Compared to the average of 3978 tests from comcast.net:
* download is 60% worse, upload is 76% better

Of course, that'* on my laptop'* wireless connection......
and so whats the diufference? if its WiFi, 802.11b or 802.11g then your local area connection is already surpassing the speed of your internet connection by 8-51 MBPS. Its funny how much of a common misconception that really is. unless of course there is some other reason its slower, then I'll just go dig myself into a hole

***Triple the speed of DSL claim is based on Road Runner'* standard maximum download speed of 5.0 Mbps versus the standard DSL package'* maximum download speed of 1.5 Mbps. Dial-up speed comparisons are based on Road Runner'* maximum download speed of 5.0 Mbps versus the average maximum download speeds of 28k and 56k modems. Actual speeds may vary.
