gigabit network was created by garfi3ld
We have been slowly working towards changing our network over to a full gigabit network for the last few lans. I am pleased to anounce that we have our first of 5 switches on the way. It should be here before the lan even! On top of that, oh4sho is nice enough to bring two gig switches with him, we plan on atleast giving everyone a taste of what we are looking to go to.

Of course, this is only the first of five. We will again have a few different things going on at the lan that will help contribute toward adding to our collection. Here is just a preview:

1: If you havn't already noticed on our registration. The Raffle ticket section was updated this lan. We included a stipulation that we will be handing out ONE raffle ticket for anyone who donates $10 or more toward the network fund, this is limited to a max of one per person. This is a donation only, it does not apply to tickets to the 50/50 drawing. (if you are going to take advantage of this, you must buy your ticket when you come in)

2: we will again be selling soda for 25 cents. This soda was bought by me and the money will go into the network fund.

3: We will again do a 50/50 drawing, half of the money at the end of the event will go into the network fund. The other half will go to the winner that is drawn.

4: We also picked up LanOC stickers that we will be selling for $5, also going into the network fund.


I'm looking forward to seeing everyone next week!

Got a gigabit switch a few months ago from NewEgg for around $30. 8 ports, loaded with power saving options. I love it. :)

How many people at the Lan can run gigabit connections? I'm curious, as my laptop appears to be limited to 100Mbps on ethernet. Granted, it's cheap, but I wondered how much uptake there has been on gigabit support. I was all for the idea, but of course, there's not so much rush on it if a large group of users will not gain or experience a difference. Not criticizing the idea of getting into gigabit, but trying to save the Lan some cash, if some/most of us won't really be utilizing expensive gigabit connections.

I would estimate that 90% of our attendees have a gig connection. Of the few that may not have it, I doubt that if you don't have gig capability's that you would need it. But as a whole, it will help prevent maxing out network connections causing slowdowns for people while sharing files and keep in game pings down

how old is your laptop?

As far as I know, every new motherboard sold has Giga-net on it. With someone (I wonder who?) sharing multiple terabytes worth of movies and shows, it helps.

Both Erika and my laptop have 1Gb NICs. My laptop is a wicked old Compaq Evo, too.

Yea, well my board has dual gig LAN's, suck it! j/k.

Should be a vast improvement over 100.

Gig networks are like paychecks adding a zero makes it a whole lot better!

Ok I guess my laptop has gigabit, just didn't announce it because I was connected to 100Mb internet. I don't really understand why it does that. Ok so gigabit would be awesome then, I'll consider reserving a seat on a table not on the far right. Good to know how the tech is doing.
So, are there 10Gb cards out there? Or is that just a pipe dream right now?

Edit: thought about it, now occupied mah seat!

1 gb file 10/100 = 5 -10 mintues 1 gb file 1000 port = less than a minute. This looks like a file sharing lan. I will open my 650gb of data to the world. Make sure your set up to share!!!!

Well at least file sharing will be less disruptive to the lan. I personally come to game. But I do have Crysis 2 on shared...
