too late or still OK

    PC Build Steps

    Ok just because I like steps i am going to create some steps. Please give me the stamp of approval/disapproval
    • Install system in case
      • Remember to connect SSD and optical to same SATA ports on motherboard
    • Turn on PC
    • setup HDD
    • run blend test in prime95 for 30-60 min
      • run realtemp at the same time
    • While in Prime95 test
      • if CPU goes above 70c in RealTemp, I have a leaky CPU
      • if my system locks up or blue screens, there is an instability in the system somewhere
      • if my system does not lock up or blue screen, my CPU is not damaged and I am in the clear!
    What do you guys think??
