Help with speeds please!

Recommended Posts

Hey, I'm pretty new to increasing my speeds. However I have read the guides, followed them, ran cablenut and used the calculator to enter my preferences, however after all of that... my speeds are still the same. I have comcast, am behind a router (linksys) and zonealarm( although after disabling and re-opening browser no increase in speed was found) I have 3 stars from the test. My speeds are as followed:

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

Connection is:: 1880 Kbps about 1.9 Mbps (tested with 5983 kB)

Download Speed is:: 229 kB/s

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

Test Time:: Wed Dec 07 2005 19:54:41 GMT-0600 (Central Standard Time)

Bottom Line:: 34X faster than 56K 1MB download in 4.47 sec

Traceroute:  maps the path of data from local machine to targetted host.  Way cool because it bypasses software/spyware which would affect your speedtest.  It's a good means of determining if it's somethiing on your machine slowing you down, or something in the network
