Anyone else with an ADSL having a problem?
I have an adsl from swbell, it's an (alcatel 1000ADSL) The palin im on is 1.5 Mbps downstream and 128 Kbps upstream.
It smokes downstream, I don't even know how fast it will go I saw it dl at like 90 Kbps but the upload is slow as heck like 10-13Kbps, is their anything I can do about this..or am i just stuck with slow uploads?
Most DSL providers limit the upstream speed, atleast the ones i've read about. Have you called them and asked ?
There isn't much you can do. It's not just a cap limit that your provider has. It is actually the max upload speed of the modem. Different modem have different speeds.
The company I work for has three different models. There max upload speeds are 64K,128K, and 256K.
But even I cannot choose which one I would have gotten. I run a server, so thats why I went with a cable modem.
If your service provider has different models of modems. You can see if they would switch yours for a faster 256K up modem. But the chance is rare.
DSL is not ment for hosting or both way transfers. Save your money for a dedicated line.
I think it really depends on your provider. My DSL link is 256k both ways. My only limit is poor choices for ISP. I'm running right now on an ISP that shares a single T1 line for all its users, including several commercial T1 lines. Even so, I can get upstream rates equal to my downstream rates which average 60-80k on file downloads. DSL is scalable up to 7Mbit download 1Mbit upload which, with a good ISP, would be very suitable to even a commericial server. That speed depends on the DSL modem at both ends of course. I'm running a Cisco 675. As it is, I can feed web service to multiple concurrent connections without too much trouble. In this area at least (TCI@home), cable modems are limited to 128k upstream speeds which saturates pretty quickly. The service contract also states clearly that servers are not allowed. Both cable and DSL are capable of providing good upload speeds, but it depends on the type of service you can get in your area. You have to investigate what is available and pick what best suits your use. For me, DSL was the way to go. Even though my D/L bandwidth is 1/4 of the cable in the area, U/L is twice. I can always upgrade if it isn't enough.
