[FL] Ultimate not so ultimate..

For the past few days on all of my machines, been getting slightly above 10 megs.. not the advertised 50 megs. Is there anything I can do to my PC to fix this before calling? The upspeed is just fine, but the down leaves something to be desired

Are you using an ancient windows XP?

EDIT: also it is not guranteed to get a full speeds, that is depends on the factor issues what you are getting.

Win XP SP 2, Win 7

I realize that but we should be getting at least close.. I thought something was fishy

Tried direct connection? just connect the winXP to the cable modem and rerun the test speed and disconnect the cable modem then connect the win7 to the cable modem once again and do the test speed and post your two results in here.

Yup, done last night. If this is all I'm going to get, I'm dropping to preferred since I hardly go over 200 megs anyway..
