He has never been able to get more than about 33-35Kb/sec on a download which is strange given we are supposed to have at least 2Mbs upload on the TCL cable. Even more interestingly, when he starts up multiple ftp sessions, he can have up to 5-6 sessions running, each at about 30Kbs eventually saturating the upstream link capacity so he can get the file reasonably quickly.
I also encounter a similar problem when using smartftp to upload files to a web server - I have never been able to get more than about 35Kbs upload speed.
Just wondering what the problem is. And this is with a number of different routers though I haven't yet tried plugging the PC directly into the modem.
