LAN-Jacked

Super-angry
Hi all.I have an internet speed of 10Mbs on LAN.I average about 2-5Kbs.Sometimes more.I have seen it as high as 180.I know that there are restrictions on this network,but i think that i should be getting faster downloads than my current speed(0-3Kb).Can i stabalize this or is there nothing i can do?Please help.I am so frustrated i could strangle somebody. I think that some one on this public network is manipulating bandwidth.Can I lock in a speed manually when I get a decent speed?

If the connection isn't yours, then there's not a lot you can do about "controlling" speed. If the owner has decided to throttle client's bandwidth, then you'd have to talk to the owner. How many other people have access to this connection and what type of connection is it, and, more importantly, how much bandwidth does the connection have?

Do you get better speeds on other public networks? That you've seen up to 180 KB/s suggest you're able to get better speed, but that's still relatively slow.

Click Start and in the search box type, msconfig and press Enter.
Now click the Startup tab, click Disable All, Apply and OK> Restart.

Then run speedtest to check for any improvements.

Reply appreciated

I'm at a hotel.CAT-5 Ethernet.Supposed to be 10Mbs.I just started with computers so I don't a lot about connections.First one I've ever been connected to. 20-30 connections is a wild guess.Netork discovery is turned off. I'll turn off startup and get back to you.

Hi Bludgard, Is this 10Mbps line of yours a dedicated 10Mbps line for your use? or are you sharing it with everyone in the hotel?

Thats what i thought... I suspect your problems are down to something called contention, basically you are fighting everyone in the hotel for that 10Mbps connection, depending how many people there are in the hotel then these speeds can get very low, (as you have seen) the fact that your speed varies (as you said you can get 180Kbps at times) would seem to confirm this. If this is the case, im sorry to tell you there really isnt alot you can do except try and get on when its quiet

here is a link from my ISP explaining Contention in a little more detail: http://usertools.plus.net/tutorials/id/11 you can ignore most of it as it is about the way that Internet over the phone line works in the UK but the bits about "fighting for bandwidth" are relevant to you
