    My internet speed got downgraded today. From 2 mbps to a measly 256 kB/s T_T Oh how I yearn faster downloads :\ This won't do good for my rom collection.

    I have no idea, although I think this was meant to be a 256k and they somehow gave me 2 mbps. [​IMG]

    Not to be a technology nerd... but 2 mbps = 256 kB/s

    I had a crappy connection with XP once and it said "Connected: 100mb/s". But no doubt your connection is awesome.

    Wow, you guys complain about measly 256kbit connections and crap.
    I'm stuck on a very unstable 1mbps wireless connection with very bad pings and latency.
    And IT'S SHARED.
    Hell, I think 33.6kbps dialup is faster than this when pages only load after about 5 refreshes.

    Edit: It's l33ched off an unencrypted Wi-Fi network. My router had to be brought in and its transmit power boosted to 240%. That'll kill my router soon. But no choice [​IMG]
    I worship my old 8mbps connection [​IMG]
