They also claim they don't filter P2P so why are my downloads still slow or am I just percieving them to be?
what do you want me to share at this point to know what my best settings should be? I am a wireless notebook on xp with very little clue about what I am doing or should be obv. as I feel like I might have screwed up something vice fix it.. I have windows firewall up, but I believe I have the port opened and set up like suggested.. I am sure I will get a "your stupi" but am I missing something or just not seeing the forest for the trees..
Well, if they said 3Mb, then that should be around 375KB of download bandwidth. (3000Kb/8=375KB according to the first post)
The speed tests must be done numerous times and at different times of the day in order to get a more accurate estimation of what your download and upload bandwidth are, so go there again and do it all over.
As I say in the initial post, the upload speed is important too so find that out too from the tests.

Also, I'm greek so the way I understand: "can you be so kind as to tell me what this greek means?" is : "can you be so kind as to tell me what this incredibly obvious and easy to understand thing means?" kidding...
