    I think it depends mostly on your upload speed. It seems that 1 MBit/s up can still handle about 10 players with a bit of lag.

    Oh man... So I'm not the only one! I have the same problem with the Comcast modem/router. I had AT&T originally but I upgraded to Comcast because of the added UL speed - little did I know I would start having this problem. And I can't complain because I would have to explain what 'server' is to the dumb reps... :(

    But yeah; 30Mb/4Mb Comcast here. I haven't heard of any bandwidth limits though... whoops. I host a 15 player max, 24/7, there's lag but I tell people to get Spoutcraft or Craftproxy and usually it solves their problem. :D

    Cosmic Break

    my server 4gb of ram, ~50 plugins averages 5-7 players at a time. 3 worlds, runs just fine, 10MB download speed, 3MB upload.

    server is even good enough to run its own site, along with MySQL database.

    check it out!

    shoulda mentioned its not a home pc, but one i get almost free usage by a company in which i found a loophole in thier TOS.

    Yes, suprisingly i do.

    It's on a laptop, Intel Pentium 4GB Ram, (idkwtf graphix because it's integrated D:)
    Internet Conn is about 1.5mbps down 0.2mbps up :D But it is still fine with at least 5 players. Oh, if you haven't seen my signature it has 55+ plugins at last count ;o

    Man, I just want FiOS or any other asynchronous fiber optics in my area but apparently we won't have it any time soon because they don't have the base networks set up or some crap like that. I'm begging my parents to move up north or something just for this reason. With a 25 megabit upstream, for example, I could increment my player count to like 30 (according to this) and even 60 if I double the RAM.

    It just sucks being stuck like this. I ask for donations but what am I going to do with the money? Get a faster processor? Not gonna help...
  8. I run my server at home on a 256K. My home is in Hong Kong and with CraftProxy, there's only around 50ms delay from players in AUS and 20ms from US players.
    i7 2.5GHz (I forgot, cos i'm currently away from the computer)
    8GB RAM
    Win7 64Bit
    GeForce 210
    250GB Hard Disk (lost 100 for the stupid HP and essential system files)

    I run it on my laptop:
    Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i5 CPU
    M 430 @ 2.27GHz, 2267 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)
    Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 4.00 GB
    Total Physical Memory 3.68 GB
    Available Physical Memory 772 MB

    Is that good or bad? (quote :eek:)

    Home hosted, dedicated. Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
    i5 2500k, 16 GB ram with an ocz agility 3, SSD.

    Runs on fiber, 100 mbit up / down ^^

    Costs me about 10 euro a month in electricity. That's all, no bandwidth limits ;)
  11. I have a sun fire server at home. Double quad core xeons and 12Gb memory, expandable to 128Gb. Dedicated iSCSI SAN storage couple terabytes raid, Procurve network switches. I host servers for couple f my friends on demand (custom maps, etc...) Not dedicated to minecraft though. Home dns, file serving, mail server (with our own domain), some thin client desktops all in vms. All for personal/home use. Costed like hell and no profit... Kinda like a hobby for us :D

    Intel Xeon Sandy Bridge 3.4ghz x4 - 8 threads
    16gbs DDR3 1333mhz RAM
    2 60gb SataIII SSD's
    and a 190 MM fan in the side of the case just for sh*ts and giggles lol

    I run a home server just with my friends. I have a piece of sh*t computer (1GB RAM lol), and I'm not sure what my internet connection is like, but it runs smoothly with 1-7 players, excepts for lag spikes which happen randomly and annoys my friends alot. They still play on it though for some reason. I'm moving it to a better computer soon though, and will look into seeing if I should get better a internet connection. Though since I'm 15 and still live with my dad, I'd have to get him to manage that.
