  2. That's a direct wired test. I also bypassed the router as suggested - back to the original setup using the 327w, and it's about the same. Also tried at different times of the day. All tests are within 1% of each other...
  3. Thanks everyone. I have gone through the thread and most of what's up there I had already done. Spybot, Avast, ccleaner, windows updates, SP2, defrag each month etc etc, I am wondering if it's my router set up?? I had the standard Verizon DSL 1.5mbps package originally, and then was upgraded to the 3.0mbps package using a Westell 327W router/modem combo like everyone else. The 327W did not have enough wireless range, so I put it in bridge mode and use it as a modem only now, and have hooked up a Linksys WRT54GX4 with SRX400 as the wireless router. I know this setup works okay, but am concerned that my speed may be limited to my old 327W Westell acting as the modem. I have cablenut installed and am using the settings for 'fast adsl 2K' is this correct? Thanks,
  4. Here are my download stats.....verizon.net Can anyone help? Van Buren...? :::..

  5. I've tried all the tweaks but am still getting a slow speed. Can anyone suggest a different setting? I have the Verizon 3.0mbps package already....... :::..

  6. I'll agree with the 2.7 comment....I've never got any faster than 2.7 myself, but it seems fast enough for what I need......for now, and I can't get FIOS in my area yet.
  7. So what?? make the call! they probably think they've got away with another one......!
  8. I'm sorry but I'm not an expert in this area, although Verizon have been advertising this upgrade on the TV recently also. I would call the customer service line and see if there's anything you can do, but if you are capped in your area to 1.5mbps I suspect there is nothing you (or they) can do due to geography i.e your distance from the nearest Verizon box. It's certainly worth a phone call though.......maybe you can get a discount instead?
  9. Just got the 3.0 upgrade from Verizon from 1.5 to 3.0. Although still not stunning, it's not bad.. :::.. Download Stats ..::: Connection is:: 2678 Kbps about 2.7 Mbps (tested with 12160 kB) Download Speed is:: 327 kB/s Tested From:: https://testmy.net/ (main) Test Time:: Wed May 4 20:06:00 EDT 2005 Bottom Line:: 48X faster than 56K 1MB download in 3.13 sec Diagnosis: 90% + Okay : running at 100 % of your hosts average (145.78) Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-TBQUNS58X Anyone who is still on the 1.5mbps package and is paying $29.99 for a 1 year commitment should call and get upgraded for no extra charge..

  10. Just curious about the data that is downloaded during the 'test'. What is it, and where is it stored? Is it something that I should be removing after I download? It has not caused a problem, but I was just wondering if anyone knew? Thanks
  11. Thanks everyone, I was able to re-set using 'admin' as the ID and 'password' as the password. All set now - thanks.....
  12. Having no problems up until now, but went to log onto and entered my password, but I can't get on? I know it's right......!!! I have a Westell 327W and unplugged everything and hit the 're-set' button for 30 secs - nothing changed. Re-booted etc, still nothing - Can't get on... The only thing I did was to upgrade my memory to 1GB. Is it possible that something is still stored in the old memory that I need? Everything else seems to work okay. Is there a default login password? I tried 'admin' but still no good. Can anyone help?
  13. Thanks everyone, I called Verizon and am being upgraded to the 3.0mbps plan, so I will post again when it happens.........
  14. Don't know if this is of any interest to all of you..... http://uk.news.yahoo.com/050428/152/fhmaw.html
