Is there any way to increase upload speed on a Cable internet connection?

My friend runs some servers on his box, but I'm only getting 16-ish KB/sec downloading from him.

What does his service provider say is his maximum upload speed?
Your speed will be limited by this. My service provider can provide a maximum 3Mb down and 800Kb Up.
My true speed is around 2.2Mb down and 300Kb up.(from an on-line speed test)

If I look at the speed you provided, it looks like you are getting around 16KB. If you convert that to bits.(most service providers give their speed in bits to make the # look bigger) it translates to 128Kb.

16KB x 8 = Kb value.

There are tweaks that can optimize your IP settings, but I don't know if you would see any noticeable difference with this issue.

Hope that helps.

Have both of you tested your connections? It may be a choke point on one of your computers. How are you connecting. Some cable ISPs block certain ports. Try using a different port on his connection. Also his AV maybe slowing him down if it is scanning everything he is sending.

I told my friend to look at this page.

Both of us use Adelphia Cable Internet, and DSL Reports says I have around 430Kbps upload and about 1 Mbps download. Adelphia says I should get 3Mbps download, so I don't trust them at all (I forgot what they said upload should be).

My friend also says that another one of his friends gets a steady 20KB/sec from him, so the problem might be with me, though I don't know what it could be.

From the Toast.net website:

Your connection speed may vary from host to host for any of the following reasons: Path your ISP takes to the host, server capacity, Internet traffic, your hardware or OS, neighborhood (cable users). Finding the host that gives you the best results is a good measurement of how fast your Internet connection is.


It appears that Toast.net is headquartered in Ohio (but who knows where their server is?) - which is a god distance from Colorado.
Here's the Colorado speed test sites from DSL Reports ( http://www.dslreports.com/stest?more=1 )

My upload and download speeds actually got worse, not just from the colorado ones, but everywhere. I should have 1.5 Mbps dl, but I only got about 350Kbps. I think this calls for discussion with Adelphia...

FROM THE WEB:


Disabling QoS to Free Up 20% of Bandwidth
This tip made the rounds with people believing that Microsoft always allocates 20% of your bandwidth for Windows Update. According to the instructions, you were supposed to disable QoS in order to free up bandwidth. Unfortunately this tip was not only wrong, but disabling QoS will cause problems with applications that rely on it, like some streaming media or VoIP applications. Rather than taking my word for it, you can read the official Microsoft response: "There have been claims in various published technical articles and newsgroup postings that Windows XP always reserves 20 percent of the available bandwidth for QoS. These claims are incorrect... One hundred percent of the network bandwidth is available to be shared by all programs unless a program specifically requests priority bandwidth."
