Right, but when you do this, you still have to click the start auction button, which takes time. But I may be doing it differently.

I had 16 items scheduled at 7:30. 3:20 to post all 16.

I am on WiFi in my house, would it be better to do it via a wired connection?

Should not matter unless weak signal

There's a setting to check. You can specify that they load with an interval. It is set by default at 1 minute. Don't know if that's the issue.

Look on the event tab, you might have it set to 1 minute intervals.  Which I actually do reccomend so you can let buyers who my buy multiple items get into multiple bidding wars!

They all listed at the same time, so no interval was set. I used to do that when I only did 10-20 listings a week, but with my normal 200 listing load, 3.5 hours is just too long of a finish window for me. I have a lot of regulars who show up at 10:20 for the last minute bidding. They know my schedule and I'd hate to change it too much on them.

I really can't wait till I get regulars..If ever.

How many of you Garage Sale peeps were previously using Turbo Lister and can offer direct comparison of upload speeds?

Turbo Lister is slow as balls on Thursday nights. Items with 10 pics of 1600x1600 pixels each can take anywhere between 3 and 10 minutes to upload, but are most commonly in the 4-5 minute range per item. I know from speedtest.net that my ISP is slow for uploads but I'm inclined to believe the Thursday night slowness is an ebay problem, because the same items will only take 2-3 min each if uploaded during non-peak listing times. Is this about par for the course with Turbo Lister? Does Garage sale upload & host your pics on non-ebay servers?

You're uploading 200 listings per week?

Wired is -ALWAYS- better than WiFi. Depending on distance you can lose up to half your speed because of Wireless. If you can run a cable to your router and computer I always suggest you do it. More stable, faster, and less of a headache in the long run.

As long as you are running a modern g or n router and getting a decent signal on that fancy new macbook, your wifi is probably fine. If you're running an antiquated b router, definitely get a new one. Otherwise, for the vast majority of people, your ISP's speed is the rate limiting factor. Wifi g runs around 54 Mbps and n is something like 300 or 400 Mbps. If you check your home internet connection on speedtest.net you will probably find it considerably slower than 50 Mbps. You can shut off the wifi, hook up an ethernet cable and run the test again, and in all likelihood you will see no significant difference. Wired/wifi made no difference when I tested it, and my ISP speeds top out around 18 Mbps down on a good day, and a dogshit slow 0.3 Mbps up.

This is true. Wifi has pretty much caught up with wired (if you have a stable, decent provider and decent router), and with the new gigabit networks and gigabit routers slowly making their way into the mainstream, wired internet will probably go the way of the dodo, except for special circumstances.

Wow, I finally got my label printer setup so I can use the Ebay/Paypal shipping label generator... I think I saved ~$4 per package on shipping costs today. That's $16 for today! This thing's going to pay for itself in no time!
