The topic says "very slow connection" I personally dont see anything slow about that connection. You should be happy u have the 15/2 connection. But none the less people want there connection at their caps. So maybe try cablenut with the 15/2 fiber file. Keep trying a different times of day too. Hope this helps  :D

lilwill, where are you located?  I'm curious as to your proximity to the testmy.net server which is near downtown Dallas.  Here is my download from that server which is just a few miles from my house in Flower Mound, TX.

Testmy.net:

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

Connection is:: 15665 Kbps about 15.7 Mbps (tested with 12160 kB)

Download Speed is:: 1912 kB/s

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

Test Time:: Mon Sep 05 2005 11:03:31 GMT-0500 (Central Daylight Time)

Bottom Line:: 280X faster than 56K 1MB download in 0.54 sec

Diagnosis: Looks Great : 0.73 % faster than the average for host (14.63)

Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-O475LPDZ2

However, when I test from a server that is much farther away I get a significant drop in speed.  This server , for example, is in Virginia.  Due to some slow downs along the way I loose about 5Mbps in download speed.

You need to have a server that is in close proximity to your location in order to have a benchmark.  I have three local servers that I use as my benchmark.  As long as I'm getting my full speed from those servers then I'm happy.  Since Verizon can't control what goes on outside their system I don't raise a stink unless my benchmark servers are showing significant dropoff.

Let me know where you are and I'll point you to some servers that are close by.

I'd say that looks about right.  You could probably improve that upload score with some cablenut adjustments but the download looks pretty good.

best way i can describe bandwith on a normal connection is it act much like a seesaw

if your DL and UL are idle and your just sitting there then it will be level and your testing should come back fine.

If your getting better download speed ie 15.2-15.5 then your upload will suffer and vice versa now this is not the standard way of thinking but its the easiest and most undertood method for explaining the way bandwith works in most cases for services like cable and verizon's fios.

Hope that helps on explaining if it didnt oh well i tried and im vored so BLAH! LOL

:D

but yea ur speed DL wise looks fine try re-testing a few times at different times and if it doesn't improve then try those cablenut settings unfortunately they can garantee 2Mbps on UP TO 2Mbps

:(

Any more questions or just wanna know more lemme know i'm happpy to help.

Well I'm having a similar problem.  I have used CableNut and a Fiber 15/2 profile.  My download comes in between 7 and 12mbps. It's not slow, but I should be getting more. 

I tried the Rochester one linked above and got 11/2.05 and then the site stopped working

Speakeasy NYC

Download Speed: 12400 kbps (1550 KB/sec transfer rate)

Upload Speed: 1757 kbps (219.6 KB/sec transfer rate)

From this site I'm getting a very bad results.

Oh and also this is going through  Belkin Pre-N Wireless Router and to a computer with a Belkin Wireless Pre-N card in it.

I have never gotton good results from testmy. net, Speakeasy or the dslreports speed tests. However, I do get good results from the more "approved" high speed sites. Try the following sites:

http://jlab4.jlab.org:7123/  (this site also lists other similar type sites on its page)

http://speedtest.tx.charter.com/

The above sites consistently give me around 14.8-15.2/1.9-2.02 speeds (I also used cablenut to tweak my settings). I can also verify these speeds by monitoring the traffic with NetPerSec. These results are with the Dlink wired router replaced with a Belkin 7230-4 wireless g router. I get the same results from my wired desktop and my wireless laptop (using the Belkin 7010 wireless g card.

I was just at someone elses house who also has 15/2 Fios and nyc.speakeasy.net get them over 15mbps while it is still giving me around 12mbps.

Run the tests several times. I also sometimes get lower numbers like yours. Also try the the Charter site - it seems to be the only one that identifies the link as  a 100mb/s instead of 10 mb/s link.

If you can, send yourself a large file and monitor the upload and download speed with a utility such as NetPerSec. Also, try the speed test at the OOL site:

http://www.dslreports.com/forum/ool, NetPerSec shows a download speed of around 15 -16 mb/s.

Well nevermind I'm upgrading to 30/5 for $55 a month.  I don't know what's going on though since so far only my upload has increased.

Any chance that your laptop is located far enough away from the router so as to get reduced speeds (ie., <15 mb/s)?

BTW, what pc card controller does your laptop use? I'm thinking of getting the pre-n setup, but there is an issue with the Belkin pre-n pc card and O2Micro pc card controllers.

Harvey

[EDIT}

Other possibilities:

1. Zone Alarm 5.x and above are known to cause speed issues - if you use it, try uninstalling.

2. I use Avast as my AV software - there is an issue with the Standard Shield and IE. If you use Avast, try disabling it while you speed test.

3. Other AV products may cause an issue.

Actually I'm using the Belkin Wireless Pre-N Desktop Card.  And the router is sitting basically right next to the computer.  I don't think I have anything running that could slow it down, especially since I get the same speeds from my other computers also.  I do have Symantec Norton Antivirus Corporate, Steam, Trillian, BWMeter, Google Desktop 2, Xfire, [email protected] VNC Server, and Orb running.

And I get around the same results with Norton Antivirus off.

From what I have read, the Pre-N routers have diminished speeds (apparently due to near-field effects) for wireless clients which are less then 10 feet away. Am I correct in assuming that you get good speeds for wired clients and that all your wireless clients are within 10 feet of the router?

If so, is there any way for you to temporarily relocate the router so as to increase the distance and then retry the speed tests?

Well my laptop over ethernet gets around 16/3  and my wireless desktop gets around 13/5 every time.  :?:

Well, I guess I'm out of ideas for now. You might try posting in the Belkin Forum at dslreports.com. - there's a lot of people with experience with the Belkin pre-n stuff.
