    thanks

    is this a production machine (websites, ftp etc) or just for home. What services do you have enabled??

    this is just a workstation at work no odd services are running. this is just a basic install with windows updates.

    besides the fact youre running a server instead of professional... were you ever able to get faster d/l's What kind of connection do you have?? Have you checked for spyware on this machine?? If not try spybot.

    you could be throttled since youre running a server and are not payiing for it. Some cable companies will do that. What are the processes looking like. Whats connected to you (netstat -a from the cmd prompt) anything interesting??

    check with your provider then. sounds like something may be wrong with a router.

    but you dont supply the upstream... who does? Or its a network issue related to a router or a firewall.

    Ok let's go over this one more time. I work for the isp. Granted our backbones are supplied by someone else but the oc-12's are no where near being pegged. If i unplug this win2k3 box and plug in an xp box, there's no problems at all. I even tried putting the ethernet card from the xp box into the win2k3 box and it's still not working. There's nothing wrong with the bandwidth, there's no throttling being done. It's an issue related to this os. If anyone has any ideas that aren't completely retarded, please let me know.

    I didn’t mean for it to come out that way, but its like going to get your car fixed and you tell the guy at the counter that there is a loud noise coming from your muffler and he intern says I think you need your oil changed...

    do you see where I am gettin at ?

    What there was no need for is the lame excuses that people were giving as help. You know as well as I do that this place has smart people in it. "Oh it must be your provider, they're blocking you or throttling your connection". Those answers are completely bogus, canned responses to people when they complain of bandwith issues. This whole thread is worthless for the pure fact that no one tried to help and then complained when they were called on it.

    If that's true then you know that the responses you gave are bull. He clearly told you that an xp box worked fine on the same connection yet you continued on the "check with your provider blah blah blah" route. If you ask me there's some people on this forum that have a god complex.
