    We have crap internet at the apartments by my school. The school internet is really fast tho. We are forced to use only wifi so the internet is really slow sometimes because the routers aren't built for the traffic levels they see. I wish they gave use an Ethernet option so I could hook my gaming laptop directly to the internet and not kill every ones internet when watching youtube. My laptop has the ability to take over a quarter of the network bandwidth when doing taxing things like downloading files and watching HD video.

    And here I thought I was bad by putting packet sniffers on my colleges routers.

    I just have an ASUS G-series laptop it has an advanced wifi antenna that automatically forces the network to give it additional bandwidth when needed, but when I'm not doing something intensive I barely see dial-up speeds. My current network speed well just browsing is about 50 Kbps with only 0-1% network use. When on youtube its about 2-4 Mbps but with about 25% use of the network. My roommates always know when I'm downloading because they can't game and their videos don't load.

    Well shoot, this was faster than I thought it was. This is at work (at a school). I will do it at home later but its usually about 20mb/s download and dont remember upload.
