Confused!!! Help!

Anybody else gettin really strange results from ADSLGuide speed testHuh Or is it just meHuh

Downstream 262 Kbps (32.8 KB/sec) 301 Kbps (inc. overheads)
Upstream 422 Kbps (52.8 KB/sec) 485 Kbps (inc. overheads)

Seems to be in reverse doesn't it...this isn't a one-off tho...it's regular. My download speed isn't impressive tho (even at this slightly non-peak time)...and PlusNet Big Brother confirms it.

Advice anyone?

Changed my MTU to 1458 was 1400 and I got these results
Downstream 468 Kbps (58.5 KB/sec) 538 Kbps (inc. overheads)
Upstream 240 Kbps (30.0 KB/sec) 276 Kbps (inc. overheads)

On Dr tcp, what should the other settings be set atHuh or do you leave them as default?

You have to shut down your comp completely for the settings to take, not just a restart. also check out this link

RE: Confused!!! Help!

I got to agree with something not being right. I have been doing some downloading and uploading and using du meter to see what is happening, what I have been seeing is downloads hitting between 10 to 20 KB/sec, while my uploads have been been hitting between 30 to 50 KB/sec, sometimes they do go higher or lower but most of the time they have been sitting in this range, I even seen upload speeds hitting in eccess of 60 KB/sec. I just wish my download speeds were the same as my uploads as i want the download speed more than the upload speed but it is weird it sounds like some1 has got the wires the wrong way around.
