Re: connection issues

I did notice the max rate came up but speed tests arent really reflecting it. I am guessing that will be unused overhead? Thanks again for your help

You are most welcome.
Typical speedtest will not show your max rate values. Those will kick in when you do very large sustained block transfers. Most speed tests won't do that amount of data transfer.

I'm not sure if you mention which 2wire you have, but you can try the Internet Connection Monitor (still available in some here) 192.168.1.254/xslt?PAGE=M01

Runs with Java. Then do a very large file transfer/download that can keep up and you should be able to see how the max. rate kicks in. The tool is great when it works, but it doesn't always work for me, which is why perhaps they stopped officially supporting it - but it's still in the 1700, 2700, 2701 FW.
