This type of testing is like the "Quick brown fox ... " testing to measure upload (U to them) speed and the download (them to U) speed. The results are in line with slow DSL. DSL is digital over a phone wire, it faster than dail-up but not by much. 2 maybe 3x.
DSL does not use a large enough wire to have a broadband response, ergo, not as fast. When they talk about ping, think of sonar in water. Its a single pulse sent and echoed back from your pc to the website, via any modems, relays or hosts. This type of testing does not concern any error checking as is taken into account with the up/download measuring.
Cable, if available, is still the fastest for the cost. Only the T(x) lines are faster due to wire size and parallel feeds, very, very spendy and limited availablitity.
Hope that helped.

What is the ethernet speed of my computer?


This depends on your ISP service provider and the package you have.
Their max rating is never what you will achieve in the real world.
However you can get a good idea with this popular speedtest:
Speedtest net by Ookla The Global Broadband Speed Test

Your results will vary with each test. Many factors are involved to gauge the speed your connection can achieve. Number of hops, traffic, weather and of course your PC. Try not to have anything else running/down loading while doing this test. This will give you a better idea of the optimum download and upload speeds of your system and isp provided.
Good luck hope this helps!

This appears to be your computer problem rather than internet problem! If you are getting 15mb/sec that means there is nothing wrong with internet speed or the router. Also check speed on www.speedtest.net you can also do ping test on this site to make sure its not internet!

Internet Speed Prob


Because the speed also depends on how fast the site you download from is. For the www.speedtest.net and similar it's always almost at the maximum possible for your line because they are using very small packets of data and they send them as fast as they can.
When you download something the packets are much larger and your line can't get them faster. There are some download managers that are capable to trick your line into thinking there are multiple downloads at the same time when in reality there's only one - so you will get a faster download speed - but very few sites support them. In the end, even with one of them, if your line is slow you wouldn't get too much speed increase. 
Just try it and see.

How do I improve slow download time on HP pavilion elite m9040n PC richardsobesky@yahoo.com


Your download speed can be tested through your internet service provider. How you connect to the internet has allot to do with download speed. This is one of many links to test. If the problem is with your computer try using windows help and support and system tools. Larry

WHEN I GO TO WATCH SOMETHING ON LINE IT KEEPS FREEZING AND STUTTERING


The reason why this is happening is because the internet bandwidth may not be enough to stream the content at an acceptable speed. You can try to check if there is a lower bandwidth version of the clip but its unlikely.

If you are sure your internet connection can handle the video you are viewing, visit www.speedtest.net and run a internet speed test to determine your connection. Now compare this speed with the speed you are supposed to get for the price you pay. If this is way off, you may need to tweak your network connection slightly.

A site called DSL Reports has quite a few tools you can use to tweak your network connection.

If after using those tools you are still encountering a problem, you should contact your ISP and let them know you are having bandwidth problems.

Spybot ressolved


Great! Glad spybot is there now - and even more that everything seems to be A-OK! Do you feel comfortable with using it, and did you set up the Tea Timer so you can control what happens with your registry?

No, I didn't see another post. Sorry. I did, however, send you some more information on our last one, with images. If you go back to that one, you will see that I had to post the images separately, it didn't come through properly the first time. But this should help us make sure your Internet connection is set up properly...

Just to give us a gauge, as I am in the US and not sure where you are, I went to the oz speed test and ran it as well. Choosing from the Australian list, using the (15MB) OptusNet mirror, I got:
245.01 secs
512 kbps line speed (0.51 Mbps)
64 KB/s download speed (0.06 MB/s)
Using one a little closer to home - MadRooster.com, in FL:
49.92 secs
2.51 Mbps (2511 kbps)
314 KB/s (0.31 MB/s)
Using the test provided by my ISP (the internet service provider - in my case the phone company) my typical download speed is 4.5 Mbps and upload speed of 450Kbps. Just as a frame of reference, what I pay for is 6.0Mbps down and 768 Kbps up...

I think based on these results, we can draw certain conclusions, regarding the cause(s) of speed variances, aside from the dial-up vs. DSL controversy:
- The speed or level of service that you are subscribed to receive (what you signed up for and are likely paying for).
- Speed is going to be limited to what the server you are connecting to can serve up. In other words, you can't get it faster than they can give it.
- Location of the server can definitely make a difference - for instance, when the server is in Australia (half the world away from me) my speed is dramatically decreased.
- Completely out of our control is the number of users and their activity levels when we are trying to download, upload, or test.

So, as to the question of whether your speeds are OK or not, my opinion is that they are on the "majorly" slow side. If you take a look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ADSL, you will see that the standards for ADSL2 (which we don't have here yet) are 12.0 Mb/s down and either 1.0 or 3.5 Mb/s up. It could be just that the test was run from a server that had either severe limitations, or that it was quite far away, and the best test would probably be something available through the company providing your service. If you don't come close to the speeds you are supposed to achieve (and I am guessing you might have an issue there), then I would say the company you deal with needs to do something to correct the problem.

In regard to the first answer you were given on this particular question, (I went to your profile to look it up) I don't like to be critical of other experts, as everyone has their own opinions and experiences. However, in this case, I have to disagree with one thing, and that is that there IS a significant difference between dial-up and DSL. If one downloads at 5.4 Mbps, for example, as opposed to 54 kbps, the download speed would be exactly 1,024 times faster. This is a much bigger difference than 2 or 3, as was stated...

At any rate, I would say that you should check on what you are supposed to get, we'll keep working to make sure your settings are right (see the previous post), and we'll get you to the best we can! And with that, I am going to call it a night as it is past midnight here. Have a good day/night, and look forward to hearing from you again soon.

Thank you as always for using and rating FixYa!
