Sweet! That is awesome how you ran that. How do you use them symmetrically to create one connection. I don't have a connection I can piggyback. Mine WITHOUT Piggybacking is 20MBPS so mine still beats "your" connection. Not including the piggyback speed haxie.

I modded a wifi router and a network driver on my linux computer (router connected to computer) then I connected another router to the computer and modded that one so that it would transmit over wifi to my other computers. (The fastest it can get is 50mbs)

Ouch, four points at which it can fail. I like to minimize the number of parts in case of failure. Ease of diagnosis and repair is crucial.

The speed makes up for it, and it's pretty stable...

Nope, it is not incorrect. Not a bad connection. But not sterling.
