broadband speed

  1. I have Tiscali ASDL 512MBS

    Over the last 2 days the speed had slowed well down

    using the online speed checks I get the following:

    Direction Actual Speed True Speed (estimated)
    Downstream 466 Kbps (58.3 KB/sec) 503 Kbps (inc. overheads)
    Upstream 111 Kbps (13.9 KB/sec) 119 Kbps (inc. overheads)

    at one time the upstream was 33Kbs

    I have a wireless router/modem and the problem occurs on all 3 networked PCs.
    Is the problem with me or Tiscali?

    It is driving me nuts! :knock:

    The best way to find out might be to get out the old network cable, hook up a computer directly to the modem, and run a few online bandwidth tests.

    You can compare the results.

    If you feel the computer may be to blame, than try another computer in the same scenario.
