Hello,

I am living on campus and I have a High bandwith connection that windows says is connected at 100mbps. I am not sure what kind of connection it is tho... I am getting on average 100kbs downloads which sort of sucks... I tried using DAP but it doesnt help.... What can I do to increase my download speeds? Thanks.

Because you have a 100Mbps ethernet link to the school's router.

Get a better connection?

Its a classic case of 'oversubscription'. The 100Mbps connection is Ethernet, which is good...the problem is, 25,000 other people probably have the same thing and all aggregate to a single Egress point :shock:

...also...Your connection to something..anything (ie. a host) is only as fast as te slowest link..you can have Verizon's spiffy new fiber to the home product at 30Mbps (3,750KBps), but if the server you connect to is attached via a tiny T1 you will never see download speeds greater than ~200KBps

Nothing you can do, unless the school changes their infrastructure...good luck with that :wink:

100kb/s (kbytes/sec) is typical of DSL, that's about 768kbps (bits/sec) not sure what type of WAN connection your place has but maybe you are seeing a throttling effect of the main campus routers - Makes sense they would cap each segment so no-one can hog all the bandwidth.
