  1. Call time warner and request someone come check your lines.  I just did, and even though over the phone they said the modem was fine, it wasn't.  I'm now at 3 mbps, finally the right range for what they advertise.  :-)

  2. This is hilarious! 

    Ok, I wanted to see how much aol affects my speeds.  I'm not going to change away from aol because I've had the same email since 95 and would like to keep it that way.  However, I do use trillian for all my im needs, so I really just use it for the interface with email...so I'm going to uninstall here in a bit to see how it changes.  However...This is what happened just now.

    I signed off and closed aol, then tested my speed.  With trillian running, my speed was about .8M.  So I closed trillian, waited, and my speed dropped to .5M!  I was like, what the hell is that?!  So I signed trillian back on.  My speed jumped up to 1.1 M!  Then I closed aol's Port Magic, and my speed jumped up to 1.3, where it was at it's peak yesterday.  I closed trillian and again it dropped, and when I open it I get more speed. 

    So does trillian modify the registry when it's open and closed?  Because this seems really wierd!  I mean, it's good, more speed, but odd. 

    My router is from compUSA and is the bare bones router/4port switch.  Port magic called it an SMR br, which doesn't say that much.  Actually, here's the link for the router.  http://fmi.compusa.com/driver.asp?SKU=313831

    Hope that helps.

    Also, thanks to everyone again for all the help.  I'm learning quite a bit, and so many things I didn't think about affecting my speed are popping into my head now.  :-)

    Hopefully uninstalling aol, running cablenut again, will jump my speed up to normal rr speeds...

  3. Thank you!  I tried that setup, and it didn't help.

    Could this be an issue with my router?  I have a generic compusa router/4 port switch.  Obviously I'm not a big tech guru.  Thanks for any help you can give. 

  4. Hi.  I'm new to this site, and have found improvement using cablenut, but I'm hoping someone can give me some more help. 

    I'm using roadrunner through time warner.  My connection speed itself isn't bad, but the download isn't good at all.  Here's my info:

    I downloaded the cablenut 7 files, but I'm not sure what my router has as settings off the top of my head.  I'm running windows xp (SP2), McAfee firewall. 

    Here are my tweaktest results:

    That's all I can think of right now.  Thanks!
