You guys are lucky man, I live in a tech driven city and i dont get even near that high. I'm using the jack on my MOBO and not an dedicated card, think that would help that much?

60 Mb/s Down / 3Mb/s Up - 250GB Monthly - Cable: DOCSIS 3.0. My ISP offer service up to 200Mb/s Down / 30Mb/s Up...
Sometimes it's a bit faster, (seen close to 70Mb\s down) never slower. ^^

Nhaa not really, but a good router can make a hell of a huge difference. Its wise to go Gigabit if your modem support it, but not really "necessary" otherwise.
To know if a router is good you gotta know the real specs of it (CPU, RAM..).. which aren't on the box.
A good place to start: http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Supported_Devices..
And if sadly you are on ADSL, stay away from those modem/router combo that most ISP supply. They are the worsts.
Put it in modem mode, and get a decent router... at least.. Or get a stand-alone modem if you can.
BTW my tests where done on a T5550 @ 1.83GHz Laptop.. no Gigabit, nothing fancy.. But my network, different story.. not far from overkill. ;)

Also.. get your line checked (from the post to your home)... and slip the technician a few buck.. he'll probably be happy to replace it and make sure you got the best of it. :D

I think that i will make a new "Show us your network" thread soon :)
Right after i get my new PC, and redo all my computer room. :lol:

Before anyone can really help you, you should mention what kind of speeds you're expecting to get. If you're paying for 15mbit down/2mbit up (or slower), then you're already getting exactly what you should be getting. If it's supposed to be substantially faster, then as Xphazer said, your ethernet jack shouldn't be the bottleneck but your modem and/or router could be, although if either are provided by your ISP, then they should be fast enough to handle whatever speed you ordered.

oh really? And these crappy thing handle torrenting, multi-threaded download and other stuff like that very well ?? from the top of their 100Mhz.. LOL...
Speed is not always the only mater.... Speed and handeling thoulsen of connections is not the same... but the same machine manage it..
So basically, torrenting, gamming and other harcore stuff like that will be bottlenecked by those crappy thing that ISP supply.

I completely agree with you (I've been running DD-WRT routers for a long time now), but since we're talking about speed tests, I was only referring to speed and whether or not he was getting the correct speed.

10 dollars nzd a month :-)

when we were out on the farm i had to force my modem to 28.8kbps using an init string which gave us a 2.5k download and 2k upload it is much better now than it was.

P.J. I'd do as Xphazer suggested and get the linesman to check the string and clean the tin cans of any rust. :lol:
