    test your bandwidth and post your results...

    i've got cable in NY

    730 kilobits per second

    Communications - 730 kilobits per second
    Storage - 89.1 kilobytes per second
    1MB file download - 11.5 seconds
    Subjective rating - Good


    anyone ever heard of or read about windows XP and 2K using 20% of your bandwidth? is this true?

    I jump up and down because I'm on a non dedicated line, i.e., cable rather than dsl but I still run consistently faster than pretty much everything else.

    For the record, I'm also not hardwired to my internet connection, I'm running of a cheap linksys WIRELESS router so my speed should be a bit higher.

    It said for windows updates and "interrogating".

    I've heard of the backdoors being built into Windows XP to allow microsoft to see into your machine, but I haven't heard of an actual set reserved amount of bandwidth. When I was running the same internet connection on a crappy 333mhz amd k6-2 processor w/ a 6gb harddrive and 64mb ram on Windows 98 First Edition I saw the same connection speed as I do on my current machine thats running XP.

    2.4ghz P4
    80gb harddrive
    512mb DDRAM
    XP Home Edition

    Bah, thats only .8 megabits per second higher than me and I get my internet for free. Granted you're not going to have the spikes I have and you'll be consistent with that speed day in and day out.

    With the suggesting Bandwidth limitation set to ENABLE and "0":

    2.6 megabits per second

    Communications 2.6 megabits per second
    Storage 316 kilobytes per second
    1MB file download 3.2 seconds
    Subjective rating Great


    WITH the default Bandwidth XP setting:

    2.1 megabits per second

    Communications 2.1 megabits per second
    Storage 259.7 kilobytes per second
    1MB file download 3.9 seconds
    Subjective rating Great


    HOLY SHIT. I'll be damned. Both tests were done IMMEDIATELY after changing the setting, with no new windows being created, and no new applications loaded. Tests were run twice for consistency.
