On Monday I rang ntl and asked them to up grade my modem speed from the 512k to 2meg and they said fine. For the first day it was ok and the downloads were very fast. Now the downloads have slowed down again to what they normally were at the 512k speed. Is there any way I can check what speed my modem is working at. I have tried broad band medic but that’s no good.
I also have a wireless router running of my system. However that pc is hardly in use. I have run scans to see if there are not any NASTYS on the pc that could be slowing it down but there’s nothing.
Sorry for butting in on your thread. I just tried those tests but I don't understand the results. I got downstream 87.9Kb/sec and upstream 10.6Kb/sec. What does that mean, I am supposed to be on 1mb with NTL via my set top box (which is a Pace and will only accept up to 1mb). If I want 2mb I have to get the box replaced. Thanks.
