Yeah, Ive tried everything that I know of. I called the cable company and the said they were going to send a tech out on thursday. I wish I knew how to speed it up myself . It seems real low for cable. :bang:

If its a line problem you cant fix it yourself :mrgreen: Unless you understand the cable network in your area, have the necessary tools and info to diagnose and fix the problem and have a big ladder to reach the cable lines (or a hammer to break into the cable box) :rolleyes::mrgreen:

HI ya; go to www.drtcp.com. download DrTCP.

There is a testing program that will tell you the best settings that should gett you going faster. I hope this helps. :mrwinky:

 

P.s some cable company's like cox will put filters on the cable for your modem..

if that is the case I dont know what to tell you. I have cox and I was able to download 98561kb a second with this program.

Make sure that you are using a correct ethernet cat 5 patch cable (sometimes you might get a crossover cable by mistake). Try another port on the router. Try a differnet NIC card. And finally, make sure that you have the latest firmware installed for your router. Edited by aeroman10
