i will just rewind a bit and tell you all the problem.
about 8 months ago i asked orcon (my previous internet provider) to change my plan to a maximum upload/download plan.
i got 3000down - which isn't a problem - however still remained to get 164 up.
after 1 month of that plan, since i wasn't getting the speed i was promised up, i just set it back to max down/164 up.
now i am with xnet. I got the max down/max up plan as i am a gamer and would obviusly get alot better ping if i got max upload.
however when i reset our dynalink RTA1335 router, it just keeps it at 164 : / (i have always used this router)
but i have noticed, that sometimes when i reset it it will get a speed of ~1000down/700up but then about 10 seconds later it will automatically reset the speed again and i will get 3000/164 (nomal).
So, i found and internal dsl modem.
And it worked! 2400 down/700 up, with 20 ping on bf2 (as opposed to 40) i couldnt have been happier. (and it got this speed every time i reset)
but,i can still only use the router, as we have 3 computers in the house and they all need internet.
i tried internet sharing with windows xp with the internal card but i can't have cables lying around the house to connect the internal card to a wall plug. (router isn't near my computer)
so, now i have to go back to using the router with my 164 limited upload.
my first question is,
Is anyone else getting this problem? Whether it be with the same router or not.
Is it definatly this router? or if i get a new one will it possibly do it with other external ones too?
does anyone know why it is the router disconnects when the upload is ~700?
and why will i get slower download speeds if i am getting max upload?
Thank you all so much for your answers in advance
I really appreciate it.
