Very Slow Upload Speed

[ Edited ]

Hello, I have recently signed up (7 days ago) for Verizon FIOS and suscribed to the 25/15mb package. I'm very happy with the download speed. Download speeds have been consistent between 25 - 26mb no complaints there. =) On the other hand my upload speeds have been very poor. Have done several speed test from different sites including verizons and all give the same results about 1 - 2mb upload average. I have done the fios optimizer and have done the verizon pc check and had no issues there. I have also reset the router and no luck. I am running windows xp with 4 gigs of ram and have an X2 processor. I'm running Norton Internet Security but have disabled it during the test. My PC is connected through an Ethernet cable (not wireless).

 

Any suggestions would be great and appreciated. Thank You!

Re: Very Slow Upload Speed

Are you living in a multi-dwelling building ? If so, does each unit have its own Verizon equiipment out on the wall outside, or not?

Re: Very Slow Upload Speed

What brand of network adapter do you have? You can check by Right-Clicking on 'My Computer' -> Hardware -> Device manager.  I have heard of users having NVIDIA network adapters (built into the motherboard of course) and have a setting known as "First Packet" and can disabled in the network adapter properties.

Re: Very Slow Upload Speed

Do you have QOS setup on the router? I've seen slow upload speeds when it is turned on. Make sure the router has it default settings and test again.
