55% of speed :(


Recommended Posts

Advertised Speed:

7Mb down

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

Connection is:: 3789 Kbps about 3.8 Mbps (tested with 1496 kB)

Download Speed is:: 463 kB/s

Tested From:: https://testmy.net/ (server2)

Bottom Line:: 68X faster than 56K 1MB download in 2.21 sec

Diagnosis: Awesome! 20% + : 78.98 % faster than the average for host (qwest.net)

^ Ignore the diagnosis, I have a 7mb plan as most people seem to have the 1.5-3mb plan.

- Anyway, our house is new so the lines in our house are fine.

- The nearest qwest station is about 3 blocks away.

When I first got this set up I was running at 4.5mb down, I figured that was too slow for a 7mb line, so I got rid of all the spyware (4 tracking cookings, woopty doo). Then my average speed dropped to 4.2mb, wtf!

So I figured this must be a registry problem, so I downloaded (and purchased) the RegistryFix program and fixed all the errors.

396 registry errors.

But now it only runs at 3.8mb!

So I downloaded the Winsock fix program and repaired winsock

No luck.

No firewall (just an ActionTec DSL Modem/Gateway)

No router (using the gateway)

No spyware

No registry problems

Good lines

Athlon XP 3200 (512mb ram)

No other computers connected to LAN

No background programs (Just AVG and SpeedFan, nothing else)

No unecessary drivers/programs

Any ideas for why this is so slow and decreasing in speed everytime I fix a problem?
