It is 11:30 PM at night when normally the internet speeds are the best. For the last couple of days now, the bandwidth has been quite poor. I just did a Speed Test with Speakeasy and received the following results from the San Fransisco server:
- 338 kbps Downloads
- 57 kbps Uploads
That is a big difference from 6 days ago. Even during the weekend I got better bandwidth.
Another network upgrade FPT? Nope, it turns out that my Wireless Access Point was sucking most of the bandwidth. Below are the Speed Test results when I unplugged my WAP:
- 1706 kbps Downloads
- 205 kbps Uploads
I thought I had a pretty good password on my Wireless Access Point but with the readily available cracking programs here in Saigon, I am not surprised that someone broke it.
I will ask my roommate to get his own ADSL line into the house.
Edit: It turns out that my housemate was downloading four movies with Bittorrent.
