Windows 7: upload speed low

upload speed low

I didnt have this problem before i was wondering what are the things that can cause this.
I had comcast over my house this morning and on his laptop he was getting 2.5 upload while at mine was at .5 and he was blaming that. As the night before it was up to par, I called them because i would notice my games chopping up due to internet and letting me know that my internet connection was poor. So i was wondering what are some of the things that can cause this.

I scanned for spyway with malwarebytes nothing. I scanned my pc with nod32 found 2 or 3 things cleared them still getting the same speeds, I unplugged all ethernets and reset both modem and router.

Computer is hooked up Wired, and he also did the testing on his laptop wired.

I notice there are two drivers available for win 7x64 for your network controller. Have you tried both of them?

There are two , one appears to be a zero hour release, the other a couple of months later. They appear to be for the same device.

I suggest you first run a line speed test and post the result. Then we go from there.

I just ran mine and that is what I get for a DSL3000

I am actually on comcast myself. So here's some better results to aim at.


I have never gotten better than a 250 kbps upload on this line though. Cable is all download, it's not really made for uploading.
So far as download though... that's actually one of the worst results I've ever gotten.

right now everything seems to be fine compared to this morning, almost seems like the comcast man did it just so he wouldnt have to do any extra work.



here is what im getting now





i was getting .5 this morning, something last week happened which changed a lot of things. I was getting 58 down and 3.5 up, but whatever that went away, my internet just sometimes is not consistent, as for instance when i said when i game.

That is intersting. I have a neighbor who had exactly the same problem with internet service on cable. The speed varied widely depending on time of day or day of the week. He finally switched to ATT - it is maybe not as fast but it is steady.

My beef with comcast is limited to the tv service. I have heard a lot of nightmare stories but my internet has been very consistent for the 8 or so years I've been with them. It's their policy with tv's and those stupid set top boxes that has me ready to kill someone.
