Re: [Speed Issues] Not getting anywhere near my advertised speed
do you have the 30 or 100 package? Also, what is the cable modem plugged into? I had an old linksys router, and it maxed out at ~28mbits (older unit). When plugged in directly, I could get ~60mbits (back when I had ultra60). I now have a firewall that I built and I can get over 100mbits at times
i would imagine based on what little im paying that its the 30 package. i am running an older linksys wireless router as well. and my modem is about as old. just a small black box a little bigger than a deck of cards!
edit: ugh. based on charter chat i have the 15mb package. why would the speed test show more then advertised?
Speed tests measure speed as bits per second; noted as *bps.
Download managers generally report speed in Bytes per second; noted as *Bps.
There are eight bits in a Byte. Make sure you are not confusing the two. For 25Mbps I would expect the maximum download speed to be ~3.125MBps. Because of unpredictable variables between your Internet connection and your source's Internet connection, getting 2.5MBps down is doing reasonably well for a 25Mbps connection. -- Norman ~Oh Lord, why have you come ~To Konnyu, with the Lion and the Drum
