Im using windows xp home edition Aol Ethernet (wired) DSL No security activated atm. i did a speed test at speedtest.net It says my isp is Carphone Warehouse broadband and that i am recieving 2.93 MB/s (carphone warehouse supports 3.6 and i support 6.8 with 8 meg) I did another test as a broadband site and it says im recieving just 1.3 download speed. My house can handle 6.8 i bought a 1 year contract for 8 megabytes and unlimited broadbande The most i recieve is 300kb/s (at night) and around (50 kb/s) I shoud be getting around 700 kb/s right? (i no the diffrence between kB/s and kb/s, [multiply kB/s by 0.125 to get your kb/s) Durning the day when most people is online the internet is barly usable on youtube and gaming with pings of around 200+ durning the night the intrnet downloads around 300kb/s with gaming ping of around 30~60 My router firewall is always deactivated to avoide confusion when using my xp firewall. ( i have read round some articles that AOL are the worst isp because of their scamms, like for instance: 1 year 8 megabyts contract with unlimited broadband. They give you 4 ish megabyts and their service dosn't agree with the contratc.) How can i resolv this issue or make it a little better?
