What speeds are you currently getting when connected directly to the modem (without router)?

Try to reboot your modem also the storms last night knocked some peoples channels off.

Funny thing is the Upstream is always good, the Downstream always sucks!

Your problem is ping time to that test site. 83ms is way to high. Here's my result:

I know it is, but that was the lowest ping i could get yesterday, today is much better.

Try a server that doesn't suck. Omaha and Minnetonka servers are shit to say the least. Use Chicago hosted by comcast or just use the speedtest.comcast.net site, least those servers can handle it.








I have no problems with my speeds at all, its just most of speedtest.nets servers are crap and should be removed imo.

Your right, those 2 due suck, as I just tried them both and got the same results as you. I've always liked this one, and have it set as my preferred.
