  1. Contact AT&T's Office of the President in Texas- # is online. I persevered to where I obtained the direct #s for some of their top brass, including the regional managers for the Midwest, Marisa Harper, and SE, Richard Burns. My issues were resolved. I'll send you a msg with my email for specifics.

  2. FYI, I have a top manager at my ISP, AT&T, on the record stating that the minimum acceptable speed on my 45 Mbps connection is 24 Mbps. Unfortunately, only speedtest.net results are considered. I spoke to his boss, Richard Burns, and told him about TMN. He said he would pass it up the chain.

  3. For my fellow members, I offer a very good article on how to tweak these settings manually. This one is "from the horse's mouth", so to speak, @ /support.microsoft.com/kb/93444. Novices should probably stick with a tool like TCP Optimizer. My other devices are tweaked, too, with similar results.

  4. Also, there is some disparity with my other devices, but not as much. All other devices are tweaked to the max. We geeks have been doing this for decades through the Windows registry via 'regedit'.

    My area was a test market for TWC 'Roadrunner' in '95. My desktop runs mid 30s on, and low 20s off. 

  5. Update for smart TV: cannot download TCP stack optimizer as this device has

    no hard drive, but it runs about 14 Mbps with multithreading disabled and 34+ Mbps enabled. Is this a reason for concern, or is this simply a limitation of the device?? I'm not an expert, but I would say the latter.

  6. Hey, Pgoodwin1- what is a Sophist Member?

    Also, I remember my sister buying a rig from Micron Electronics in 1998 'cause I was out of state. When I got back, they had given her a new populated motherboard and hard drive, so I was tasked with re-installing ALL the software- 6 cd's for Office alone!

  7.  Hey, guys...  I remember trying out the old speedtest.net back in '96 or '97 (maybe '98- I'm retired and inaccurate...). Anyhow, even back then it was obvious to tech guys (nerds, then) that the "flash" protocol was not efficient in quantifying throughput speed.
