Fast Connection - Slow Computer


Recommended Posts

My 10Mb connection was constantly very fast it seemed, but today my sister came to stay for a few days away from university.

she asked me if she could use the pc i told her that she could just use her lappy and not downlaod spyware on my machine,  so i hooked it up via ethernet and off she went.... i couldnt help but do a quick speed test and to my amazement she had a constant test result of 9.4Mb......

my machine is now gettting slower..... obviosuly its not the connection because she can achiebve high speeds and my computer is just slow... the max i get is 5mb nothing faster...

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

Download Connection is:: 1131 Kbps about 1.13 Mbps (tested with 20972 kB)

Download Speed is:: 138 kB/s

Tested From:: http://hem.bredband.net

Test Time:: 2006/08/15 - 11:53am

Bottom Line:: 20X faster than 56K 1MB Download in 7.42 sec

Tested from a 20972 kB file and took 151.954 seconds to complete

Download Diagnosis:: May need help : running at only 36.52 % of your hosts average (co.uk)

thats a constant.... what can i do on my computer to speed things us browsing and when downloading....

1. What OS are you running? Windows XP SP2 installed fix still no difference.

2. Who your Internet Service Provider (ISP) is, and what the advertised speed for download/upload is.

isp Blueyonder Cable 10Mb Down 356Up

3. What tweaking programs you already have installed, and run this test.  Copy all text and paste it in your post! For security reasons, blank out your IP #.

TCP options string = 0204058601010402

MTU = 1454

MTU sometimes used in PPPoA applications. If not, 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 = 1414

Maximum useful data in each packet = 1414, 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:

520352 (MSS x 46 * scale factor of 8)

260176 (MSS x 46 * scale factor of 4)

130088 (MSS x 46 * scale factor of 2)

65044 (MSS x 46)

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 = 121 hops

TTL value is ok.

Timestamps (RFC1323) = OFF

Selective Acknowledgements (RFC2018) = ON

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

The theoretical network limit is 1.68 Mbps

The NDT server has a 101.0 KByte buffer which limits the throughput to 4.42 Mbps

Your PC/Workstation has a 63.0 KByte buffer which limits the throughput to 2.80 Mbps

The network based flow control limits the throughput to 2.84 Mbps

Client Data reports link is 'T1', Client Acks report link is 'T1'

Server Data reports link is '10 Gig', Server Acks report link is 'Ethernet'

5. done this

6. thats fine

7. all ok, just updated drivers

8. done that

9. yep tried that too.

10. dont use zonealarm

11. i use standard antivirus and firewall provided by isp.

12. scan and everyting is ok.

13. widnows updates are all uptodate now!

14. wow! great tool, had it for ages and use it frequently

15. whih should i use.

Well, your problem is very common.  Let me give you an ISP tech support line:  Computer maintenance is priceless.  My computer also has 512 MB RAM...it by far isn't the fastest machine out there.  However, weekly I run maintenance - network updates, cleaning cache and cookies, running antispyware tests, antivirus tests, power cycling my modem, and removing unused programs.  Do you do this?  It's basic stuff, but sometimes it makes a world of a difference!

Thanks Guys, That TCPOptimizer has made it even faster as they speed has even increased on my sisters laptop aswell...

Thanks To dlewis23 for all your help.... A brownie point for you sir lol...

WatchMeNow ;Your ISP blocks ping.so does mine.One result you can get is the test below.

This will show a MTU of larger than 1500 will not work without fragmenting.

C:WINDOWS>ping -f -l 1473 testmy.net

Pinging testmy.net [67.18.179.85] with 1473 bytes of data

    Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 0, Lost = 4 (100%

Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:

    Minimum = 0ms, Maximum =  0ms, Average =  0ms

If it gives you the timed out message with this below then your MTU is 1500

ping -f -l 1472 testmy.net

If you have most DSL the amount to ping with would be 1464 this would show the MTU was 1492.

BTW the l is a small L.
