    Well basically I have a question concerning internet speeds. I have ADSL 512kb/s, but I always upload stuff at 6kb/s tops. Well I dunno if this is normal (I am very noob at computers and stuff) so just wondering if this would be the correct upload speed. It's slow as hell though.

    Thanks.

    That test sucks, I just tried it. It says my upload is speed is 39 kbps lol
    Why the max I can get is 6 kbps then?

    Umm, it does not sound very normal at all...

    i suggest clearing your history and coookies and running a decent registry cleaner

    not entirly sure if it will help but go with that. also get an internet speed up like cFosSpeed.

    I hope you mean MEGA BIT
    Your download speed should be your speed (512kbit per second) divided by 8. Your upload speed should be half of that.
    Your download speed can depend entirely on where the server is, if they've capped your download speed and if you're doing anything speed-consuming at the same time.

    well thats odd...I dont know...maybe you should talk to your internet provider and ask them how your server is doing and ask them if its a possibility that its your modem.

    Me..

    i got 2772 kb/s download
    and 347 kb/s upload

    which i think is kinda low for cable :\

    :0 my download went way down but my upload that went up from 30 to 347, but my download was 7940 kb/s :(

    oh well...umm idk

    unless you have Hdsl, the speed will eb slower.

    if you have hDSL upload and downlaod are the same speed.

    You also have to consider Latency. This is the delay of your system (computer) and the other computer that your trying to connect to, move packets to one another. If you have a slow system the higher the latency. Which means your computer has to have a fast hard drive, no spyware, no viruses, etc... This slows down your computer more to connect to the net.

    Latency: Latency in a packet-switched network is measured either one-way (the time from the source sending a packet to the destination receiving it), or round-trip (the one-way latency from source to destination plus the one-way latency from the destination back to the source). Round-trip latency is more often quoted, because it can be measured from a single point. Note that round trip latency excludes the amount of time that a destination system spends processing the packet. Many software platforms provide a service called ping that can be used to measure round-trip latency. Ping performs no packet processing; it merely sends a response back when it receives a packet (i.e. performs a no-op), thus it is a relatively accurate way of measuring latency.

    Where precision is important, one-way latency for a link can be more strictly defined as the time from the start of packet transmission to the start of packet reception. The time from the start of packet reception to the end of packet reception is measured separately and called "transmission delay". This definition of latency is independent of the link's throughput and the size of the packet, and is the absolute minimum delay possible with that link.

    However, in a non-trivial network, a typical packet will be forwarded over many links via many gateways, each of which will not begin to forward the packet until it has been completely received. In such a network, the minimal latency is the sum of the minimum latency of each link, plus the transmission delay of each link except the final one, plus the forwarding latency of each gateway.

    Architect is right. I said this in another thread as well. You have to divide your speed by 8 to get the real speed that you download/upload at.

    So now I know for sure that my upload speed is fuxored up.
    512kb / 8 = 64 (download speed, this one is correct)
    64 / 2 = 32 (upload speed... was supposed to be 32 and its 6, wtf O_O)

    maybe your connection is limited to 512/64.
    what country?
    what provider?
