Why is my internet so slow?
OK, well I just upgraded from high speed light to high speed at home because I had little need for it before. I would just use the schools wireless, or a friends wireless with my laptop.
I am seeing a very little difference in speed when it should be a huge difference. I am supposed to get "up to 5000kb/s" but everyone else that has the same service provider and internet plan as me gets about 4000kb/s. Right now I am only getting ~980kb/s. It is a cable modem. And I mainly use wireless (802.11g with WAP encryption), but when I plugged my laptop into the router, it is the same speed. So any ideas what's wrong, could it be a bad cable connection from the wall to the modem? A bad Ethernet cable from the modem to the router? Or could it be a router setting?
Just thought I would get your thoughts before doing anything.
