Roadrunner Turbo 15/2 1mbit down =/


Recommended Posts

Hey whats up guys, haven't been around here in a long time :P. Glad to see this place is still kicking.

I recently moved into my new house and i upgraded to the RR turbo package 15/2. I was getting 13-14/2 pretty constant for the first couple of days. But now at certain times either early when i get home from work in the morning or late in the afternoon, my speed will drop to under 1mbit down.. but my upload stays at least 1.5mbits or higher. After about 10 min. of me restarting and checking the cables, the speed goes back up to normal.

This is a test of after i had the problem...

For these tests, im running straight from the modem to the PC. I was plugged into my router, but even after i hooked it up straight to the modem.. the problem persisted for about 5 min. before getting the speed back to normal.

I was using a Comcast 15/2 tweak, but it didnt really do much to the speed. Im using my default values right now. Im of course virus/spyware free and all that good stuff.

Anyone else experience this problem or have a cablenut tweak for the RR turbo package i could tryout. I'm gonna call brighthouse and see if perhaps work was being done in the area. Its just odd to have the speed spike that randomly and it be only the down speed.

~Thx

I got off the phone with brighthouse and they gave me the standard run around. The only useful info i got from em was that they were receiving a small number of calls that were like mine and if there was an outage it would take up to 2-3 hours for it to be fixed.

My Road Runner 10/1 on friday night was at at 5mbit down.  I figure everyone off school and work cloged it up? (or it could of been the computer in the other room lol)  I see different speeds from sunrise, to noon, to sunset.  I would be interested to see a few of your tests done over a couple hour span.  For the most part, tweaking will change your maximum and not your minimum speed (unless you make it worse).  :grin2:
