SmartBro(ken) Slow I need help


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I am new here in your forums and already noticed that there are many SmartBro users having

the same problem... and after reading many topics I've decided to put up my own topic and not join the other same topic so that I can easily monitor reply's and suggestion...sorry for creating a separate topic... hope you understand... well you can always delete it.

here my problem....

I tested my speed and here are the results:

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

Download Connection is:: 58 Kbps about 0.06 Mbps (tested with 386 kB)

Download Speed is:: 7 kB/s

Upload Connection is:: 316 Kbps about 0.3 Mbps (tested with 579 kB)

Upload Speed is:: 39 kB/s

User Agent:: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.6) Gecko/20070725 Firefox/2.0.0.6 [!]

as you could see my DL is 57kbps (dial-up) but I am using SmartBro which supposed to be 368+kbps same problem with the others but I think much worst...

so I need help with you pro's there...

I'm using Windows Xp sp3 and I got Caplenut installed and also TCP/IP optimizer

tech check my connection yesterday and they change my IP into a dynmic one and also rehome me which I can do alone.... but first thing first I only ask them when will our base station be upgraded and their answer is its on their way and I told them is there a definite time of the upgrade they said still its on the way!!

the fact is they don't know when and I'm guessing that there is no real date...MAN THEY ARE SLOW... they didn't even check my bandwidth after the rehome!! how will they know if it improves or not!! but anyway It appear I need to be the one to make my connection better.... I will do the tweaking you guys suggested....

Here are the result of their changing my IP and base tower.....

I encounter another problem

when I access my canopy....

I think I access a wrong canopy is that possible??

because I know my ESN number... and the ESn number indicated there wasn't mine

and it has an identification like site name and location and the address indicates someone near me or almost at the same area as me....

is my canopy damaged or is it normal??
