query reg my broadband speed


Recommended Posts

My computer configuration is 512MB ram ,80GB,2.4GHz

I ve broadband connection with rated speed of  256Kpbs,ADSL line

The problem is that speed doesn t remain constant MOREOVER THE TRANSFER RATE  too doesn t remain constant inthe  sense it varies very widely between morning afternoon ,night .Max speed is attained during afternoon only in the morning speed drops to 95kpbs too!!!!!

i had seen all the tips in the forum for incresing the speed  and no virus or spyware is reported i used TCP/IP optimiser , Cablenut & Tuneup utilities 2006 too butthe problem remains Pls suggest a way to increse my speed

the result of testmy.net download test is posted below for ur reference

the result with the first website is as under

Your Internet speed: 354 kilobits per second.    Test Again

Status: Your Internet connection may be damaged or malfunctioning. High-speed Internet connections typically have the most inefficiency and room for improvement. 

this is with first website  &with the second one i culdn t see the START button for testing !!!!

In the first test, you should have a similar display as shown below:

TCP options String = 020405a40103030101010402

MTU = 1484

MTU is somewhat optimized for broadband. If you're not on a PPPoE DSL connection that limits packet size, consider increasing your MTU to 1500 for optimal throughput.

MSS = 1444

Maximum useful data in each packet = 1444, which equals MSS.

Default TCP Receive Window (RWIN) = 127776

RWIN Scaling (RFC1323) = 1 bits (scale factor of 2)

Unscaled TCP Receive Window = 63888

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

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

508288 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 8)

254144 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 4)

127072 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 2)

63536 (MSS x 44)

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

Your TCP Window limits you to: 5111.04 kbps (638.88 KBytes/s) @ 200ms

Your TCP Window limits you to: 2044.416 kbps (255.552 KBytes/s) @ 500ms

MTU Discovery (RFC1191) = ON

Time to live left = 50 hops

TTL value is ok.

Timestamps (RFC1323) = OFF

Selective Acknowledgements (RFC2018) = ON

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

For the second test, you need to make your java active for that website to display the test box.

hai thanks for the reply here is the result of the speed test with first website

TCP options string = 0204058401010402

MTU = 1452

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 = 1412

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

Default TCP Receive Window (RWIN) = 65320

RWIN Scaling (RFC1323) = 0 bits

Unscaled TCP Receive Window = 65320

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

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

519616 (MSS x 46 * scale factor of 8)

259808 (MSS x 46 * scale factor of 4)

129904 (MSS x 46 * scale factor of 2)

64952 (MSS x 46)

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

Your TCP Window limits you to: 2612.8 kbps (326.6 KBytes/s) @ 200ms

Your TCP Window limits you to: 1045.12 kbps (130.64 KBytes/s) @ 500ms

MTU Discovery (RFC1191) = ON

Time to live left = 114 hops

TTL value is ok.

Timestamps (RFC1323) = OFF

Selective Acknowledgements (RFC2018) = ON

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

And for the second one i donno  ho w to activate my Java settings

What browesr do you use? Internet Explorer, FireFox, Opera, or some others?

We first try to see if we can increase your MTU value to 1500 from 1452.

Open TCP Optimizer and do the following:

General Settings tab:

Custom settings - check

Modify All Network Adapters - check

network adapter selection - your NIC

MTU - 1500

TTL - 64

TCP Receive Window - blank

MTU Discovery - Yes

Black Hole Detect - No

Selective Acks - Yes

Max Duplicate ACKs - 2

TCP 1323 Options:

Windows Scaling - uncheck

Timestamps - uncheck

Advanced Settings tab:

Max Connections per Server - 10

Max Connections per 1.0 Server - 20

LocalPriority - 5

Host Priority - 6

DNSPriority - 7

NetbtPriority - 8

Lan Browsing speedup - optimized

QoS: NonBestEffortLimit - 0

ToS: DisableUserTOSSetting - 0

ToS: DefaultTOSValue - 240

MaxNegativeCacheTtl - 0

NetFailureCacheTime - 0

NegativeSOACache Time - 0

LAN Request Buffer Size - 32768

Then select "Apply Changes" and reboot to take effect

After reboot, you can use the feature in TCP Optimizer to locate your largest MTU.

Open TCP Optimizer, set MTU to 1500, click 'Largest MTU', then enter any website address and click 'Start'. Your comp will send out pings and establish your system's largest MTU value.

If your largest MTU value is more than 1452 we can make a ccs file for you following this value

hai rainmaka thank u for ur interest

            i had already told that the speed doesn t remain constant at all it reaches the max during afternoons and min during morning

            As u told 335kpbs is a superb speed which i like but it doesn t remain there it droops to even 95kbps

Yes you are right that the speedtest result posted exceeded subscribed speed by quite a large percentage. However, this is the point of the request::

"The problem is that speed doesn t remain constant MOREOVER THE TRANSFER RATE  too doesn t remain constant inthe  sense it varies very widely between morning afternoon ,night .Max speed is attained during afternoon only in the morning speed drops to 95kpbs too!!!!!"

Variations in speed could be due simply to internet traffic at different time of the day.

But the TCP Analyzer test showed 2 abnormalies:

MTU value is a little low (but it may be ISP imposed) and RWIN value high for a 256 Kbps bandwidth.

The nitro test may give further clues through readings on signal quality, latency and network imposed throughput limit.

Click 'Start', 'Run' and in the box type "cmd" and click 'ok'.

In the DOS black screen and after C: use this command

ping -f -l (max value) www.testmy.net 

Where -l is minus small L  and max value is your largest anticipated MTU value minus 28.

Say you start with assumed MTU value of 1500, max value is 1500-28 = 1472

If you get a message "Packets need to be fragmented..." Then 1500 is not your largest MTU.

Go on pinging with a max value less 1 until you get a proper result like "Reply from XX.XXX.XX.XXX: bytes= ______  time = _____ ms    TTL= ___

The bytes value shown + 28 = your largest MTU.

Hi,

In the ping test:

ping -f -l (max value) www.testmy.net

you are suppose to use numbers 1472, 1471, 1470, ....in the place of max value, example

ping -f -l 1472 www.testmy.net

Each time a smaller number by one until you get the message:

"Reply from XX.XXX.XX.XXX: bytes= ______  time = _____ ms    TTL= ___"

I think you will get this message at number 1464. If not then at number 1452.

Which country are you in?

In the nitro test, you will see 2 buttons below the test box: 'Statistics' and 'More Details'. Click the buttons and a new report will appear for each button. Please post the 2 reports.

Hey there.

You can usually track something like this using a traceroute.  Use the same site every time, like Testmy.net, and run the traceroute during different times of the day when you get different speeds.  Keep a text document with a running tally including the traceroute and time of day, and map it out that way.  Doing this, you'll be able to see if it is a network issue.

Otherwise, it is likely that something in your house is causing this to happen, like an appliance kicking on or something.  Keep in mind that any electrical device (some more so than others) emit an electromagnetic field when running that may interfere with either your cable modem, or the signal in the lines.  So keep an eye out.

BTW, do you use a router?

Hi Karthic,

Here are the conclusions of the tests:

Your MTU has now been adjusted to 1480. Since your ISP is giving you a download speed of 256 Kbps, I have made a ccs file for you to suit this speed.

You will need to download Cablenut Adjuster program from www.cablenut.com and open the ccs file.

Then click 'Save to Registry', exit and reboot your comp to take effect.

Your round trip time (RTT) is rather high. This is the time taken for a signal to leave your computer to the website and then back to your computer. If you are in the US, RTT is usually 100-150 ms. When you are overseas, RTT may range from 250-320 ms. Your RTT is 458 ms.

Like what FallowEarth have suggested, you may have some electrical interference on your modem or signal cables. Besides your cell phone, other possible source of interference can be router placed next to the modem. They should be a few feet apart. Sound speakers and subwoofer of your comp sound system or a cordless phone set can also emit interference.

If no interference is found, then some problem in the hardware like Nic, router or modem may be a possibility.

To find out if your ISP network is busy or not, you can do the nitro test and check this part of the result:

"Your PC/Workstation has a 63.0 KByte buffer which limits the throughput to 1.09 Mbps. The network based flow control limits the throughput to 1.10 Mbps"

When your ISP is busy, the network based flow control limits throughput to ____ Mbps will be smaller then your PC/Workstation _____ Mbps.

The smaller the network limit is, the busier is the ISP network.

So now you can test to see if your slow speed in the mornings is due to heavy internet traffic.

This was your nitro test results earlier:

"Cable modem/DSL/T1 link found.

Link set to Full Duplex mode

No network congestion discovered.

Good network cable(s) found

Normal duplex operation found"

This is the Alarm nitro test gave after you relocated your modem:

Alarm: Duplex mismatch condition exists: Host set to Full and Switch set to Half duplex

See if you still get this alarm if you raise your modem one foot above your comp?

what do u think fallow earth????????????????

I don't think that looks too bad. A couple times a day you are getting slower speed, usually during peak traffic hours it looks like. It is possible that the test server is seeing heavy traffic when you are testing. With lower speeds as yours, you will notice the effect much more than if you had cable speeds. My speeds may fluctuate up to 1 Mbps, according to traffic and the time of day. I just retest and they are back to normal. It may also depend on the traffic through the network of your ISP, which you could monitor by traceroute. Or it could be that there is just much more to cause interference during those times of day.

You are seeing speeds up to and over your cap, that is definitely a good thing. That they are not as stable as you would like, as long as you are minimizing things from your end, there's not much else you can do other than call up your ISP with the details. But from the looks of things, its not too far from ordinary.

Try doing this from the command prompt:

netstat -ano

This shows you what connections are open on your PC.  It also shows the Process ID (PID).  If you open your Task Manager, click View, Set Columns, and tick the box for PID, then you will be able to see which running processes may be hogging your bandwidth.

as told by u is placing the modem one feet on top of the comp(i.e., monitor is at the top of all the devices in my home) the only solution? since i don t have a provision for placing my modem at that place!

              i ve placed my modem at various places & heights from the ground & tested the speed but the same alarm info awaits me in the result!

              Actually what does this mean ?

"Duplex mismatch condition exists: Host set to Full and Switch set to Half duplex"

              what is the relation between the above statement & ur advice ? Can i know it? pls! Is there any prob with my cables?

                Usually i  used to wrap the extra cable in a circular shape to have a good look but during these tests i unwrapped it during these tests!

      thank u trojers
