      Do you have any Wi-Fi hugs in your home? ( obviously if you have Wi-Fi, lol )

      I'm talking about when you're trying to use the Internet Via Wi-Fi while other members of your house uses it at the same time, slowing down your Internet.

      Edited: I can't remember if I posted this in the "Webmaster" section. Can a mod/admin move this thread to the "Internet" forum? Thanks!

      No. We have a fiber optic connection and I don't notice any slow-down and more then 1 device is usually online thru wifi at any given time. (My laptop, my brother's netbook, 3 PS3's, etc)

      Yeah, depending on who you're buying from, your connection will not slow-down, ;)

      There are some people that gets slow-downs when 5+ laptop users, 3 XBOX 360, 6 PS3 and a tablet connects to the same wireless router, ;)

      Can't say I have any problems myself with wi-fi in my house to be honest. We have a fibre optic broadband connection and usually have 3 xbox 360's, 2 computers and a laptop running from it plus I also use my phone when I am in the house and my iPod sometimes on wi-fi when I am in the house.
