Sounds like you were attacked with adware/spyware. Try to look into downloading a free scanner from called adaware-se. Scan for the problems and delete them as they show. May need to scan a couple of times consecetively to be efficient. Strill need assistance after that, call the cable company and tell them to run a test on your line. You may be getting what is called "LINE NOISE" slowing your speed down. It's a quick adjustment to the outside line if you can get a Tech there. After that, if it still doesn't work, repost on here and I'll give you furter instructions.

Apple tech said to contact arris, modam not working/slow speed 2.0 mbps! help

hi Jim.
Check your modem speed
  1. Open up a web browser such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, etc.).
  2. Type* in the address bar, and hit Enter.
  3. Select Modem Status and locate the rate (downstream/download or upstream/upload). If you don't see Modem Status, troubleshoot as if your speed test is less than 100%.
  4. Compare your results to the Internet speed which you subscribe. If the modem speed test shows your speed is slower than the speed to which you subscribe, you can explore these articles for further troubleshooting:
  5. Note: Your speed can be affected by changes in network traffic and usage, which will usually vary across days and the time of day. To get the most accurate reading, run the speed test more than once, including different times of the day and different days of the week.

Firmware upgrade for Speedstream SS2602 wireless router, we have upgraded our internet access speed to 12/5 with COX Cable and we can only get 5.5/2.5 speed. When we hook directly to COX modem we get 23/5...

The information may be a bit misleading. What COX said about DOCSIS version is for cable modem standard. The higher the number the better the speed. However, it seems that the modem is already getting THAT speed. Some other device (perhap SS2602) is slowing it down.
It seems that SS2602's WAN side only support 10Mbps connection, which, in term, limit the speed to 10Mbps each way. The actual throughput may be even lower. Should that be the case a new router would be recommanded.

Hi, Can i chenge my up and down strm speed in Windows 7 for Arris cable modem?

No, unless you pay your Internet Service Provide more money per month to get higher speeds.

Doing so is probably a violation of the service-contract between you and your cable-modem-using Internet Service Provider.
