Thread: A-dsl Bandwidth

  1. #1
    Just to be sure I got it clear: I have an asynchronus DSL connection 384/128. If I get it correctly, then this means that (theoretically, at least), no matter if I hit my full D/L speed limit in Kazaa (384 Kb/s), I still can simultaneously upload up to 128 Kb/s, right?

    The other possibility would be that the 384 speed limit is the total maximum. In att case, it would be that if I fully utilised my 128 Kb/s U/L speed limit then I can D/L only up to 256 (=384-128)?

    I think that the first is the correct case, but pls advise me on this.

    I agree - the first option is theoretically correct

    I see. This is good news for uploaders, then: Since U/Ling doesn&#39;t interfere with your D/L speed, one can let the max U/L bandwidth limit in K-Lite as high as possible (provided that he/she has this type of connection, of course).

    One less excuse for those who don&#39;t share&#33;

    Know also that your downloads need upload bandwidth, to request the next bit,so you should not set your upload bandwidth to your max upload capability B)


    If you attack the establishment long enough and hard enough, they will make you a member of it.

    U are absolutely right. Moreover, there are other apps that will be in need for some U/L bandwidth (e.g., Outlook). But still, it is nice to know that one can allocate a large amount of U/L bandwidth (but not all), and still enjoy his D/Ls unabated.

    it isn&#39;t asynchronous adsl, it&#39;s asynchronous dsl. that&#39;s what the A stands for. that&#39;s what you have. the download speed is no better or worse than other dsl types, but the upload speed is basically crippled in order to reduce the ISP&#39;s bandwidth costs-- they&#39;re trying to stop their customers from running servers at home, by giving them very little upload bandwidth.

    Some A/DSL lines have shared bandwidth -- they CAN&#39;T download and upload near max at the same time... part of their bandwidth is either download OR upload.

    However, that&#39;s usually the FASTER A/DSL lines that are like that.
