Satellite download speed not constant...

Hi!

I have the following problem.

I installed satellite internet connection (one way of course) but my download rate is not constant.
Download starts with 300 - 800 Kb/sec (depend on the server and traffic) but after 10-15 seconds slow down to 130-140 KB/sec (which is still good but...)

I would blame my ISP for this but my friend without SP1 and SP2 installed, with same internet connection (Same ISP, satellite link) have almost 1.5 Mb/sec.

Is there a problem with WIN XP SP2 or SP1.
I really don't want to surf and download with XP and no SP installed :)

Does anyone have a solution for this one :)

Thanks!

Is it possible that your satellite dish is not aligned correctly, blowing in the wind, has something getting in the way of the signal... tree limbs etc ?  Are you receiving the same strength of signal your friend is receiving?

It could also be your upstream lines are nowhere near as good as your friends, since you are on dialup, anything going "upstream" from your connection, web requests, spyware, etc will drastically slow your downstream.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Satellite dish is aligned correctly, I am getting 70 % signal strenght (my friend is on 56%).

But you may be right about dialup, my friend is on ISDN. I,ll try installing external modem on his PC and then we will see if that is the reason...

I would bet that is the reason... limited upstream caps the downstream

I am sorry but the reason wasn't my modem. I reinstalled my DVB drivers, Create connection, and everything works fine now. Anyway, you earn the points (you are the only one who was responding) :)
