Okay, I'm a grad student at Sul Ross University. About three weeks the school installed a bandwidth limiter to slow down peer to peer, but not hurt http surfing.
Software company http://www.cymphonix.com/index.php
However my internet (http) surfing is dead. Speedtest.net results prior to install 5,000-6,000 kb/s and now I get 120 kb/s. IT has tweeked the software and opened the pipe up, but still nothing here. Others in our building have complaind, however thier internet is just slower then normal, but not really that bad.
Mine - takes 20-40 seconds to load a page.
After two weeks of calling IT, having them here in my apartment, cleaning my machine, reseting the port, switching my Cat5 cable, and even trying switching to FireFox...my internet connection is the same (insert $%&@). Our IT has reset the cymphoonix system and nothing.
Here is the kicker. Other ports in our building work wonderful. (Brand New building if important) Outside laptops can be hooked up in my room and speed test result 2100 kb/s and better. ?!?!?! W.T.F.???
Here is the other kicker! We hooked my wife's laptop up and it ran great too.
Another Kicker!! (Last One!) When I went home for Spring Break I took my computer. We have Cox cable at home. My computer ran perfectly and had speed tests of 5,000+ kb/s.
I don't know anything about computers, but I've been fighting this mess for several weeks now so now not only do I know every IT personally but I feel like I'm having to learn about networking so I can find my own solution.
