Cable speed slow.

Recommended Posts

I use to run 3mbs on downloads and then i unplugged my cable to rearrange the modem on my desk and when i did the test i got 2mbs-2.5. Now these are the speeds i got.

I tried everything on the help posts from scanning for spyware-viruses-disabling programs etc i even tried cablenut and i think i did somthing wrong becus it slowed the speeds even less.

Welcome to the forum PL 88. :hello:

If you haven't already, double check your connections ( cable and ethernet ) to make sure they are all tight.

Did you re-arrange any wiring when moving the modem?

And lastly, do you have a router in-line?

I just unplugged it for like 5 min to move my computer and plugged it back in like it was. No i am not using any routers. The average speeds were in the 2.5mbs -3 but still that is to slow then what i should be getting. The max on the website =10 mbps which of course varies but i dont even get half of that 5mbps or 1/4 of that i need som help here.

First, click this link: http://192.168.100.1/

Then navigate to the signal page, and copy that info and paste it here, please.

That will give me an idea of your downstream and upstream levels, for starters.

And, you can open Cablenut and click the "delete cablenut tweaks" button.

This will change all of the settings back to the default windows settings.

If the default settings don't help, then we can start the re-tweaking process later.

Levels look good, the only thing I am curious about is the fact that OOL is trying to deliver 10mbps downstream at 64 QAM.

That is completely out of your control, but what that means is that there is a 27mbps channel being shared in your node for all modems in it.

Most ISPs will run in 256 QAM (38.8mbps) when offering higher download rates.

If you are in a large node, that may be the issue - overselling bandwidth.

I say you try deleting your cablenut tweaks, since you were unsure about them, then re-start your PC and try speed testing a couple times for consistency.

Is your download supposed to be 10mbps?

Just curious, is OOL's only package 10000/1000?

I don't think that tweaking is going to gain 6mbps for you, so there must be another issue.

Try this test: https://testmy.net/forum/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=6415.0;id=3093

Run the batch file, then post the results back here.

If you are supposed to have the 10000/1000 plan, then yes you are below average.

Try this one last speed test.It is an ftp download test from OOL's network.

Let it download at least 3/4 of the file, and make note of the speed. (screenshot if you can) and post back. And sorry, I am running out of ideas, I still don't think tweaking will help that much.

If anyone else as a suggestion, please join in.

That's only 2064 kbps, not very good for OOL.

I would give them a call this week and ask them to check into your service.

You can try VanBuren's 10000/1000 Cablenut settings if you want, but there is still another issue.

There was 1 time out in your tracert to testmy.net earlier, so maybe try pinging google.com for a longer time period; type "ping google.com -n 500" in command prompt (will ping 500 times).

You may also want to try a different ethernet cable from the modem to the PC. (I guess I'm assuming that you're NOT connected via USB, let me know if you are since USB is notoriously slow with a cable modem).
