  1. I have had CoX out to my place a couple of times and they can't figure out why my computer is only getting about 1MB download when I am paying for the 5MB download. My upload is fine at 768KB. Is there any setting in the registry that can be changed to increase the transfer speed in downloads or increase the speed in the internet overall. I havent done any changes whatsoever to my computer. The setting are default of Windows XP Pro SP2. My computer is p4 3.0 With HT 1.5GB PC3200 RAM 160GB WD 8MB FX5900 128MB 100 Base T Cox has come out twice and they give me the same answer every time.. "The line is fine and they are no problems on their End."

  4. Can someone mail me some snow? I'll admire it with my flip flops and shorts...
  5. The weather is getting cool.....75F........ snow birds are coming back....Turkey.....Christmas.....and faster Internet than last year 5MB vs 3MBlastyear. So to all those Pimps, Cool guys, and a particular Cable Guy .. Let's enjoy the winter and internet with all the happiness you can muster. P.S. Snow Birds suck at driving
  6. For all the others that don't want to change the Helix thingy's in their Registry, I have the simple file available to disable the 2 download limit. Just click on the EMAIL button for my profile. MICROWAVE has already the files via email. If you are a HELIX kinda of guy, then disregard this Post.
  7. And I DOnt use any download accelerator of any kind.
  8. I have enabled the EMAIL button on my profile. If you want the File to disable the 2 download limit, I will email it to you. The file works with WIN XP home and PRO versions. It is a REGISTRY entry that disables the 2 download limit. It is stable and runs great on my computer. I have WIN XP PRO SP 2. P4 3.0 Ghz HT 1.5GB RAM 160GB HD 6800 Ultra
  9. I am loving this COX HSI 5MB download speed. I was able to find a file to disable the 2 download limit per site, and now I am flying. I was wondering if it was worth getting LINUX to use.
  10. just wanted to drop a line once more and see what is crackalackin in the neighborhood. Perhaps I can assist in anyone in need.
  11. I am wondering if Cox has changed the internet CAPS. I am now getting almost 500Kbs for Upload and 4.5 - 5.0 Mb Download. Maybe Cable Would Know..............

  14. AOL usually piggybacks on to High Speed Internet. Its not its own isp with the connection, unless you're talking about Dialup.
  15. The first thing my man is move to Phoenix and enjoy the faster way of life down here with Cox Cable Internet,,, Actually your speed is not that bad at all
  16. Anything for you my fellow brother, Hey i see you are online right now
  17. Go with Nvidia....and your worries will go away
  18. lol,, that commercial is damn funny... i wish i had someone like that at work.
  19. I extend my evil hand to the newbies with offers of help.
  20. I can do many things with that upload speed. My upload at work is just over 1.1Mb.
  21. Actually the speed you are getting is very fast. Satellite is usually under 700K download, like DSL speed. You have nothing to worry about. You are actually in the same speed league as most Cable Internet Users. You aren't up to speed with the big boys just yet, but you're making progress. ::: Download Stats ::: Connection is: 4405 Kbps about 4.4 Mbps (tested with 1496 KB) Download Speed is: 538 KB/sec Auth Code: 2066076 (validate at http://www.testmy.net) Bottom Line: 79 times faster than 56K you can download 1MB in 1.9 second(s) Validation Link :: https://testmy.net/cgi-bin/auth_check.cgi?ta=&top=&align=&num=2066076&Kbps=4405&gen=gen&a=10.8571428571429&b=1.14285714285714&c=1145.14285714286
