Okay I have Windows XP Pro SP3. I am using apache to create the server portion. I have done a speedtest and I get 17mb Down and 5mb up I paid a good bit for that. When trying to download files from the server on any network ( I have tried 3 all cable) it starts really fast around 200Kb and quickly goes down to 60Kb. I have checked apache and they do no limit the upload speed to my knowledge. I have done a speedtest so I don't think it is the linksys Wireless-N router. The server is hard wired and I have the QOS at full blast on that port. Is windows XP Pro limiting the speed?

by default xp limits your speeds to 80% of what you're really getting. it reserves 20% of your bandwidth for windows updates. you have to enable the setting and set it to 0% for it to not reserve this...here's how to change it.

Start>Run and type gpedit.msc without quotes. This will open the group policy editor, then go to the following by step:

1. Local Computer Policy
2. Computer Configuration
3. Administrative Templates
4. Network
5. QOS Packet Scheduler
6. Limit Reservable Bandwidth
7. Double click on Limit Reservable bandwidth

set this to enable and change the value from 20 to 0 click of.

then go to start>run type "gpupdate /force" you may have to reboot or log off for the changes to happen.

hope that helps your some.

it may very well be an apache problem. You may want to look more into that...i dont know much about apache though.

Yes I have done this and I didn't see much of an improvement. I haven't been able to locate any information on how or if apache is in fact causing the upload to stop at 60.

your isp is probably throttling your upload speeds, which is very common if they detect you are running a web server from your home. you can try a module for apache called mod throttle, it may help.

I just spoke w/ a friend of mine who is savvy w/ apache.

depending on how much you are paying for service, you may want to talk to your ISP about getting a small business account instead. That would stop the throttling (if that is what they are doing). It may be more beneficial to you to spend the few extra $$ if you are running a business out of your home. Good Luck!
