    I couldn't believe it, but I actually achieved almost a true 384k connection. Just wondering if it was a one time stars aligned moment or have others got the same speeds.

    I don't get over 100 on the speed test. Ever.

    hmmm, which site are you using for your speed test? are you using the 384k or the 192k (default) setting?

    I'm still unable even now to get my pdanet blutooth connection to work. error code 773 I believe. says to make sure it's configured correctly on both sides.

    I use my sbc/yahoo dsl speed test. It regularly shows me between 50-100.

    I ran the Cnet speed test and got a 250. So I don't know what the real speed is. But it is faster than nothing when I'm in a meeting or at the airport with no network connections.

    I have a sprint phone and we are talking about conecting using PDAnet and a usb cable.

    So why are all of these tests coming back with higher bandwidth results than possible? Is there are proxy or something?

    is there a speed difference when using PDANet with Bluetooth vs. with USB cable?

    The theoretical ceiling for bluetooth 1.1 is about 700k. Vision on a good day can burst up to around 140k.
    So, in theory bluetooth should never slow you down as the bt pipe is 5x as fat as the 1xrtt or vision pipe.

    As always, ymmv.

    Not to hijack the thread here or anything, but can any of you use google maps or gmail (web, not pop) through PDAnet? Nobody is responding to my other thread.

    yep, rest easy people. it was a fluke. I've used the sites ya'll posted and the best I got was 125k. the avg was about 111k. Oh well, I was hoping the setting in pdanet of 384k would bump up the speed. no go, it's actually faster with 192k.

    mportune,

    I have been able to access all the site that I have tried to use with PDAnet. I don't usually use google, but I have no reason to believe that it would not work.

    mg48,

    Thanks for the reply. Do me a favor next time you get a chance, and just try it. (specifically, maps.google.com, and gmail). There is something really odd going on and I can't pin it down.

    I have actual speed tests from Testmy.net and FTP/HTTP downloads when using BTDUN. I 've pulled about 7 to 9 MB of data at a sustained transfer rate of around 32Kilobytes/second. I think that's around 256K. I do this almost constantly.

    Upstream is around 5Kilobytes/second, downstream is easiily and quite often 32Kilobytes/second or faster. Never drops below 25 to 29 Kilobytes/second.

    Note, Kilobytes, not Kilobits.

    As far as I know this is out of spec for the PCS network, but that is what I get. I'm an IT Ninja and know how to measure speed and bandwidth using REAL tests and events, not pseudo-speed tests.

    great post evlighost. How do you measure these rates? What exactly are you looking at. Like I said, using these connection speed sites, I got an avg rating of 111k. Yours seems much better.

    I've used Win32 ports of the GNU utlities like curl and wget to measure speed. Additionally, I've used software like DUMeter as well as Opera (the browser of choice for me) to measure and guage HTTP downloads. Opera is accurate in that unlike IE, current downloading rates are correctly calculated and are not averaged out like in IE. Firefox should be just as accurate but I don't use it.

    I've also used LeechFTP and monitored the rate, which seemed quite consistent at around 30Kilobytes/second for the 5 MB transfer.

    Additionally, I've used http://www.testmy.net which I find to be quite an accurate speed test accurately reflecting real-world data in a speed-test environment.

    Hope this helped.

    Yep, more info to research always helps. thanks again.

    PDA NET IS SWEET. It even works after the trial period. You just have to keep closing the annoying window... But hey it's free(ish).
