Is There Any Way To Squeeze Out The Other 1/2 Megabit


Recommended Posts

I have Road Runner's 8 mb Premium and I can only get 7.5

I used the Cablenut Cable 8000/512 file.

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

Connection is:: 7468 Kbps about 7.5 Mbps (tested with 5983 kB)

Download Speed is:: 912 kB/s

Tested From:: https://testmy.net/ (server1)

Test Time:: Fri Jul 8 13:45:49 CDT 2005

Bottom Line:: 133X faster than 56K 1MB download in 1.12 sec

Diagnosis: Awesome! 20% + : 92.42 % faster than the average for host (rr.com)

I'm sorry, router or no?  And which Internet browser do you use?  Norton auto-protect enabled or no?  Do you have instant messengers or file-sharing programs running usually, or anything else that uses the Internet connection?  Have you checked out the links in my sig?  Have you tried cablenut tweaks?

SB5100 should be fine for your speeds, btw. Not making any promises (your speeds are just dandy as they stand) but we'll see if we can get you hooked up.

I use a router on a seperate NIC for my home network. RR connects directly to the onboard NIC and I don't share the net connection with the network. I disable Norton's for the tests. I don't run IM's or keep file-sharing programs running. I used the 8000/512 Cablenut tweak.

hmmm...we're still a little short of the cap.... :angry3:

I have an idea.  When Norton's is disabled, only some (not all) components become disabled.  For the purposes of this test, can you go into Norton's and configure it so that it doesn't start when windows starts?  I believe you click options and empty the checkbox to start up when windows starts.  Then reboot your machine and try the test at the link that VanBuren provided (make sure all other programs are shutdown too).  This is just on a whim, but if you want to try it, it may make a difference.... :shrug:
