Help..

I just cant figure this one out.I have verizon fios and am suposed to get 15 mpbs download and 5 mbps upload speed.

But I am getting 2mbps download speed and about 18 mbps upload speeds on my desktop pc.The verizon guy came here and said the router configuration was correct and so was the ethernet cable.He plugged the cable to his laptop and was getting download speeds of about 30mbps so something is wrong with my computer only but I cant figure what.

I removed mcafee as I read it could be a problem.Now I have microsoft security suite but it did not help.I have removed Ipv6 too but that has not helped either.

Thanks appreciate your help.

PS: OS is windows vista

Hi -

What/ how are you measuring upload & download speed?

Are all Windows Updates installed including Vista SP1 & SP2?

Are your networking drivers updated - wifi and Ethernet?

Test Internet speed in SAFEMODE w/ Networking - tap F8 key repeatedly during bootup.

SpeedTest --> http://www.speedtest.net/

Then test normal Windows Boot.

Regards. . .

weird though!
with that upload speed you can host multiple sites. :)

guess its still ISP concerns, it may have something to do with burst speed like what we have in the office. Speed will go up only when needed.

just a thought.
