I'm having problems with my adelphia cable modem. I've had it for about 3 months and know what it can do. But about two weeks ago everything has been slowed way down to a crawl. I'll start a download and it will begin at 60k a sec and by the time its done its going at about 5k a sec this is the same everywhere with large sites like 3dfx and microsoft. I cant think of anything wrong with my comp, I've tried all the tweaks. I think its the isp, but I called them and they pinged me at 11 and said it was al good, I know something is wrong. any ideas??

There's prolly too many people on ur node. All u really can do is complain until the speeds come back to where they should be.

I dont really think its people on my node because its all hours. Not peek, and I've tried it all the time. My speeds jump all over the place, I would expect steady slow speeds if more people were on it.

Maybe ur ISP's backbone isn't what it should be for the number of customers they have.

Two weeks ago is when the viruses hit hard. Put up a firewall on high settings and look at your logs. I bet you're getting an ICMP request from a new source every couple of seconds. Does the data light on your modem just about go solid when your speed comes to a crawl?

If these ping attacks are what's causing your slowdown get used to it, there's not a whole lot you can do.

I think if he hadn't gotten his problem fixed in 3 years, then there's no hope for him ;)
