We have Time Warner Internet service. We have two PCs(windows 7) and two Laptops(windows 8). We are paying for 100mbps our laptops on wifi average around 25mbps, the office computer (right next to the router) has a 3ft Ethernet cable connecting it to the router gets around 70mbps.
The other PC is in the garage about 40ft away its connetion comes from an ETech Commercial Electric command center in the attic. This computer averages 0.9mbps and most days doesn't have it at all.
Time Warner says the length of Cat5e is the reason for our poor connection. Should it really be making this huge a difference in our speed?
