  1. Thanks, but I don't see any folder named: Cable & DSL 6000 768.ccs There are several folders and the one for cable is the one I opened.. There seem to be about four settings and I opened the first one, which is the fast 2K, or something like that.. I saved those changes to the registry already, so not sure where to go from there..
  2. Thanks.. any ideas on how I can tweak my connection some more? Before the crash, I consistently had much better readings.. The problem with Cablenut is that it doesn't give enough step by step for the novice.. JK
  3. The hard drive on my 16 mo. old P4 desktop failed a week or so ago, and I had a technician install a new one. Simultaneously, I was under the impression that my broadband provider (Comcast) increased the speed on the connection to 6 mb/384 kbps. I installed Cablenut again, but the speed seems off and inconsistent. Here's the today's speed test: :::.. Download Stats ..::: Connection is:: 4085 Kbps about 4.1 Mbps (tested with 2992 kB) Download Speed is:: 499 kB/s Tested From:: https://testmy.net/ (server2) Test Time:: Mon Oct 10 08:25:56 PDT 2005 Bottom Line:: 73X faster than 56K 1MB download in 2.05 sec Diagnosis: 90% + Okay : running at 93.48 % of your hosts average (comcast.net) Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-WD4T75USO I'm running Win 2K on my AMD 64 machine. Only software installed is Office XP, Goldmine, Thunderbird (email) and of course, Spyware Blaster, Ad Aware SE and Crap Cleaner.. Any ideas? Jonathan
  4. Thanks.. much appreciated.. do they make one that's a bit more affordable? I only use one port for periodic data exchange, as I do not have multiple PC's networked.. Just something simple as firewall protection (NAT).. Jonathan
  5. I have been using a D-Link wired router model DI-704 and it appears something burned out on it, as it reduces my speed by about 80% when I run my broadband through it.. My computer guy says this is normal since it's running constantly and it's old. I guess I have to replace it now for firewall protection and am wondering which wired cable/dsl router is the best, as well as most economical. I use a wired router since my laptop and desktop have Goldmine Contact manager loaded on them and I do a data synch regularly. Front Range, developer of Goldmine, says synching with a wirless router can be challenging.. I run a P4 desktop with Win 2K and an IBM P3 laptop also with Win 2K.. Any recommendations for a new router/firewall? I use Comcast broadband and get 3 mb down, 256k up.. Thanks. Jonathan
  6. Thanks.. so I presume I should leave the tweak settings where they are rather than change the one that Speedy Final mentioned?
  7. It's supposed to be 3 mb down and 256 kbps up.. or something similar to that..
  8. OK.. have installed the tweaks and here's the test results: :::.. Download Stats ..::: Connection is:: 2982 Kbps about 3 Mbps (tested with 2992 KB) Download Speed is:: 364 KB/s Tested From:: http://www.testmy.net/ Test Time:: Sat Feb 5 10:28:27 PST 2005 Bottom Line:: 53X faster than 56K 1MB download in 2.81 sec Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/id-ZKSJDH352 :::..

Any suggestions?
  9. Sorry, but am having difficulty following your directions.. When I open the Adjuster, then go to File, the menu says "Open Custom Settings File". When I click there, the folder is "CCS" and when I click on this, the options are "Cable, DSL, etc".. Not sure where to go as when I go to the cable folder it has about 4 choices there.. What am I doing that's different from your instructions as it's not the same.. Thanks again..
  10. OK.. thanks.. Here's the URL: http://ttester.broadbandreports.com/tweak/block:485845a?service=cable&speed=3200&os=win2k&via=normal It seems it's OK according to the test.. Let me know your thoughts..
  11. Thanks.. of many of the things on the list, I have done these, except the Cablenut tweaks. I have not downloaded this program nor changed the settings. I am not a geek and am a little nervous about using this program especially if it causes any system problems. I run Win 2K on my Athlon 64 system with plenty of RAM etc.. I have used Crap Cleaner often, and have Ad Aware and Spyware Blaster too.. I just changed the NIC card settings to 100mb full duplex as stated, since I use a DLink router between the modem and nic card.. If you can assist with the Cablenut deal in order that I don't disrupt a system that runs well, I'd appreciate it.. Other than that, all firmware is the latest and my Win 2K is fully updated and scanned of viruses or spyware. Thanks!
  12. I'm brand new here and would like to see if I can increase my speed.. My system is an Athlon 64 running at 2.8 ghz, 512 mb RAM, with Win 2K. I have Comcast and use a D-Link hub as a firewall. Comcast just installed a new Terayon modem and it's plugged inot the D-Link, then into my NIC card. Here's the speed result tests: :::.. Download Stats ..::: Connection is:: 2589 Kbps about 2.6 Mbps (tested with 1496 KB) Download Speed is:: 316 KB/s Tested From:: http://www.testmy.net/ Test Time:: Sat Feb 5 08:11:57 PST 2005 Bottom Line:: 46X faster than 56K 1MB download in 3.24 sec Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/id-T8V1HY9S0 I also posted my HiJack This log on Virtual Doctor and the geeks there said it looks good.. Let me know what you think.. Jonathan
