Why the different speeds? Insight BB cable


Recommended Posts

I have an up to 4000K insight cable connection thru a netgear wgr614 wireless router.

I used to get the similar speeds on most speed tests, with best speeds from testmy.net,,

I now get a big variance depending on where I test.

Welcome to the forum Rlanham  :wave:

What happens when you do not use the router, directly plugged into the modem?

My second question would be, when was the last time you cleaned out your comp?

Rlanham, Welcome to the forum. I have the 4000/384 from Insightbb and my speeds are steady every where I test. I don't use a router. Do you clear your cache before you test?

I have a strange problem.. those speedtest were with my router inline.

If hook cable modem directly to desktop, I have no problem.  I have tried a different router, cables etc. to no avail.  Last night speeds were find again thru router after midnight, but problem back again this morning.

I use crap cleaner, adaware, everything religiously.. I have no viruses or spyware.  I used to be able to run a tracert, not it times out.., but connection running at 3700K on all speed tests, until this morning again.

It is a mystery.  I have done a google search and a few people have experienced the same problem, but have not found a solution.

I guess I will call Insight tonight if I am still having speed problem to see if there is some type of power fluctuation.  Of course they just have you hook up modem directly to pc and of course everything is fine then.
