newbie needs help

Recommended Posts

hi testmy

I came and signed up right after taking your download test and confirming that there's definetly something wrong with my connection. For the longest time (Ive been setup with Bell Sympatico high speed for about 3 years) Ive never had any issues but just within the last two days my download limit has fallen from ~250kbytes/s to 17kbytes/s.

Heres the score:

:::.. Download Stats ..:::

Download Connection is:: 129 Kbps about 0.1 Mbps (tested with 386 kB)

Download Speed is:: 16 kB/s

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

Test Time:: 2007/06/18 - 6:03am

Bottom Line:: 2X faster than 56K 1MB Download in 64 sec

Tested from a 386 kB file and took 24.545 seconds to complete

Download Diagnosis:: May need help : running at only 4.66 % of your hosts average (bell.ca)

D-Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-LJ2P5FUOY

User Agent:: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.3) Gecko/20070309 Firefox/2.0.0.3 [!]

.......................................

I did a search for download caps on bell sympatico and it said they were planning a 5GB download cap a couple years ago that never went through and high speed still has no bandwidth cap here.

Only other info I can tell you about my network is that theres two PCs in it (both are effected) we use an additional router (and always have) to connect to the ISP. Other PC was off while performing the test and slowest PC on the network is an AthlonXP.

If anyone knows a reason (heard rumors, etc) or think I may have done something to my connection, please let me know.

Thanks

My downloading speed normally caps around 250-265 kbytes per sec and now its 17.. I tried downloading a trailer a little while ago after resetting my modem and router again.. it hit 280 for about 10 seconds then dropped almost instantly to 17. :sad3:
