    I guess I was looking at the Admin. upload rate, plus also looking at the other upload rates on that site. It IS a faster upload and download than what we had on dial up; but it seems to be such a disparity between the download and upload speed that I wondered why that was.

    Don't forget; I'm not a very computer literate person, I come here to LEARN stuff, NOT to solve other people's problems! ;)

    I feel like I'm still inkindergarten when it comes to computers, so please be patient with me. my son used to live at home and DO everything that I needed or wanted to do; now he's off on his own and "graces" us with his presence ever so often and I need to learn this stuff myself! :eek:
