not sure if my router is capping my internet or maybe my isp accidently capped it accidentally ? i have 10mbit package internet from isp but.. on router it shows this:



is this from my router or my modem or cable lines that can't support more speed?

my package is a 10mbit internet package but i am not able to get past 4mbit !

i remember long time ago with my old router i managed to get more speed like with my 8mbit speed of internet

but this is router is kinda new actually i bought it few years ago.. but it was newer then my 2004 or 2005 router i'm pretty sure

my old 2004-2005 router could let me download around 8mbit stable too

also when i am torrenting or download i never manage to get faster then speeds around 4mbit and 440kb at most

but what is puzzling me is my new router is supposed to support 150mbits wirelessly when it advertises on it's box

i am suprised it can't even go past 4mbit.. but i'm not sure if it's the router or my modem or cable lines?

my router is belkin F6-D4630

Hi, your modem is syncing at 4.6Mb/s which will result in around the 4Mb/s TCP throughput you are seeing.

4.6Mb/s, 33dB attenuation and a 31dB noise margin suggests that the line has issues, most likely there is either a non filtered device across the line or even more likely a line tap either within your house wiring or depending on the age and design of the street wiring within the telco's street network.

My guess based on where you (middle east) are is both of those.

Once you sort the wiring issues and optimise the line for DSL (rather than just voice) then re evaluate the sync speed and then we can see if there is some further upstream ISP limitation.
