Never use the smart test with a sat connection.  Always use the 2992KB file for downloads and the 579KB file for uploads to get accurate results..

I assume that price is in Austrailian currency? 

Thank god, I thught hughes had been topped.  :lol: ($139.95) Or he was still paying for his equipment.

And definately too small a file test.  :angel:

And remember simi-dimpskin, he is testing from 1/2 way around the world.

Well try one of these U/L tests for your U/L then.

As pretty much shown by your U/L part of the speed test problem is your distance from Dallas Texas US. And most will say you cannot tweak a satelite connection.

Do you look for updates for your modem, or do they do theirselves? If it is self hosted they say not. If you get the updates yourself, then maybe so.

Without being argued with you might try the TCP optimizer.

Which leads to the

But many say it can not be tweaked. I think it does, but most say not. I also say it definately did not hurt any.  :smiley: Don't forget to back up your current settings on the first page. And set the dial to your advertised speeds.

Good luck.  :smile2:
