    It's most likely because you're in the UK.

    I should be adding a UK and Asia server by the end of the year.

    My bandwidth provider has extensive peering to the UK so the tests here will still give you a very good idea what your speeds are to most servers (since many major sites are hosted in the US). When the data has to travel nearly 6000 miles, across the ocean... over about 30 hops (I pulled a trace on your IP) you'll never be able to max out.

    Unlike some other test sites testmy.net does not rely on donated servers. For quality control I like to maintain everything myself. But because of that fact there is a heavy price that I have to pay to host such servers. I recently upgraded the main server, it's way over powered.. just how I like it. I just need to get the extra money together to pick up a few more servers.

    I'll most likely be picking up a European server first. My host has a datacenter in London so that's most likely where it will be hosted... I should have that one nailed down in the next 30-60 days, so there's something to look forward to. Keep checking back, once that's up and running it will be very apparent... notices will be shown to all users that can benefit from that server and traffic will eventually be automatically routed to the closest server to the end user.

    I just contacted my account rep with my host. Depending on the deal we work out it may be up even sooner.

    Yeah Mud, what’s up with that? I suffered through some anomalous tests results when our latest and greatest TMN iteration was in its “your mileage may vary” phase, but if I was popping ULs like yours I might look at some quicker alternatives—maybe an acoustical-coupled modem on your landline?

    My Cox Ultimate seems to be even quicker now, but I don’t want to bore y’all with the details…NOT!

    planetleomars reacted to VanBuren in Windows Vista Tcp Tweak   
    Windows Vista has a self tuned RWIN, and it works fine, Microsoft hasn't realeased much info about specific TCP registry keys yet, but i been testing some of the keys from windows XP. Turned out the DefaultSendWindow also works with Vista.

    The things you need to do if you have Vista and cant reach 90% of advertised speed, beside the points in this sticky is

    1. Make sure TCP autotuning is enabled, go to start-run paste this " netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=normal " and hit enter.
    2. Download and install Cablenut cablenut408.zip
    3. Disable UAC, go to start-run and type msconfig, click on tools tab and scroll down to "disable UAC" click on it and then click Launch. Reboot your PC.
    3. Download and unzip this uploadtweak VanBurens_cablenut_settings_all_versions.zip , just click on the ccs file and click save to registry in adjuster, If cablenut ask for a OS when your trying to apply the settings, use Windows 2000.
    4. Reboot your PC
    5. Test speed again

    good luck

    planetleomars reacted to cblguyfl in tweaking direcway 6000   
    i just got direcway and wanted to know how to download and configure tcp optimizer and also to find out if this is the best tweak for increasing the speed or if there's a better one?
    also, if i try to test my speed at http://nitro.ucsc.edu/ it's failing the inbound test and posts this:
    TCP/Web100 Network Diagnostic Tool v5.2.1e
    click START to begin
    Checking for Middleboxes . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .  Done
    running 10s outbound test (client to server) . . . . . 1.45Mb/s
    running 10s inbound test (server to client) . . . . . . Server failed: 'Go' flag not received
    any help will be appreciated. thanks.

    i'm in a remote location where connetion normally drops out every 5-15 mins and connection is a bit slow.
    Before i get 30-50 kbps.

    Here's my speed now:

    Download Connection is:: 1036 Kbps about 1.04 Mbps (tested with 1024 kB)

    Upload Speed is:: 20 kB/s

    Not bad for a remote location.

    THIS how you tweak smartbro to be able to get a stable and faster connection

    1. Assign the TCP/IP Manually.

    To be able to see what your IP, Subnet, and the default gateway, again go to Control Panel and then look for the Local Area Connection and then right click on it and choose Status and then click Support Tab, and then click Details, and there you will see the complete information of your IP address, Subnet Mask, Gateway, and DNS servers. Now you will have to copy and save those information on a paper or maybe a notepad and save it somewhere in your computer, because you will be needing those information later.


    For Windows XP:

    GO TO RUN, then TYPE CMD, TYPE IPCONFIG.And copy the same details.

    2. How To Change Your DNS Servers?

    Step 1. Go to Control Panel > Network Connections > Local Area Connection > General Tab > Properties > TCP/IP.

    Step 2. Use the information that you saved earlier on each of the respective information. IP address, Subnet Mask, Gateway, and DNS ( &

    FOR DNS: You can choose on the SELECTIONS BELOW.

    Here are the DNS address that i have tried...
    1. Google
    2. ScrubIt
    Public dns server address:

    3. dnsadvantage
    Dnsadvantage free dns server list:

    4. OpenDNS
    OpenDNS free dns server list:

    5. vnsc-pri.sys.gtei.net
    Public Name server IP address:


    After you TYPED the DNS, Click on ADVANCED on the bottom right. and refer on the steps below.

    - just tick like whats in the pic.

    - just tick like whats in the pic.

    - just tick like whats in the pic.
    After all the steps followed., click OK then disbled/ enable LAN.

    Step 3. After placing in the right information, double check and then click OK on both Pop Up windows that opened.

    Step 4. Go back to Control Panel > Network Connections. Now Right-Click on Local Area Connection and then click Repair. This is to refresh the connection and DNS servers that your connection will use.
    Step 5. Now you can check the difference of the speed through www.testmy.net and compare what difference it made since using the default DNS servers of your Internet Provider.
