Cable download speed


Recommended Posts

I am running a cable line through my house, through a motorola sb5100 modem, then to a linksys wireless router, ethernet to a windows me laptop, and wireless via channel 6 to a windows 98se desktop. I am using Tweak master on both computers and the fastest I can get on the laptop is 2.9 Mbps, the fastest on the desktop is 3.0 Mbps. The 98se is a much slower pc, running a wireless connection on 54mbps card and router, rather than ethernet. Any suggestions on rwin settings or anything else would be helpful.

As you can see from my speeds above, I'm more than happy with my Cox service here in S.Cal.

My question is this.I'm currently running W98SE on an "Old" Dell P-II 350 w/one of the original motorola modems that cox provided when I 1st started my service 4 yrs ago.

If I upgrade my equipment to a new P4 2 gig PC as opposed to my old P-II 350,will it have any effects on my speeds?
