Can someone fact check this Cox guy I spoke with? He told me he's sending a guy out to check signal. If that doesn't work I upgrade my 8x4 cable modem to a 32x8 modem [my choice he didn't suggest that as much as imply I should] and if that doesn't fix my issue I upgrade my plan from 150 Mbps to 300
My issue is my cabled computers drop during gaming sessions.
He said that's probably a signal issue. Also said I wont get the full use of my connection with my 8x4 modem, it's too small.
But if the signal isn't connected directly to my home, meaning I replace the cable, I'm not sure there's a solution. Basically means my neighborhood has sucked up all the available Mbps and I have to wait till they fix the volume. They are adding upwards of 50 homes to my neighborhood, two developments are going up less than 100 ft from my door.
I've got a 13 year old daughter watching Netflix and the kid on the phone, wife's not using much but me and the other computer are pulling 50 Mbps each he's telling me, Tarkov and League of Legends. It's kind of a short window while we wait for dinner so we all hit the internet at the same time. I figured it was an equipment issue based on the load
But the information I'm getting from google says I'm not coming that close to 150 mbps even with 5 phones connected, 2 streaming and 2 wired computers running online games.
Oh well, apologies I figured I'd drop in and ask. I miss being here. Work life and a terrible cold kinda took over my waking life for awhile. Hope you all are doing well. Gotta go.
