Well as my topic says I have a question that refers to my router. So the story is, about a year ago we got a wireless connection promised with 11 Mb/s but in reality we were getting around 130 kb/s. So actually just today we just got Qwest's internet service and in our plan we were promised 1.5 Mb/s, whereas when just going to the modem's IP addy it lists 1,519 Kbps instead of listing 1,536 kb/s which we should be getting in our plan. So I called Technical Support and all I got out of them was checking for some devices or objects that may be interfering with our connection or check a possible firewall and so forth. Well I asked them if the router itself may be capping my bandwidth and they just told me to check with some other company.
So my question is, with my wireless modem connection with Qwest, what may be the possible reasons that I'm not recieving the connection that I signed up for, could it be the Router itself? Or can someone please help me find out the reason behind this. Thanks!
