I am using a Netgear 3300 and receiving very slow speeds.

Syncing at the following speeds

DownStream Connection Speed
20334 kbps

UpStream Connection Speed
1064 kbps

but speedtest.net shows the following



Anybody else experience this?  Logged a call with Vodafone but they quickly told me it was not their problem and closed off the call.

Looks like the limited upload speed is causing a issue,

Check out the top few threads here that will get you in the right direct by starting with isolation tests,

Have you also tried another modem?

Going to get my hands on another modem today.

I am on the Shore but I have a mate in Pakaranga with same modem on Vodafone with same issue.

Trying to see if it's a compatibility problem

The downstream speed will be being artifically limited by the upload speed due to the way TCP works.

Many places on the Shore are getting new cabinets so we have the issue of mid point injection, Not saying this is the issue here but it might pay to check with the fixed line Broadband team

It won't be a midspan injection issue - that causes high attenuation and low sync speeds, which clearly isn't the issue here.

Personally I'd pick a modem compatibility issue. There is a lot of that going on these days.

I am working with Netgear to see where the problem lies.  This modem should be widely used and if this is the case, others should have the same problem

Hi,

I'm the mate in pakuranga :) 

What I have found is putting a linksys WAG160N on the line results in my upload speed increasing to 800-900kbps - still lower than the full 1015kbps I used to get about 4-5 weeks ago.

So is there anything about netgear that ihug doesn't like?

Graeme

I have arranged another modem.

My upload speeds have increased but my download speeds have dropped drastically.
