Those of you answering 54 or 100 Mbps are probably confusing the connection you have to your modem/router with the connection your modem/router has to the Internet.
I'm connected with 100 Mbps to my modem/router, but only with 4 Mbps to the Internet (512 kbps up). If I were connected wirelessly, the connection to my modem/router would be 54 Mbps but of course I'd still only download at ~400 kBps.
I've asked my provider to upgrade us to 8/1 months ago, but it's not happening... :mad:

I'm on dial-up, and the speed is usually around 46.6 kbps. I'm just bang up to date with technology, eh?

hey at one point this year apparently it was 14.82mb/s download. Shame it all ground to a halt recently because my connection was being shared needlessly with next doors!

jackles
13-09-09, 13:30
It was my actual internet company! To save time when installing the neighbours connection, they had just split my connection between next doors...and then suddenly I had virtually no connection at all. Very frustrating indeed. When they eventually came out after 12 days with constantly rebooting to try and get a connection, they decided that next doors weren't using it anyway and have disconnnected their side.

Mine isn't much better. I'll have to research the best provider and switch. Comcast is slower, despite popular belief. I know that for a fact since I've used it before. Verizon is all right, but I think the connection depends on what you use; I have a wireless router and it isn't the best in rain, cloudiness, and snow. I'd switch to a wired connection, but we don't need limitless wires running all throughout the household. I'd be tripping on them day and night.

I suppose I'll just have to endure it.

But Virgin throttle my speeds often because if I download more than 750MB between 4pm and 9pm, my speed gets throttled by 75% for 5 hours from when you go over the 750MB download limit which is very, very irritating. Especially for online gaming. 750MB is nothing! Oh and they also throttle it by 75% if I download more than 1500MB between 10am and 3pm, which again lasts for 5 hours. They're taking the ****.

For those of you boasting about your NIC speed being 100Mbps, mine is Gigabit ethernet. Win :ton:

As far as actual internet connection speed, I subscribe to 5 megabit per second, but for some reason my service provider has always given me 6 megabit per second. I can usually download from a good server at 650 KB/ps. They do offer me 10 megabit per second for just $5 per month extra on my bill, but I just haven't accepted it yet.

Man, I can't believe people are complaining about several megs per second! Some of you must stream radio and TV, download software, and play online games all at once! I've got reasonably priced Wireless. I pay for 1.5 megabits and it usually clocks out at 2 megabits or better -- probably because priority on the server is part of my package. That's plenty fast enough for my purposes. I can watch streaming movies and TV without any problems, even recklessly large pages load fast, and I can download fairly large pieces of software in a reasonable amount of time. Maybe I'm just spoiled. Before the wireless it was very poor service over ancient telephone lines that topped out at several kilobits per second and eventually deteriorated to nothing over the course of a few years.
