  1. I had the 3360/768 connection and was just downgraded to 3200/608. Why do they do this, is it because available bandwidth that verizon has or something, is this how the regulate their system. And does this happen often.
  2. Verizon DSL :::.. Download Stats ..::: Connection is:: 2910 Kbps about 2.9 Mbps (tested with 2992 kB) Download Speed is:: 355 kB/s Tested From:: https://testmy.net/ (server2) Test Time:: Tue Jul 26 2005 11:37:17 GMT-0400 (Eastern Standard Time) Bottom Line:: 52X faster than 56K 1MB download in 2.88 sec Diagnosis: May need help : running at only 83.67 % of your hosts average (verizon.net) Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-TCAMNRB56 :::..

  3. are u talking about the ethernet cord cus i mean the pone line. He said the dsl will start to dissapear on a phone cord after 14ft, not the ethernet cord. Is that still wierd. As of now i still haven't had any interuptions.
  4. I called and we found out that the cord from my gateway to my comp. was too long which was 14 feet. I had it long so my ethernet cord to my xbox wasn't too long but i shortened the cord to my gateway and lengthened the one to xbox live, haven't had a single problem since. I hope that doesnt cause more latency on xbox live.
  5. Well I have verizon dsl 3MB. I have never had cable so I can only tell you what dsl is like and maybe somebody else can testify for cable. Most dsl packages are $30 a month and at 1.5MB, I was lucky and qualified for 3MB. Overall i like dsl even though every now and then I run into a problem and have to call verizon which provides good customer service even though you may have to wait. Most cable is at least 4MB sometimes 5 or 6MB and is $40 or $50 a month. In my opinion, u should only get dsl if u can get 3MB because it would then be worth the price. If u can only get dsl wit 1.5MB, u should definitely get cable which can give u at least 2.5MB more for only and extra $10 a month. I think dsl is best because of the price only if u get 3MB. If u do a lot of downloading or play on xbox live or something and want exceptonal performance, u may want something. Since cable is $40 $50 a month, and u can get 15MB with verizon fios for $50 a month, I would get fios before I got cable anyway, but i dont qualify.
  6. I used the calculator and put in my capped speeds which was 1.7MB and guessed 250ms for latency and i got 1.6MB on the speed test every time. This was back when i was still on 1.5MB
  7. a gateway is just a combination of a router and modem
  8. it says lease obtained the 6th and expires the 7th
  9. Go to ur connections and go to ur connection u use and go to support and enter the default gateway number into ur browser as if it was a website. This is what it looks like for me, but i'm not sure if it will work for u.
  10. What did u do, cus i still have mine's set up the wierd way.
  11. I did the same EXACT thing, now my comp wont detect my connection unless i set up a PPOPE connection on my router's software.
  12. how do i see what my ip time is and no i dont think my ip is changing.
  13. hey mat, do u mean that ur comp. wont detect the connection as normally and u have to set it up throught ur modem?
  14. Just so everyone knows, every file on bearshare or limewire that has a file size of 872,159 is a virus/spyware. I usually find the when searching in apps.
  15. thank u so much, for the info, and quick reply
  16. Is there a way to make firefox NEVER open a new window and ALWAYS open a new tab instead. I messed with the settings, but i will still have to either click and drag, or middle-click which i'm not used to.
  17. At first i was gonna use ie 7 because of tab browsing, but i did some research and found out firefox has it, so i'm probably gonna stick with firefox. I'll keep ie 7 on my comp but i'll have to use both for a week until i see which one i wan't to use all the time. But one thing i can say is that IE7 is definitely faster than firefox. I dont know why. Although its only a little, using firefox, i consistently get about 2880Kbps, and with IE7, i consistently get about 2905Kbps. For me personaly, IE7 DEFINITELY outdoes Firefox with its looks and speed. The only theme i like from firefox is the default and qute, but ie7 looks better than qute anyway. This is gonna be a hard choice, where does IE7 outdo firefox for me?
  18. I have had the Westell Versalink gateway that came with my verizon dsl package since November (which is when i got high speed internet so i can play HALO2). Now there seems to be a problem with it. Every half and hour about, it will either completely shut off and come back on, or shut off very quick so u will hardly notice. I know it is the gateway causing the problem because this interupts my computer's connection and my xbox live connection. I think the problem may be because i was having some problems with my connection, which was here in network connections under LAC (top pic), so i called verizon, and they had me setup a connection on my gateway's software which I usually dont have to do (bottom pic). Somebody told me that my gateway might be overheating and to put a fan on it, i tried that and it doesn't work. What should i do?
  19. Here is mines even tho i have no idea what this stuff means. How do ya'll like this royale theme i downloaded, it makes the interface more shiny.
  20. When doing this can someone plaes clarify the process because i dont even understand exactly what a hop is, and when to start the download.
  21. i was wondering, how do u cut out pictures like that of what is on ur screen?
  22. Yeah i tried mcaffee one time, it came with a free trial, and it froze my co,mp up, and slowed it down so much to the point where i couldnt use it so i had to uninstal it.
  23. I see what yall think are the best free ones, but what are the best ones to pay for, i wouldn't feel safe unless i am gonna pay somebody something.
  24. Can you change your MTU, and will this make your connection faster?
  25. Since the router says that people whohave upgraded verizon DSL says to have a 3360Kbps, has anybody been able to get their connection above 3.0MB. I can only get mines to 2.9MB.
