So it’s been a while since I’ve sat in my chair in our computer room at home. With the way my desk was set up, my computer was sitting to the left of my desk right in the corner of the room. Seems however there’s something in that particular spot which saw my poor computer trapped in some kind of makeshift Faraday cage, so basically I was unable to connect the Internet, it sucked.
But I’ve moved my monitor into the corner and my laptop to the right side of my desk and everything is awesome again. Much better than the alternative, which was to spend $400 on another Airport Extreme to put in our room to extend the network further.
So here’s the latest SpeedTest result from my desk. Our maximums are 100Mb down and 40Mb up… so not bad really.
