If you want to connect your computer to the Internet or your home network with a cable, you have two options. You can either buy an already finished cable with connectors in the required length in the store, or you can make it yourself. The home production of the network cable is necessary especially if you need to pass it through a narrow hole into which the connector doesn't fit. You usually have to install it after passing the cable through a small hole. Read how to make such a cable and how to repair that current one.
A purchase of a router is waiting for you, but when you look at the offer, you only see boxes that differ in price and appearance? In that case, a basic overview of important parameters can not only save you a lot of money, but also significantly speed up the Internet.
On this site you can test your internet connection for free.
We recommend you to lower or stop all other internet activities during the test. In other cases the test results are less precise.
Outputs of this test:
From the user’s perspective, everything is simple. In the web browser, click on the measurement button and wait. Before starting the speed test, it is important to deactivate all tasks, applications and devices that could use the capacity to connect to the Internet. The results would be affected by that and you would not find out anything, or the conclusions would not have the required notification value.
The technical solution and the background of the speed test itself are complex, but to explain it in a few words and very simplistically, the test simulates a situation in which you download or upload data. The measured values are calculated depending on the speed of these transmission. You can test the speed of up to 30 test servers located in geographically different locations.
