Doing so would end up denying bandwidth to BOTH ...

by OldER Mycroft In reply to dividing broadband speed

You are assuming that both computers would simultaneously use all their internet resources at exactly the same time. Given the number of variables, including differing times of the day, varying internet loads, changeable bandwidth availability, different servers loads and speeds of communication, system loads on each computer - the act of dividing your bandwidth by two, giving half to each computer is totally impracticable.

If you simply connect both computers to a router, allowing the hardware to deliver the available bandwidth to whichever computer is active at any given moment, you will derive a much more efficient sharing of available bandwidth.

Let's, for the sake of argument, create a perfect 8MB internet bandwidth World.

Consider Computer #1 is busy with a DOWNLOAD of something while Computer #2 is performing an UPLOAD.

With your divided system Computer #1 would be downloading at 4.00MB/s and Computer #2 would be uploading at 0.20MB/s.

Left to the router to decide, Computer #1 would be downloading at 8.00MB/s and Computer #2 would be uploading at 0.40MB/s.

If both computers WERE ever doing exactly the same thing at the same time, then the lower bandwidth speeds would inevitably apply, but ONLY while they were duplicating their workloads. For the remainder of their operating time, each computer would have the maximum bandwidth available. :)

sounds like you just want to share your connection - just get a router...
