Re: Bypassing Router

Assuming normal NIC settings, it should on paper be faster than going through a router. I'm no expert by any means, but I've never run into a router that employed any kind of acceleration. So I'm gonna guess it's a coincidence.

Speeds within the Ku-band community really sucked yesterday, but are back to normal today. Perhaps your switch from router to NIC coincided with that change.

Been having broswing issues also. Called today, had me do router bypass. Didn't help. Shut modem down for at least 20 minutes while I went on roof to check connections. they were clean as day installed. restarted modem and things are at normal. Not sure if modem needed restart or they actually did something.
