There are some things you need to do if you are on cable modem!

FIRST OF ALL MAKE SURE YOU ARE GETTING WHAT YOU ARE PAYING FOR:

GO TO: http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/ OR http://www.bandwidthplace.com/

For example if you have 3 meg download your test should show close to 3000 and your upload speed should be around 325 if not call your Internet service provider.

1. At a dos prompt run a ping test, type in: ping www.tgtel.com There should be only one space between ping and www. There should not be any packet loss. You can ping others
to like ping www.yahoo.com If there is packet loss call your Internet provider. You have
a line problem.

2. Do a tracert, type in: tracert www.tgtel.com it should not time out. If it does call your
Internet provider.

3. Are you using the SBG900? If so it has been discontinued. Have you got the new
SBG901? If not this is why your Internet keeps going off and back on at random.
Call your Internet service provider.

4. Test your modem security at https://www.grc.com/x/ne.dll... If it didn't pass you
are in trouble. You need the modem replaced by the SBG901 or equivalent.

5. Does your Outlook Express or Windows Mail hang? It is a server problem
that needs to be corrected. Call your service provider.

Stay tuned for more!

Anyone above the third grade know's how to do all of this. Good job wasting your time typing this.

How about you explain how to chip the limiter off the box out back and make it 25mbs? eh?

A lot of people call me about this. I used to work for a MSN Help Desk and done computer work for 15 years. A lot of people don't know these tests. You can't control your speed by trying to hack your modem. It doesn't matter what you do, its the server that determines your speed. Of course you can make a in line coil to speed up your Internet, but anyone above the third grade knows how to make a cable coil. Why don't you enlighten us how.

Why would you wan't 25mbps when on TVS you can only get ten? That's all they are allowed to give if you want to waste 80.00 per month.

How many of you have the old SBG900 modem? It has been discontinued. Have you gotten a new one yet?
If not this is why you are having problems with connectivity.(Internet going off and coming back on at random)
Check your modem firewall for hacker leaks, go to https://www.grc.com/x/ne.dll ... and run a test. If you have the SBG901 it will return PASSED if not you're in trouble. If a single packet solicited or otherwise was received from your system as a result of a security probing tests. Your system/modem failed miserably. You are visible on the net, and hackers like me can see everything on your computer. It's simple really.

Thanks for the free info. My test showed a download speed of 5.71Mbps and an upload speed of 0.49Mbps. My cable modem is SB5101. I am paying for the 6 meg package. Thanks once again.

He's not talking about your modem that you chip the block off of. It's your box outside that connect's to the pole. It limit's your banwith. Remove it carefully and you'll be doing great. Just dont get caught.

I know that. He's talking about the speed regulator. Its like the regulator on your cars alternator, take it off and you just might burn something up. If you want to crash and burn simply make a bypass jumper cable. Make sure you ground it as much as possible.

You will see high speed one minute and barely surfing the next.
Your speed is controled at the server level on newer systems. So
unless you have a very old box outside it won't help.

The type of modem you have doesn't really have anything to do with the security of your network and I will prove that. I have the Motorola Surfboard 5101 Cable Modem. My Router is a Linksys WRT-54G with the latest firmware installed. My I.P. address is 68.64.116.67 and I have a secure shell daemon running on port 2022 on my desktop machine which runs Xubuntu Linux and has the internal I.P. 192.168.1.100 assigned to it. Mr. Computer Tech guy, you have my permission to attempt to penetrate my network and post proof of it on this thread if your are able to do so.

By the way the box on your pole does not regulate your speed. Your speed is set in the server by a .cfg file...

Only way you can change that is if you hack your modem and change the cfg file, also called uncapping.

I wouldn't recommend doing it though, serious fines, jail time.
