  1. Hi Lamont!! Haven't heard from you in quite awhile
  2. Just checking to see if anyone else here is using Embarq as ISP?? Wayne
  3. From what I can find out Comcast is running a proprietary software (Power Boost) that will increase download bandwidth temporarily.How long this will stay?? Likely not long. Looks like the exaggerated speeds are semi legit for now... Gonna be fun while it lasts
  4. Its kinda up and down here..right now its in the 50 ish range...below the cap but still good.Earlier it was blazing fast... Comcast "may" be using some sort of traffic shaping in the path that is giving me these deviating readings. I did have a couple of UDP ports open (Echolink) but have since been terminated but that was about all of consequence that is/was connected except the browser and E Mail most of the other is filtered out in the router and firewall.. I will check it again later on tonight after the peak has peaked and see how it looks then! WT
  5. If I can get this reliably Who Am I to Complain
  6. Mine show only Firefox and Thunderbird running under task mgr.. but there are 64 other processes running otherwise with 0%CPU load
  7. Thanks, That is much the scheduled PM here for all 6 PC's connected which I can guarantee works.(just got through working with 4 at work virus infested ) I have since learned of a few new additions to the node I am on...possibility of a bandwidth hog somewhere close Until recently I returned speeds at or near the caps..whatever went south went that way quick! Thanks again! WT
  8. ::.. eDownload Stats ..::: Download Connection is:: 17562 Kbps about 17.6 Mbps (tested with 12160 kB) Download Speed is:: 2144 kB/s Tested From:: https://testmy.net/ (Server 1) Test Time:: 2007/01/26 - 8:14pm Bottom Line:: 306X faster than 56K 1MB Download in 0.48 sec Tested from a 12160 kB file and took 5.672 seconds to complete Download Diagnosis:: Awesome! 20% + : 215.47 % faster than the average for host (comcast.net) D-Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-RSYUAH6XL User Agent:: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; n-US; rv: Gecko/20061206 Firefox/ [!] Mostly at night but has been during the day..The one above is the latest one.. Next test (after cache clear) may be anywhere from 3-5K Must be on my end.. Thanks! WT
  9. Anybody seeing problems with the speed test? I can test at one time and get an insane speed of better than 10K down and the next will be 31 ish. Modem config files remained the same. Strange thing is it does seem to get a 10K plus download speed with uploads in the 300 range at Speakeasy. No real problem as it still seems to work ok with the 1100 download speeds reported..just curious. WT
  10. They must really be running behind schedule.. I had been getting the better speeds for a few weeks when I got mine.
  11. Nope..problem was there well before I cooled it down. Being that its a leased unit I didnt open it up to verify exactly what was heating and causing a problem with freeze mist or such.
  12. I live in Southwestern Virginia ( near Bristol Va/Tn)
  13. I haven't pressured them much about the replacement...yet. Since they are closed by the time I get off work and can get there I have let it ride so to speak. I'll have to send wifey at that "special" time of the month..she'll likely get an extra or two When I notice a slowdown I find the diagnostics page cant be loaded(server error) then if I reset it that returns and so does the speeds. Strange little box
  14. Update: This modem (original with all its problems) has been running semi-flawless for over a month now The folks at Comcast say there is absolutely nothing wrong with this modem and they will not replace it until they detect a failure.
  15. Yeah..That is the key to any Anti Virus Spyware Program updating often!! I'm running XP Pro on all 5 of my machines I have online either LAN or WAN. All but two have AVG with no problems there either.The other 2 have the Comcast Branded McAfee Virus Scan program
  16. I have not had any troubles yet..with the exception of showing my speeds a lot slower here than they test at other servers.. I 'll likely stick with this providing it does not present any problems till the expirartion then I'll find something else.The only product that I'm using is the virus scan. I didnt need the firewall or any of the others so far hardware firewall has handled that ok So far so good
  17. Nice speeds!!! If I disable Mcafee sometimes I can get almost 6 meg down on
