  1. I keep reading online about all of these methods to get this done but I see that I need stuff like Ubuntu? or dsmasq? I don't know what the heck these things are.... I just want to be able to use the DNS service to store stuff automatically in my host file (I guess this is how it would work) then when I want to delete it I would just "flushdns". Is there any way to get this done? Do I have to install Ubuntu or some other stuff? My OS is Microsoft Windows XP SP3.
  2. I currently have it enabled but I noticed Van Buren wrote in a reply (see this link..http://www.testmy.net/t-3924.msg62649#msg62649 ) that if you have FIOS over PPPoE (1492 MTU) the pathMTU detection should not be enabled. Does this still stand true?
  3. I did change it to 1492 MTU and 1452 MSS. Should I change it back??? I am not sure what I am doing here???
  4. According to this guy it is possible? ...but he doesn't say how?
  5. I haven't. I have been using 1500/1460 that I manually changed but I do have Verizon Fios PPPoe.
  6. mudmanc4, thanks for the link! I actually have that link as a favorite/bookmark and have "played" with it on my end. I have been trying to see what works best for high performance. I am as much concerned with download speed as I am with web site download speed. I am looking for instantaneousnous (is that even a word...? ) Anyhow, at testmy.net my current download speed is... :::.. Download Stats ..::: Download Connection is:: 20056 Kbps about 20.1 Mbps (tested with 102391 kB) Download Speed is:: 2448 kB/s Tested From:: https://testmy.net/ (Main) Test Time:: 2009/03/14 - 10:00pm Bottom Line:: 350X faster than 56K 1MB Download in 0.42 sec Tested from a 102391 kB file and took 41.822 seconds to complete Download Diagnosis:: Awesome! 20% + : 245.44 % faster than the average for host (verizon.net) D-Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-JOG5SYEI4 User Agent:: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv: Gecko/2009021910 Firefox/3.0.7 [!]
  7. On the Verizon Help and Support section (I have Verizon FIos 20/5), it states the following... "TCP 1323 Extensions - This parameter enables enhancements to the TCP/IP protocol that provide improved performance over high speed connections." I am trying to find out what these are and how I can tweak them (what are the good tweaks, etc.). Anyone have any info...?
  8. I have it now at static IP and it still comes back when I do a search on what's my IP. I found out that this is my external IP address. I just want my external IP address to be located closer to my state.
  9. I did your second suggestion BUT, after I delete the adapter then I had trouble. I had to go to Windows File Checker and install my Windows CD then I had to go to the i386 folder for the adapter to reinstall it...which I did. aaaaannnnndddd....... SAME @*&$^*!!
  10. I noticed in Device Manager when I clicked on View>Show Hidden Devices under Network adapters all of a sudden instead of ONLY having the Intel® PRO/100 VE Network Connection 7 MORE ADAPTERS APPEAR (and they only appear when I click on show Hidden Devices. Plus they are not greyed out. I have a picture of them attached in word. The additional adapters are: Direct Parallel RAS Async Adapter WAN Miniport (IP) Wan Miniport (IP) - Packet Scheduler Miniport Wan Miniport (L2TP) WAN Miniport (PPPOE) Wan Miniport (PPTP)
  11. I attempted to change the MAC address and in the Locally Administered Address section it had no value and what was automatically chosen was "Not Present" I then manually entered a value and changed it by changing the last two digits from 51 to 52 then I had no connection whatsoever. I then went back in and cleared the value section and chose "Not Present" but it did not change anything. I had a connection again but the same I want to try your second suggestion BUT, if I delete the adapter then I won't have an adapter to setup a new connection will I? Or does the computer automatically have one?
  12. I am still coming up with this as my IP address. I am a standalone PC. No Network. How can I see if I am configured as a Network...? I have almost exhausted every idea....but I know that there is an answer there...
  13. Man zalternate! You are the Man to give me these pics! I am going to put mine exactly like yours and see what happens.
  14. I don't have "Append these DNS suffixes (in order)" chosen. That's all empty. I have "Append primary and connection specific DNS suffixes" chosen. Should I check on the "Append parent suffixes of the primary DNS suffix"?
