Kilobits per second does not equal 'speed' as you experience it on CC. Latency (in ms) and your PC hardware are the most relevant factors.

Yeah Fan had said he just bought a top of the line super duper laptop.

I figure hardware to be an important factor but what's the difference between ping at 35 ms vs say 100 ms outside of the obvious time difference. How relative is it to real time before it's physically noticeable as CC only registers 1 second intervals.

Make the test to a Texas server instead, Seul. If you'd have that ping to the CC server you could easily be taking 5 terrs in a sec with clickies.

Hardware generally doesn't have much to do with your internet speed, its all about what you have running, and how quickly it can process the incomming info.

Also, you have to remember that net speed is measured in kilo-bits (thousand of 1's) per second, where as your network card which attaches to your modem/router is in mega-bytes (millions of 1's in groups of 8.).

However, if your running say a p3, with 256mb of ram, Xp and say Norton internet security your processing speed is going to be well, rather crap.

At the end of the day, most bottle necks come at the Modem/Router. However there are a few things you can do to help increase the speed.
1. Turn off Automatic Updates, this will stop you XP/Vista polling the M$ servers looking for updates etc (make sure to turn your office ones off to), or set to manual
2. Turn off your program auto updates (Java, Anti-virus, Acrobat, etc) again same polling thing, or set to manual.
3. Check the settings of your web-shield or what ever your anti-virus calls it, as it will check all data coming in before it is released to your machine, and add CC to the list of trusted sites/zones.
4. Make sure you don't have any P2P software running,
5. Clear your cache, and check your cache setting. (I'd get a program called CCleaner for this as it does a better job than anything that M$ ships)
6. Blow out your heat sinks (seriously, go down to your hardware store, by some caned air, whip your cover off your computer and blow the shit out, its amazing how much performance can be recovered by having a machine that's not over-heating)

A good way to check on how much stuff is using your internet connection is to open your command prompt (XP start -> run -> cmd, VISTA type cmd into the search box) once its open type in netstat -an if there are more than say 25-30 lines then you have some internet issues.

1/2/3. Great tips, but I'd like to add that they are meant for more experienced users (ask a techy friend if you have no idea what you're doing). Another downside is the fact that your software won't be updated regularly, but except for Windows you should still get notifications every 2 weeks or so to 'manually' update your antivirus/firewall software.
4. Even if you have P2P or other downloads running (web, newsgroups, FTP, etc.) make sure you cap your upload speed (and sometimes download speed as well). A rough estimate which allows for overhead is to cap your upload speed (if applicable) to 80% of your maximum value (i.e. if you have 100 kb/s upload, limit it to 75 kb/s).
5. CCleaner kicks ass. It's free, safe and simple. Get it here. Make sure you exclude the CC cookie at Options/Cookies if you run Dice Analyzer!
6. Remember to do this every 6 months to 1 year.
