I'm doing SNMP and Netflow traffic monitoring on the switch port that the HR20 is connected to. I use a unix box primarily but you can download PRTG for Windows if you have a router or switch that supports SNMP.

So the question remains for an expert on the forum or a D* employee familiar with the situation:

Is DirecTV (or LimeLight) screwing around with download speeds?

I'm having the same problem as others here. I have a 10mb connection, but can't download programs too fast...It takes about 45 min for a 28 minute show...

I wonder if in my case Global Crossing could be the culprit. It appears that LimeLight has a node in Atlanta (ve5.fr4.atl1.llnw.net. It appears to hand off from LimeLight to Global Crossing and finally to Comcast.

Well, I have ruled out Sandvine as a culprit. I ran a packet capture and saw no RST packets incoming.

I have noticed that with a new router the download speed is quicker after Comcast fixed my RG6. I had a tree branch fall on it and it knocked it out of place, so I was getting intermittent Internet on my computer. They came out today, and I also bought the new router today (Linksys WRT54GS) and it seems to be fine. I downloaded three programs. On one program it stopped just before the commercial, but I don't care about that. I don't believe Comcast is conspiring to sabotage my signal with DirecTV via Internet, they don't know what I am downloading.

Thanks to the collective knowledge of this group my DOD is installed and working properly. Using DSL the download speed is painfully slow. It seems the only practical thing to do is to download at night. Not really "on demand" but OK. I assume the HD downloads, when available, will be even slower. Anyone using a cable modem? How is the download speed?


My download testing was fairly OK. It was not super fast, but also not super slow. What is your DSL speed?
