Help with Mediacom "HighSpeed"

Recommended Posts

Just moved to Florida, and just got Mediacom Highspeed.  I was extremely happy with the Comcast service I had in Albuquerque, and wrongly assumed Mediacom would be the same (I was running almost 3Mbps in ABQ).  Now look what I am stuck with

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

Connection is:: 975 Kbps about 1 Mbps (tested with 748 kB)

Download Speed is:: 119 kB/s

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

Test Time:: Tue Sep 06 2005 19:38:17 GMT-0600 (Mountain Standard Time)

Bottom Line:: 17X faster than 56K 1MB download in 8.61 sec

Diagnosis: May need help : running at only 29.16 % of your hosts average (mchsi.com)

Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-Q21TWAFGZ

What gives.  I haven't changed a single thing (except I ran CableNut).  Now I keep getting kicked from BF2 when I never got kicked before.  All my online gaming has seemed to slow to a crawl.  Sometimes even Firefox won't connect to the web.

I am running Windows XP with SP2, and a Linksys BEFCMU10 Cable Modem.  The only change (other than the service provider) has been switching cable modems (I had a Motorolla Surfboard) and I no longer sit behind a router.

I am really disappointed right now, and wonder if I am stuck with these speeds.  Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Aha!  It was a Zone Alarm issue.  I had to drop the program control to low (after I undid the CableNut tweaks).
