  1. Same thing here in Philly. I used to always get 0.7mbps(around 85-86kbps) until yesterday when it doubled to 1.5 or better. I'm getting around 189-190kbps now (or around 1.8mbps I believe)
  2. I'm on Comcast cable so I don't require a username/password. The main issue is I'm not receiving packets, I don't know if its a firewall preventing me or what--but I uninstalled ZoneAlarm just in case, but it hasn't helped. Everytime I try and connect to it just times out.
  3. I upgraded my firmware this morning, all was well, then I made the mistake of doing a hard reset on my router. Since I've done that, it hasn't worked. I'm now directly connected to my modem so I can try to find help. The problem is, something is preventing me from receiving packets. I thought it was my firewall, so I uninstalled ZoneAlarm--nothing. I have it set to obtain an IP address automatically. I've tried releasing/renewing my IP. I really don't want to buy another router so hopefully someone can help me. Thanks.
  4. Cool--thanks for the info...any word when it will be released?
  5. Yeah thats what I was thinking too---hopefully Comcast comes out with some plans in the future that cater more towards upload....
  6. Hey guys, I'm on the 6mbps/384kbps plan and I'm thinking about upgrading to the 8/768kbps to hopefully get a better upload. During the day, I'm in the 80-90kbps range, at night time , anywhere from 35-80kbps upload. Is it worth it to make the upgrade? I'm trying to get my upload over 100kbps, but I haven't really seen them type of scores from Comcast.
  7. Just a little update: I want to explain my setup real quick, I have a router with 2 computers on it, and my Playstation 2 hooked up. Like I said earlier, my speeds tend to drop around 4:00 and last until 11:00, then they go back to normal(750kb/s download, 90kb/s upload) Yesterday, I was the only one home and using only my computer--my speeds stayed consistent all night long. Some might say coincidence, but now I'm led to believe that the other computer is the problem. I've run spyware tests and anti-virus scans and cleaned it out, and its fine--so I'm wondering if maybe my router is
  8. I'm having issues keeping my upload speed consistent. In the morning/late at night--I'm steadily between 85-90 kbps. During the afternoon and evening, that number gets sliced in half to 45 or sometimes dips below 40. I ran every a bunch of different spyware and virus removers, got rid of the spyware which helped a little bit, but its still inconsistent. Is there anything I can do or am I just a victim of peak time hours killing my speed? If anyone has any advice to keep my upload consistent at 85-90 I would greatly appreciate it. I'm on a router too, btw.
  9. Hey guys, back again with another problem--hope you kind folks can help me again! During the day(9am-3pm) my ping times are great.... From 3pm-10pm they start to become very slow and inconsistent -- really starting to bug me because I need good ping times for my online gaming on Playstation 2. I am setup through a router(Linksys BEFSR81) and my Comcast modem model # is CXC250. Heres my latest tracert: Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600] © Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp. C:Documents and SettingsOwner.MARIO-E67EOFTXD>tracert www.testmy.net Tracing
  10. Cool, hopefully things stay consistent. Thanks again for all of your help guys. If I run into any problems, I'll be back to break stones
  11. So, the modem is the problem? By the way, I ran ONE MORE test--this time with my router setup (Linksys BEFSR81) at 10:20am EST Again, speeds look good--but on the first hop of the tracert, things are not. :::..

  12. OK, I unplugged modem for 10 min -- I am running a direct line to my modem---its 11:20 EST here so maybe this is why I'm getting good results. The inconsistent results are VERY frustrating---here are my latest: Tracing route to www.testmy.net [] over a maximum of 30 hops: 1 22 ms 49 ms 23 ms 2 25 ms 27 ms 33 ms ge-6-2-ur01.torresdale.pa.panjde.comcast.net [68 .86.219.13] 3 12 ms 14 ms 28 ms po10-ur02.torresdale.pa.panjde.comcast.net [68.8 6.208.77] 4 8 ms 12 ms 12 ms po10-ur01.kensington.pa.panjde.c
  13. Its connected using ethernet. PS--the router is so unstable--says 'Local Area Connection--Network cable is unplugged" every 10 minutes....any tips on how to stop that? Its a D-Link DI-604 I'm on Windows XP Home SP 2 My old router was a Linksys BEFSR81 and it never was unstable like that--it was just really slow. Thanks for the help so far.
  14. I ran another tracert with a direct connection---looks horrible. You think its the actual modem?? I tried typing in into my address bar but got nothing, here are the results: Tracing route to www.testmy.net [] over a maximum of 30 hops: 1 72 ms 133 ms 32 ms 2 102 ms 77 ms 54 ms ge-6-2-ur01.torresdale.pa.panjde.Comcast.net [68 .86.219.13] 3 139 ms 41 ms 147 ms po10-ur02.torresdale.pa.panjde.Comcast.net [68.8 6.208.77] 4 224 ms 41 ms 46 ms po10-ur01.kensington.pa.panjde.Comcast.net [68.8
  15. It came with the latest firmware(3.51) and it was unstable--I tried an older version of the firmware to see if there would be a difference, but there isn't really.
