Guys, I know that this question must have been asked - and answered - many time, but… At least one positive thing about growing older and more forgetful, is that you meet new people and learn new things every day!! I’ll qualify my oft-asked question even more by mentioning the fact that there have been quite a few advances in networking protocols and computer processing. So, I have to wonder - maybe I wondered this before? I digress…Since I have upgraded my modem and router network, I wonder if upgrading my old Cat 5 Ethernet to a 6, 7…or whatever the latest “number” is, will make any difference. I can’t help but wonder too whether plugging in a “better” (i.e.: more expensive) USB cable between my hard drive and dedicated laptop (server) would in the slightest make any difference…I mean could the little packet things be shaking hands more effectively!!!
For what it’s worth…
