Speed test can't be right - waaaay too fast

Recommended Posts

Since the DW6000 is capped at 1mbps, how can this be right?  I consistently show scores of 550-650 mbps using Firefox, but 2000-3000 using IE6.  Is there an issue with the different Java platforms used by these two, since this is a java-based test?  I used the large test file and repeated a few times after clearing cache and all temp files, etc.

When downloading real-world files from websites, I get an average of 100-120 kbps - no where near this speed.

No, no back button and no Internet accelerator.  I have done this test many times, on different days, and consistently get 500-600 when using Firefox, and 1400-3000 when using IE.  It makes no sense to me at all.  If it were java-based, then maybe the difference between Sun Java and MS Java Virtual Machine might have something to do with it - but since it's not, I'm perplexed.  Several people on the DirecWay forum on DSLReports have mentioned noticing  the same difference.
