  9. Hello LB: I was getting similar speeds to yours with a 15/2 connection, it turned out to be my firewall & antivirus (I was using Mcafee) after getting rid of it and installing different antivirus & firewall my speeds more than doubled so it is now where it should be, . just curious;, "What are you using for firewall & a/v???"

  10. Well, I know that Norton will slow you down some, I tried it b4 settling for Antivir Guard & Sygate personal (free) this combination works better for me;.perhaps it is true that "some of the best things in life are free" vitico66
  11. url]http://www.free-av.com/ this a/v is free and got great reviews at Majorgeeks.com vitico66
  12. well, it took me a week to finally figure out what was holding me to 5500/6500 kbps download , when Im paying for 15/2 mbps( verizon fios) vitico66

  14. good morning all: wow, thanks to all for the suggestions and by the way, my fios pkg is: 15/2 Mbps so i apologize for the error, tell you what, I think I read 75% of all the posts in this forum . and something kept jumping out at me : (MCAFEE!!!!!!) - what I did is completely remove Mcafee and all its traces, (somewhat a difficult task because of how bloated they make this garbage) by the way, i had "viruscan9","personal firewall" and "quick clean" (all Mcafee products), then ran the test and this is what I got: :::..

Thank again to all and keep up the good work: VITICO66 by the way: the only tweak I did was go to netservices.verizon.net and did their auto optimize. so I wonder if I could still benefit from tweaking

Just got my FIOS installed yesterday morning, the FIOS package ss the 15/5-mbps- and as you can see in my scores, all I've been able to get is: -10/1.25 - the tech that installed the fios was getting about the same, but tried with his verizon laptop and it jumped to 14.1/4.25 mbps so he decided that it was my rig that needed some tweaking, well, followed the suggestions on the first sticky and tips on your main forum but improvement was minimal,(if any) , also had my settings "optimized" by verizon in their fios site. anyways , perhaps I,m missing something that may be obvious to some but not to me. thanks in advance for your help; vitico66 here are my rig vitals: --------[ Summary ]----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Computer: Computer Type ACPI Multiprocessor PC Operating System Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition OS Service Pack Service Pack 2 DirectX 4.09.00.0904 (DirectX 9.0c) Motherboard: CPU Type Intel Pentium 4 530, 3215 MHz (15 x 214) Motherboard Name Asus P5GD2 (3 PCI, 3 PCI-E x1, 1 PCI-E x16, 4 DDR2 DIMM, Audio, Gigabit LAN) Motherboard Chipset Intel Grantsdale i915P System Memory 1024 MB (DDR2 SDRAM) BIOS Type AMI (03/21/05) Display: Video Adapter RADEON X600 Series Secondary (256 MB) Video Adapter RADEON X600 Series (256 MB) 3D Accelerator ATI Radeon X600 (RV370) Monitor Dell E193FP [19" LCD] (G6566543U0P0) Multimedia: Audio Adapter Intel 82801FB ICH6 - High Definition Audio Controller [b-1] Storage: IDE Controller Intel® 82801FB Ultra ATA Storage Controllers - 2652 IDE Controller Intel® 82801FB/FBM Ultra ATA Storage Controllers - 266F SCSI/RAID Controller ITE IT8212 ATA RAID Controller Floppy Drive Floppy disk drive Disk Drive Maxtor 6Y160P0 (160 GB, 7200 RPM, Ultra-ATA/133) Disk Drive Generic USB SD Reader USB Device Disk Drive Generic USB CF Reader USB Device Disk Drive Generic USB SM Reader USB Device Disk Drive Generic USB MS Reader USB Device Optical Drive HL-DT-ST DVDRRW GWA-4083B SCSI CdRom Device SMART Hard Disks Status OK Partitions: C: (NTFS) 156319 MB (149820 MB free) Input: Keyboard Standard 101/102-Key or Microsoft Natural PS/2 Keyboard Mouse HID-compliant Wheel Mouse Network: Network Adapter Marvell Yukon 88E8053 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (192.168.0.100)
