Oh, okay. So it is Megs per second, but not Bytes. Ooops.

You want to see something cool do this.

Click start

Click run

type cmd

click enter

A black box opens up.

type tracert www.firearmstalk.com

Then watch the magic happen.

What this is telling you is each and every router that your packets go threw to get back and forth from here to your home computer.

I use this tool when I am war driving to really fook with people. I will find unsecured wireless network and log on to it and run this get the ip to their router and access it and change all the security settings.

Truthfully, I have no idea what any of this stuff does, what it's for, or why I need it.

I just use my laptop (hp dv6000,windows vista, AMD 64x2,wi-fi) with the fastest speed I can get from cox communications. Things go pretty fast, so I'm good. lol....

21 down 3 up.... so it says. I believe the Comcast prioritizes packets to certain sites like this one. In reality I can sustain about 1 meg a second down = to 8 megabits as advertised by ISP's.

I also have wireless and leave it wide open. Anyone wants to use it, I'm happy to let them, although I do have wireless administration disabled to stop people like Cpttango. But my wireless signal doesn't really reach much past the outside walls of my house and it won't work outside my property (.25 acres) so I figure anyone close enough to get a signal is someone I have allowed in my home for the most part.

Also I use speedtest.net cause they make cool graphics

9,513 kbps download and 13,633 kbps upload

Where does that stand in the order of things?

That's cool!
I got 361kb download and 94kb upload. I don't know if it good or bad except my upload speed it much slower so I might need to upgrade the desktop computer.

Those numbers are more than sufficient for anyone who doesn't have a specific need for more bandwidth. It's unusual that you have more upload than download but not a good or bad thing since I assume you don't host any web servers. Think of it like this, you have a sports car with a top speed of 9,500, but traffic flow on average won't let you get above 1,000-2,000 on a regular basis.

I doubt its your desktop causing the slowdown. My guess by those speeds is that your on DSL. Having a much lower upload speed is normal and is nothing to worry about for most web browsers. You download all the information and picutres on a webpage with a simple small request which is the upload(the text in your browser bar tells your internet provider what web site you are looking for). It's not that simple but you get the idea.

Just for reference, I am a heavy computer user, I have downloaded 127 gigs in the last 2 months and uploaded 21 gigs. And I guarantee I upload as a percentage of total usage more than most on this board.
