I've been with Infinity for about a year now (upto 38MB/s download, upto 9.5MB/s upload), and while I'm seeing near enough maximum download speeds as predicted the upload speeds are only about 1.5MB/s. That's using BT speedtest and speedtest.net. #
Now it didn't really bother me as I didn't upload much, but now I'm using remote connections and I'm curious why the upload is so bad? Can anyone hazzard a guess, offer any advice or find out why?
I saw a post recently where someone said that turning off WMI (Windows Management Interface) increased their upload speed from that kind of level to something quite respectable. I'm not sure if that was correct or a coincidence ~ I'm getting 17Mbps upload with WMI turned on so it certainly doesn't always kill performance, but you could try it. (under Computer Management, Services)
Thanks for the suggestion but if anything that actually seemed to slow the upload slightly (1.6MB/s to 1.4 MB/s). Also under Windows 8 it's Windows Managementv Instrumentation.
Anyone else got any ideas?
After moving the slider to your connection speed,if you don`t want to mess with advanced stuff,just tick the "Octimize" choice at the bottom,and let let it do it`s work.
It will backup your current reg settings then reboot the system,it works for me,but I use the advanced section.
Make sure that you pick your correct adapter in the pulldown menu,and tick the pppoe setting.
The pic is showing a really old version,in the latest version the slider goes a lot higher.
In the advanced section there are a lot of settings that can and do increase the performance of most internet connections.
I will post some pics of the settings that I use later,and my download is 75Mbps and upload 18-18.5Mbps consistantly.
Most people who use WIN7 think that it does not need any octimizing,I disagree.
The WIN REC figure in the pic looks really low to me,and that number is mainly what gives windows a chance to get up to date with modern BB speeds.
But like stated I will post some pics and details of my settings later.
