  2. with all the talk of antivirus slowing pc's down. Has anyone ever thought of just turning it on when you are going to download something? Then turning it off after...
  3. Start by compiling test logs of that speed, tons of them. Then call your ISP daily complaining. Have techs come out regularly to trouble shoot. If you're lucky it's something simple in your house. If not keep complaing LOUDLY until something is done. That's what I had to do, turned out my streets were'nt up to date. Took 2 years for me to figure out that I had to kick and scream(figuratively) , and keep records of the speeds I was recieving, to get the right peoples attention... GL
  4. I went through 3 years of complaints before my squeeky wheel got greased...
  5. I used the calculator with good success, ty it. Never recieved any help on the forums here about good comcast configs, so went with calc...
  6. JUST TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA OF WHERE TO BEGIN... I was on a 6 DL and 1.5 UL package, but i was only hitting .6 DL and always staying at 1.5 UL. Short of it is, my neighborhood network was way out of date. It took 3 years of complaining to Comcast for a fix . 1st (for you) will need to track your speeds continously and record them. 2. (for you) have to insure your pc is not the problem: running clean, no virus, or software conflicts. 3. (your isp's duty) is focusing on your homes network: cabling, spliters, tie to the street. 4. (ips's duty) is your area network: nodes, nocs, this is where a "big problem" is. After 3 years of complaints, and being told it was always my home network. Send a tech out time after time only to test a clean setup... They finally gave in and updated the block! 3 years mind you!!! Since then it's fine. BUT bare in mind that during the times of problematic service, cablenut and van buren settings only brought my DL up. It actually reduced my UL massively. I'd suggest giving it a try, to see if it is a fix. Maybe it will work fine, never know. But prepare for the worst and expect to continually complain to your ISP until a fix is implimented...
  7. LOL sweet a buck fix! That's awesome, if it doesn't an internal card is relatively cheap too, let's say maybe 20 of those buck fixes
  8. Lol ya my 1st guess would be someone moved your balance to the right. If you are running off your motherboards sound hardware, your fix (after you've run through system settings) is to buy a soundcard and run it i'd guess.
  9. I'm not familiar with Cox seeing as though my isp is Comcast. But it took a looong time and alot of complaining for them to update my street. worst case scenario is your area network is out of date like mine. If youre lucky its a simple static issue within your house network ie: cabling kinks or bad spliter. Cox will start there if its not your pc, modem or router. have they ran any tests on there end checking to see if your modem is in the red? thats the first check point... One thing i noticed a long while back, when i did the cablenut tweaks. My neighborhood was out of date and sluggish, but i was able to (with cablenut) bring my download speeds way up. Strangly at the cost of my upload drastically... once my neighborhood was updated (2.5 years of complaining constantly) i was able to not only hit my upload, but with cablenut exceed it greatly (along with download of course). so you need a starting point ie: multi pc's to check speed at your home, to eliminate your given machine. secondly cox needs to check your modem and look for any red flags ie: feed back. next would be cable or splitter issues. lastly, after a lot of complaining, they just miiight check your area network for any issues. GL
  10. I used the calculator, plug in your data and do the tracert for latency, the settings are auto generated. Then just save to REG... I can get the UL to 2.9 so far. http://www.j79zlr.com/cablenutXP2k.php
  11. Nice, I haven't broke 30 yet...
  12. so i called and complained, again, about speed slowdown. as usual they send out a tech the next day (i did however get a free month out of it)... so the tech shows at 3pm, i make him well aware of the speed issue time frame. thankfully when the tech was out front my neighbor complained about slow dl's and glitchy cable too. so it's not just my feed from the street. he calls supervisor, and between the super and a engineer they are going to show up here and speed check at the "aledged time frame". so far it sound like a clear network issue in the area. i say call and complain everyday, keep speed tests everyday to prove it, and rally the neibs hopefully for a resolution lol...we'll see how it pans out.
  13. every night around 7pm, my 8meg service drops to a1meg. it'll stay that way till 1 am or so. like clockwork every night, and comcast says my service shows no issues... side note to that my upload never dips at all, stays a steady 1.5...
  14. i'm in washington, on the 8mb plan. ive dabbled in cablenut along with the calculator. my downloads climbed nicely, but my upload crashed something fierce. i've tried many ccs files with no luck, everytime i stray from original settings my upload falls to .2 instead of 1.5. does anyone have ccs file thats working well for up and down?
  15. actually its 15 out of about 60 that are 3 and higher, but in 6 months it'll look different lol.
  16. are you talkning about his cpu chipset? and a 3 isnt faster than a 1.6 eh, are they exact same system setups? same chipset? actually almost 50% of 775 chipset cores hit 3 and up, and of the other 50% youre looking at maybe 20% of those being able to OC to 3. so buying in the 1 range doesnt seem effective to me is all.
  17. Hey willy just my two cents... If you're going to upgrade a video card to that magnitude, I'd consider your cpu upgrade to be at 3.0 or higher. Anything below 3 is going to start falling behind very soon unfortunately ;(
  18. found this interesting tidbit on getting the correct MTU for your connection. Also note router change at bottom of page. Don't think this is going to speed us up, but it will definately smooth things out. http://www.dslreports.com/faq/5793
  19. hehehe i'll say! whatever it is, the download becomes truly impressive with cablenut and calculator. it's just my steady 1.5 upload turned into a steady .2 after the tweak. and there lies my problem, i guess maybe i'll try running calculator again, see if some different properties come up... oh and i found this little gem on the forums here, brilliant tutorial on XP. ive trimmed my processes to 14 doing the blackviper tutorial (which is only cashed now). it is the second part of this post coincidentally, "bv" is a little easier to follow. but the 1st half of the post was very useful!!! thought i'd include it here in case some of us haven't stumbled onto it http://www.testmy.net/t-11849 (I SUGGEST POWER USER COLUMN. and remember NOT turning off services in MSCONFIG only pertains to XP services, by all means kill your 3rd party software installed here to free up hardware resources ) http://www.codecavalier.com/blackviper/WinXP/servicecfg.htm
  20. ya youre not alone there with Comcast complaints lol. i had a tech come out, run a new line from the street after many haggling phone calls. the next tech that came was suppose to run a new line from box to inside. well it was 5pm and he wanted to get home so he spliced in crawl space under the jack n ran a new line to a new spot in wall. needless to say i was freakn pissed , my house is outdated ?"57"? cabling. not to mention original cable runner kinked the livin piss out of it lol! as my system stands right now, my obviously overloaded node drops my download to 1kpbs in the evening, sucks terribly. so i figure if i can boost up and down, at least im sittin in a better place... fios is just a block away from my street and im itching for it terribly! NO MORE COPPER!!! but until then id like to not be held back by isp when gaming... and if anyone can help me with custom cablenut ccs file for Comcast it would be greatly appreciated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  21. k then the next question is what should i change in my settings, to bring up to par if not bypass the standard for upload? has knowone encountered problems with powerboost and cablenut?
  22. OK, here is what the cablenut and the calculator came up with for my system and connection. im running xp service pack2, amd athlonx57 oc'ed, 2gigs RAM, 2-80gig hardrives RAID0, 512GTX graphics card, xp trimmed to 14 processes. i am at 6 download and 1.5 upload with speedboost (so im told). below settings put me at 13 download and .2 upload. i have reverted to the cable_normal_2k ccs file, and my speeds are normal again. with below settings is there a reason my upload crashed after implemented???
