Welcome to the forum AGuineaPig.  :wave:

Lets see. You may have done these, but they were not on your list.

Who is your anti-virus?

Have you tried with your firewall down?

Have you ran your AV in safe mode?

Are you using a wireless router? Can you bypass it directly to the modem?

Have you tweaked it yet? Using cable-nut. http://www.testmy.net/forum/t-1013

Have you defragged lately?

Is that test done with the smart test? Could you try directly with the 1013 File Test.

Are you grounded properly?

Which sticky j-vall? :D

Tommie Gorman, I believe that j-vall must be referring to the Sticky on the Make It Faster board: [LINK].

Well when I loged into my 2wire router it said on my Outgoing and Incomming

Outgoing 384

Incomming 384

I might tihnk I have gotten the older one which is not a 1.5

When I went to other fourms and I asked if they have SBC and have the 2wire router I also told them that to post the outgoing and the incomming speeds.

Well they did and when I looked at it it seems that it's speeds were over 1.5+

I would think that I have the old one

Either that, or your line simply will not support 1.5Mb speeds and SBC has automatically throttled you down to a speed that your line can support.

Go to:  http://www.dslreports.com/forum/ilec,am

and post your problem there. There are actual SBC tech's on that forum who can look into your account and let you know what is wrong, or even fix it.
