Slow download speed.

Recommended Posts

I'm running Centurytel DSL/Netopia modem(they suppiled).

Windows XP Home(SP2)

Your connection is: 264 Kbps or 0.26 Mbps

You Downloaded at: 32 kB/s

You are running: 5 times faster than 56K and can Download 1 megabyte in 32 second(s)

Test Time:: 2006/08/12 - 9:37am

Test Browser and OS info: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; Maxthon)

Test ID: 00TKY3869 (if this is a screenshot go to testmy.net to see if this is fake)

Diagnosis ^info^: May need help : running at only 16.8 % of your hosts average (centurytel.net)

This was tested from a 1075 kB file and took 33.344 seconds to complete

My problem is, I have a slow download rate. I was somewhere around 11 to 12kB/s. I power cycled the pc and the modem, spy swept it and all that good stuff and it pushed me up too around 30/32 kB/s.

So is there anyway I can tweak my connection some more, too way more of a faster speed ?

DSL is my connection as i stated in the first post and yes my pc is clean, also tried those TCP Optimizers and CableNut. With no seen improvement in speed.

Also I believe my advertised speed is something like 256/146.

if your advertised is 256/146kbps then your fine your not going to get any better till you upgrade the connection.
