You are getting close to your advertised speed and you are getting far better than the average for your ISP.

It seems that everything is fine.

Which Windows are you running at the moment?

Try disabling Norton Internet Security while running the speed test and see if you can squeeze a little more juice out of your connection.

im running windows xp pro , with service pack 2 , and have got all the updates , i did disable my norton  ,.bt i cnt disable my hardware firewall lol :P , so wud u say my speed is okish? i connect at 2.2mbs; bt i get slow speeds sometimes like speeds of 250k? n i heard of someone whether its true or not , that he gt 700k a second download speed on his 2 mb n i kinda find that hard 2 believe , coz if u do teh maths behind it 2272 divide 8 = 284k , so 284kbs will be the fastest download speed he will get at a constatn stayin arnd that speed. n i thort if he downloads at 700k he wud b on what 700k multipy that by 8 is 5600 , so he wud need to connect at 5.6 megs , bt he says he has a 2mb connection. now i think he is eithe rbullshittin or his isp have made him faster bt he dnt realize it . ny1 agree with my theory or not? n btw ny1 gt any tips or hints to tweak my modem n make it faster? bearin in mind my other post which i started this subject with? :)
