      Exclamation now here's a weird connection speed issue...

      Hi folks,

      I'm on Max and have been since October (although you'd never have known it, my connection felt like it was stuck on 2MBPS) and only recently (ie. in the past week) have I seen my connection improve but it's not as you might think.

      The best speed I've had out of my Max connection has been 2.16MB/S (!!!) however I only seem to get that speed when I'm downloading multiple large files/streams at once, whenever I download something by itself the best constant speed I get is 320KB/S.

      Now, I can see that my connection is capable of 2MB/S+ and when I download a bunch of big files/streams at once from the same location I get the full use of the bandwidth, I see absolutely no reason why it shouldn't give me 2MB/S on a single solitary download.

      Has anybody else experienced anything like this? It boggles the mind.


      Cheers,
      Robert

      Run TCPOptimizer (see second sticky in my signature) and see if this improves things. Also, is this wireless or wired?
