Well...went to the site you suggested and got the following :oops:

3.3 megabits per second

Communications 3.3 megabits per second

Storage 398.6 kilobytes per second

1MB file download 2.6 seconds

Subjective rating Awesome <-------- there must be something wrong with those people.

That's where I rcvd most of the ifo and even followed the link to the calculator.  I even tried loading the values that were suggested but no go.  I'm going to contact Cox.  I really don't think that they have me set up right but are taking my money....especially when I see people that are on the regular plan and are blazing past me! :angry5:

You know, you should get referal credits (see below).  ;)

What router do you have?

This post made me dump sharing my inet via WiFi with my neighbors and signup for Comcast's Premium service (6Mbps down/768kbps up).  Not quite your premium speeds, but better then the 1.5Mbps I was getting before.

After installing it all, I still got 1.5Mbps.  So I ran a cable from my PC to the router for a direct connection.  BAM!  My speed went to 2.8Mbps.  Still not as fsat as their "standard" service.  So I thought, "What gives?"  and then remembered this post about removing the router.

So I did just that.  And I get the following:

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

Download Speed is:: 668 kB/s

Dang!  So what router do you have?  I have the old Linksys 802.11b WiFi + 4-port swirtch router.

The reason I ask for your router is my router has a 10Mbps port on it.  But plugging in my machine shows my cable modem has a 100Mbps port.  Perhaps our routers are too outdated to handle the speeds?  Bleh.  Will 'try' a 802.11G router from CompUSA.  'Try before you buy" thingy.  hehe.

My Router I believe is either 2201 or 2002 it's a Belkin 4 port cable/sl Gateway Router....I went to their website and got it flashed because it was a known issue to reduce the speeds...after the flash though there was no difference.  I believe we need new routers!  Mine's supposed to auto switch between the 10Mb and 100Mb...even at the 10Mb it should be good to go but its not.
