I am currently receiving 2.9 Meg download using my Intel 82578DC Gigabit though my Local area network can receive a maximum of 100 Mbps. I am with a network service provider that can give me a maximum of 38 Mbps. Can anyone tell me what defines the maximum speed I can download at if I am receiving 38Mbps from my supplier though my Network connection driver is only allowing me to download at 2.9Mbps???:eek:

Welcome to TSG;Just to clarify.This is a Lan not wireless connection.And you are paying for 38 Mbps service. ?
May we see the results of a speed test ?
Is a router involved here ?
Have you ever received 38 Mbps ?
Is the speed the same if you boot up in safe mode with networking ?

May we see the results of:

ping yahoo.com

Like so:



Try these simple tests.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands one at a time, followed by the Enter key:




PING yahoo.com

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
Paste the results in a message here.

The maximum speed of the slowest link between the server and your computer.

I am using a LAN connected directly with Router. Current download speed 34.7Mb Upload speed 5.8 Mb and I am paying for this service. Speed id the same if I boot up in safe mode with Networking. I think there must be restrictions involved by the "service provider" I have now checked again using "Real Network Monitor program" and find that I am getting maximum of 4.7Mb/s Download and 918.8 Kb/s upload this could be all dependant on time of day!!!

How are you determining the "current download speed"? Are you checking this at a site like speedtest.net?

Your broadband service bill says you're paying for 34.7Mb/5.8Mb service?

Yes I am checking the speed using speedtester.bt.com and speedtest.net and the service I am paying for is up to 40Mb dependant on how far from the exchange you are, in my case 200metres. I am quite happy with what I am getting at the moment ,I was just curious to find out if there was anything I should be doing with my PC setup that can improve matters. Many thanks for all responses

If you're paying for a 40Mbps connection and you're getting 38Mbps, count yourself ridiculously lucky. That's a margin of error difference. You don't have any problem to solve there.

i would also support DoubleHelix post - I work on about 80%
so 40 ==> 80% = 32 anything above 32 would be OK - and i would not investigate
