I just tested my connection and download speeds and they are functioning at 2% of what they should be. I have a cable modem with windows vista. My connection speed is .8 Mbps and my download speed is 33kB/s. How can I optimize these speeds? I am connected via wireless to my network with a brand new laptop.
Thank you!

Dude honestly clearing your cookies or what ever isn't going to make a difference to your download speed... Even though ur connection is 10Mbs your not going to be downloading any were near that speed unless it just so happens the computer your downloading from is next door!

To put it plain, the further the cable is the more the signal degrades, and secondly your download speed is only capable of the upload speed which the computer on the other end is uploading the info to you at

ie. the upload speed from the other pc might only be 128kbs a second or 256kbs a second, and like i said before that signal from his computer to yours is being degraded bit by bit with each kilometer of phone line and cable. And they could be in australia or canada etc

Another thing is from what i know cable dsl is a shared line, which means its not a individual line from your house to the exchange building in your suburb. In other wards ppl around you are sharing the one cable so it could just be network congestion.. Do you usually find that your internet etc is slower around 6pm ish?

call up your isp and have them reset your port at the exchange, this will eliminate any excess static on the line which might be interfering and causing slower speeds, besides that you cannot defy physics my freind

good luck
