What's port forwarding got to do with his download speeds?

What speed are you currently getting from your isp ?

This will help you find out,it is estimated click here

Depending what your package is,there is a high speed driver availble for your modem,but we need to know your isp package.

ok i tried test, its telling me my d/l is 938kbs and my upload is 210kbs, ping210kbs.
I usually get about 80kbs when im downloading for real. Im with Orange and think im right in saying its a 2meg basic package (was Wanadoo)
I hope this helps
