comment Using multiple ethernet switches to connect shorter ethernet cable runs with a mix of cat5e and cat6
Thanks @jcbermu - re. the latency if im connecting devices such as printers (requires access to local network) and smart tvs (requires access to internet for Netflix etc) would you think there might be a scenario where these where effected by latency, ie. they wouldn't preform their primary functions correctly ?

comment Is there a downside to configuring a modem to use a dynamic IP when it has a static IP from the ISP?
I guess its a static ip becuase my ip address is written on the contract with the provider Dedicated ip : xxxxxx, is there such a thing as a dynamic ip on a 2 yr lease (the length of the contract) ?

comment analyizing why wifi / internet connection is slow
When you say "What technology are you using exactly?" - am i correct in thinking your referring to router / modem, rather than devices. We are using a BT 2wire 2700hgv (which is supplied by the network BT) - although ive also got a netgear range max dgnd3300v2 which i could use if it helped

comment Website that is blocked at router / modem level still accesable
thanks ill check this out next time im connected to that router and let you know, the other option is that i might connect a netgear router coming out of our combi modem/router and get everyone to connect to that as that has more advanced blocking features.

@Ashtray - Just tried it now as well as adding http://twitter.com, same problem still goes through i think it may have something to do with the fact that it redirects to https://twitter.com although that is blocked also

comment Speeding up ping
You mentioned torrents, we run Google Drive quite extensively (which i suppose is a long stream but not very wide) and we also sync between machines using dropbox do you think either of those could be causing the problem ?

comment Second wifi router for internal LAN file transfer - freeing up main internet wifi signal
Most of the machines are laptops and are taken home at night, taken to meets or moved around the office, its also quite a pain to run have lots of cables running around, as we dont have a raised floor.
