  1. I think it's a little of both I'll try to break it down to a simple question, don't know how well it will work: Why do the speeds reported for downloading and uploading on the bandwidth test match my actual download and upload speeds, but the connection rate numbers do not? Are my actual download/upload speeds lower than they should be for my connection rate, or is the connection rate reported by the test wrong? If so, why?
  2. Yes, that I understand, but if the download speeds reported match my actual download speeds, then should the reported bandwidth match the actual bandwidth?
  3. If the numbers I"m getting as actual download and upload speeds are correct, though, why does a bandwidth test only read me as 2.9 megabit? If 3360 is supposed to be 330 kB/sec, and that is what I'm getting, shouldn't the bandwidth test match?
  4. The largest file size it shows for me is the 2992.....where do I manually set a file size?
  5. I installed Cablenut and used a custom file I made from the link in one "Performance Tuning" thread, but it made no difference at all. I know my PC is fine; I just re-installed windows for various other reasons too - so there is definitely nothing cluttering up that. Athlon 64 3000+ Venice E6 stepping 2x512 MB DDR400 RAM in Dual-Channel ECS KN1 Extreme v. 1.0 motherboard I'm running to the 327w on the 10/100 ethernet port, it's a Realtek 8139.
  6. Hi, I've been floating around on here for a little bit, but finally decided to register and put my question out for you all - I'm too curious to leave it alone......... I've got Verizon DSL, the 3 Mb plan. My DSL Router (Versalink 327w) reports my line connection as 3360 by 832 kbps down/up. As far as I was concerned, this meant to me that I could download at 336 kB/sec, and upload around 83 kB/sec. When I run speed tests at any site (here, dslreports, bandwidthplace, etc) I always get about the same numbers - 330 kB/sec down, and 80 kB/sec up. :::..
