Hi guys
I am experiencing a slow broadband speed and a diagnostic test says the following:-

"The theoretical network limit is 41.31 Mbps The NDT server has a 84.0 KByte buffer which limits the throughput to 5.02 Mbps Your PC/Workstation has a 63.0 KByte buffer which limits the throughput to 1.90 Mbps The network based flow control limits the throughput to 1.94 Mbps"

Can anyone please tell me what to do about this

nehoma,

Do you have a VirginMedia connection by any chance? They're rolling out upgrades at the moment. If on Virgin give them a call and they'll run some tests on the connection and reset the modem if necessary.

Just out of interest what are you using for diagnostics?
