HI, just want to thank all you guys for this great site. Anyways I just got comcast 6.0 last week. I live in miami, fl. near hialeah miami lakes. Anyways I've done several speed test on different sites and i'm getting anywhere from 3.6 to 3.0 speeds. If this keeps up i'm thinking of downgrading my service to 4.0 for ten bucks less. I will still be getting the same speeds i get now and be saving an extra ten bucks. Anyways my question is can i do something to get my speeds closer to the promised 6.0.. I heard about tweaking.. not sure what that is.. please help thxs again for the site and all the help you guys give..

I'm using a rca dcm425 thats what comcast gave me. i;m thinking of buying my own modem .. should i change to a motorola b1500.. do you think that might do a difference??

ok got the comcast tech to come over my house today.. and i got them to change my crapy rca modem to a motorola sb1520.. done a bit of tweaking and got my speed up from 3.3 to about 4.2.. still no 6.0.. anyways tried to lower my duplex to 10 half mode and it dropped my speeds to about 1.5.. so when i left it on 100mb full mode i got the 4.2.. i tried running the spybot and ad adware but it keeps freezing on me when i try to update it.. ANy ideas?? please help!! haven't ran ccleaner or cablenut yet because i still haven't scanned my computer with your recommended software because it keeps freezing.
