My upload rate is faster than my download rate.
I have a 64kbps plan in which the upload seems to go upto 12 while the download sits quietly at 1 or 2. I tried capping the upload speed to see if there was any increase in the download speed. Initially theer was, but after that it was all the same.

What should I do??

I went to this site
Code:
http://www.broadbandreports.com/tweaks
but the tweak applet keeps saying * Downloading file of size 1024000: .

Pls help!!

wow! You are getting close to 80Kbps on your 64Kbps connection! I usually get only 6KBps :(

^^ Heh heh.. max, under TataIndicom, i get 80kbps instead of 64kbps.. i think everyone under TIndicom gets that. but thats no compensation for the exorbitant pricing!!Rs.880 for 64kbps unlimited???? *Expletive*.I badly want Airtel, but they arent providing in my area yet.. :(

haha! I pay 650 bucks for a sucky 64Kbps connection which works more like 48Kbps connection! So I guess 880 bucks for an 80Kbps connection is justifiable ;) But are your ports blocked???

@uthfull: oops... BTW i got the same message, but on checking DUMeter, nothing seems to be happening/ i.e., no 'downloading'!@ max: no, i've checked, and no ports seem to be blocked..
