I just ran a speed test on Verizon Broadband test site. The results of the details are here:
Checking for Middleboxes . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Done
SendBufferSize set to 
running 10s outbound test (client to server) . . . . . 124.84Kb/s
running 10s inbound test (server to client) . . . . . . 95.53kb/s
------ Client System Details ------
OS data: Name = Windows 7, Architecture = x86, Version = 6.1
Java data: Vendor = Sun Microsystems Inc., Version = 1.6.0_14
------ Web100 Detailed Analysis ------
Client Receive Window detected at 17408 bytes.
Cable modem/DSL/T1 link found.
Link set to Full Duplex mode
No network congestion discovered.
Good network cable(s) found
Normal duplex operation found.
Web100 reports the Round trip time = 998.03 msec; the Packet size = 1452 Bytes; and
There were 1 packets retransmitted, 14 duplicate acks received, and 30 SACK blocks received
The connection was idle 0 seconds (0%) of the time
This connection is receiver limited 12.61% of the time.
Increasing the the client's receive buffer (17.0 KB) will improve performance
This connection is sender limited 45.17% of the time.
This connection is network limited 42.22% of the time.
Excessive packet loss is impacting your performance, check the auto-negotiate function on your local PC and network switch
Web100 reports TCP negotiated the optional Performance Settings to:
RFC 2018 Selective Acknowledgment: ON
RFC 896 Nagle Algorithm: ON
RFC 3168 Explicit Congestion Notification: OFF
RFC 1323 Time Stamping: OFF
RFC 1323 Window Scaling: ON
Information: Network Middlebox is modifying MSS variable
Server IP addresses are preserved End-to-End
Information: Network Address Translation (NAT) box is modifying the Client's IP address
Server says [126.96.36.199] but Client says [192.168.0.198]
One line concerns me the most. It says "Excessive packet loss is impacting your performance, check the auto-negotiate function on your local PC and network switch"
I'm not sure what this means and how to correct it. I'm currently running Windows 7 Home Premium on both laptops. The USB 760 is connected to a Cradlepoint MBR900 and an external indoor antenna. I'm getting speeds of around .14 download and .07 upload. A trouble ticket was issued and to make a long story short I was told I needed a Network Extender. Too pricey for me. This speed sucks and unfortunately there are no other providers in this are. I'm about 7 miles from the nearest cell tower. So, will fixing "Excessive packet loss is impacting your performance, check the auto-negotiate function on your local PC and network switch" this help any and anyone have any other ideas.
