just a tip for you guys with highspeed internet

about once per month I shut off my high speed modem
and my wireless router for about 3-5 minutes then
turn the modem back on and once reset and
reconnected I then turn on the router and let that resync.

you would be surprised at how much quicker your connection
will be.

That is usually associated with the Hopfield neural data correction algorithm used in older modems (even if you bought it yesterday) on DSL, cable & satellite systems. It trains itself to correct expected errors on the line and after a while it starts to inference too much and gets slow. I just got in a new AT&T Uverse and it has 6 mbps internet channel capacity as well as 300 TV channels. I was lucky to be 200 feet from a light speed fiber box. This system rocks!

200ft:cool: lucky stiff you are getting everything you paid for and MORE,
im about 17k:;:) from mine basically the very edge for DSL service
and when it slows WAAAAAYY down i know its time to reset but before i do i always do a line test just to see how bad it has gotten.

the other day i was down to 90-100kb per down when im usually right around 1MB

i could get faster with cable but i just flat out refuse to pay $50 per month especially since i dont do large downloads

I have to reboot my router once in awhile, but my cable modem is solid as a rock.

Here's my speed. If I test using the recommended server it's a bit less than using the Chicago server.

i can only dream of those speeds, worse part is when my brother comes over and uses my system for something he does this:tease: and :lol:
at my connection speed.

Cable is good as long as there aren't too many local subscribers, then the bandwidth goes down. But Comcast is a robber baron over in this neck of the woods. By putting all the service in AT&T's lap I went from 60 TV channels to 300, VOIP for the house phone and 6 Mbps internet I saved $95.00/month and it gives you WIFI and recording up to four TV channels. The installation went smooth, but setting it up was a nightmare. Uverse is a marketing arm and the the order entry system didn't know how to deal with my legacy DSL twisted pair. Eventually (after a lot of noise) they turned me over to tech support and it was installed in three days.
