I dont know allot about LANS or network connections. Im on a university network thing, i dont know much more than that but ill try and explain. there are two apartment type buildings with a bunch of rooms, our internet is supplied by abc communications. there are four bedrooms in a dorm, each with its own wallkack and Download Limit. me and my roomates can play games over the connection (like LAN) apart from that i dont know what type of network it is. when my other roomates send stuff back and forth over (big files 1-10 gigs) the transfer goes really fast, and the files are through in minutes. but when they try and send it to me, it goes like 50Kb/s( as opposed to like 50000Kb/s) somewhere i read something about changing to full duplex, but i dont know how, if anyone knows how i can speed up the connection, help me out.
