    Surely your wife's name isn't Wilma.

    How's everybody's HT Dsl connection lately? I live in Waikiki and after the transition, my download speed has gone down

    When I was on Verizon, I used to avg about 60-70 Kbps downloading a file....now, I'm going below 20 Kbps.

    Does anyone know if HT DSL is PPPoE?
    What's HT's DSL connection speed for Residential customers?

    My HawTel DSL connection has been just fine
    What is your connection speed rate at 1.5Mbps/3Mbps ?
    HT DSL does not use PPPoE
    3Mbps/1.5Mbps are current flavors.

    I really don't know. Does Residential accounts have a different speed?

    I've been trying to optimize my dsl connection with TCPOptimizer and when I set the speed to higher than 768 Kbps, my download starts slowing down.

    Aaron, what's a good speed test site? I remember you recommended one, but I've been all through this thread and don't find it.

    I've been using http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/ to test my speed and I've been getting below 200 kbps My upload avg 100 kbps

    Thanks. I just tried it. 1238/364 from the LA server. 1264/366 from the SF server. That's a residential phone line.

    You've obviously got a problem somewhere; whether it's distance from the switch or a tiring piece of equipment I don't know enough to say.

    Here's my result (LA server)

    Download Speed: 142 kbps (17.8 KB/sec transfer rate)
    Upload Speed: 100 kbps (12.5 KB/sec transfer rate)

    BTW, what dsl modem are you using? I have the one provided by Verizon (Fujitsu Speedport). Could that be the problem?

    Westell (also provided by Verizon). I went DSL about 22 months ago, and that's what Verizon was giving out then. Also using a D-Link DL-604 router.

    I had my Fujitsu modem for about 4 years. And I'm also using a Linksys DSL Router.

    I haven't a clue about how to test either piece of gear. Other folks here may, though.

    Fujitsu modem...that means you can't get anything higher that 1.5Mbps
    as your circuit goes through frame relay. The new Westell modems support
    the higher speeds (e.g 3Mbps). With a 1.5Mbps connection you should be
    seeing atleast 120KB/sec or higher. I would inquire with Hawaiian Tel to
    reprovision your circuit.

    No
    Right now I'm downloading a file and it's downloading under 5 KB/s
    Before HT, I was able to download files around 60-70 KB/s

    I think it is just coincidence that your drop in speed happened during the transition. Based upon the age of your modem, I think your modem is dying.
    That being said, re-provision your connection may take a week or more
    from frame relay (Fujitsu) to ATM (Westell).

    Anyone else wants Hitel to change their web mail system? If I remembered, a few customers complained about how its organized, and that its hard to report spam mesages. I didn't realized how bad it was when I started using it at the beginning of this month. (yes, I have outlook at home and on my laptop, but its a pain to secretly plug my laptop into the school's network to check my mail on outlook)
    How'd I get so white and nerdy?

    I finally got my Westell modem last week and today I was transferred to ATM. I can't believe how fast my HSI is
    Right now I'm downloading at 2567 mbps (920.0 Kbps) and uploading at 333 mbps (41.6 Kb)

    Anyone knows how to get a website going with them? With Verizon, they offered a personal website. But when I inquired to HiTel a few months before the transition, they said that they'll do the same like Verizon. But its been a few months, and all I see is a blogging service, but I can't login with either my HiTel info or my old Verizon info.

    I had to "register" an account on Blogware or whatever through the window that popped up to get in, and in the end my username just ended up being "(HiTel parent username)hawaiiantelnet" and my regular password. Seemed a little pointless but I got in just the same. It's still just a blog, though.

    Anyone noticed inconsistent speeds with their Hawaiian Tel DSL service ?
    Since 6-25-06, my speeds have dramatically dropped off. I've noticed other
    people in other forums mentioning trouble ? But I'm just trying to gage
    how widespread it is ?

    Aaron,

    Have you tried the systemmetrics bandwidth test?

    I know it's not as good as the ones on dslreports, but it'll at least help you pinpoint where the bottleneck is.

    Since HiTel has a HIX connection now, you should get near linespeed using the SM tester.

    Glad to see I'm not alone in wondering what happened!

    This is what farnsworth.uhnet.net:7123 gave me (and note the time of this post):

    TCP/Web100 Network Diagnostic Tool v5.3.3a
    click START to begin
    Checking for Middleboxes . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Done
    running 10s outbound test (client to server) . . . . . 388.36Kb/s
    running 10s inbound test (server to client) . . . . . . 622.72kb/s
    Your PC is connected to a Cable/DSL modem
    Information: Other network traffic is congesting the link

    Link set to Full Duplex mode
    Information: throughput is limited by other network traffic.
    Good network cable(s) found
    Normal duplex operation found.
    Web100 reports the Round trip time = 40.01 msec; the Packet size = 1460 Bytes; and
    There were 71 packets retransmitted, 60 duplicate acks received, and 101 SACK blocks received
    The connection stalled 9 times due to packet loss
    The connection was idle 2.23 seconds (18.58%) of the time
    This connection is network limited 99.7% of the time.
    Contact your local network administrator to report a network problem
    Contact your local network admin and report excessive packet reordering
    Excessive packet loss is impacting your performance, check the auto-negotiate function on your local PC and network switch
    For reference, I have a 1.5/384 here in Kailua and normally get in the neighborhood of 1200-1300 kbps.

    Can you send me a link to it, I would greatly appreciate it.

    I've tried LavaNet's speedtest and didn't get really good results
    (even when my connection was working)....Why that is important is...
    I'm not sure how helpful the SM may be ?

    Mahalo for the confirmation of poor speeds. I really do appreciate it.
