Wired Home LAN is strange

Recommended Posts

Guest cableboy

I am running a WIRED home LAN: One XP, One ME, One Win98.

I am running Comcast Cable connection rate 1500/256

XP and W98 are using Phine line networking; ME connect to firewall/router

I have done all Broadband Tweaks and such; no 'apparent' problems.

Speed was great on all machines until I checked a couple days ago.

XP and ME are still getting 'rated' speed of 1500/256

W98 is only getting 400 down, but 240 up.

I've run Spybot and Adaware, blah, blah.

I can't figure out why the W98 is suddenly not observing the speed limit while the other two machines are fine.

Any suggestions on what can be the problem?

have you ever has dial-up on that machine??

when you had dial-up did you ever download anything that said "make your connection faster" ?

Most likely it has changed your reg settings and is creating a bottle neck in your connection. Try using my BroadBand patch this may correct your problem

Thank you.

Long story short...Turns out that the HPNA adapter is starting to fail. I swapped it out with another I have and all is well.
