I am doing this for myin-laws, who live in a semi-rural area. They have Verizon DSL, and have been having very slow connection speeds for the past few months (they have the 1.5-3 Mbps, and are getting between 200-700 kpbs. Sometimes, for a few seconds, it can get as high as 1.1 Mbps, but it never gets to 1.5.
I have tried lots of things. We got a new modem, reset the D-Link router to factory settings, plugged the modem directly into the desktop, rebooted everything, then rebooted again, called Verizon and talked with their overseas people, who said they would have someone look at it.
Everything, no dice. So I'm not sure what to do.
Here's one thing I noticed, however. When I go into the Modem sign in screen, and look at it (It's the Red sign in, not the Blue, on a Westell 6000 DSL modem), they get a very high "Speed (down/up)" level. Something like 1740 down, and 500-something up.
But the actual downloads are nothing like that.
Is that significant to anything?
My other situation is that I am not at their computer now (I am back in the city). When I left their place, I did not know about these boards, and I can't remember any of the other information that is from the modem sign-in. That one piece, however, seemed strange to me (a high "Speed (down/up)" level, but slow reality.
As you think about it, could that lead to any clues or solutions I should look for the next time I go up there?
Thanks for reading this.
