Re: [IL] Ultra50?

I'm not sure what driver package you used before with the onboard NICs, but I remember older nVidia chipset driver installers including a software firewall that was a bit screwy. Maybe something similar happened in your case.

As for the speeds, I'm not too surprised that it's erratic at peak times. 50 Mbps seems like an awful lot to shove through two downstream channels when other neighborhood usage is involved. For consistent speeds, I'd say at least four channels would be ideal. That's something that's entirely up to Mediacom to deal with though.
