100 MBIT Speed Increase


[link to this post]
 
Has anyone one else noticed the speed has increased? The superhub is now connecting at 11000000 bps. I am getting 1 MB a second more than before, not bad!

That this was going to happen is well known about, and is to ensure VM can market at 100 Mbps, ie. cunning plan to ensure the 10% will get the speed we market at.

Heaven forbid that any provider will ensure that anyone's line being tested for this condition would be given favourable treatment.

Yea getting slightly higher here for the time of day..

http://speedtest.net/result/1657420113.png

Though this is tested through triple firewalls and active av,i usually get slightly higher later on at night and with security disabled..


Could anyone with a couple of min to spare,could they give me a quick explanation why firewalls and av security slow your connection down slightly ?..

is it the real time file system protection on my av suite ?

i am using eset smart security suite 5.

cheers guys smile

Three software firewalls are going to conflict with each other. Router + Windows Firewall = job done.

That really depends on how you have the firewalls configured tbh..

i have windows firewall + router firewall and eset firewall.. i have tested them all with various configs and rules applied and i feel i have a set up now with no conflict at all.

it also helps to bump up the averages on the samknows tests. As uncongested lines running higher than 100mbit will mask results from congested lines to a degree.

Give http://wokhan.online.fr/progs.php?sec=WFN a go if you feel you need control over outbound connections.

nice app will try it.

currently am using using windows 7 firewall control, which itself is somewhat buggy. Works in the same way a front end for the built in windows firewall.
