Okay so I've no idea if this would be the right place for this, but I run a current 1.7.4 Minecraft Server off of an old Compaq Presario 6000 Dual-Core system (Running Ubuntu Linux some 12.04 LTS). Ran like crap with the old 512Mb RAM, but STILL PLAYABLE.... Roughly 2 weeks ago I acquired a 2GB RAM set from Crucial and it runs like a beaut with minor issues. The problem is I still have to put in a solid state drive so it will keep up with the timing and operate smoother. I've found my old WifiMAX USB Drive, which would give the machine capabilities to allow a PSP(Original-Fashioned BRICK) to connect to any Router/Modem through a ethernet-connected machine. Ages ago, back when I first played Minecraft when we would be interrupted to be attacked by skeletons and anything else that would go bump in the night... I routed the signals to give the machine wifi instead of the PSP.
I've noticed my wire does appear to have bents to it where I assumed the door or someone stepped on the cord to change it's physical shape. It's roughly 250 FT, because the 2WIRE system that I use it far away into my roommates room, of which I really have no personal access to. I know a direct route through a wired connection would be easier and the fastest possibility because it doesn't travel through the air, meaning it doesn't have to fight all of that interference to be connected(I guess I'm pretty bad at explaining stuff haha sorry :'(* ).
I also have a second question, but is it possible to have Port-Forwarding enabled and still connect through LAN?!
Can anyone shine some insight on this matter here?!
your second question:
I think so not a 100% sure cause using like 192.168.0.7 is your local ip and yor external ip is the one people can join.
your first question:
I have no idea, but im preety sure Ethernet is better cause it's directly linked to the Router through a cord rather than wifi which in fact using a ty Wifi company would effect the performance.
Yeah, that's what I was saying to Lotus, but some people say wifi is better and it's half and half from what I'm seeing on the internet. I guess it's because of how technology evolves over time. Things get better like for instance my MacBook Pro, although much older than my roomies spouses' Chrome Book is newer than my Mac... The wifi receiving enabled device is far more faulty than the one on my Mac. New doesn't always mean it's crap, just cheaply made, but for the price you pay for it, it's not that bad. I got my Mac for 200 bucks and it just does the job I need it to do. But I hate her saying how my server is apparently going to destroy her CB when she is on it for 18 hours of the day playing MC and how it laggs. Server really has nothing to do with it- it's all of the processing and cooling capabilities of the machines used to play MC.
Well I've not tried that other idea, but as soon as I can acquire some more funds I need to get my AOS some service so I can use my phone again and then test my IP connections through the infrastructure of my interwebs.
