I have downloaded from a good number of different sites to test speeds from a variety of different servers/locations and have not seen a huge difference - almost all were 90-100KB/sec except for a few that were slower and a few that were faster - the fastest I have seen has been 150KB/sec but this was only once.
I have a Westell WireSpeed DSL modem, a Belkin 4-port wired router and my desktop computer. I dont really need the router after selling my laptop but I kept it as an extra layer of protection. The slow 50-100KB/sec speed happen both when running through the router and also without the router(going direct from modem to ethernet card).
Here are some other specs for my system
**Intel® Pentium® 4 CPU 3.40GHz, 3.4 GHz
**1024 MB RAM
**Linksys LNE100TX(v5) Fast Ethernet Adapter - Packet Scheduler Miniport
**Intel® 82801FR SATA AHCI Controller
Can someone help me troubleshoot this situation ?
I probably only be online for another 90 minutes or so tonight and then back online Sunday am Oct 16 (EDT)
thanks very much
