Hey Jeff, good to hear your still pissin and moanin about vista  :haha: :haha:

Thats one nasty trcrt you got there, and your so close the the server  eeek.

Now I know better then to treat you as a beginner, you having all those years in the computer field as you have, you have more knowledge about this stuff then most of us here ! If not all of us.

So when you have a question like this, I dunno where to go.

Whats the connection like now, are you still in the same building with the same connection ?

From what you posted, looks as if there's still a router in the planet that isn't configured right, even though just before it, there's a 500MS return from within cox.  ;/

i have cox 12/1 service too...just found out that i got upgraded awhile back and was never told...wondered why my speeds were always in that range...hahaha...

i always forget how to do the ping and tracert thingy...but i have a question...

weren't you living in a situation where u might be sharing that connection with others...like maybe it's being split over several computers...??...just a thought

so tell me how to do the tracert and ping thing...hahaha...ping thing...and i'll run it...should be about the same for both of us...we're about the same distance

one thing i did do recently was change my actual cable line to a better one

Happy B-Day Mr Walker and happy to hear you are feeling better - from what I can see your modem has been running well for the last couple days.

3.6 billion UN-errored packets; 77 corrected (meaning the packets were corrected via the error correction process) and zero UNcorrectable packets.

Don't ask me how I know this; it is a secret Ninja thing- but please RE if you want more info.

k...got that thank you...

now how do u copy it?

On the cmd window somewhere click  "alt+space+p" , a menu will appear, click properties, look for "quick edit mode" tick that box,once thats enabled, you can left-click in the cmd window and highlight whataver text you want to copy, then just hit return and it'll be copied to your clipboard, you can paste similarly.

Since you would not have asked this question I am assuming quick edit mode ia already one because copy doesn't appear in quick edit mode, so just right click in the cmd window, and hit "mark" then you can select like you would anywhere else, (it'll turn white) then hit enter, and it's in your clipboard. Hope I said that right lol

no i'm sure ur right...i was just telling one of my droll stories

You know what , I was for some reason thinking we were talking about the router, I dunno :/  So something else now, you tellin me that cox makes there users pay for a modem ? Thats insane, and hard to believe. What a bad wrap ! Never heard of it around here, the ISP's have there own modems. Now I do have a linksys modem I used for a little while, it worked great, but when i switched to ISP VoIP, I switched back to there's, which is an old certifiable POS that no one can even get into, including the ISP.  :haha:

i don't think they rent them anymore but they did at one time...i bought this one years ago from cox...7 years or so ago...he was saying it's old...and to budget for a new one...and recommended that i shoot for something call docsis3...from where ever...but i don't think you can get them from cox anymore cuz he never hit me up for that...
