  1. Unless the problem is obvious I doubt the tech will do much. The first thing he will probably do is test the line. Then he may install an amplifier and/or give you a dedicated line and hopefully one of those will fix your problem.
  2. Uhh, wingzero that link is not about a true suicide. It is a joke. Satire to be exact (I think).
  3. Glad to hear you rent and burn games. Games are not expensive enough now, lets all pirate more to drive up the price for everyone else.
  4. I have a router. I cannot find any way to change or even check the settings but I did a test on dslreports.com and if I read it right my MTU is indeed at 1500. However, even when I plug the modem directly into the PC or Xbox my poor performance continues.
  5. After much frustration with Verizon never being able to fix my provisioning I switched to Comcast about 3 or 4 months ago, thinking that with their better speeds I would have a better online experience gaming and surfing the web. The web is fine (almost). Speeds are good. The only problem I have is frequent "Page not found" errors. This only seems to happen with certain web sites (mainly Yahoo, which I primarily use for searching, mail, and news). Usually if I just refresh it comes up right away. The second and more annoying problem is terrible performance when gaming. My 4.0/384
  6. Interesting... The link said it is available in my area when I put in my address but when I put in my phone number on the page with the price list it said it was not available :/
  7. I tried that one and never got it to work. Any other suggestions?
  8. I have been having problems with my connection when gaming, even though every time I test my speed here things look great. I did a search on bandwidth monitors but I did not find exactly what I was looking for. I am hoping to find a program that will monitor and log my connections speed (up and down) over a period of time, so I can see if spikes of poor service occur. Is there anything out there that fits my needs?
  9. We all understand that everyone is at the mercy of the host with Halo 2. What I don't understand is why my connection is worse than others when my connection speed is as good or better than theirs. The only thing that I have not replaced is the patch cable from the modem to the Xbox, so I think I may as well give that a shot.
  10. I did a google search for the IP address of the Xbox Live servers and had no luck. I am not 100% sure of the Xbox Live architecture, but I do know that Halo 2 games are played in something of a peer-to-peer format. One person's Xbox is the host; there is no actual gaming server for this particular game. I am sure there are servers invloved - The Halo manufacturers servers keep track of stats and do the in game matchmaking (where you get paired up with other online players of similar skill levels) and I am sure the Xbox Live servers are also involved in some manner.

  12. I don't even have my PC hooked up to the Internet when I play. I am plugging the cable modem directly into my Xbox, bypassing my router and PC.
  13. I have Comcast Cable 4.0/384 and when I test my speeds here I consistently get about what I should. For reference, here are the latest tests: :::.. Download Stats ..::: Connection is:: 4032 Kbps about 4 Mbps (tested with 2992 kB) Download Speed is:: 492 kB/s Tested From:: https://testmy.net/ (main) Test Time:: Thu May 5 12:28:31 EDT 2005 Bottom Line:: 72X faster than 56K 1MB download in 2.08 sec Diagnosis: Looks Great : 13 % faster than the average for host (comcast.net) Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-JBM3VR6OU :::..

  14. Even so, when I had Verizon I always was much, much closer to the advertised speed. I would think he would be closer to 2.8 at least. Especially since he is almost spot on with the advertised upload speed. But you are the expert
  15. Those upload stats look great too, especially if you are a gamer. I loved the consistency with Verizon when I had them. But they seem to have very poor customer service when there are problems. Still, if they could have fixed what they had me partitioned at I would still be with them rather than cable, despite cable's faster DL speeds.
