Must be a good day for downloading...

Recommended Posts

:::.. Download Stats ..:::

Connection is:: 1018 Kbps about 1 Mbps (tested with 748 KB)

Download Speed is:: 124 KB/s

Tested From:: http://www.testmy.net/

Bottom Line:: 18 times faster than 56K you can download 1MB in 8.26 second(s)

Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/cgi-bin/auth_check.cgi?num=252525

My signal strength is usually 97, yet today it's raining so my SS has dropped to 88.

all i know about signal strength is that on dsl connections with low signal strength (usally far away from CO) has to use Interleaved (error correction)  from dslmodem to default gateway to reduce packetloss.

that will give you a ping to gateway up to around 30 ms, instead of 5-10 ms, gamers hate that, and it also bring down speed. My isp has Interleaved enabled by default for xdsl, no matter if you need it or not  :lol:

So i tell them to call support and let them check signal strength and if its good, remove Interleved and use Fastpath

one guy with vdsl lowered hes ping to firsthop from 30 ms to 1 ms by calling them and use Fastpath

Unfortunely alot of ppl dosent know about this and, is stuck with poor pings and slow speed

I am on interleaved mode which is sort of like "Safe mode" where it wont have as much funtionality but it will run better signal wise. Im pretty sure I qualify for "fast" mode but some people at my isp dont know what "fast" mode is, so I wont be trying that anytime soon. I am 10,100 feet away from the CO, but my signals are as good as someone who is 4400 feet away. I think I should be able to get fast mode.
