Using a static IP and removing the default gateway worked for me. Before doing anything, run a command prompt and type in IPConfig /all. Note the DNS server address, and whether you're using DHCP or not. Go to Network and Internet settings in Windows, then Change Adapter settings. Select the wired connection, then edit its properties. Select Internet ...

As long as you keep both ends same, it doesn't really matter how you align the wires. You can align them any way you want, but you also have to do this on the other end (if you aren't making a cross-cable).

As others have commented/answered, the "wire layout" (i.e. the color code) doesn't matter, the cable type (5/5e/6) determines signal properties (i.e. how far the signal can travel and at what "speed", etc.) so as long as the cable is POE capable (any 5+ cable, or CAT3 if less power is needed) and the switch/device is POE compliant (802.3af-at), the "color ...

With wireless, there are a number of things you can check or try to see if you can improve the available bandwidth. You really aren't even beginning to stretch the limits of the wireless or wired connections, though. If just the wireless is slow, avoiding interference is best. 1a. You can try changing the wireless channel that the Netgear is set to, ...

Shhhhh...don't tell the masses. My understanding is that this is simply a lie & I wish they couldn't do this. Per some enlightening amazon reviews maybe this is the speed between the two power-line adapter devices (the house/AC wiring), but indeed its crippled coming out of the actual physical interface port. Most people don't care too much since they ...

It's not uncommon for networking devices to list the signaling speeds of their ports individually without regard for whether the bandwidth offered by the other ports (or the embedded CPU controlling it all) can successfully sustain data flows at the speeds afforded by the fastest port. It's more an indication that it can interoperate with other devices ...

Yes they really are. I have one such cable and it works well. Twenty meters of untwisted copper wires simply won't be able to work at 100Mbit/s.

No; POE does not require any different or special cabling.
