  1. Questions for Voltageman and VyraX. The both of you are turning in some amazing speeds. Do you both subscribe to the 15 down, 2 up service or are you buying the 30 down, 5 up package? If your answer is the former, what is and where can I find the Verizon optimizer to which you refer? If your answer is the latter, your speeds makes sense. Otherwise, I am astounded. I thought the throughput was governed by Verizon and it would be impossible to exceed those limits.
  2. I'm afraid I didn't get the results I had hoped for. I used the Dallas server and clocked at around 8.5Mbps. I went to Speedtest.net and got these results: I came back to Testmy.net and tried the dual test again and received slightly better results than my first posted speeds. No complaints, though. Thanks for the CableNut Tweak.
  3. As speedy Gonzales would say "Holy con smoke!!!!". I am going to try your Verizon tweak right now.
  4. Using a DLINK DI-624 Router, DLINK DHP-300 Ethernet over Powerline adapters and a DLINK DSS-5+ Switch and I still get these results. It's better than advertised and upload speeds are typically 1800 Kbps or better. Cowabunga, I'm not worthy.
  5. Thanks for the welcome, "Just a regular - little green alien dude". As many custom settings files that I got from VanBuren, I thought that he must be a part of CableNut. Thanks for telling me about the upload speed test problem. I appreciate the service you provide and this incredible forum. I've never seen anything like it.
  6. Well, that brought back a few memories. I actually lived in Monroeville and drove to the mill in Peterman. That area of Alabama is about as country as country can get. I used to drive to Excel and Frisco city to hang out with the people I met on the job. I remember a town, or what used to be a town, between Monroeville and Excel. It looked like a ghost town. Most all of the buildings were still standing, including the Bank, which still had the name of that Bank painted on the side of the wall. I think it was gutted from a fire. I always wondered what made the people up and leave. I remember a

  8. Hello Bamafamily. Here's the only thing I could find that mentions where FIOS is heading. Hope this helps. I assume you hail from Alabama. If so, do you live anywhere near Peterman? I used to work in a Plywood Mill there. http://newscenter.verizon.com/kit/fiber/?PROACTIVE_ID=cecdc9ccc7cbcbc8cdc5cecfcfcfc5cecec8cecec8caccc9cbc5cf

  11. Hi Hctim, how should I run trace route? I think I know what a trace route is, but I don't know how you would do it. If you don't mind, give me some instructions and I'll gladly give it a try. Clarence
