Tuning high speed systems
 This is a special test for high speed modems: DSL, Cable, T1, etc.
Before we begin... please read how this works.  You will need a stopwatch or similar way to record time.   You are about to download a very large file by WWW standards.  It is 1000 kilobytes or 8000 kilobits (the unit for measuring modem speed).
Get your watch ready.
