internet speed problems

internet speed problems

Best Answer zeroradius, 08 August 2013 - 04:23 PM

the modeam and router are combinded in one unit. Just got it yesterday.

 

I fixed it. I was looking through the settings of the card trying to find a model # and cam across "Speed & Duplex" I clicked it and it gave me 5 options:

  1. auto negotiate
  2. 10MBps full duplex
  3. 10MBps half Duplex
  4. 100 MBps full duplex
  5. 10MBps half Duplex

Wasn't sure what it would do but it looked promising, mine was set to auto, I selected 100MBps Full Duplex and ran a speed test and it is blazing (^_^)

 

Thanks for the help guys!

Hi all,

 

I  upgraded my internet yesterday to turbo (road runner). For some reason I am not getting the proper speed on my desktop. I should be getting around 20 MBps download and 2 MBps upload. On my laptop which uses a wireless connection I get the proper speed so it is not on Time Warner's end. On my desktop which is hard wired in I am only getting 9.37 MBps download but getting 2.27 MBps upload which is the correct upload speed but about half the download speed I should be getting. I have tried disabling my firewall and swapping the ethernet cable for onw that I know is rated for a much higher speed then what I should be getting but that did not help at all. Both machines are running windows 8 the desktop is using norton 360 but like i said i disabled the firewall on it and nothing happened. Switching the desktop to wireless is not an option.

 

Any Ideas?

 

Thanks

~Zero

What kind of network card does your desktop have? If it's only a 10mbps card, that would explain a lot.

I never really got into hardware but assuming I am looking at this right it is a Gigabit card. The name of the card is "Broadcom NetLink ™ Gigabit Ethernet" I assume that means it is rated 1GBps? if not how would i go about determining the speed rating? Drivers on the card are up to date.

Hows your setup ? Do you have a modem connected to a router ? which then connects to your desktop ? If so what medium is the modem being connected to and from. Or is it a combined modem/router.

 

And I looked up the titled of your card and this is what came up 

http://www.broadcom....rollers/BCM5789

Is that it ?

(>.<) it crapped out again. When I turned on my computer today I thought I would check it just to be sure and it is back down to 9.39MBps. I checked to make sure the speed/duplex settings had not reset, they are still set for 100MBps full duplex. Upload speed is still going fast. any other ideas?

Could you explain your physical set up from the main source all the way to your computer ?

hmmm getting 19 MBps today. I'm thinking the problem now may be that it is cable, I know the rates fluctuate based on how many people are on in the area, I just never thought it would cut it in half like that.  Thanks for the help.

If it would depend on the amount of people in the area downloading, your wireless speed should also be affected.
