Hey Guys... Excuse my ignorance. I have cable modem through the local cable provider here. I honestly don't know the up/down speeds, but it seems alright. My questions are a) how can I tell how fast I am connecting, and b) is there anything I can do to increase my speed connect to the web? I am running Win XP Home and have a Toshiba Cable Modem. Let me know your thoughts..... Thanks!
