I need help!!!!

Recommended Posts

I have had CoX out to my place a couple of times and they can't figure out why my computer is only getting about 1MB download when I am paying for the 5MB download. My upload is fine at 768KB. Is there any setting in the registry that can be changed to increase the transfer speed in downloads or increase the speed in the internet overall. I havent done any changes whatsoever to my computer. The setting are default of Windows XP Pro SP2.

My computer is

p4 3.0 With HT

1.5GB PC3200 RAM

160GB WD 8MB

FX5900 128MB

100 Base T

    Cox has come out twice and they give me the same answer every time.. "The line is fine and they are no problems on their End."

One of my friends had the EXACT same problem just as you described with Cox, after about 2 months they FINALLY figured out his cap was set at the 1MB spot, so you may call them up and ask for them to check your cap. Good luck. :D

I maintain my computer on a daily basis to make sure there is nothing out of the ordinary installed or running in the background.  I haven't tried any tweaks because I dont want to risk making it worse. I am running Win XP Pro SP2. My upload works great at 768KB. I took the advice and called COX to check my CAP and they said it was at 5MB download. I need help!!

I had COX bring out a FIELD SUPERVISOR and he figured out that is was their fault for me getting 1.0MB average download VS 5.0MB download im paying for. They are going to fix as they told me... so i wait patiently for my internet to come back into life... Wish me luck fellow peoples.. :huh: :huh:

:) evildevil,

Cool that you stayed with the problem to get it fixed.......I think I would ask for a month or two of free service for the hassle when its resolved, it doesn't hurt to ask....... anyway let us know and show us your improved score when it happens....at least they did admit it is their problem and didn't just fix it and act like nothing was wrong.  :)

:) Glad to hear that. I believe that COX (at least in Tucson) takes problems seriously and tries to fix them. I never worked for COX but I did work for Qwest years ago and it had problems then and still do........anyway glad your almost back to "normal"  :)
