    My broadband (Road Runner) has been getting slower and slower lately. [​IMG] What's a good way to test the speed of the connection?

    Go visit DSLReports. They've got online 'speed tests' you can use that are VERY good as well as some excellent tools for tweaking your connection setup.
    I really like that site & their forum.

    Thanks Brian.
    I ran a few of the speed tests from the site, and it reports that my connection is above average with no porblems noted.
    The funny thing is that lately, it has been taking much longer for my computer to load various web pages.
    I don't get it. [​IMG]

    Also on DSLReports, run a Tweak Test, see what that says. And use a Speakeasy mirror near you (wdc.speakeasy.net or nyc.speakeasy.net would be good) and test those.
