another help me topic


Recommended Posts

Hi I read the sticky and I just wanted some help with my connection so that it would go faster, like everyone else here. Here's all the info that Van Buren requested.

1. Windows XP

2. Verizon DSL.

3. just ran the testmy test.

TCP options string = 020405ac01010402

MTU = 1492

MTU is optimized for PPoE DSL broadband. If not, consider raising MTU to 1500 for optimal throughput.

MSS = 1452

MSS is optimized for PPPoE DSL broadband. If not, consider raising your MTU value.

Default Receive Window (RWIN) = 65535

RWIN Scaling (RFC1323) = 0 bits

Unscaled Receive Window = 65535

Note: TCP 1323 Options need to be enabled for RWIN over 2^16 (65535). Windows 9x might also need the MS Vtcp386 fix.

For optimum performance, consider changing RWIN to a multiple of MSS.

Other values for RWIN that might work well with your current MTU/MSS:

511104 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 8)

255552 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 4)

127776 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 2)

63888 (MSS x 44)

bandwidth * delay product (Note this is not a speed test):

Your RcvWindow limits you to: 2621.4 kbps (327.675 KBytes/s) @ 200ms

Your RcvWindow limits you to: 1048.56 kbps (131.07 KBytes/s) @ 500ms

MTU Discovery (RFC1191) = ON

Time to live left = 121 hops

TTL value is ok.

Timestamps (RFC1323) = OFF

Selective Acknowledgements (RFC2018) = ON

IP type of service field (RFC1349) = 00000000 (0)

4. Here's the test from testmy.net

:::.. Download Stats ..:::

Connection is:: 2247 Kbps about 2.2 Mbps (tested with 2992 kB)

Download Speed is:: 274 kB/s

Tested From:: https://testmy.net/ (server2)

Test Time:: Thu, 29 Dec 2005 16:31:57 GMT-0500

Bottom Line:: 40X faster than 56K 1MB download in 3.74 sec

Diagnosis: May need help : running at only 48.04 % of your hosts average (verizon.net)

Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-P3I9A2RGH

The current time is: 16:45:08.49

Which one depends on the advertised speeds of your connection. What does your ISP say you should haved for a download and upload speed? You're on verizon and you most likely aren't a FIOS customer I'd say you are on a 3000/768 connection. choose the file that most closely matches that or try the attached file:

Cable will have an MTU of 1500, while DSL/PPPoE will have an MTU of 1492.

Fiberoptic just means the signal is carried via light(Fios for example is fiberoptic)

Since you are on DSL, you will need cablenut settings that are based on an MTU of 1492.

I attached a file that you can try out...Let us know what works for you...You may need to try a few to find the one that works best for you...Remember you need to reboot each time for settings to take effect.. ;)

alright i tried that tweak file you gave me. The upload is pretty good

:::.. Upload Stats ..:::

Connection is:: 565 Kbps about 0.6 Mbps (tested with 579 kB)

Upload Speed is:: 69 kB/s

Tested From:: https://testmy.net/ (server1)

Test Time:: Fri, 30 Dec 2005 18:30:17 GMT-0500

Bottom Line:: 10X faster than 56K 1MB upload in 14.84 sec

Diagnosis: May need help : running at only 89.12 % of your hosts average (verizon.net)

Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-XLKHTIG8F

but...the download still sucks.

:::.. Download Stats ..:::

try this, some dsl connections have problems with large DefaultReceiveWindow

keep all settings as you have, just change DefaultReceiveWindow from 255552 to 63888

click save to registry and reboot your PC

Edit: if that dosent do the trick, try increasing it to 127776

VanBuren :)

thanks but is that specifically for upload or download? My upload is fine now but the download still hasn't gotten better. I'm going to try increasing it to 127776...maybe it'll increase my upload? cuz now testmy says it's only running at 41 percent (1970 Kbps) of the advertised speeds

or try these files

one is from my custom files version 7 the other is just a test, its well known that dsl is way harder to tweak then other connections, so have patience  ;)

remember to click "save to registry" everytime you make a change or load a new file, also you need to reboot every time

thanks Van Buren  :)  but i don't think they changed much = /. Any more tweak files I should try? i'm getting the same results over and over again: download hasn't gotten better but upload is good. I tried to tweak one of the files myself and made the default receive window 63888 and the default send window 98304. Should I make the numbers smaller or bigger and what effect does that have? oh and about the firewalls...does it inflate the dl results? i'm using norton and i'm not sure if that's why the results are inflated. I turned it off after but i'm just curious.

as suggested, disable firewall during speedtest

also run this linequality test

http://www.dslreports.com/tools

"Line Packet Loss Testing

Packet loss tests on your line, including identification of any problem routers en-route to you.. (see also bad router list). "

post result link

also how far away from CO are you?

VanBuren :)

insideout, I see from the trace that there is a loss between the router (192) and the modem (10).  A firmware upgrade of the router or a new cable may resolve this.  However, to troubleshoot your connection further, can you make a direct connection from you computer to the modem and perform another traceroute and speedtest?

Nah, trace is just fine. 

When you are using cablenut, are you doing it like this: loading the .ccs file, clicking save to registry, rebooting your PC and then testing again? 

Be sure to use the file provided and make sure you are doing it properly.  Did you shut down your firewall for the test?  Scan for spyware?  Run ccleaner to debug your reg?  It's all in the STICKY.

didn't do the cc cleaner or scan for spyware..that stuff never pops up. i dunno why.

Got a popup blocker? :haha:  Sometimes spyware will install popup blockers (in IE, go to view --> toolbars --> and see what's there).  But popups are not the only form, that's more adware.  You may have tracking cookies, malware, loggers, worms, trojans....the list goes on and on, and they'll all affect your speed and overall PC performance.  The only way to really know if you've got them is to run a scan to find them.  Why not do it?  It's easy....
