Call me spoiled but I don't seem to get more than 16 to 20 megabits per second on my epbfi.

You could be maxing out your *spit* NAT device and/or firewall. And in reality, any testing beyond their speed test is testing the connection beyond your simple port speed. And unless you are paying for a "Professional" circuit, which is more like $350/mo than $59.99/mo, it's a best effort circuit anyway.

=============================================================== From: Ralph Edge ------------------------------------------------------ I've had no problem getting the speeds I'm supposed to get from my place in Hixson. Used to be 30 but they upgraded to 50. -Ralph

=============================================================== From: Stephen Haywood ------------------------------------------------------ I had trouble with my wireless device slowing me down. I could get full speed when using ethernet or when downstairs on the wireless. Would get half that when upstairs. Father-in-law had a similar problem and bought a new wireless-N router, which fixed it. -- Stephen Haywood Information Security Consultant CISSP, GSEC, OSCP T: @averagesecguy W: averagesecurityguy.info

=============================================================== From: Dave Brockman ------------------------------------------------------ -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 I'll take a cable over wireless any day. Devil's in the details, and wireless physical transmission medium sucks.

=============================================================== From: James Nylen ------------------------------------------------------ Even with the "coming internet of things"? I can't tell you how many times I've heard that phrase lately.

=============================================================== From: Dave Brockman ------------------------------------------------------ -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 Odd, that's the first time I've encountered that phrase. Sounds like whoever is spouting that needs an education in what the Internet really is... a whole bunch of networks connected together. Including the one that particular person in question is using. There is no "coming Internet of things", the Internet is already here, and busting at it's original constraints. Enough obfuscation already.

=============================================================== From: James Nylen ------------------------------------------------------ s/heard/read on Arse Technica or similar sites/ Anyway the reason I mention that is because I plan on getting some wireless chips and leaving some Arduinos around the house that can talk to the desktop. I think wireless is good for applications like that.

=============================================================== From: Dave Brockman ------------------------------------------------------ -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 Anything stateless is usually fine. Don't get me wrong, there are several wireless devices in the house. It streams, I do light remote work with it, but if I'm moving any serious data, or something sensitive to disconnects or packet loss, I go upstairs to the desktop. I see lots of other things being connected to *my* network, but I'm not carte blanche letting anything and everything talk to the rest of the world. I can't wait for the first refrigerator hack.... :) Regards, dtb -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.17 (MingW32) Comment: Using GnuPG with Thunderbird - http://www.enigmail.net/ iQEcBAEBAgAGBQJRExCyAAoJEMP+wtEOVbcdyekH/1eDvlKO28pZbRcMV4Hrf/5Y bnALBJK/4m+wimyBQHicg9OP5YAPbaycGU1o+l2IfDT+QwYJoeFFl2+9vm2LDood 0BE9T6VinvE/nv1QFqRI3oVTzNXyWvOVaCS2XgiI+Xy8Zq6/XIL9UIoQ8mCAo+8R rd9FndwzU/Id6iovnmejqC5RItAp4KbYR2QOrf58B4O59CLQhUzyi4GQ67PBQniP aIr2V+IBQPN1maM0GtYMEHufmKjqBaOQVr2QKxmofIrM2VZPCfzEq7GRWlalg5uY BSMxtazLBW/ODWos2LdhaehwlpuZ6GvmFh7GapOD+6SE5obuy4W7HEbu2nVp128= =J5hT -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
