I would like to know if there is a way to hack my modem to force faster Internet speeds. We currently have a 6mbps connection and it takes an afternoon to download something that's 1 GB in size. :0

 

Plus my internet is so slow that Google Chrome thinks that websites take too long to respond.

Hi,

 

If your internet service provider is offering you 6 Mbps your are suppose to get 6 Mbps... I have never heard about hacking a connection speed of a service provider but regardless that would be against the law. I would assume that you have adware/malware on your computer if its (slow) to load basic pages.

 

Thanks.

No because you are limited by your ISP's download cap and mostly limited by the upload speed of the node you're downloading from. However, using programs like bittorrent can help increase download times of files because it comes from multiple node resources.

try a SpeedTest and make sure you are getting what you pay for,

 

Also post the results of a tracert yahoo.com from a command prompt, please.

I'm getting close to what I'm paying for. (Let me rephrase that: "we're")

 

And using a torrent doesn't really increase my download speed.

The first 6 hops is your ISP's network which looks excellent for DSL & after that it hits Yahoo's servers which shows higher latency and * possible packet losses.

Seems wrong to see private ip 192.205.33.46 in a tracert.  Seeing more of this with isps these days.  What that means is you are being lied to concerning you getting a public ip.  The 151x, 12x's.. those are lies.  The 12x is AT$T but then you are being redirected to Stockholm [telia.net]

Something funky is going on with your routing.

 

You using a vpn service?

No, I am not using a VPN service. And I'm not surprised that AT&T is doing this. I am also receiving frequent dropouts to my Internet, and I have a separate topic for this here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/581025/frequent-internet-dropouts/

The online whois ip lookup resolves to AT&T owning the netblock 192.205.0.0 - 192.205.255.255 and CIDR /16. I can tracert to 192.205.33.46 but it drops because they aren't responding to those requests. This is the signs of ipv4 running out of addresses and with ipv6 not being fully deployed everywhere.
