My d/l speed is 12 megs but my u/l speed is only 0.43 kbs...the ISP tech just left and when he ran tests on his laptop, the u/l speed is close to 2 megs...what would be slowing it down on my computer ? I've ran 3 different anti-virus programs and even ad-aware and every single one has not found a single thing...not even the ad stuff...all seems to be clean...what services might be slowing down u/l speed ?

I found the problem...after a few dawned on me that I had tried the "first packet" technology in my Nvidia graphics card. I disabled the option and when I went back to speedtest and 2 other network tests .. i forget their name.... my upload speed on all of them had jumped up from 0.43 kbs to their normal 2 mbs. In other words, dont enable "first packet" unless you are actually playing a game at the time and it will at least lower your ping rate if nothing else.
