    what are the caps of your connection? 10mbps seems high, or is that just what you LAN connection is reporting?

    You should have a cap rate given by your ISP. Something like 1500kbps download and 384kbps upload. I haven't dealt with any microwave-typpe connections. One well to guess at your caps is to run a speed test and post the results. http://chi.speakeasy.net

    I run the broadband test it came up download speed at 494 kbps.
    upload speed 120 kbps .
    that sounds pretty good but still seems slow compared to what I was used to the cable
    Thank you

    ok, your cable probably was significantly faster. I would guess from that that you are either 512 or 768kbps download and 128kbps upload.
