sorry, its late at night and im tired. I made a couple of stupid mistakes

1Mbps (megabit per second) is the same as 1000 kbps (kilobits per second)

since 1 byte = 8 bits

you take 1000 kbps and divide by 8 which is a tad higher than 100KBps (kilobytes per second)

my comcast said im should be getting 16mb/s but im really getting 17.5mb~ more or less.

my cousin's sbc jumps from 120kb/s to 300kb/s when hes downloading stuff.

btw the way most networks are wired is by block. so if your neighbor has the same service he could be eating up a lot of your speed.

Isn't there a chance that the router he is using is limiting the amount of bandwith to each pc to a max of 80-90%? My router does when im downloading alot on one PC, limits it to 2MBps.

I have a WRT54G. My PC is wired and the others are wireless. I get the same results when I'm just hooked up to the modem though.

I'm still just a little confused on why my download speed is around 850kbs on some speed tests..

I went to speedtest.net and it came up that I was almost getting 1mbps so that one seems about right. I think I'm just getting confused because I don't know much about reading internet speeds.
