Windows 10: Anyway to get FASTER LAN / Wifi speeds via Hardware compression ?
Anyway to get FASTER LAN / Wifi speeds via Hardware compression ?
While you can't break the Laws of Physics for say maximum transfer speeds of specific hardware - if both machine and Router are powerful enough could built in Hardware compression of the signals speed up the transmission between computer and ISP - less physical data would be transferred over say the wifi link - dynamic compression and de-compression could cut down the data sent / received by around 30 - 50 % -- a significant saving especially on wifi.
I haven't seen any of these with built in hardware compression but surely they exist. The compression should ideally be done in the NIC as well avoiding load on the Host computer's CPU.
Maybe wifi protocols already have compression / decompression in them but I don't think so. !!
Please note here -- I'm NOT talking about encrypting signals - that's a whole different issue.
Yesterday I tried to upgrade W10, but it wouldn't load. A MS tech did a lot of things, including turning disk compression on.
My disk is only 20% full; I sure don't need compression.
So, my questions...
1) Do I want compression
2) If I don't,...
I just bought the Wireless N PCI Adapter (TL-WN851ND) from TP-LINK for my Windows 10 PC. It says that it's compatible for Windows 7/Vista/XP but it doesn't say Windows 10 on there. I thought that since it works on Windows 7, it...
I have a PC with a Belkin Wireless N600 wifi Dongle that I use with a belkin router. I've had this setup for years and have never had trouble until upgrading to Windows 10. Now I'm getting intermittent speeds on my PC only....my chromebook...
