Great! Glad spybot is there now - and even more that everything seems to be A-OK! Do you feel comfortable with using it, and did you set up the Tea Timer so you can control what happens with your registry?

\015\012No, I didn't see another post. Sorry. I did, however, send you some more information on our last one, with images. If you go back to that one, you will see that I had to post the images separately, it didn't come through properly the first time. But this should help us make sure your Internet connection is set up properly...

\015\012Just to give us a gauge, as I am in the US and not sure where you are, I went to the oz speed test and ran it as well. Choosing from the Australian list, using the (15MB) OptusNet mirror, I got:
\015\012 245.01 secs
\015\012 512 kbps line speed (0.51 Mbps)
\015\012 64 KB/s download speed (0.06 MB/s)
\015\012Using one a little closer to home - MadRooster.com, in FL:
\015\012 49.92 secs
\015\012 2.51 Mbps (2511 kbps)
\015\012 314 KB/s (0.31 MB/s)
\015\012Using the test provided by my ISP (the internet service provider - in my case the phone company) my typical download speed is 4.5 Mbps and upload speed of 450Kbps. Just as a frame of reference, what I pay for is 6.0Mbps down and 768 Kbps up...
\015\012
\015\012I think based on these results, we can draw certain conclusions, regarding the cause(s) of speed variances, aside from the dial-up vs. DSL controversy:
\015\012- The speed or level of service that you are subscribed to receive (what you signed up for and are likely paying for).
\015\012- Speed is going to be limited to what the server you are connecting to can serve up. In other words, you can't get it faster than they can give it.
\015\012- Location of the server can definitely make a difference - for instance, when the server is in Australia (half the world away from me) my speed is dramatically decreased.
\015\012- Completely out of our control is the number of users and their activity levels when we are trying to download, upload, or test.
\015\012
\015\012So, as to the question of whether your speeds are OK or not, my opinion is that they are on the "majorly" slow side. If you take a look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ADSL, you will see that the standards for ADSL2 (which we don't have here yet) are 12.0 Mb/s down and either 1.0 or 3.5 Mb/s up. It could be just that the test was run from a server that had either severe limitations, or that it was quite far away, and the best test would probably be something available through the company providing your service. If you don't come close to the speeds you are supposed to achieve (and I am guessing you might have an issue there), then I would say the company you deal with needs to do something to correct the problem.
\015\012
\015\012In regard to the first answer you were given on this particular question, (I went to your profile to look it up) I don't like to be critical of other experts, as everyone has their own opinions and experiences. However, in this case, I have to disagree with one thing, and that is that there IS a significant difference between dial-up and DSL. If one downloads at 5.4 Mbps, for example, as opposed to 54 kbps, the download speed would be exactly 1,024 times faster. This is a much bigger difference than 2 or 3, as was stated...
\015\012
\015\012At any rate, I would say that you should check on what you are supposed to get, we'll keep working to make sure your settings are right (see the previous post), and we'll get you to the best we can! And with that, I am going to call it a night as it is past midnight here. Have a good day/night, and look forward to hearing from you again soon.
