    ah...mcafee agrees with you prodg, but they found this connection to be infinity anyway

    read the time elapsed for the downoad;...zero.

    I'll tell you, I think they're wrong about that, but I can't be sure.

    that site is messed up. i have comcast, the yclaim 4 megs down, i usualy get 4 - 4.4.

    ok, i went to that link, got a 2.2, so i clicked on re-test. it then tells me:

    NaN kbps
    NaN file size
    NaN megs/sec

    then when i hit the back button it told me

    33.56 megs/sec.

    did this a few times and it was consistant.

    cleared my cache and had the same again.

    FF 1.01 Comcast Cable

    I think you have to use Internet Explorer to get that site to work right.

    I just tried the McAfee one and the first test said DSL/Cable then the next said Network (T-1) with the last one saying 56K modem so I question the accuracy of the test in general.

    I feel more accurate tests can be found at Dslreports as there are East and West coast test servers so you can test with one near you. I think there are a total of 307 test servers at Dslreports.

    Yeah, it's completely inaccurate. I'm on a 802.11b wireless network here on campus, and I get 468.754 Mbps (58.594 MBps) without caching - it's the first time I've opened the page.
    True...this is an insanely fast connection here, but it should be capped at 11 Mbps due to the wireless link itself.
