    How is my setup and configuration?

    Hello there Speedguide team.

    Returning overseas subscriber back again.

    I like to firstly say that I am happy that you can cater for everyone around the world, not just US based.

    Here is the progress/story

    I have just upgraded my cable connection once again, and I thought I would check up on here to see if my setup and configuration is all good for what I am getting.

    I was previously on 17Mb/256Kb, then I upgraded to 38Mb/1.2Mb and now I have upgraded to 120Mb/2.4Mb.

    All has been good throughout my whole speed upgrades and getting 90% of advertised speed. But of course with cable it's different then adsl.

    1. What is your advertised internet speed ?
    120Mb downstream and 2.4Mb upstream (120/2.4)

    2. What actual transfer speed do you get?
    Doing a speed test from speedtest.net I get on average around 110Mb/2.4Mb. Downloading from a major site I get around 13Mb. And torrenting I average around 3-7Mb.

    3. Who is your Internet Provider (ISP), and what type of connection do you have ?
    Telstra Bigpond and Cable.

    4. What are your current settings ?
    I have transferred my old cablenut setting over from my old 38Mb/1.2Mb connection.

    5. Your modem/router/ap brand ?
    My ISP has supplied me with a Cisco EPC3925 Modem/router. I bridged it (crap modem/router) and connected up my own router, a Netgear WNDR3700v2.

    6. Your Operating System ?


    I have Windows 7, 64bit (primary) and Windows XP 32bit. (secondary)
    So what do you think?

    Is my setup and configuration all good or do you think there is more room for improvement?

    And if you would need/like any more information, let me know and I will supply it for you.

    Regards,

    Luca.

    Looks good to me, thanks for the thorough information

    You can try some of the Advanced settings and playing with ToS/QoS, however, if you're already getting close to the advertised speed and are happy with the connection it may be a mute point.

    I wish I could get a 120Mbps residential broadband in our neck of the woods.

    If you are running Windows 7 don't bother.

    I will do that.

    I usually hit 116 most of the time when downloading locally, so that is 90+%.

    In 4 years time (if the same government gets re-elected) I will be seeing Fibre Optic 1Gb/400Mb.
