Can anyone help me in telling me why my new NTL Cable modem is only running at 100Mbps when it is advertised at 300K.

I have Ethernet card instead of USB - see posting on 19/10/2004.

Many thanks

Hi, I have the same system which now runs between 240 and 280 depending how busy the internet is.
Try running CyberTweak from click here.
It can make a difference sometimes.

Ants in the system? (No I'm not joking) sister had same problem. Turned out to be Junction box in road full of ants.

Get NTL out to check your connection to your house.

With what are you testing the speed?

I am getting the speed from the Status setting on my system properties for my LAN connection.

The speed says 100mbps.

thanks for the replies

It is a bit like the old dial up 56k is the best it will get but the truth is that most only connect at a slower speed about 44k, the same applies to broadband mine is a 512 connection at best but most likley less most of the time.do you have filters on all your other phone outlets, there are lots of things that can affect it. I don't know if you leave your pc on all the time but it may be worth while doing a clean boot to make sure everything is installed properly. All the best.

That is the speed of the network card and if you are getting 100mbps that is marvelous as compared to 300kbs

I'm on 300K and this what I get:

1st 128K took 3600 ms = 36409 Bytes/sec = approx 303 kbits/sec

2nd 128K took 3634 ms = 36068 Bytes/sec = approx 300 kbits/sec

3rd 128K took 3799 ms = 34502 Bytes/sec = approx 287 kbits/sec

4th 128K took 3536 ms = 37068 Bytes/sec = approx 308 kbits/sec

You're getting 100mbps shown because of the LAN it has nothing to do with NTLs 300k.

You are more than likely getting your 300K, do an online speed check.....to check.

The LAN in your case can work at speeds at 100Mbps.

Don't worry everything is A-OK!

If I check on status,like you I get 100Mbps.But average d/load is 34MBps x 8 =272Mbps.So it's about right.On the old 150Mbps it was average of 17MBps x 8 =136Mbps.
