3Mbps is no longer - mere 1.5 or much lower! : (
Posted on 2004-08-12
Using a Linksys befsr41 router and an RCA modem.
When I first signed on with them - I swear I was pulling down 3 - 3.4 Mbps!
But lately, I'm lucky to get 1.2 - 1.4...
Had an issue with a "visitor" (we'll leave it at that) and removed all the havoc that he generously introduced. But I'm not certain that it started then - or if it's Comcast's issue...
They say "no.
So, I've cleaned all virii/spyware (use Ad-aware, spybot, xcleaner & hjt). Have run online scans at trend, panda, and symantec.
Have Norton installed with the latest defs (Aug 11).
Have run a registry cleaner (forget which one) and reset ip stack/winsock.
XP Pro SP1 (although SP2 is sitting there smiling at me...)
Can anyone offer anything further to try? I want to be certain it's not my system (without rebuilding).
I'll start this at 125, but if anything is recommended that eliminates my problem - I'll gladly max it out at 500!
