always slow download testing speeds.

Recommended Posts

can someone tell me why I always get slow download test speeds? I have a 7.7 mbps connection. But, everytime I run the smart test, it always runs the small ones, like 750 kb. And it always forwards me to the next test at least 5-7 times. Is it just because the servers are slow or something?

Also, most downloads from the web always seem so slow for me.

Assuming i'm given enough resources, I can steadily max out my download speed through torrents or other p2p traffic.

First of all....SmarTest assumes that you have no connection....so it starts with a small file and continues to step up the file size till it takes 7 seconds or more to down load the file....thus establishing a stable connection. If it says that your speed is slower than your advertised speed....then it really is...a meter on a torrent is not accuracy.  [nerdly]

Why is it peaking around 300kB/sec when I should be getting between 800-900 kB/sec?

EDIT: aaaaaaaaaand here's a screenshot of my connection working as expected in p2p: http://img170.imageshack.us/img170/3405/210200761509pmlh2.jpg

Hmm... nobody can answer this? Are the servers just being slow?

It's sunday, just hold on.  :smiley:

Try reading this, and only do the 2992 test directly, not the smart ttest. Also are you clearing out your temp files before testing?

Well, I fixed my problem. Turns out all I had to do was replace my ethernet card. Now pages load faster than ever as well as download speeds from the web. :shock:

My pings are A LOT better now as well. Getting less than 50ms from any decently fast website that I ping.

But why couldn't anybody recommend this before  :smile2:

Mmm...maybe because I never had to change one before.  :idea:
