weird connection problem


Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm new here. I am having some trouble with my connection and can't figure out what exactly is wrong, so I've decided to come here and ask for help. Heres my problem. I have a dsl connection and I am on a router. I am running winxp with sp2. The strange thing is that my download speed on the other computers are fine, but on this one, it's very slow and it spikes. I've tested dling files from the same locations on my other computer, I was getting 150kb/s, while on this computer, I got around 20kb/s. I have the microsoft antispyware program, symantec antivirus, adaware, spybot, ccleaner. I ran them all, and there are no infected files or any spywares. I tested my upload as well, and it is perfectly fine, does not fluctuate at all. Thanks for reading  :D

yea, I think there's either something on the computer, or some setting is messed up.

my isp is sbcyahoo dsl, advertised speed is 1200kbps down and 256kbps up

additional info:

TCP properties for IP = 69.107.83.xx ()

Browser/OS = Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)

Notes: Read the Analyzer FAQ if the above is not your IP address.

TCP options string = 020405780103030201010402

MTU = 1440

MTU is not fully optimized for broadband. Consider increasing your MTU to 1500 for better throughput. If you are using a router, it could be limiting your MTU regardless of Registry settings.

MSS = 1400

MSS is not optimized for broadband. Consider increasing your MTU value.

Default Receive Window (RWIN) = 257600

RWIN Scaling (RFC1323) = 2 bits (scale factor of 4)

Unscaled Receive Window = 64400

RWIN is a multiple of MSS

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

515200 (MSS x 46 * scale factor of 8)

128800 (MSS x 46 * scale factor of 2)

64400 (MSS x 46)

i have another pc on the same network, if thats what you mean

Oh yes, and you said it is fine, right?  What kind of speeds are you getting on it?

oh another thing i forgot to mention, i've tried changing network card and it doesn't help

Yeah, changing hardware is not going to matter if the problem is software, which I'm thinking it must be.

<hr>

Have you tried setting the duplex of your network card to 100Mbps/Full-duplex?  Your router may not support it (most do), but some ppl see speed increase when the duplex is forced instead of auto-detect, because it relies less on resources.
