hi all i just had a quick question..i have Earthlink cable 6000/512..i usually run around 8m down using speakeasy and 7m using myspeed..on this site i was getting about 6.5 down..uploads run about 475k,,i have win xp..ive cleaned the registry using ccleaner.i check for viruses,spyware and etc daily.i ran the speedguide optimizer and now in getting 4m download at best..oh and the higher speeds were done throughout the day..the lower speed is right now..my question is should i do a system restore to put my system back the way it was or if the problem might fix itself?

Welcome to the forum tonyslaughter.  :wave:

I run the Optimizer because it works best on my comp. But my suggestion for you in this forum would be to do a system restore and get cable-nut. Because you will get a lot of help form this forum on cable-nut. And don't forget to wait 2 to three days for full effects before changing optimizer or cable-nut settings.

How long have you had Optimizer installed?

Also post a speed test.

I agree with Tommie. You can tweak more with cablenut and you will pick up a lot of knowledge here. I suggest also to download a large file from the net and see what your real download speed is, then compare it with your speed tests. Most of the tests I run aren't as accurate as testmy.net when comparing to actual download speeds. Check out this sticky. http://www.testmy.net/forum/t-2097

Welcome to the forum and good luck!  :D

Hey tonyslaughter.

First of all, it is important to understand that you should not use both Optimizer and Cablenut.  I can help you with cablenut, so this is what I would suggest.

First clear all values in Optimizer, save and reboot.  Then open the file in the zip I have attached, save to registry and reboot.

Have you run ccleaner?  Tried the scan at www.ewido.net ?

Your trace looks good.  It is most likely that software running on your PC is slowing you down.  Things that can do this are: firewall, antivirus, antispyware, browser extensions/toolbars, popup blockers.  My suggestion is to shut all these down while you are testing. 

Also, have you tried testing from a mirror closer to you?  As it was suggested above, testing with a larger file increases accuracy on a connection such as yours.

Hope this helps some.  Holla back with questions.
