|I can't possibly imagine what it would be in SP3 that is causing my speed tests to come up so slow.|
On another note, I have run speedtest.net and a speed test provided by my ISP and I continue to have issues. I spoke with tech support with my ISP today and it turns out I am supposed to have a 7 Mbps connection (they upgraded me and I wasn't aware of it; rather nice of them). So there is even more of a problem than I thought. At tech support they said it might be a hardware issue so they offered to swap out the modem. I already swapped out ethernet cables and that isn't the issue. I am using the integrated ethernet on my motherboard. I tried to plug in an old ethernet card and try that out but apparently it isn't working anymore so maybe the integrated ethernet is somehow faulty, but that seems unlikely. So I will pick up a new modem tomorrow. Aside from that, is there a way to test my ethernet port directly and see if there is something wrong with it?
