Hey everyone; I recently built a computer and I'm using an integrated NIC (only because I'm too lazy to buy my own) on two PC's. My current PC is right next to the router, with a patch (Straight-Through) cable running to Port 1 on the Verizon FiOS router, and the Internet speed is incredible. However..I have my custom PC upstairs, and I wired a 100' Cat6 Patch cable through the floor, and onto the ceiling, and dropping down so I can directly connect to the router (can't trust wireless all that much), and I have static IP addressing set for both PC's. My main question(s) are: -Why is the Internet connection much slower on the PC upstairs, than the one right next to the router? Could it be the cable and the data termination after some specified length of cable? I'm not entirely sure. -Could I bridge this network so I can get out on the Internet at the same speeds as this one? (I tried to bridge it earlier, but an error occured saying that I need two LAN connections, but I only have 1 NIC in each PC). Please, let me know; I'm interested in your responses. *I've never done a network bridge before, so please let me know if I'm doing something wrong.
