  1. Ok i have more dumb questions if anyone can answer ill be :D

    I have a BB connection and i also have a 56k connection that i got free with my BB. 

    1) Can i run both my connections on my computer at the same time?

    1b) Will it make it faster?

    2) Is it safe to connect my BB modem into my playstation2 and have my 56k modem (connected somewhere to my BB modem i think) running on my computer?  I know this one works but im not sure about it.

    3) Anyone else run their PS2 online and do you portforward or have any speed tricks?


  2. Hey This site owns! :D  I runs tests here most days now :)  But i have some questions, after reading some posts.

    I have been getting good speed here but they seem alot higher than im ment to be able to get :D  I heard Van Buren say that if the setting are wrong you can get false results or surges.  I cant even remember what setting i used, but i tried afew untill i understood it, and now i have better results.

    Iv been testing against the speed test server that my isp gave me and i always get better results here :) I was going to try Van Burens new settings but i dont want to stuff my sys and have to fix it AGAIN after iv only really started to get it good... anyway i get bad ping playing online : ok here is the latest test

    Im on 256 bitstream:

    The real question is should i risk losing my current speed by changing my cablenut settings?  Are my CN stettings wrong and thats why im getting high


    Here are the stats i get from another server:

    Should i just be happy :) with this? :P sry if the questions are dumb, im just trying to find my limit...  Oh yea thanks Van Buren and Ca3le!

  3. Ok i deserve the title N00b ;) 

    I lowered my screen res and color quality (16bit) and it seems to work?!? On saved media anyway.  Not ideal but oh well :)

    Thanks :D

    If only i wasn't such a noob ;) i might be able to help sum of the good people here  :)  Tnx again

  4. Thanks for the feed back :)

    This is still driving me :crazy: !  I cant even watch saved video from my computer in full screen.  Its grainy and flickers and seems to have lost quality :(  But when i do a sys restore; it works fine and the streaming media is clear also.  As soon as i install the updates it turns to crap again.

    Sry this is such a stupid issue;  but is there anyone who knows why it might do this? 

    The faq dosn't deal with issues like "it use to work fine and now its grainy".

    The funny thing is i can watch my saved vid's with VLC or other players and they are perfect quality...  I keep trying the faq; it must be in there somewhere :(

  5. Hey thanks!  I'll try the Faq.

    The wmp (plug in) patch is NOT the problem; its not installed right now and im having the same problem!?!  However i cant give the list of the other 4 updates yet, untill i sys restore AGAIN!

    Biker have you tried to watch (http i think) streaming media on "full screen"?

    I'll try to get the list of the other updates later.

  6. Hey iv been lurking on and off here and i have been trying alot of tweaks and even managed to get my D/l speed faster; but recently iv had to perform alot of sys restores and i think its due to the new XP updates.

    When i run the updates, they install but when i goto watch streaming video; its all layered and jumpy.  So i have performed sys restore to clear them and re-installed WITHOUT the windows media plug in update. (which i thought was the problem) but it still has conflict...

    There are 5 updates on my list; has anyone else had this problem with the updates?  Should i just install them one at a time untill i find the one conflicting with my WMP?  And even if i find it; is it smart to avoid installing that patch? 

    Its defintally the updates, cause when i sys restore; wmp streams clear and as soon as the updates are installed it wont :(  Is there another way?

    Sry if these are stupid questions! 

  7. Thanks sooooo much guys, you rawk!!!  :haha::twisted:

    I just spent the last 1/2 hour on the phone to my ISP.  It appears that its not my system/modem at all!!! But rather a international problem with all NZ isp's.  :lol:

    Thay are saying there is some international problem so that explains why i can get local stuff at high speed but not good download speed HERE!!

    I feel abit  :oops: about that tho ;):)

    Hopefully my speed will come back then i can get to tweaking it :)

    Thanks again!

  8. Thanks,

    Yea i was reading that again... i just realised that i posted this in the wrong place :oops:

    No i havnt tried that yet tho, i was hoping fix this problem first, that way i would know that it wasnt something else that cause the problem.  Hmm ill give it a try...

    Just had another sys restore :( thats obviously not going to work

    Been reinstalling drivers and software also

    I cant think of much else except hitting it with a hammer ;) that il fix it ;)

  9. Hi, first i want to thank Van Buren and others for the good info on this site, it helped me alot.  :)

    But i have a problem, i have tested here before and read all the help stickys...

    Umm i had good test results (for my connection) 256k it was hitting 32 easy; nothing worth compairing to some of the other speeds here  :oops: but yesterday my connection backed off so i have been testing again and got :

    :::.. Download Stats ..:::

    Connection is:: 83 Kbps about 0.1 Mbps (tested with 97 kB)

    Download Speed is:: 10 kB/s

    Tested From:: https://testmy.net/ (server2)

    Test Time:: Mon Oct 10 10:02:01 UTC+1300 2005

    Bottom Line:: 1X faster than 56K 1MB download in 102.4 sec

    Diagnosis: May need help : running at only 10.05 % of your hosts average

    OMFG! everytime i see that i nearly switch!  So i have been testing it but it wont come back, i changed alot of my settings for ip etc but no change, i when through most of the help stickys with windows in safe mode scans etc still nothing.  I talked to my ISP and they told me there is no problem with connections ATM :(

    I even ran sys restore!

    I know you HATE this but i am running my connection through usb because i dont have the right port...even using that method i was still getting results i was happy with.  I dont know what to do, i use online eye to measure speed also... and when streaming music its still hitting near 20KB/s so i do still have some speed there at some times. 

    Anyway is there any way i can just get it back to how it was???  I was ashamed to try and compaire my speed to the ones iv seen here but now id be happy to just get my average speed back :(
