    Default Cox ISP Speed

    I was just working with COX and decided to check the speeds I am getting. I get 60mbps download and 8mbps Upload. My package is estimated at 50mbps. Why should my upload speed be so terrible? I am using their test utility.
    You can see by my configuration there should NOT be a hardware drag.

    i am going to asume you are on windows
    if you look at all of the network traffic flowing through your connection you will see it is not what you are using
    but it is how you are being used

    if you have 2 movies loading to flashplayer in the back ground, and a MMORPG game playing, and try to run speedtest.net
    your speeds will be poor
    but those are the actual numbers the test achieved.
    reboot. turn on the firewall, let NOTHING connect to the internet, load 1 browser and run a full ping diagnostic
    your numbers will be amazingly better

    the point is this
    your PC is transmitting SO much data of you being a case study it is wasting your bandwidth like crazy. insane crazy extreme waste.

    now after you get a handle on ONLY letting data transmit that you want to transmit (firewall) i'll point to the prerequisits
    the first things to check are your connections, wire, OHMS, electromagnetic interference, over heating modems and routers, malware and virus cleaning, basic PC dynamic functional maintenance, and the list goes on

    this should never be over whelming
    this should be basic knowledge taught to all kindergarteners and practised every day by every person

    so,,,there are a few things to think about,,,and i wont even start into the scary stuff
    learning is good .....understanding is better .....pleas teach with wisdom............................................ ..............calemus

    I don't have movies, but I do have firewall/security programs running. My hardware is fine. I will shutoff everything but Microsoft Security Essentials even FireFox. If I don't like that result then I will Reboot Safe with Network.

    Tell me about the scary stuff.

    Hmm unless you have a dedicated Fiber connection, 8mbps is pretty good. Many DSL connections are lucky if they get 2mbps up. Typically, ISPs expect you to be doing a lot more downloading, while occasionally uploading. If you need to run a web/game server, then you're expected to have the dedicated fiber line with 25-50 mbps uploads.
