Speed test

newbie5, May 24, 7:26am
I have just done mine.
averaging = DL.=1.66mbps. UL.=0.45mbps
Vodafone wireless
seems like dial up

It's significantly faster than dial up. But slower than you'd expect from a decent broadband connection. However it's wireless, can't expect too much.

DL = 25.0 Mb/s UL = 8.7 Mb/s
Snap UFB wired
seems a bit slow, should be closer to 30 : 10

It used to be faster with FF 2.7 now using FF 3.8 as mentioned in earlier thread.
Have done all usual /malware/av scan/cc cleaner/uninstall/reinstall/et-
now looking at upping ram but has been working fine for a couple of years Win 7 2gb ram

Go get "Palemoon"
Stripped down version of Firefox

Got all the common browsers on here for various reasons & theres a definite difference in speed between FF & Palemoon (latest versions)

Have you tried with a cable to see what the difference is?

This is the comp that the modem is connected to via cable. my laptop is connected via wireless and no probs.
The speed has dropped on pc as mentioned in previous thread only in the last couple of days since an update to FF 3.8 was fine before.

ALL network cables need to be a minimum of Cat5E
Any network switches (in your case) need to be 100mb capable.

might be time for a major overhaul

I see you are in Kapiti like me - I'm getting a super slow speed on and off and it has been like this since last Sunday night. We are on Vodafone cable and the speed comes back again (50 mpbs) around midnight and during the day it is good as well.

newbie5, May 24, 10:58am
Yeah but my laptop on wireless is fine its just the wired pc that has slowed down as you say since last week.
I think I might have installed something with the FF update but have tried uninstall and reinstall no luck done all the clean out checks still no luck
I am not on cable though as we dont have cable here
as mentioned might be time to chuck and upgrade.

it now appears others are having the same issues so it must be an isp issue.
It appears they have throttled back our speeds and still charge us the same

done that read the thread

reinstall your network drivers might help.
