  1. had Comcast Xfinity support here. I think I ended up with the right guy.  First he checked for "leaks" at each TV - then we tested off the pole and said I needed a new line and changed the junction at House.  The line was full of water from squirrel chewing.    Still had a problem.  So he ran a line to my modem from the pole direct. we had the modem outside the house.  He said the problem is before it gets to my house so that means a different crew to do line work plus the auto call from Xfinity came to me to update that the outside line repair was in process and that I didn't need to be here. 

    So I have service but hopefully it will be better soon.

  2. I have been trying to get better comcast service( I buy 105 ) as it seems to have degraded even though I have a new computer with Win 10 Pro.  speed test i get 80 xfinity i get 120

    test my net I Get 20 mps. ugh............

    I just had the xfinity service call me from India to do follow up for a modem reset. I have an appt scheduled for sat. Just did another reset.  But I can see slow pages - slow outlook emails and pics.  I know its slow. I have an xfinity rented modem. I 'm on the Comcast provided modem/wireless router. ARRIS TG 862.  I own a motorola buts its docs 2.0 and the Xfinity is 3.0 (but it also has that free wireless for everyone feature.)

    I understand they may have a newer modem ?  would like to try that and I will bring that up with service guy

  3. Wireless -

    I'm on the Comcast provided modem/wireless router. ARRIS TG 862    -    I used to have a linksys WG54 and a cisco e2500.


    The older desktop I have decided to dump as I need upgrades for CadCam work and that needs better graphics card   more mem and windows Pro OS.

    But to answer your possibilities. cabling is the same 1 vs 2, So I think the computer age (OS, and hardware) is probably what makes 1 slower than 2.  But I was just curious as to what others thought. Thanks

    Im glad I found this site as an honest forum and a REAL test of speed even though I had used speed test for years

  4. I have a new-er Dell Dell Inspiron 15 with windows 8.1 
    download test when wired = 70 mbps ( wireless = 33 )

    My desktop is Dell  Inspiron with Windows 7 - about 5 years old
    download test off same cable router wired = 44 mbps

    I am looking at new desktops but why the difference in wired speed

    also is wireless always slower?  ( I am within 5 ft from router )
