I recently (arrived this week) moved out from Wisconsin to Los Angeles. When I arrived the house I'm staying in had god awful Internet, but we upgraded it to Time Warner "up to 15mbps" speed.
This works OKAY, but there are frequent slumps to 2 and below.
My PC is upstairs and connected wirelessly to this home network. Tonight I tried playing Mechwarrior with my unit and it crashed out on me before we could hardly get started. Lame.
I know a wired solution is preferable but that's not possible here, since the modem is downstairs and this isn't my house to be dragging huge wires everywhere. In Wisconsin I had a wireless connection too without these sorts of issues.
