    Do you have to use IE there? Chrome doesn't put ads like that on FireFox.

    What am I missing?

    I'm not sure. I took a look at the code, but it looked fine to me. I reported it, so hopefully lincoln will have an answer.

    @Rewired, I believe that you will not be able to post HTML (ie: Images) due to being a "new" member. You will be upgraded when you hit 50 posts to allow such posts.

    Welcome Back :)

    Nope, using Firefox. Don't have ABP running because I'm not a dick.

    but mostly because I've just been too lazy to install the addon

    What's your stated line speed? Several of us experienced increased speeds (and I'm on TWC) by purchasing a new modem (the SB6121 is popular)

    +1 for the Motorola SB6121. It's what I got when I switched to cable, works well for me. Plus NewEgg has it on a pretty steep markdown from MSRP most of the time.

    What's a "stated line speed"?
  • TushonTushon I'm scared, Coach Alexandria, VA Icrontian
    What the provider says you should be getting.

    20MB up / 5MB down, for example.

    What's a "stated line speed"?

    The speed allocated that your work is paying for. The best place to look at this is on the bill for the service. It will state the speeds on the line showing the charge for the internet service.

    10 down and 1 up might be acceptable if your stated line speed is 12 / 2 or something like that but would be unacceptable if you are paying for 20/10 for instance.

    Not bad. Cox is supposed to be upgrading my home interwebs from 25/3 to 50/10 soon. There will be a 100/20 package available too...might have to look into that one.

    TIL that the home internet connection at ICHQ is as fast as Boeing's.

    Switched to Comcast today. It's twice as fast as what i had before but seeing all your speeds makes me want to pay the extra 10 bucks for 50 megs.

    Just switched from TWC to CinBell FiOptics. My speeds went from 2mbps down/ 10kbps up to 8.5mbps down / 800kbps up. Also, it's 10$/mo cheaper.

    Still not super, but it's the best I can get in the area without spending over 70$/mo.
