I had FIOS internet installed 1 month ago. I currently have a windows XP and a windows vista CPU on a home network. When I originally ran speed test after the install I was getting very close to 20/5 speeds on both CPU's. Now I get 1.5/3 speeds on the XP CPU and 20/5 on my vista machine. I am confused as to why the XP machine has dropped off so terribly.
As of today 10-5-08 on my XP machine
FiOS Internet Speed
package is up to 20/5
What can I be doing or checking to fix this?
Well I've ran Connection Wizard. It says my connection is working however when I click "fix my internet connection" it hangs up at "connecting to router" and then displays a graphic indicating that I need to plug in cable to router. The router is connected to my PC and I am able to access the internet.
I updated my Intel Pro network card drivers yesterday with no effect, I've ran TCP Optimizer with no effect and restored default settings on router with no effect on speed tests. Still showing less than 3k downloads and k uploads on a 20/5 service.
Switch the network adapters between computers if you can, then retest. When the hardware starts to go bad on your network adapter, it often switches to lower operating speeds during it's death throes. Try switching cables too.
