I'm assuming you have the HomePortal DSL Modem/Router with your Yahoo! SBC connection .....

You should have access to the diagnostics website at "http://172.16.0.1/management" to view information about the connection itself

Did you mean ADSL?

ADSL is a contended service. When you sign up for X amount of bandwidth, you are sharing it with X amount of other users. It's all in the contract. If everyone is on the wire at once, performance will be poor.

Regardless of the connection type, IP routing overheads will always consume some of your bandwidth.

your link to your test results show you have 294kbps down and 102kbps up, thats good for DSL on a bad day, do this test atleast 5 times in one day, at different times thruout the day to see how it changes, if it stays constant then maybe there is a problem.

You dont share any bandwidth on the wire. Yes, the peering capacity is definatly overbooked, but thats true with EVERY ISP, so I fail to see your point. Statistically its unlikely for speeds such as his to be slowed down by overbooking unless his ISP sucks :/

ADSL has that issue sadly with the user usage. That's why I love cable, same speed no matter whos on :)

its really the same problem for both.. it all comes down to the ISP's bandwidth although with xDSL you get a dedicated pipe to the DSLAM instead of sharing the cable plant's into a CMTS with several thousand users.. (i.e. Time Warner used to put 6k users on a single motorla CMTS)

my personal opinion is Comcast is the best.. 400KBps speeds, great reliability and great peering..

I had always assumed ADSL works much like a switch. Where every user has a 512Kb (for example) switchport, but they share a 512Kb trunk.

Have you checked the DSL Modem/Router diagnostics yet? Check the cable ....
