pls help me speed up my connection (myDestiny)

Recommended Posts

i've heard my good things about this board and how it helped many Net-izens improve their conenction speed.. maybe you could help me with my dilemma when it comes to my connection ..

OS: WinXP Home Edition SP2

ISP: myDestiny Cable Internet (Philippines)

Firewall: Sygate Personal Firewall v5.5

AntiVirus: NOD32

here's my bandwidth test result:

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

Download Connection is:: 319 Kbps about 0.32 Mbps (tested with 2992 kB)

Download Speed is:: 39 kB/s

Tested From:: https://testmy.net/ (Server 1)

Test Time:: 2006/08/12 - 9:56am

Bottom Line:: 6X faster than 56K 1MB Download in 26.26 sec

Tested from a 2992 kB file and took 76.797 seconds to complete

Download Diagnosis:: May need help : running at only 45.57 % of your hosts average (mydestiny.net)

D-Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-W4BCU0PS8

User Agent:: Opera/9.00 (Windows NT 5.1; U; en) [!]

the advertised speed of my ISP ranges from 256-512kbps, uncapped, which means i can reach 1mbps or higher .. but the thing is, i have to use a download manager to achieve that speed .. when i use the "Save Target As ..." option of Opera, the speed would range between 15kB/s-30kB/s ..

on SpeedGuide.Net's TCP/IP Analyzer, here's the result:

TCP options string = 020405b401010402

MTU = 1500

MTU is fully optimized for broadband.

MSS = 1460

Maximum useful data in each packet = 1460, which equals MSS.

Default TCP Receive Window (RWIN) = 65535

RWIN Scaling (RFC1323) = 0 bits

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

513920 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 8)

256960 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 4)

128480 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 2)

64240 (MSS x 44)

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

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

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

MTU Discovery (RFC1191) = ON

Time to live left = 118 hops

TTL value is ok.

Timestamps (RFC1323) = OFF

Selective Acknowledgements (RFC2018) = ON

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

.. what configurations or settings should i use? btw, i've also called my ISP's hotline and they said that there's no problem with my connection ..

hey and welcome to the forum p0rnrh3tt :)

speedmeters in browsers is usually not very accurate. You can test this by open taskmanager network graph, and see if it picks up the speed. The reason is that when clicking "save as" browser starts downloading a part of the file before you even clicked "ok". That make speedmeter to jump since it calculate how much you downloaded and split it in time. To use this type of measurement, you need a large file eg 30 MB and download it completely.

your RWIN is very large for that type of bandwidth, i suggest you try cablenut and use

VanBurens_cablenut_settings_version_9CABLE_DSL_FIBER_DIAL-UPWinXP_2K_CABLE_DSLMTU 1500

Cable & DSL 512.ccs or Cable & DSL 1500.ccs

..there's an improvement ..

btw, are there other things that i need to optimize so i could reach 1mpbs speed? or that'll depend on my ISP?

the download manager that i'm using is "Internet Download Manager" .. the download speed reaches 100+ to 200+kB/s ..

I don't know if this will help or not, but if you're using Opera, try testing with either Firefox or Internet Explorer.  I know when I used Opera for testing it would give me really low speeds, then when I switched back to Firefox and IE, my speeds were fine again.

p0rnrh3tt Welcome to the forum, well try

use this file, small files can give inconsistent results

http://www.testmy.net/dl-2992

VanBuren :)

As VanBuren says try a bigger file because when you use a small one all the connection does is starts and seconds later it stops it dosent have enought time to reach its peak/maximum speed using a large file will max it out and hopefully give you an accurate test.

p0rnrh3tt use a bigger test file as van suggested, use IE to test as well if you can. if your advertised is between 256-512Kbps you are getting that. so your internet is fine. The reason you can get more when you use a download manager, is becuase it opens up more connections to the webserver. But most of the time those speeds you see there are fake, there not hte actually speed you are getting.

is this speed ok?

but having an uncapped speed, does that mean my speed would be inconsistent and that explains i i sometimes get an mpbs connection?

The fact of the matter is....if your advertised range is where you say it is, even if it is uncapped, it is unlikely you will ever come close to reaching your highest advertised speed, being that you are using a cable connection.  Your bandwidth is shared with all of your neighbors, and if your neighbor is Pirus the music Pirate, you are screwed.  Look in your network neighborhood...you will see all of your neighbors in there.  I recommend using Internet Explorer to test your download speeds, but not simply using its download utility.  I have very accurate testing from www.speakeasy.net/speedtest.  Resetting or changing your TCP/IP recieve window will do very little for a slower broadband connection.  If you want to play around a little, remove any firewalls - software or hardware - and see if that helps.  My connection is about 100kbps (12.2kBps) slower with a firewall up due to overhead...but it is worth it to me.  Also, I know that at least 75 % of the time, when I have a client complaining about slow internet speeds over a broadband connection....it is a simple computer problem.  Clear your cache, cookies, history, disk cleanup, and defragment your hard drive.  Uninstall any programs you don't use(it is easy for them to build up).  Only have critical processes run at startup.  Remember, your internet connection is only as fast as your computer...a computer overwhelmed with processes will surely show "slow" internet speeds.  I say try that before messing with any TCP/IP recieve window settings, etc.

hi! it's me again .. my download speed has been increased .. the max download speed that i can get is 305kB/s .. my question is since i formatted my PC, will i use the same setting as mentioned above?

my only problem now is my upload speed .. will there be an improvement if i apply the settings mentioned above? :)

During the first two months.. DL speed was around 240Kbps... :/

I just wanna cry. agh. I'm so jealous guys.. Destiny users who are getting around 250s...

That's the subscribe speed right? for 999 plan?

I emailed myDestiny, and they insisted on using their own SPeedtest..

But it's giving connection rather than speed. so misleading..
