poop... something else I didnt think about . Benchmarks... sry. I meant just average joe-website, or torrent download speed. Heck I can clock mine @ 6.3mbps down and 2.5mbps up all day long, but it's not really what I am getting.

Vanilla 1.5Mbit DSL line,.. had the DSL "elite" 6Mbit but I don't need the speed... or want to pay the extra $$ for it ...:)

On a side note the ISP I work for provides a "standard" connection of 15.0 Mbits down 2.0 up or you can get the 30.0 down 5 up for an extra $10 bucks a month... too bad I'm not in the company's service area :(

hey gcninja are you sharing your connection with anyone ?? If your NOT ( and you're wired & not downloading anything) check for packet loss on your connection... same thing happened to me about a year ago ..took 3 techs to find out it was a faulty card in the UBR at the CO.

haha thats gotta suck, also h3% how is it i get better up but a shitty down?

and dr0p whats powerboost?

Well, that has alot to do with what the IP wants you to have at your disposal. They are probably on a plan with their trunk provider to get x up for $ and x down for $ and so they give a little more up to justify the price of the down. *because unless you run a server, it's obvious that you would not use near the ammount of down*

well, i was at the moment i think with one maybe another computer and yes, this is a wired one, its from me to my DD-WRT to my router.. where i live ive heard a rumor and still unsure, since im in the middle of no where our communications, which is what DSL uses (landline) all goes through a satellite (or multiple) dish(es) so it could be that. let me run it one more time this late

hre you are

Powerboost is where they uncap your download speed for the first 0-10 seconds of a download so if you're downloading a small file it finishes almost instantly. Of course during peak times this isn't available but it's still nice to have late at night ^_^
