  1. So you're saying, to "change the WAN IP", one will basically have to "change the MAC address", then apply, and release + renew the IP on the router? For Comcast, I personally follow this proceedure to change the WAN IP (yes, global IP): 1. Unplug cable modem from a/c adapter (Motorola SB 5120) 2. Change MAC address on the router 3. Apply and wait for router to reboot 4. Plug the modem's a/c adapter back. 5. Wait for modem to boot up. 6. Enjoy new IP. Would it be like this on FiOS too? Btw, good to know that Port Forwarding works well on that router though
  2. Btw, a few more questions: Does the proprietary router have port forwarding options? (if so, is it effective/good)? Does Verizon assign IP addresses for FiOS based upon the router's MAC address like Comcast does? Does the router allow you to "change the MAC address"? (MAC cloning)
  3. Oh hmm. At least for now, I've only considered getting FiOS internet. I'm currently still on Comcrap's 6 Mbps/384 Kbps tier. (Yeah, getting 6 Mbps/1 Mbps though, after PowerBOOST wears off)
  4. I know it's fast and cheaper than what Comcrap is offering, and they are installing the fiber optic wires as we speak to my building. I've thought about switching already, but I have a few things to ask you guys: 1. Do I HAVE to use THEIR router, or can I use the one I already have? (In their "policy" section on their site, they said : " * Can I use my High Speed Internet Modem, Router, or Cable Modem with my Verizon FiOS Internet Service? No. At this time you need to use the broadband routers provided by Verizon that have been approved to work specifically with Verizon FiOS Internet Service. These routers contain special diagnostic software that can help us troubleshoot and correct problems should you experience trouble with your Internet connection.") 2. If the answer to #1 is an absolute YES, then what kind of router (don't be generic, obviously a wireless one) would they provide? 3. Would they provide a router and a modem for FiOS, or a modem/router hybrid (gateway)?
  5. You're looking at PowerBOOST at its lowest. It shoots up to 20 Mbps for me. But since it's PowerBOOST, try downloading XP SP2; it will start out ~ 2 - 3 MB/sec, and as it gets closer to 17 MB of the file done, speed drops down to ~760 KB/sec (~6000 Kbps[6 Mbps]).
  6. Just got another spike after surfing butter smooth.

  7. I've uploaded a video to partially demonstrate what I'm currently experiencing (better than taking stills): http://rapidshare.com/files/68622788/comcrap-crap.wmv.html It's basically random "spikes" of slow-sh*t. As I said before, I power-cycled the modem and stuff. Please, someone with knowledge analyze the signal levels.
  8. Hit the home button to go to google: After a few seconds, it loads instantly: More examples with TMN: Again, I know for a fact that it has NOTHING to do with my PC. And all of my PCs are RWIN tweaked professionally. The only thing I'm not familiar with is the levels of power and signals on the cable modem: Downstream Value Frequency 549000000 Hz Signal to Noise Ratio 35 dB QAM QAM256 Network Access Control Object ON Power Level -9 dBmV The Downstream Power Level reading is a snapshot taken at the time this page was requested. Please Reload/Refresh this Page for a new reading Upstream Value Channel ID 9 Frequency 22000000 Hz Ranging Service ID 4334 Symbol Rate 2.560 Msym/s Power Level 35 dBmV Modem: Moterola SB5120 Cap: d11_m_sb5120_silverpboosttb25_c01.cm
  9. In fact, a great example of this gay sh*t just emerged while posting this topic: I'm getting REALLY tired of this, it started around 3 PM EST, and up and through until now (5:42 PM EST).
  10. Up until yesterday, internet was working fine. Then today, I launched Firefox, and sites were loading alright, but then, I get some stuck at "Connecting to www.site.com..." (replace site.com with the site, obviously) for about 5 - 15 seconds, then the site loads. Then, it started not loading at all, and I ran a speed test, results came in at about 1.4 Mbps DL, 100 Kbps UL (according to SpeakEasy's speed tester). I did a few power cycles on the modem, and it didn't help. I did a few router resets, and it didn't help. I even tried connecting the PC to the modem directly, and it didn't help (still slow). Right now, it STILL occasionally gets stuck at "Connecting to www.site.com" for a few seconds, and site loads fast (or slow), it feels like crap. I try going on battle.net, and it loads fine, then it gets stuck with high latency. My PC is clean, all of my PCs are clean, I regularly update windows, scan for viruses and spyware (Ad-Aware + Symantec Anti-virus [sAV Corporate]), and I use Wireshark to look for anything using bandwidth on my end (on all of my PCs) and nothing. What can I do?
  11. Looks like 6 Mbps/1 Mbps on this cap. Uploaded a 50 MB file w/o going below 117 KB/sec. Everything above 117 KB/sec is PowerBOOST crap.
  12. I've attached the cap file. Anyone know the real speeds and stuff?
  13. Hmm, just uploaded a 19 MB file (Ad-aware 2007) to my site, at a steady 190 KB/sec!
  14. d11_m_sb5120_silverpboosttb25_c01.cm Any idea what speeds this is?
  15. Damn, looks like I lost the Silver Deluxe cap. Now it has: d11_m_sb5120_silverpboost_c01.cm I tried uploading some stuff to my server (a 16 MB file), and it started going at 188 KB/sec for the first 5 or 10 MB of the file, then it dropped straight down to 42 KB/sec (very disappointed).
  16. Sorry sirs, should have tested on a Red Hat torrent instead.
  17. Torrent uploaded 42+ MB and still sustained 80+ KB/sec upload EDIT: Removed Picture showing illegal activity
  18. Proof. If this was powerboost, it would have slowed down to < 47 KB/sec around 5 MB of the file.
  19. Today, I decided to go reboot my modem.... and to my surprise, it got a different "cap" file: d11_m_sb5120_silverdeluxe_c01.cm So I do a speed test.... hmm 22 Mbps (download powerboost), but upload... 722 Kbps (no powerboost? used to get 1400+ Kbps with powerboost). At least comcast is giving us 6 Mbps/768 Kbps for lower tier now...
  20. Guys, reboot your modems. You will get a new config file that will cap you to 6 Mbps/768 Kbps instead of the 384 Kbps. But, you will lose the powerboost upload, but hey, at least now upload is permanent (I tested).
  21. PowerBOOST for upload and download. Do a speed test here: http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/ Here's what I'm getting with the same package: Last Result: Download Speed: 21050 Kbps (2631.3 kB/sec transfer rate) Upload Speed: 1481 Kbps (185.1 kB/sec transfer rate) :::..

  22. Oh darn. I thought Comcast was gonna be competitive to FiOS. I mean, it's quit expensive ($42.95) for 6/384. PowerBOOST is "fake" speed.
