BigDave----If your cable is at 1500 you're SMOKING . Take a look at www.dslreports.com they have several program tweaks for cable which work really well (I use them myself). At 1500, thats T1 speed. Must not be many people on your node.
As gbrumb mentioned, if your truly getting 1500kb then there's no need to tweak anything. Are you sure your not getting 1500kbps which translates to 187kb? When transfer rates are mentioned, they are usually talking about KB rather than KBPS.
If you get time, go here and download the "50MB HTTP Download". While it's downloading, about a quarter of the way through, you should see the KB number next to "Transfer Rate" stablize to a pretty consistent number. What KB transfer rate does it stablize at?
You can just delete the file after it's downloaded.
