why do u think i started a thread
the mbps speeds were not fr long .. was on torrents and started getting above 150 kbps so checked the speeds .. then downloaed from -- link removed -- . to confirm .. def mbps speeds ..

the 80 KBps stayed fr bout an hour ..



but all this started after i restarted my modem this morning coz it got disconnected and showed some error when i tried to connect ..

(mebbe 591 or somethin like that).. so i restarted my modem and got these speeds ..

sometimes funny things happen... once when I installed Tiny Personal Firewall, the speed tests went bonkers showing something like 10 times the speed I was actually getting....

i know once i installed that Bitcomet acceleration patch and all acceleration i got was in my BWmeter readings, they were showing inflated values. And airtel's speed test servers suck, i use http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/ , the new york server.

Dude i seriously think that these screenshots hv been editing...
