Cool Getting Comcast cable modem tomorrow

Getting myself comcast cable modem tomorrow, can't wait for that. My brother in Nevada has it, and he says he can download files at over 300 KB/sec with it. I've heard of BuF'ers getting anywhere from 500-800 KB/sec with their cable modems. That is pretty sweet, it is much faster then DSL that is for sure! With my Verizon DSL I was getting about 80 KB/sec.

You can never have to fast of a internet connection. I think this is going to cost $1 for the first month, then $25 for the second and then $45 a month after that. So it is a pretty good deal.

Congratulations, dude. I love my cable internet and will never get rid of it. I'd get rid of my phone before I'd get rid of my cable internet.

well, I can't say anything for other areas, but I know that Comcast in Delaware (East Coast) sucks massive amounts of balls.

My download is officially 197.2 kb/s (according to dslreports) but you will never see those. I think the highest I have ever gotten is 120 (better than 56k, but makes you feel like crap when you talk to anyone else)

My upload is apparently 237 kbps, but I think comcast has a cutoff at 30 kb/s (I always get 30 kb/s no matter who it is I am connected to.)

And of course, my connection craps out very often (always when there is but one or two megabytes left in a download, or when I find a new online only game that I want to play).

So in short, it could be worse, but you will feel like a second-class citizen when you are online.

hmm, kinda off topic, but does anyone know what "Recieve Window" is? I was checking for ways to tweak my connection and dslreports reccomends changing my RWIN.

Use Dr TCP and set it to the upper end of whatever value the Tweak Test told you to.

Nali City appears down right now. Is that the CTF-Comcast map?
I tried that out of boredom a few weeks ago.
The pulsating textures sent my framerate all the way down to 10.

I get 60K downloads, and 30K uploads. Enough for me.

Got my cable, its super fast Only problem I had with it was during setup, it took forever, didnt run into any problems, it was just slow. But otherwise, this stuff is great, I need to test it on a real big download.

Cable does indeed own.

I'm on Cawks. Their service has been degrading lately, methinks, but I still download at at least 350k/s.
