I am in downtown Toronto as well, and recently upgraded from Internet express to Extreme. What a mistake ! Now my connection seems like a dial-up and extremely slow, to the point I just wanna throw everything out of the window. What is wrong? why would Extreme be slower than dialup, let alone the express I had. I am really frustrated. Any ideas, help ! I would like to update to ultimate but am afraid that will ulimately slow for some reason:-)
THIS APPLIES TO EVERYONE WITH THE NEW SMC ROUTER/MODEM COMBO. THEY ARE ABSOLUTE GARBAGE THATS THE REASON YOU GET 1MBPS AT NIGHT. This is what i recomend Get a Linksys or Dlink wirless G or N routers and hook them up to the SMC Gateway . you will notice a big preformance difference. I had this issue until 2 minutes ago when i installed my old linksys Wifi G router and now im getting 20MBPS on Express. ITS THE CRAPPY SMC ROUTER.
