so far i have upgraded my ethernet cable from cat 5e to cat 7. No Noticable change in SQ, but I’m sure the shielding doesn’t hurt. I have a ac3 power cord coming in the next few days, i will post my findings there. I also changed my IP and now have a faster internet 150 , new modem/router box ( all in one). I definitely noticed an improvement with this change. I am thinking that my problem may lie in my network topography.
At present i have modem/router all in one. where i have my NAS and perfectwave both connected. I have heard a difference with the upgrade in hardware and internet service. My question now would be, should i buy separate devices rather than have the modem/router all in one device.
Will i notice a difference if I had separates?
Can someone advise me on what the network topography should look like?
I have read that i should have my audio network on a dedicated switch, would adding a switch after my modem/router (all in one), with only my NAS and perfectwave dac connected to the switch be beneficial?
Or would i be recommended to buy, a modem, router, switch?
I really am confused as to how my network should be, if anyone has advise i would be very grateful, any links etc
