hi guys i have a problem with my internet connection speed. i'm using charter's 5M internet package and before when I ran speed tests on the web, I consistently got a speed around 4M. I'm using a Linksys basic router. So yesterday I tried to setup my bittorrent downloading program and was fooling around with my connection settings. I changed my TCP/IP settings so I could get a static IP. Also, I set up port forwarding on my router so I could bump up the speed of the downloading program. I left my computer on overnight to download stuff and this morning when I woke up, I found out that my internet connection has died, so I revert all the settings back to original, and also unplug-plug the power of my router. Internet started working again but I found the speed to be relatively slow. So I ran the speed test and found out that my connection speed is only at tops 1.5M and varies. I checked all the settings, and they were same as before i made the changes. I also tried connecting straight to the cable modem and still got the same connection speed, so the problem is not with my router. my laptop also detects the same slowed-down connection speed. I called Charter and they said the signal is showing 5M. So I'm guessing the problem is either the cable modem or the settings on my computers?
