    Im curious to see what others are getting as far as Adelphia speeds go. I am currently at about 1100/256 and this is at about 1am in the morning. Also, is anyone else having traceroute problems? Im using a Motorola SB4100.
    I know adelphia claims 3000/256, but 1100/256 kind of misses the target .......

    I'm not getting 3000/256, that's for sure! What are you pinging off of? Are you running that game server off of that connection? I know Adelphia blocks Port 80 but I wonder if I could get away with running IIS or Apache of another port if I keep the traffic low.

    I run my game server and all my other servers from a dedicated Linux box I lease in Florida.
    I know they do block port 80, but you can basically use any port going into your router and then forward that port to port 80 on your web server. You just have to make sure when you type in your URL for the webpage that you put the :portnumberhere i.e. http://www.atyourhome.com:5000 if you forward port 5000 to your internal port of 80 . I do have a linux box at home that I can remotely administer using port 8080, but its not really like a webserver nor is it available publicly since I password protect it.

    I just checked DSLReports.COM .. there are some people out of the chvlva.adelphia.net domain getting >3000 down and ~250 up ... I've not seen anything close to that fast, but it could be the software firewall I'm running.

    Well, tonight things seem closer to normal. I'm getting 2075 download and 240 upload. I haven't seen speeds like this in a couple of weeks. Anyone else seeing an improvement?

    Hmmmm, Im going to have to check again and see. Maybe its the configuration they uploaded to my modem that could be wrong.

    It's still good this afternoon. 2015 download / 241 upload. Something must have changed because I was getting about half than for downloads earlier this week (and the week before).

    I saw that too, but its not in our zip code. I think the you'll find the same in other zip codes too where they have much much better download speeds than ours

    Your download speed : 2232103 bps, or 2179 kbps.
    A 272.4 KB/sec transfer rate.
    Your upload speed : 212901 bps, or 207 kbps.


    My upstream might be a bit slow because I have QoS shaping on my upstream for my VOIP (finally dumped Verizon!! and got Broadvoice and I'm loving it -- $9.95 a month for unlimited in-state.).

    Aside from yesterday's outage, Adelphia has been pretty stable... Now if only they lowered their rates!

    I thought I'd resurrect this topic. Adelphia speeds are way down again. Clocked this at 5:30 pm:

    2004-06-15 17:35:14 EST: 155 / 82
    Your download speed : 159460 bps, or 155 kbps.
    A 19.4 KB/sec transfer rate.
    Your upload speed : 84768 bps, or 82 kbps.

    Maybe all that water they were spewing out of the fire hydrants for hours and hours today on Truro Parish flooded out all the cable wiring as well as everything else in the way.

    Yikes, and I just put in an order today for Adelphia after resisting for so long. All the good news of the speeds made me give in and supliment my current IDSL. I have no plans of getting rid of the IDSL since Adelphia won't let me run any mail or web servers but at 155/82 kbps it's not any better than my (very solid) 128/128 kbps connection.

    There's been a slight improvement..the cables must be drying out.

    All clear on my end:

    Ping statistics for 216.109.118.69:
    Packets: Sent = 35, Received = 35, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
    Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
    Minimum = 19ms, Maximum = 29ms, Average = 20ms

    hmmm... Just got mine today and I'm getting...

    2004-06-24 17:30:30 EST: 621 / 238
    Your download speed : 636143 bps, or 621 kbps.
    A 77.6 KB/sec transfer rate.
    Your upload speed : 244136 bps, or 238 kbps.

    Not what I was expecting but it's faster (not better) than IDSL.

    I tried mine this morning and im getting 218/1836 which is about average for this area I think.
    Pictor, you may have to tweak some of your windows settings, most notably your registry. MTU size seems to make the biggest difference for me. I think you'll see a noticeable difference. Here is a link where I found the info and what to do to edit my registry and it defintely worked for me w/no problems. Be careful not to make any mistake when you edit your windows registry....it could get ugly...[8D]

    Let us know if that has helped you.
