Is this the part where I suck it up and accept my speeds for a subscribed 1500/384? Thanks again for all of your help VanBuren... you've been ever so generous.

I feel your pain :(  My Verizon DSL is abysmal.  I am actually on hold with them now hoping they will tell me there is something they can do.  If not, I will reinstall Windows XP, set everything back to normal, and try the tweaks here.  But even if all of that can only double my upload speed then I am switching to Cable modem.

Out of curiousity, where abouts do you live?  I am in Richmond, VA, and wonder if Verizon is this bad everywhere.

For the record

After a lengthy (90-minute) phone call to Verizon I was able to clear up my problem:

Long story short:  A year ago I contacted Verizon to downgrade my service to a cheaper plan.  Coincidently, they were in the process of upgrading their basic plans so their new basic plan (1.5 / 384) was going to be about the same as my old premium account.

Well, somehow there was a mix-up.  I do not know if it was due to my call, the conversion they were going through, or something else entirely, but apparently when they made changes to my service they set me up in billing as a 1.5 / 384 customer, but technically they had me

Misery loves company .........I called verizon yesterday to inquire about moving up to 3.0 MPS service.  I had put a order in a month ago and when asked they said the work order had been executed and I did have faster service.  I called again later in the day and when i asked why I cant see the speed increase they sent me to billing??????  I come to find out that with another year commitment they would set me up with the faster service and send me the new dsl router/modem asap.  So im thinkin if your contract isnt close to being up they dont want to upgrade you for free.  Just my two cents....now that this has happened im much, much faster....

I have a question for VanBurean I guess, I have a westell 2200 moden from verizon, they sent me a Versalink 327W router/modem.  Can my westell 200 provide the 3.0 service for me or do I have to install the new Versalink to get the faster bandwidth?

Thanks ahead of time....Daysbtween

i do not know, try google and search for specifications of that modem

VanBuren... thanks again for all of your help in tweaking my system. I'm still running at the same base speeds... but it sure beats dialup, and for that I am thankful. Thanks for all of your efforts and keep me in mind if you have any ideas.

open cablenut, click delete cablenut tweaks and click save to registry and reboot

call your ISP and let them check your connection

when they fixed it, come back and lets make it even faster  ;)

I just spoke with a Veriuzon representitive, after removing CableNut adjustments.

The representitive ran some line tests from their end, while she had me run some speed tests on my end.

After initializing my modem and rebooting my pc, the results came back 1300 download and 150 upload, which according to Verizon is "very good" considering that my max download available is 1500.

Verizon was quick to decline any "NY Metro" type plans in my area, unless I wanted to fork over some more cash, The idea of buying more speed is appealing, but not if I can do so by tweaking.

dern my bad, i thought you was on a 3000 / 768 package :(

use this file, its made for 1500/ 384 and should work alot better

your upload should be able to go faster then that, i thought Verizon had a 384 Kbps upload on 1500 package

dern, this was odd, i suggest you delete all tweaks and let tech from your ISP bring up your speed

open dr.Tcp and where you see MTU, use delete and erase the value 1492 so the field is blank, click apply

now open cablenut and click delete cablenut tweaks and click save to registry

now reboot

post again when your ISP has fixed your speed, atleast your upload, im almost sure it suppose to be 384 Kbps

also powercycle your router and modem for 30 full seconds

good luck

VanBuren :)
