  1. Hi Just for the record, here is the first run with the 48.638 meg download. I'm sure some more tweaking might improve things a bit. But still not bad when I'm paying for 7/512 service. Excuse me while I "bask" a bit And by the way, my location is about 15-20 min SE of Phoenix "out in the Valley" where it gets Freakin hot. ARealWarlock :::::::::::::::::..

I know it's not to far from the "advertised" upload. any suggestions??
  4. Greetings from the "Elder" or at least the gray haired one. I've been around pc's since the "trash 80's" were out, and sold several systems at our favorite place. Radio shack. Back in the day of the black and white monitors, and 5 1/4" hard drive err... floppy disk. As the veritable "noob" to tweaking, I had to do something with the speeds I was getting in the metro Phoenix area of AZ and turned to cable nut after trying other things. It's been a while since visiting here, and I recently found out that I'm now getting the "infamous" 8/ 512 package from them. And decided to see what I could do. this is the first repeatable download speed attained, and thought I would share it. ::::::::::.. Download Stats ..:::::::::: Download Connection is:: 7939 Kbps about 7.9 Mbps (tested with 12160 kB) Download Speed is:: 969 kB/s Tested From:: https://testmy.net/ (Server 1) Test Time:: 2006/10/11 - 11:49pm Bottom Line:: 138X faster than 56K 1MB Download in 1.06 sec Tested from a 12160 kB file and took 12.547 seconds to complete Download Diagnosis:: Awesome! 20% + : 58.02 % faster than the average for host (Cox.net) D-Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-J46YWALBC User Agent:: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322) as far as the upload speed, Cox must really have it locked down because no matter what the settings are changed to, it changes very very little. I'm getting about 82% of what I should be and not sure what to do. any suggestions? Oh and whats under the hood. Intel P4 3.2 Prescott with a Zalman CNPS9500 LED. using Arctic Silver so thin you could almost see through it and once it completely cured.... I now run the processor at 3.66 GHz with a core temp of 123 degrees to 135 under load. "On Air" 1 Gig matched corsair ram in black with the activity LED's on them "PC550" just a bit of head room in dual mode. and most recently I got an EVGA GeForce 7800 GS "copper" that is "hyper clocked" the current settings are 485 for the core, and 1.45 GHz on 256meg DDR3 it's the second one from EVGA, but this one rocks. ok, enough of that. "stepping down from podium" I know there are faster systems out there, but this one can hold it's own. Oh and the power supply is 600 watts. if someone comes up with a fix for my upload speed, by all means let me know.
