Is there a way to increase or optimize your internet connection speed? I have Cox Broadband which claims the following: 4000 down, 512 up. I have never, ever even once gotten close to those speeds. The highest d/l I ever get is 300kb/s sometimes 320 if lucky. Not sure about u/l speed, as I don't do much uploading. Should I be getting better speeds than 300kb/s? I've tried the tests on dslreports.com and I am consistently lower than I should be. Is there any problem I can correct? If it helps, I am connected to my cable modem by USB. Would the speed increase if I used the network cable to connect instead of USB? Any help will be appreciated (and repped of course). Thanks.
