Max speed of 15/2 Mbps on 25/2 conneciton, could it be equipment? - Page 2

Small update.

Tried using wire connection and same 20 Mbps result on my laptop. Can't try the hookup on the desktop, but I'd assume i'd get 20 because it's wired. It seems that maybe the b/g adapter is limiting me to 15, but equipment or my connection is limiting to 20 as of now. Going to call cox in just a second.

If you live in a busy area, try a wired connection sometime around midnight when people are not using the internet. Otherwise the internet in your area might be overloaded and you might not be getting the full speed that you pay for.

Which site are you using to test your internet speed?

Just called Cox to reset and I got an improvement! I now get 21 instead of 20... so I don't think that was the problem.

I'll try wired late at night and see what comes up.

For tests, I'm using speedtest.net and testmy.net. In addition, I've downloaded large media files that also confirm my limited speed as well.

Anyone at this point think it's the modem? Trying the process of elimination, and the thing is 5-6 years old I believe. Rep knew almost little or nothing about modems/networking, but confirmed I'm running a DOCSIS 2.0 modem (she asked me to google it because her data page wasn't working).

Thoughts? Can anyone confirm for me that b/g connections typically have a limitation of 15 Mbps as someone mentioned above?

Nope... on speedtest.net and testmy.net. And when downloading files it hits 2.3 megs a second, which is roughly 20/21 mbps.

thats throughput. The road beyond your ISPs gateway cannot be guaranteed by them.
