How To Speed Up Home Internet

  • Anyone wondering how to speed up your home internet without dropping a ton of cash on an overpriced mesh Wi-Fi system will be happy to hear that it’s much easier and less expensive than you think.
  • If you’re sick of slow internet speeds and “buffering” on your computer, TV, or video game console, there’s a simple device that will be a game-changer for you.
  • Before you do something drastic like buying a new router or a pricey mesh Wi-Fi system, check out the TP-Link AV1000 Gigabit Powerline Internet Kit, which is just $49.99 on Amazon.

When you’re trying to watch a video or stream a game, slow internet speeds and buffering can be your worst nightmare. It’s so aggravating, but it happens all the time. What you might not realize though, is that there’s a wonderfully easy way for most people to fix this problem.

A lot of the time, it’s your Wi-Fi connection that is the main source of the issue. Sometimes there’s interference, or if you live in a big household it could be a congestion problem. It could also be an issue with range, and you can get away with a cheap fix by picking up a Wi-Fi range extender. The best-selling TP-Link model on Amazon is on sale right now for just $19.99, or you can go all-out with TP-Link’s fastest extender ever for $89.99.

But if you want the best possible fix with the fastest and most reliable connection, you need to ditch wireless on your device and switch to a wired internet connection. Of course, no one wants to spend hundreds of dollars installing Ethernet, and we would never suggest that. Why bother when you can instantly transform any regular old power outlet

Xbox Series X Backward Compatibility Test: Older Games Double Performance

KEY POINTS

  • Backward compatibility has long been desired for newer consoles to play older generation games
  • A video testing the backward compatibility of the Xbox Series X yielded positive results
  • With fewer games at launch due to the pandemic, this is welcome news for Xbox Series X

The issue of backward compatibility is often raised when a new console from a line of previous consoles is on the horizon.

Having access to a library of older games from the PlayStation family for the PlayStation 5 or older Xbox games for the Xbox Series X makes the wait for newer titles a bit more bearable. It’s become enough of a concern that no less than the CEO of PlayStation had to declare the PS5’s backward compatibility recently.

It would seem that the Xbox Series X does very well when it comes to backward compatibility. Previous generation games, including “Rise of the Tomb Raider,” “Final Fantasy XV” and “Monster Hunter World,” were tested on the Xbox Series X in a video from Digital Foundry.

The results were nothing short of staggering as the older games ran twice as well, if not better, on the next-gen console from Microsoft. Games that are locked at 30 frames per second on Xbox One are able to easily hold a locked 60 frames per second on the Xbox Series X, even with upgrades in resolution.

Digital Foundry noted that it is sometimes hard to tell how much of a jump in performance there is because of the 60 frames per second lock on most games, even though the performance is likely higher than double in many cases.

With fewer games launching beside the Xbox Series X on Nov. 10 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for games from older generations to be able to play
