  8. Is there any differences between a Cable CSS and a Fiber Optic CSS? I have Cox Cable new premier 15/2 service. I am using a CSS designed for use with Verizon FIOS, file is named Verizon_fios_DHCP_15000_2000.css What fields should I change if any, to optimize this for use on a cable connection? I am currently getting results like the following, but they fluctuate pretty wildly. Have seen them jump from 4M all the way to this high of 9M :::..

  10. WOW, these are fast to me. I am mostly impressed woth the Upload speeds. This is not even the highest they are offering. Cox in my area is now offering 15Mbps Upload and 2Mbps Download. I am actually thinking of paying more for the higher speeds, just to have it :::..

Mostly for the Upload speed to see if I can get it to the 2Mbps speed. Thanks in advance for any help
  11. Opps!! DOH. Sorry, Upload speeds are supposed to be 512K not 384K The package I am getting is 4Mbps down and 512Kbps Up. Thanks again for any help on this
  12. Thanks folks. Any tips on how to increase my upload speed a bit, without decreasing my DL speeds? I actually have Cable Nut loaded to obtain these results, I am using CCS labeled Cable & DSL 3500 384. Cox cable actually advertises my connection at 4000 DL and 384 UL. Any help is appreciated. Anyone have any ideas how to exceed the caps? Is there a legal way to do that? I know the Premium subscription allows upto 5000 DL, just wondering. Thanks again
  13. I listen to it every Sat that I can, its on for like 3 or 4 hours depending on what area you are in. Usually only get to listen for 30 minutes each weekend if that. Its good stuff for newbs basically. Every so often she has some cool news I have not heard about.
