WTF? 64Kbps on an advertised 1.5Mbps?

Recommended Posts

My download test showed I was downloading at 64 kbps while I have an advertised 1.5 Mbps download and 896 Kbps upload. What the hell is this, dialup? I'm running on XP and my provider is qwest. This really sucks. Help me out here PLEASE!

:::.. Download Stats ..:::

Connection is:: 521 Kbps about 0.5 Mbps (tested with 579 kB)

Download Speed is:: 64 kB/s

Tested From:: http://www.testmy.net/

Test Time:: Fri Mar 18 23:32:49 MST 2005

Bottom Line:: 9X faster than 56K 1MB download in 16 sec

Diagnosis: May need help : running at only 54.05 % of your hosts average (qwest.net)

Alright, guys. Thanks for the help. I reconfigured some of my connections and what not and now its working a bit faster at about 160Kbps, but still not as fast as it should be. I would use cablenut, but I'm just not all that knowing of how all of this works. Any other suggestions?
