Re: SLOW SPEED ON XP PC BUT FULL SPEED ON W7 PC


[re: Tipper2772] [link to this post]
 
Thanks for all the help/suggestions ppl smile

Things seem to have taken an even stranger turn tonight...

Just out of curiosity I did another speed test tonight on the thinkbroadband page.. speed = 33mbps!! (1st time ever)

Checked with the thinkbroadband software I have on my pc speed = 16mbps roughly same as usual

Checked on the thinkbroadband website still = 33mbps?

Finally checked speed on speedtest.net = 11mbps??

Can anyone explain WTH is going on here? lol

Check speedtester.bt.com - the ADSL & FTTC Diagnostic, not the beta.

I seem to have the same issue. I just had FTTC installed so have moved from around 6meg to 37meg. Previously I didn't notice much difference in internet connection between my two laptops (Dell D400 running XP and HPG61 running 7) but now while the HP connects at full speed the Dell only manages half. Some of that I put down to a slow g wifi connection but even when wired to the router its slower than the HP.

It points to network issues!

As for te TBB meter, can you get the EXACT wording, which will be similar to:

tbbMeter last testfile result

You downloaded for 8.0seconds using 0 threads
The file downloaded at a rate of 1310.7KB/sec (10.486Mbps)
The amount downloaded was 10.5MB


Please make sure you use the correct upper and lower case letters too:

b - bits
B - Bytes
M - Mega

reading your line:
Software is thinkbroadband tbb meter "test = 10mb from multable threads = 7mbps D/L


actually says 10 milli bits at 7 millibits per second.

Now I I know that milli bits are not used and it should be Mega, then I also know the fiiel 10 10 MegaByets - so do I assume that you are (incorrectly) using b for Bytes in both case, which would means you achieved 7MB or 56Mb per second. Can you see how important use of b/B or m/M is?

Yeah.. sorry my mistake.. thanks for pointing that out

10 MB test

You downloaded for 10 seconds using 0 threads
the file downloaded at a rate of 1048.6KB/sec (8.389Mbps)
The amount downloaded was 10.5MB

Network issues? How can I resolve this?

The TBB speedtest and speedtest.net issues are almost certainly down to congestion somewhere in the network and only your ISP can help there. You have proved it is not your PC, cable, network card.

The TBBmeter test - that is an oddity that some seem to suffer from at times - there is a thread in TTTS about it. The figures I quoted were actuals from my PC - but immediately before, I was seeing ~37Mbps on BT, BT Beta, TBB Java and Flash, and speedtest.net, all were giving fairly close readings but the TBBmeter test is often way, way out for me.

If that is the case - why is my Windows 7 laptop giving me speeds of +30Mbps on all sites?
