Lordy B. Took about 2 seconds for me. I wasn't timing it but it is quite large. That one of the BMW tower took the longest and several retries. I think it finally came across in about 5 minutes.

Good picture.

It's mostly either Fossil D or Pro J with lard-ass pictures that I've noticed lately.

Damn Blah are you using dialup? Mine took less than a second.

No but I'm on the fringe of a wireless network so I get a low signal.

Maybe you should look into getting internet through AT&T or Verison, even that should be faster than what you have.

Thanks for the suggestion but what I'm getting now is at no cost to me so I can't complain. It does what I want and need so for now it's cool. It gets kinda crappy streaming video but it depends on the source. Even that is usually usable.

The other thing about my connection is that there are several devices sharing it so depending on the activity even with a good or very good signal things can bog down quite a bit. Eventually I may get a separate connection but that is not economically feasible now.

Nothing wrong with mooching off a neighbors wifi. My son did it for a year.

My neighbor offered it and gave me the key. Didn't even ask. I was using another neighbors before, also was offered, but hers was really low signal due to the distance. Sometimes I can get a "very good" signal here but he's got another neighbor using it and he's got at least 5 devices on it himself so it bottlenecks sometimes. I don't like mooching connections without permission and never have done it.

Most people never encrypt their wifi and never even notice when someone else is on it.

All ISPs here now require that encryption be used in new installations. They don't want anyone getting free internet, it takes potential money away from them. In our case it doesn't mater because if it wasn't free we wouldn't have it. We can't even afford cable TV.

don't you live in a free country? Where I live the ISP can't dictate how you setup any router that you purchase and install yourself.

Yeah but I wasn't talking about self installed gear. The TOS of major ISPs state that you are not allowed to share your connection with the neighbors, so let's just keep this on the QT.

Well I never had one tell me not to share my connection. The only thing I ever heard about was not being able to charge for the connection shared. But even the commercial for one company's hotspot showed a little girl selling connection to her hotspot.

Just cuz you didn't hear it doesn't mean anything. Read the TOS for your ISP. I'll bet there's something in there about it.

BTW, speed tests are misleading. My connection TESTS consistently at 5Mbs dl but during an actual download I'm lucky to get even 1Mbs.

Well just like in real-estate downloads are location location location.
