Another connection question!


Recommended Posts

Ok, I had posted earlier that my connection speed is suppose to be 1.5mb through wildblue.  I did my download test and here are the results.  not that I am complaining, but can someone tell me why its shows a faster connection than what I am suppose to have?  And also why my connection speed through my router keeps changing on me.

The test shows damn near what you should be getting hey ?  :)

I can't answer that question exactly, ( I can ramble a bit ) lol, but what I do know is when you download smaller data chunks, your connection will " seem  " to be downloading faster then it really is, plus docsis ( the flow of data packets in , and out  ) has allot to do with it. Caps are where they set your throughput, you get  " speed bursts " at the beginning sometimes until the flow regulates. Or it may appear as you are getting more then you really are.

Ever notice on a large download in windows , you'll get an average d/l speed at the end ?  It should be close to what the test was, plus or minus many variables ie: hops, ping times, distance , and network traffic.

I'm sure that didn't answer much, but hell, someone here will surely have a better answer, and this may give you something to start with.
