Re: Ughh... wacky inconsistant results...
said by sbrook:I don't know if that's really the case Stuart... I do ocassionally get 1200+, but its rare, so I don't think that I'm limited in this way. It used to be very stable 1200+ when they first implemented the cap, but has since deteriorated to pretty inconsistant results.
HiVolt, Since you're on a TeraPro, I suspect that you've got a TeraLink CMTS card that is hardware capped for download at 6 times the upload speed. (I gather there are cards that are 4,6,8 times). The hardware capping overrides the software cap.
So, in reality your download cap is not 1.5 Mbits/sec but actually 6 * 192 = 1.152 Mbits/sec, which explains your speeds.
When they implemented the caps on me when I had the Terayon, I had a 4 times cmts card ... so I had a cap of 768 K which gave me a flat out speed of about 750K, normally about 700K.
