Re: [GA] Internet Slowdown

Guess I am the only one....I think it is network congestion. During the day today, I was back to normal speeds...now I am crawling again. This stinks.

I have a Linksys CM100 cable modem. It has been working great up until recently. Again, let me reiterate...my speeds are great during the day, the slow down is just at night.

I just checked my speed again, and I am up to around 6Mbps...so I am really thinking this is just a congestion issue. Anyone from cox out there that can check to see if my node is overloaded?

Well I suggest you think about upgrading to a D3 modem, if your speed problems continue during evening hours(peak usage). Because your signal levels look fine, and I am about 99% sure a D3 modem will get rid of the slowdowns during prime times hours. As your current modem connects to a single downstream capable of 38mbps of bandwidth. Which is shared on your node, with others using cox. So its not hard for bandwidth to go to crap in the evenings, if everyone in your area is watching stuff like Netflix, and youtube video's. With a D3 modem you can connect to up to 4-8 downstream channels depending on modem you get, and up to 4 upstream channels. Which means there will be more bandwidth available, and less chances of speed slowdowns during peak usage hours.
