0.29 Mbps speeds with Verizon DSL


Recommended Posts


          This is my first post and I need help. I am running Verizon DSL. I was to be getting 768K and I'm running at 128K (according to infospeed.verizon.net). So I checked here and got this,

:::.. testmy.net test results ..:::

Download Connection is:: 290 Kbps about 0.29 Mbps (tested with 386 kB)

Download Speed is:: 35 kB/s

Upload Connection is:: 95 Kbps about 0.1 Mbps (tested with 386 kB)

Upload Speed is:: 12 kB/s

Tested From:: https://testmy.net (Server 1)

Test Time:: 2006/11/09 - 3:10pm

D-Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-02EV7495X

U-Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-THDI54OYA

User Agent:: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1) Gecko/20061010 Firefox/2.0 [!]

No matter what I try, my speeds are slow to the point of ISDN or Dial-Up. The Download Test was the Dual Speed.

Please I need help. Thank you for your assistance in this matter.

Well first off welcome to TMN DragonKing27!  :welcome::wave:

Have you tried tweaking yet? You can use one of two programs. TCP Optimizer or Cablenut.

TCP Optimizer- https://www.speedguide.net/downloads.php

Cablenut- http://www.testmy.net/forum/t-1013

I will attatch your cable nut setting all you have to do is go to www.cablenut.com and downlaod the program.

You also might check here. A dirty machine can not run fast.  :wink2:


Also try a larger test file instead of the dual test. Since it is the 768 I would try the 1496 test file. It may actually give you faster speeds. I took the Dual test last night, and went from a 1800 kbps tested with the 2992 down to 1000 kbps  tested with a 1496. So direct testing works much better.  :grin2:
