Back down to less than 15Mbps tonight - is this normal behavior for a 20Mbp connection?

Re: [Speed] slow in somerville, ma

No, I wouldn't say it is. What are some of your specs?
Hardware, OS...etc?

In the meanwhile we'll bump this up ~ maybe one of our unofficial officials can add more info

Thanks lilhurricane - it's only in the last few weeks I've noticed the drop off. Previously it was consistently 20Mbps and over (minus the few hiccups, obviously) - and there haven't been any changes to my hardware configuration, so I wouldn't think the issue was on my end. Seeing ~15Mbps tonight.

I'm running a macbook w/ os 10.6.8, connected to a wireless network set up on a time capsule, which has a hard line connection to the router.

thx

dbcn - Sorry to hear of your speed issues. I would like to take a look at your account and see if I can find anything that would be causing this speed. Would you please IM the name on your account to me so I can check it out?

Thanks

Re: [Speed] slow in somerville, ma

Greetings Somerville, MA

So a little bit ago I posted something about a problem with the switching across the network and what we went through to find that. (it’s in the Bethlehem thread). Suffice to say the same fix was applied to Somerville but it had to be backed out shortly after because in this unique hub it triggered another problem. Currently we are working on an alternate fix.

I’ll see if I can’t track down the next step later this morning and get back to you.
