Help somebody?
I have a 19mb connection speed using adsl2+, but can only d/l
at apx 200k.
Even multiple d/l's they still sit at 200k.
I have run tcp optimizer, gone through all the tests with internode support.

Im starting to struggle.

I should be between 1.5 - 2mb d/load speeds at least

I really don't think you are getting 19mb. Is 19mbs the maximum speed or the actual speed you get?

well I am, and my ISP confirms it.
19.6mb line speed (to my modem), on a 20mb max speed connection.

are you able to help me, or did you just want to state your opinion?

Well IMHO, some ISP's may throttle Torrent and ED2K downloads during certian times to maximise fair bnetwork utilisaiton. I'm not saying your ISP does this, it's just my experience.

Righto....
Have swapped my Dlink 604-T for a mates 504-T and the result is positive...

604-T - connected @ 19.203mb, but downloading @ up to 400kb consistently
504-T - connected @ 19.207mb, and downloading @ 1.7mb steady, spiking to 2.4mb

Will leave this set up for the remainder of the week as a trial, so far am pleased.

Only one problem....the 504-T isnt wireless

have had constant 2.3mb d'load speeds for a week now....quick as.
have now swapped back to the 604-T, using it wirelessly, and speed has dropped massively to 380 - 420kb d/load.
( using same 100mb mirror file )
connect to 604-T using ethernet and speed back up at over 2mb......
clearly its the wireless router not the modem.

can anyone suggest a fix/idea/red herring?
im using tcp optimizer but so far i disbelieve it helps.
might try updating wireless driver

Yeah your issue will most likley be the wireless can not keep up.

factory reset the router and changing wireless channel may help.

Hi,

I am on Internode on the TWOPLUS with LineSpeed is 20mbit, I am pulling through wireless 1.77mb/s from the Internode mirror. Which is always a good indication of line speed (given international links tend to flail alot). If you have done a modem swap and the speed restored, its a fair bet the wireless adapter is causing your loss of throughput. Given that you swapped the modem and the speed restored.

Questions:
1. The new modem, are you connected WIRELESSLY or via ETHERNET (cabled)?

2. The old wireless modem, was this to a laptop or a desktop?

3. Did you update the Firmware on both the modem & desktop/laptop PC?
If NO - Swap back to the old equipment and run the updates.
If YES - And your still getting poor performance, contact the supplier.

4. Was anyone else on the same connection experiencing the same slow throughput?
If NO - This isolates it to just YOUR machine
If YES - This isolates it to the modem.

Hope this helps?

if i was you i would just buy the same modem again.
im thinking that the modem itself is not working at its full potential most likely broken from day one.

had the same modem at my cousins house and i notice the same problem as you, bought a new one and speeds picked up pretty dam quick on iinet get a d/l speed at around 2.7MB a sec, thats on the iinet adsl2+ plans.

OK. well I would update firmware on the modem first of all. Change your wireless channel on the router.. use channels 1, 6, or 11 as they DO NOT overlap each other. Try using channel 1 as not many people use this channel I have found, experiment a bit. I have found certain channels have interference on them that can come from household appliances, etc etc, I wont go into detail. If that fails, then get a decent modem, I have found billion modems work a treat!! Also you could go with a modem-bridge config.. I use an OPEN Networks modem bridged into a Linksys WRT54GL running Tomato firmware 1.25 and mine runs torrents at 1.2MB/s. There are tweaks in utorrent to help encrypt your data too.
