    Connection Speed

    I thought this might be interesting since we have such a varied group of members.

    Have any of you ever tested your download/upload speed? I was having horrible connection problems lately, and then I fixed them. My connection speed jumped from this:

    I won't go into detail about how I managed the difference, but I thought it was pretty interesting the difference in performance you can get from the same hardware if you know what you are doing.

    Not bad for only paying $24.99 a month. Although it will get bumped up to $49.99 in October.

    for you guys with Comcast, check the speed at a number of different times of day. I get crazy speeds late at night or early in the day, but it slows considerably from 6 p.m. to about 10 p.m.

    Comcast will slow down because you share bandwidth with people around you

    Oh, but I can. I just don't do it that often.

    It more useful for downloading stuff anyways. Especially games I buy off of Steam.

    This is my wireless connection at home, it doesn't seem to bad. I play on a hardwired connection that I'm assuming must be faster.

    Yea, that's nice. I live in the sticks, so getting 16/0.75 is pretty awesome around here.
