My broadband connection is only 3.5-4.5MB/s. Besides, anything you were to do between your house and the outside box is going to be limited by the fact that, sooner or later, all DLS connections must travel over a phone line, which is going to be slow. That said, for normal web browsing, and even a little video streaming, a DSL connection is fast enough, even at only 1MB/s. If you want to download movies from iTunes or do online gaming and stuff like that, then you should just get a broadband connection installed.
I currently have a dsl modem that uses a seperate
phone line all the way from the box outside to the
modem aprox. 50 ft. Or so. Is there a better cable
to use for this ie. Coax / cat 6 or use all four wires
(2 with 2) to improve performance and reliability of
connection? Currently have up to 5 mmb when
low traffic . Between 1 - 3 mmb during peak times.
Am using cat 6 cable for all other wired connections.
Perhaps someone knows the best way to wire for
dependibility and full bandwidth. Thanks, greytape
