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

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
