Hello all, Lately I've been uphappy with my internet speed, and not from the service provider (yet). The modem and router are set-up downstairs in a laundry room and I'm getting maybe 600kbs for downloads. Most of the time when I download a game I let my computer run all night/day to download it.
Well I'm fed up and looking to upgrade as this is completely unacceptable for a 4770k/780 build. I'm currently using the Asus Wifi card on their motherboards. I was set on buying an Asus 5.0ghz 1300Mbs AC router as an upgrade for my current walmart linksys router and then further down the line buy the $100 AC pci-e card.
Now today Newegg releases a video on the ZyXEL 600Mbs powerline AV2 and it almost completely changed my mind. This route would be cheaper and more "stable" but only "maxing" out at 600Mbs. Granted I know none of these numbers are actually real just bear with me. I'm just not so sure about the powerline idea with reviews about interference. I also feel this option would be more bulky, if you know what I mean. More outlets taken up and cords running.
Can someone please help me?
