Hi folks. I'm running XP Pro SP2, AVG and ZA Pro with an internal Conexant Access Runner ADSL modem. Up to last week I had 1Mb/s Plusnet broadband, all sweet, happy bunny. Plusnet have notified me that their new 8Mb/s service has reached me, lovely, except when I do a speed test on Plusnet, I'm still only hitting around 1Mb download speed. My ADSL modem control panel tells me it is receiving at around 6Mb/s and transmitting at around 400Kb/s. I understand that the full 8Mb is subjective to certain conditions, but if my modem sez it is hitting 6Mb, shouldn't my speed test reflect this? Could I have a firwall or software issue slowing my transfer rates? Cheers
I'm back. Tried the Drtcp tweaks, no different. Speed tests still show me around the 900Kb/s mark. Am I expecting the correct thing? I'm told I have up to 8Mb/s speed, does that mean my speed test result should be around 8Mb/s dependant on my line conditions, distance from exchange etc?
