Whe n I was on hughes, the best mine ran was keeping scans often, defraged, diskcleaned, and keeping the modem discharged with the finger to the tip where the cable goes into it. Other than that not sure.

Does hughes now have a 768 package?

Yes, sometimes it goes that way. Personally I was on the 500/50 plan, and got 1030/50 most time. It depends really.

There you go, and there are many who will say that using the TCP Optimizer is worthless. That as a self hosted system it can't help.  [nerdly]

But it worked for me too when I had hughes.  :wink:

yeah i have ran both, cablenut and tcp Now, and i notice a difference with TCP, and nothing really with cablenut.

did cablenut work for you when you had hughes?

No, cablenut and firefox actually both slowed mine down. I did best with TCP Optimizer and IE6 at the time. Like I said, I got 1030/80 with a 500/50. Except in the afternoons.

it seems to me i get the Best(700-1mb) in the mornings, afternoon- about 9pm i get anywhere from 100kb-600kb.

but when i do the tcp opt. it only lasts for a little?? like it will run pretty fast and then go back to 500ish or so.

Only one time when a hughes tech was playing with it. But I usually was at 60 if I remember right.
