  1. Retest using the 12160 KB download test!
  2. I found these values in my routers web page under the Status tab. I have a Home LAN so I am not clear as to what the, WLAN and WAN is referring to and why is there apparently some signal in these areas. I thank you for your assistance. Your Friend, compuworm LAN (rx/tx) : 374.85 K (1.23 K/s) 2.69 M (10.64 K/s) WLAN (rx/tx) : 0 (0.00 K/s) 202.19 K (0.07 K/s) WAN (rx/tx) : 6.13 M (2.16 K/s) 194.81 K (0.01 K/s)
  3. What ccs file did you apply to the cablenut program? OK lets try another program go to the link below and download this program: https://www.speedguide.net/downloads.php Make sure you open the cablenut program and click the, Delete Cablenut Tweaks", button. Then hit the, Exit button. Now open the SG TCP Optimizer program and select all that I have selected according to the image I have attached for you. Make sure you click the, Apply Changes button. Restart your computer and again post speed settings.
  4. Reapply the cablenut settings. In other words open the cablenut program and just hit the, "Save to Registry", button. Restart the computer and post speed tests again. Thanks. Download this: http://www.freedownloadscenter.com/Reviews/r2333.html
  5. You have a NIC to which your Modem is connected. You need to find out if this is set to 10 full duplex or 100 full duplex. Press and hold down the, " Alt" key and double click your, My Computer icon. This should bring up the Device Manager Window. Look at the devices listed and click on the plus sign next to the Network Adapter. This should show you your network Card. Double click on this device and this should open your NIC window. Click the Advance tap and select, Media Type and the value should be shown. If it is set at 100Base TX full duplex try changing the setting to 10baseT full duplex. Click, OK and restart your computer and power cycle your modem. Then try your speed test again and post. Sincerely, compuworm
  6. Do you know how to access your Modem web page? Try typing into your browers address bar and see if this opens your modems web page. If so what are the upload and download power levels?
  7. A good spyware program to start with is, "Spybot Search & Destroy", is absolutely free. http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html Also, another good freeware is CCleaner (love it) http://www.ccleaner.com You can also download, "XoftSpy", this is not a freeware and the program only allows for scans but it will show if there are any problems such as Trojans on your system. It found the Hook.dll Trojan for me and I used Spybot to get rid of it. http://www.paretologic.com/xoftspy/lp/13/ I hope I have helped. Your Friend, compuworm
  8. Thats part of the humor! Well, for some of us!
  9. If you downloaded the cablenut program you then use Vanburen's files to load into the cablenut program. So if you know what your download/upload speeds your ISP is providing then select the Vanburen ccs file that is a match to what your ISP provides. If u are not behind a router no further discussion is needed for that topic further. first step open the Cablenut Program (exe). Second step, go to file menu and select, "Open Custom Setttings File". Third step, browse to where u downloaded the Vanburen Cablenut settings and load the ccs file that matches what your ISP offers you now. Forth step, once you select the file Click the, "Open", button of the Open dialog box. Fifth step, once the values appear in the cablenut program (Manual Tweak Screen) click the, "Save to Registry". button in the lower righer hand corner of the program. There u did it. You now improved your TCP/IP connections.
  10. This may seem like an obvious question but have you done any tweaking to your system specifically for your TCP/IP connections? Are u behind a router, do you have the latest firmware? Are you using Vanburen's Cablenut settings with the Cablenut program? Sincerely, compuworm P.S. Resopalrabotnick,. is absolutely correct this sounds like a bunch of BS to me DO NOT REFORMAT.
  11. Did you download Vanburen's v7 cable settings? If so the file is there you need to download the cablenut program itselt. Look carfully at my last post and go to the first link and I believe it is step 15 or so. Below is the cable program link: http://www.cablenut.com/
  12. Go to these links and follow suggestions. I have a wrt54gs router and use hyperwrt firmware and have done everthing detailed in the below posts. My download speed is about 7000kbps and I am on the same plan you are on with comcast. http://www.testmy.net/forum/index.php?topic=2097.0 http://www.testmy.net/forum/index.php?topic=3924.0 compuwom
  13. Ok, what firmware are u running on the router. Have u done any tweaking to increase your up/down speeds?
  14. Perhaps just perhaps too much emphasis is being placed on learning through computers. They are indeed a great tool but really how much to we actually learn and what is it that they help us learn. I remember a Harvard study some years ago now (I tried to find it) where two large groups of freshmen engineering college students participated in this study. One group could use computers (as is standard in most colleges) in their course of study throughout college and the second had no use what so ever of computers. I suppose they (Harvard) fell back to a 1950's model of education where the emphasis was more hands-on? At the end of the college, post graduation, testing of both groups included giving each engineering group (as I remember) the same set of problems solve. Again one group had computers to aid in their problem solving whereas group two did not. Testing took place at the same. The results where amazing not only did the hands-on group solve all there testing problems proposed by the Harvard group but they also accomplished it in given time frame. Engineering group two could not solve a single problem in the given time frame. In the end (again as I remember) the study concluded that computers can't or has a diminished ability to help us to learn how to model in our minds. It seemed that tactile and sensory experience gained by group two, such as having to use their minds to see, rotate, and their hands drawing models of the objects, more clearly helped them to focus their minds thus giving them greater problem solving abilities. Please don't get me wrong, I love computers and I am not knocking them. Hell, I own two laptops, and three desktops. Further, my memoirs of the study go back a long way so I apologize if any of the details are incorrect. In inclusion, I don't believe the World's Poorest need computers to get connected. Hell, isn't just staying alive a rather large issue. A hundred dollars might as well be a million to them and where in the world would they get it? Here in lies the greatest question to be answered . Where would seeminly penniless people get money to pay for a one hundred dollar laptop? Who would be behind making sure they got that money and why? Your Friend, compuworm
  15. What firmware do you have on your router MasterZymo? Have you tired upgrading your firmware to hyperwrt? You will need to register then go to downloads. http://www.testmy.net/forum/index.php?topic=10077.0 Also, look at this link: http://www.testmy.net/forum/index.php?topic=10128.0 I hope I have been of help. compuworm
  16. Shame on you ROM-DOS, Mr. Barrett is only looking after the needs of the world's poorest. How the heck does Barrett know World's poorest don't want a '$100 laptop'? I will tell you how he knows, just look at the Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs Pyramid (see attachment). The man is only trying to help and look after the welfare of those less fortunite then him. The man is a saint for god sake!
  17. What was the problem and how did you fix it? What firmware version are u running now? Thanks, compuworm
  18. This is some damn good information regarding linksys routers especially if you are thinking about purchasing one soon. If you can't view the site below just register @ http://www.linksysinfo.org/index.php Then come back to this link: http://www.linksysinfo.org/modules.php?name=Content&pa=showpage&pid=6. Sincerely, compuworm
  19. This site given by chief_osceloa is out of date I dont even go there anymore because the Firmware listed there is not based on linksys's new firmware like 4.70.6 instead it is based on older linksys firmware. Instead go here and register. Then go to, "Downloads" and look under the router that you have and you can download the newest Firmware based on 4.70.6 for your router. http://www.linksysinfo.org/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewforum&f=25 If you have version 1, wrt54gs make sure you download the WRT54GS with Hyperwrt 4.70.6-201105 (Thibor) Firmware it is for versions 1-4. Your Friend, compuworm
  20. Try typing inro your browers address bar and this might open your modems web page.
  21. Are u using a router (model # and manufacturer) . What are the settings of your cable modem set to? Open your cable modem web page and what is your upstream and downstream power settings? Thanks, compuworm
  22. Thanks, I updated from the site you provided and I now have 1.5 and its working great. Thanks again. Your Friend, compuworm
