Why the speed difference?
I can remote into a clients firewall (they have a Comcast account) across town and update his firewall firmware at the same time mine is updating.
If I wait till mine hits 75% before I log in to theirs and start their unit, it will finish before mine does. Same firewall, same source for the update. Roughly same advertised speeds on our accounts. Any time of day.
What gives Wave??!
Oh yea and I can almost hit my advertised speeds with multiple downloads when this happens.
I think they are screwing with things.

Is it *only* the firmware?
Can you download a large file from some other source and have it effected?

Im playing some more with this by logging into one of their machines via remote desktop and downloading various large files.
Ill try this for a few days and see if the time of day influences this but seems constant.
Downloads from Microsoft seem to max out my connection here but that seems to be about it tonight... I can go get Open Office on his right now at full speed and yet mine downloads at about 1.3 mbps.

Interesting notation from my router logs last night...
Well- since the change from a "Broadband Access Systems" device to a "Cisco" device (looked up the mac addresses) things seem much better here the last couple of days.
