it may not be the NIC card like we thought. now seems like i've got things a bit better. installing a new LAN driver now has me w/ a steady connection...BUT the speeds are atrocious! on Speedtest i'm getting 4. download and .64 upload. as you can see the specs are pretty decent. i got a dsl Zoomtown connection. don't know much about PCs so any help is appreciated!
so you think there's still a prob w/ the nic or something? i'm not so sure. when looking at Zoomtown's site, it states they have speeds of UP TO 5mbp lol. so i guess i'm not much under that
that's nuts. i always assumed my old pc just sucked lol. i remember years ago people sending me stuff over AIM and commenting on how fast my connection was. i guess not no mo. all i know is Speedtest game me a C- and D grade heh
if i was to RMA, how does the process work? they send a new one then i send the old? basically about how long would my pc be down?
thanks again. everything seems to be fixed now tho. other than slow speeds, but that is about the best i can do here in my city. not many options. may still give asus a call tho. or take it to Microcenter. bet if i raise a little fuss they might switch out the board quickly.
