bandwidth and broadband speed ??

  rupie 20:57 21 Dec 2004

My broadband speed seems to have slowed is it just me or is there a way of measuring the speed and band width. I know that the contention ratio can change the results at different times ???

Thanks for your tests. I failed all of them. What happens is that when I click on a link there is a 5 sec delay and then it loads, all be it very fast, but confusing .

have you changed any TTL/MTU settings manually? Or
used a netbooster program of some type which may be the reason for your troubles.

Thanks. At midnight over this xmas week the quickest speed I got was 523kbps, when the network should be quiet. I should have upto 2mb I also know that I will never get the full 2mb but this is miles off. I will keep testing over the next week or so and see what I get.

If you have a 2mb connection then i would agree that the speed you have is slow on my 1.1mb connection i get 928 down(116KB/sec)242 up (30.3KB/sec) and somtimes faster, thats from the link Graham left,so yours might be a bit off.

I live in a remote location and so it is a wireless network from a 2 way satalite hub. I am 60m from the hub. Does anybody know how fast this system can go ??

Please describe your service. The name of the ISP and the type of connection. e.g. Pipex ADSL 512K thru a wireless router.
