Internet speed - bits or bytes?
I asked Comcast and they said bits, but I'm still confused. I had an old 8yr old modem Motorola PCX2200 downloading at 500-600KB/s. Got a new one last night, a Linksys BEFCMU10 ver 4 with updated DOCSIS standards and now I'm downloading at slower speeds - in the 150-200KB/s range. But if I do a power-cycle on the Linksys modem and start downloading a file, it starts at 3500KB/s but immediately drops down to 150-200KB/s.

So was the 500-600KB/s d/l rates normal? And if so, I guess I should just keep my old crap modem ha

Could just be different times of the day.
