Hi Folks, I've just connected my new Creative broadband blaster modem via ethernet cable to my Vista computer. Previous to this I was using a Speedtouch usb modem. With the old modem i was getting daytime download speeds of 250kbs-500kbs. This is with an up to 8 meg line. After 11 p.m i was getting speeds of between 2000kps to 60000kbs with the Speedtouch. Now with the new Creative router i'm getting a stable speed of 950kbs download speeds all day. How do I get this speed up to nearer the 8 meg with this new router? I'm assuming its not my telephone lines fault as i was getting up to 6 meg at night with the old modem! Any help much appreciated.
I have search the Internet not too much on the Creative broadband modem that could help
Also Creative has stop selling broadband modems & only selling a wireless adapter
Sorry I could not be any more help on you problem but a stable speed of 950kbs download speeds all day is more than most people get even at 3am. At present where I am if I get 150-250kbs during the day I am happy

Some may say the price is high and you could get equipment a lot cheaper, I agree but do you want to be buying modems, routers, hubs, switches, etc every year, or equipment that sit in the corner and works.
Never had any problems with 3Com or D-Link it just work and I have installed them in countries that have some very bad broadband line.
Thanks for all the advice ambra4, I think I'll end up buying a new router but this Creative one will have to do temporarily. I've stayed away from wireless routers up till now as I only have a single computer at home.Plus I wanted to use ethernet connections rather that usb to save on resources. Having said that I think the evolution in tech development may force my hand in to going wireless eventually! Thanks again ambra4.
