  1. If my download speeds are fine, what might cause slowed web page loads across the whole network?
  2. Pretty sure it's not just my computer because I've tested on many devices. But I have not yet tested at the box. If the rain will ever stop, I'll give that a shot. It has crossed my mind though. The wiring in this house seems to be pretty poor.
  3. Yet another post. So you can sort of see what I see. http://www.youtube.c...bed/CZGUTzuEtz4
  4. Been tinkering. Speeds are decent at around 650 KB/s. But I still have the initial hang. Modem Reports 800 KB/s+ connection. But even connected directly, I'm not actually seeing that speed. Pulled it out of bridge mode for a sec to look at some stats. Pingtest.net shows good latency is fine, around 30 ms, no packet loss, jitter at 1 ms. Used to always be 0 jitter. Not sure what's changed in the past months. But I'm not sure if 1 ms is cause for alarm. Played with various MTU settings from 1400-1500. Only ever got a 0.2 mbps difference. Left it at 1492. Hoping my airport extreme base station
  5. Nevermind the last post. Apparently the double speed is something I'm not familiar with that happens when the computer handles the pppoe connection.
  6. More testing. Weird results. So, I hooked up directly from my Macbook into my modem again. Double checked MTU was still set to 1492 for ethernet. But kept my modem in bridge mode and logged in pppoe from my macbook. The following info is from the exact same test. Have tested multiple times with the same results. So testmy.net says I'm getting 625 KB/s while my down stream throughput shows 1250 KB/s. It's exactly half. Why?
  7. Ooh. Response from the big man himself. Maybe there's hope of actually getting this resolved. Feels a little bit like talking to...maybe not quite god... let's go with gandalf. And I never really left testmy.net. Been visiting at least weekly to test ever since I signed up. Just neglected to sign in. >.< Anywho, thank you for all the suggestions and reading material. Unfortunately, there wasn't much of that I wasn't already familiar with or hadn't previously poured through. So let me shine a little more light on the issue. First off, I'm a mac user. (*le gasp!*) While a windows ma
  8. Each time I do a download speed test here, the progress bar goes through like 3%, hangs, goes a little more, hangs again, and then continues on to 100% at full speed.
  9. If you want to put a little bit more of an " AOL spin " on your browsing, you can try this. http://downloads.channel.aol.com/browser/?
  10. If you have a DW6000, you have nothing to worry about. If you have an older modem and you don't have that program file, then you probably wouldn't be able to get here. So, if you are using DirecWay to access this site right now, you have no problems. Don't worry. That tweak isn't for you though.
  11. This isn't bad for a dw6000. But still slow compared to most of the speeds I've seen here. :::..

  12. You could build a huge tower and provide wireless internet from that. But i'm sure that would get pretty costly.
  13. I think torrents usually depend on the upload speed of another person's computer. Someone that has that file you are downloading. So whatever their upload speed is is what your download speed will be for downloading that file. Do not use the LCCU. It will only make things slower.
  14. The problem seems like it was on flash.net's end. They changed something in their servers and the data you had in outlook was just outdated and needed to be updated to fit the new changes. POP3 and SMTP work fine with direcway. You can use many different ISPs with direcway such as Earthlink and AOL. The only way to keep your email address when switching ISPs is to get your email from some place that isn't connected to any other ISP. One example would be gmail from google.com.
