    Question YouTube buffers quickly at the start and then just stops

    I've been having a really weird problem when I watch YouTube on my pc. Basically, whenever I play a video it buffers quickly like the grey bar jumps really far out and creates a sizeable gap over where I'm currently at on the video but then it just stops moving. When the red bar catches up to...

    [SOLVED] Cat 5e Capped at 100Mbps Due to Split Wiring

    Hi everyone, I searched the forum first and I think I know the problem but since I'm inexperienced with working with cables I want to be extra sure.

    [SOLVED] My PC is the only device being limited to 250Mbps down and up. How to fix?

So I contacted my ASUS about my mobo and they said it could be bad LAN hardware. Though I asked them if I could get a network card...

    Question Battery backup and impact on connectivity

    Disclaimer: I'm not a tech-head. I wish I were, but I'm not. I know exactly enough to understand that I know almost nothing. With that said, here's my issue. I recently moved to a small beach town in Panama. I am a remote worker, so connectivity is a thing. My speeds are barely enough to...

    Question While SOA is running my internet speed drops to <1Mbps from ~90Mbps

    If I start SOA (Seraphims Of Astraeus) my internet speed drops to <1Mbps from ~50Mbps. This is quite an issue as it makes the multiplayer of the game unplayable, this is a guess btw, as I've never been able to start the game without this issue.
