Hmm, interesting how just a laptop can affect lag. Perhaps it is screwing with the latency somehow or it is a QoS issue.

200gb a month is fine, 50gb is pretty low.

Re: F American ISP's

200 GB a month is insane. You guys need to re-think how much time you spend at home in front of the TV/Computer. I just checked my router, I have never passed the 30 GB threshold in in the last 14 months and I'm one of those guys that uses Hulu, Netflix, Xbox, and Amazon prime.

Dirtbag59, your laptop might be a bot. If simply connecting it to the internet fcks up your internet connection speeds it's probably working for some guys in Russia.

Maybe it's time for him to backup his files, format the drive, and switch to Linux Mint.

But he'll probably become PirateDirtbag359 instead and grab a Windows crack after formatting.

I resent that. I'm all legitimate. Sure I visit streaming adult sites from time to time but I go there mostly for the comments.

In all seriousness though I love piracy because a lot of the great services we have now are the result of innovation brought on by the need to compete with file sharing. ITunes and widespread adoption of MP3 Players, brought on by piracy. YouTube, originally hosted a lot of copywritten content which was found on bittorrent sites. It almost certainly lead to the creation of Hulu and probably had an impact on Netflix deciding to go digital.

Rhapsody, Pandora, Steam. Some of the best products and services we have today came from the need to compete with file sharing and the results have been spectacular. I hope these kids continue to "steal" stuff because if this continues theres no telling what else will develop.

Not to derail this thread too much but seriously, your laptop is probably comprismised. Unless the modem and/or router have serious processing power issues, a laptop that is supposedly not sending out much data to the internet should not be affecting the connection.

And I cited software piracy, a different industry that doesn't benefit as much from piracy.
