how many mbps for use with a router?

Discussion in 'Broadband' started by Kolicha \(vinnieza & gio\), Sep 3, 2003.

  1. If I use a router and hook up 2 pc's (which are likely to use the connection
    at the same time) to it. Is it best to have a 512 kbps connection or a 1024
    kbps?
    Thanx, Vin

  2. Many organisations have 40+ users connected via 512k ADSL. But it
    depends on your requirements - if you plan to listen to the radio on
    each PC then maybe 3-4 PC's on a 512k link.

    If you don't mind me asking ...
    What data rates do you get transferring large files through VPN ?

    Thanks for the info.
    I thought I'd heard somewhere it was inefficient, but obviously isn't
    affecting you.
    I've never actually used it but was considering it.
    I guess I'll give it a go now.

  5. Hi Eric,

    I have a 512k ADSL connection and use a VPN Client (SecuRemote) to open a
    VPN connection to my client in Paris. I regularly download large zip files
    from their LAN - 50MB zip is currently taking about 20 - 30 mins. However,
    when the LAN in Paris is busy, download times are reduced quite a bit...

    Works fine for me though...

    regards,

    James

    One important bit of information that I missed off was that I'm not
    using any OS's native VPN client. Due to work requirements I use a
    VPN client developed by AT&T.
