Hello. I'm so frustrated with problem I'm having.

This is machine spec
Win XP SP3
XFX nForce 680i LT SLI Motherboard
InsightBB (ISP, cable)
I don't think any other info would matter

The problem I'm having is download speed is extremely slow, speedtest.net says download speed is 100 kb/s and upload speed 950 kb/s, where download speed SHOULD be 8500 kb/s. It appears that it's only affecting this machine (other machine not affected). I have been having this for 3 days now.

Steps I tried to do was: I tried to power off, power on modem and computer. I tried to replace cord. I tried to use SFC /scannow and "error-checking". I tried to re-install motherboard driver. Nothing has fixed that. I tried several Tech Support, they thinks that I have spywares and downloaders. I checked with AVG and Spybot:SD, they both says no result. I think I may have removed ".exe" file from start-up, I may have been confused thinking it's a spyware or malware file.

Edit: Moved topic from XP to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

I would suspect that maybe AVG and or Spybot are checking all incoming traffic. That would slow it down tremendously.

Well...that website you quoted...looks like an ad to me.

I'd be more tempted to trust results from http://www.dslreports.com/speedtest?flash=1 , a web site that is not trying to sell me something.

I'm somewhat curious as to how you arrived at your expected download speed.

Ok, from dslreports.com

Download speed: 363 kb/s
Upload speed: 596 kb/s


What you mean by "how you arrive at your expected result" ? I have checked speedtest.net result before I started having this download problem, also I can see other machine downloading just fine, showing 8500 kb/s as download speed from speedtest.net but the other machine does not belong to me. I want to use this machine, I want to fix download speed.

For some strange reason.. i was digging thru files to backup before reformat computer.. I noticed program I might try giving a shot was TCP Optimizer, I saw scroller was on "3000 kb/s" speed, I scrolled it up to 20,000 and then reboot computer. It somehow fixed, I don't know why computer decided to go less speed.

CLOSE please.
