I have NTL's cable bb 128p sec connection but it appears to be slowing down. Clicking on the icon always tells me that I am connected at 10Mbps, irrespective of how speedily or otherwise it appears to be running. I tried the test on Bandwith Place which told me the speed was 242kilobits per second. Is this the speed that I should be getting - i have no knowledge of what the measurements mean, I just know this is beginning to feel abit treacle uphill. I run xp home.

You are connected to the cable modem via a 10mb ethernet connection, so the speed rating on the connectivity icon will always be 10mb.

Your scores on Bandwidth place should make you happy, you're paying for a 128 connection and your getting 242 if that test is to be believed.

Tried the Bandwidth site myself recently. In two accesses within 30 mins it came up with vastly differing results and another poster told me it was not reliable.

Your in an ex-cable and wireless area and you connect via your Set Top Box ;)

Thanks guys. Yes I am and do mcullum_DX4life, does that make a difference?
Tried it Coaster 3 - I got a reading of 30kbps, Im not a happy bunny. The info on cablemodem-net says a common speed for 128K ISDN line is 16 and 150 for cable modem so where do I find a guide for a 128K connectionvia a set top box?
