    Have you got any friends that would let you check the new modem on their network?

    Settings?  Could be, of course.

    And if the slower speeds were always like that from Day One when you hooked up that new modem and you find your settings and installation were not the problem then it could be the new modem was a bad fish from the beginning and those folks that sold it to you need to give you a new one.

    Still, a very interesting turn of events.  I think that the line and wiring can now be crossed off the list of suspects, yes?

            Do appreciate the updates.  Nice to see that us human types can take on these little machines and figure them out sometimes.

            You do realize it is a kind of game between these machines and us, now?  These machines have formed a kind of "Mess With Humans" group and they do things like what happened to you, juicebox.  They (the machines) do something like don't work right and then see what the human reaction is.  This time, juicebox, it looks like the humans win.

            I wrote it's a "kind of game" but some humans take it much more seriously with the view that the machines are mapping our reactions to such events so the machines can figure out how to take over the planet some day.

            And how stupid we humans are we send unescorted (by humans) machines to other planets to supposedly do our human bidding.  How many of those machines have broken loose from human bonds and are doing their own thing?  And we just put that down to a breakdown of some sort and move on.  Hah! We'll hear from them again, I'll bet!!

            EDIT:  Just fixing some of my stupid spelling mistakes.

                  Here are the statistics of the modem that i got replaced(this is with everything plugged into it and a couple of wifi leeches just to let yous know, if anyone would like me to do a speed test with only my computer plugged into the modem please let me know), i think the stats are all apples, so if no one disagrees im going to hit "topic solved"

                  One last time i want to say thank you to all that helped out with this problem im really grateful and happy to know that if i have any future problems i can come here and get all the help i need.
                  merry Christmas and a happy new year!
