Data speed


Recommended Posts

I'm new at this but here goes:  I recently got Dish Satellite Internet service package that is supposed to run at 1Mbps.  Using TestMy it shows my download speed is about 700kbps.  Which isn't very good.  Anyway, the little icon in the lower right of my screen next to the time of day shows that I'm running up to 81Mbps!!!  What's going on?  Oh, I'm running wireless using Linksys router.

travkay, first welcome to the forum and we hope you enjoy your stay here. That icon by the clock is showing the speed of your NIC card not your internet speed! You got to remember your on Dish Satellite Internet and not Cable or DSL. Your signal has to go a long way and back. You could try using TCP Optimizer. I will attach a zip file for that. You might try reading the topics in my signature at he bottom. Keep coming back someone will come along with satellite and help.           


Edit: Forgot to add file! :idiot2:
