Comcast speeds with an EMTA (Comcast Digital Voice)


Recommended Posts

I am running Win XP SP2, Avast and Windows antivirus, with a Linksys wired router. My speeds are so slow, I may as well go back to dial up.  When I had a Motorola SB 4100 modem, I had great downloads speeds, never below 4-5 Mbps.  I have since added Comcast Digital Voice and now have an EMTA, and the best download speed I have gotten in over a month is 2.7 Mbps.  I've considered going to Comcast's speedtier due to the telephone, but I can't even get close to the normal service now.  Any ideas on what I can do to increase my speed?

Hey, did you ever think about maybe calling tech support and demanding that they fix the problem. Obviously the problem is with the eMTA unless you have changed the MTU on your router or something. Adding the speedtier will do nothing to your download if your not even getting near the 6Mb download your supposed to get. Call up support. You probably got a bad eMTA.
