I have just upgrade from 7mbps to 12mbps.

on the 12mbps what should I get when i do a speed test. I get around 10.37mbps download speed and upload speed is 0.83mbps is that close enough to 12mbps or is something a little better then that. I know I won't get the full 12mbps but is 10.37mbps close enough. to which I should see in a test I use the speedtest.net site.

Thanks. I also got build in wi-fi in the dsl modem and a build in firewall as well. I also put the modem and the router in to sheath mode and i went to www.grc.com and do a ShieldsUP test and all ports are in sheath mode so the dsl modem router. and the firmware is up to date.


now I got faster I hope I don't get a knock at the door from the police going to fast on the information super highway lol....

I don't recommend DSL. I think you should look for something faster. I just ran speedtest.net here, I'm supposed to get 100mbps:

That's close enough, it may be higher or lower at different times or under different conditions. Scott.

For some reason now I am getting higher speed then i should be now upgrade to 12mbps

I know my last few post the speed was a bit slow but for some reason now it is fast

see the test i did one from speedtest and one from centurylink. I don't know why i am getting higher speed now then i did before. it has a built in wireless router too and i am using that on a roku stick cut the cable cord works great really fast for streaming tv and movies to my tv set.

so what are you thoughts about the speeds from this post to the older post i posted on here.

thanks.
