  1. in response to the spoofing of mac address not if u assign ur own string of mac addys to each client using ur router. even if they guess it they shouldnt be able to knock off another client. they are probably staticly setting an ip addy, also, most router internal web server addys are the same so if you dont have ur router strong password protected they could be gettin in there, also you should be able to see all clients on your router from your web interface.
  2. the best way to find out is ofcourse thru the modems internal web server which is located at the above address, you can also use docsdiag which should be able to tell you your snr, powerlevel, ds frequency, qam, and anything else u could possibly want to know. once u find this info. ill give u an example of what a functional modems info should look like then explain it. downstream Frequency 735000000 Hz Locked Signal to Noise Ratio 36 d QAM 256 Network Access Control Object ON Power Level -5 dBmV upstream HFC MAC Address 00:0x:9x:11:0x:Ax Channel ID 3 Frequency 23984000 Hz Ranged Ranging Service ID 3518 Symbol Rate 2.560 Msym/s Power Level 41 dBmV ur ds frequency should always be locked, ur signal to noise ratio should be between 31-37 for optimal performance, ur ds powerlevel should be between -12 and 12 for optimal performance. the only thing u should be worried about as far as upstream is the powerlevel. it should be between 32-48.
  3. i wouldnt be concerned with privacy from the isp but from my fellow users. all ur traffic comn in can easily be sniffd by someone with the no-how. as well as ur traffic leavin ur pc which is much harder. but possible. as far as ur traffic, the isp can rebuild ur traffic, and be able to tell where youve been what ur usernames, passwords all that. anything. ofcourse they wont because this is an invasion of your privacy. and if that guy above is checking to see where people are going u are in violation of federal laws. only the federal government is allowed to monitor site traffic to kiddie porn, anti government, firearms/weapons. it is not ur right at all. doesnt matter if it takes place on ur net or not. its exactly like the lessor leasee claus. its ur property but while u lease it to someone else your not allowed in it with out their permission. all the fine print in the world on a contract doesnt supercede someones rights. and i dont at all promote or practice any of the above activities, but i must make a comment for democracies sake. the mpa and the riaa are all idiots. for every one site they take down 50 more spring up. its as futile as the war on drugs. the fact that someone else can tell you what to do with something you own is beyond me, if i want to make fifty copies of something i own i will and they can suk my @$$. as long as im not using it for my own personal gain im not infringing any copyright. i think its funny when u put a cd in and it sends u to website where u can listen to the songs from there after u register. what morons dont they know that almost every pc within the last 2 years has a soundcard capable of recording streaming audio at crystal clear rates. u cant control information. on that note im out.
  4. how correct you are. fiber has to be ran underground in order to survive the elements. at least that is what they are teachin me. and ofcourse if the isps do decide to upgrade to docsis 3.0 theyll have to upgrade all their equipment. which is aways away. there isnt many 2.0 networks. most are 1.0/1.1 hybrids. so 3.0 is pushing it. its aways off. but, if fios continues to tear thru the us it will most certainly caus many isps to have to upgrade to compete. this is good. it is also the american way. competition promotes growth. it is the sole beneficiary of technology in the first place. without any competition there would be no need to advance. actually as far as the hubs, a network operates on the principle that not everyone is going to be online at once and also that not every customer will be using a high amount of bandwidth. as soon as i finish school im looking into wirless isp. i believe it is the future of everything. id like to start a small company and provide internet in areas where it was not possible before. this is very possible, but expensive. i already have a mini isp for a project. usin multiple n routers as access points with a homemade antenna i solderd onto the boards. i can detect and successfully connect to my network 2 miles away. its pretty cool actually.
  5. yes it has oc-12 capabilites which is theoretically 600mbps. but just about all cable comps use fiber backbones. whats interesting is that fiber doesnt transfer photons faster than copper transfers electrons... they both transmit at roughly the speed of light. difference is fiber is impervious to electromagnetic interference and other transport interferences. not comparin fiber, comparing dsl and cable. fios is the fastest dsl available. and optimum online is the fastest cable net. fios ofcourse blows optimum away. i was speakin of the future of broadband. just what eventually its leading to. and yes it is very possible in the real world for 160/120. im on a docsis 1.0 net and i receive all of my maximum potential which 38/30. and my buddy on optimum gets 30/30 on his 2.0 net. so what exactly makes u think that its not possible in the real world. there are aproximately 46,478 cable internet subscribers on my net segment. and at any given time from a dedicated server a max my potential. this is merely discussion and not tryin to irratate anyone. id really like to get some intelligent insight and opinions.
  6. are you on charter or ool? i meant charter. but hey nice speed tho. wish ool was available here...lol.
  7. fios is gonna jump start cable networks where they are supposed to be but will fizzle. they cant compete with docsis 3.0, that is when its ready. 160/120 possibility. cable isps are just not spending money because, well, they dont have to upgrade their equipment. it is definitely a monopoly, a greed issue. why give someone a 60mbps connection for 100 dollars when i can give em 30 for 100. no competition. fios brings this competition and ofcourse forces the cable isps to protect their customer base. pretty soon everything will be streaming and on demand. and their current tiers are insufficient to support this, in the internet race america is definitely last. charging businesses 3000 dollars a month for full backbones. how does a small business survive in this enviorment. they dont, they settle for crappy tiers which cant possibly meet the demands of their clients. that being said, excuse the rant.
  8. what happens on a cable net, is that if you have too many devices, such as multiple tvs, voip, drawing from the signal there isnt enough to manage p2p services. because p2p use ur bandwidth for more than just file transfers.
  9. whats ur signal look like. usually when it cant get the symbol timing your signal is really low, like snr is below 29,and Dbmv is below -12. charter could of pulled a comcast, and oversubscribed and is now incapable of handling the tiers their offering. charters great for me, but ive heard other people have issues with the 10/1 eating their bandwith. i would stick with cable if at all possible, it is the future. dsl is well nothing unless its fios. cable can provide almost the same amount of bandwidth on a docsis 2.0 network without a complete fibre system.
  10. this is during peak hours. my lines generally are the most saturated between 9p.m.-1a.m. :::.. testmy.net test results ..::: Download Connection is:: 17467 Kbps about 17.47 Mbps (tested with 12160 kB) Download Speed is:: 2132 kB/s Upload Connection is:: 1761 Kbps about 1.8 Mbps (tested with 2992 kB) Upload Speed is:: 215 kB/s Tested From:: https://testmy.net (Server 1) Test Time:: 2006/10/13 - 9:11pm D-Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-JV4RGP8DN U-Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-F31NMRUDB User Agent:: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322) [!]
  11. Cox has 17/2 packages and i think a 30/2. ofcourse you couldnt afford em cuz they charge outrageous for rm. unless u hackd ur modem your stuck with the basic speeds. they are supposed to be business class pckgs..
  12. thank you for the welcome. my isp is charter. and my speed is unlimited. well at least limited to hardware and overhead. i was using dap. my ping to that link was kinda high. so the only way to get any good speed was to use multi-thread. while ive got the attention of an admin, everytime i try to use my speed test image on another forum i only get a link. ive tried all three types of code? they only support BBcode. is there away around this? thanx.
