Help me tweak my connection ---isp:mydestiny(phil)

Hello I've been reading a lot of forums here for 2 years already; however, this is my first time to register and post a question.

Well my internet seems to get good speeds at night ranging from 900-1.3 Mbps, but usually it keeps on changing speeds whenever i test it. I've been testing my bandwidth with a lot of sites namely speakeasy.net, 2wire.com including my favorite  ;) testmy.net however their speeds always vary. Usually during the day I get a slow speed.

My question is could anyone help me tweak my pc so that I could get a better speed. My advertised speed is 512Kbps, but as I said it reaches up to 1Mbps because my isp isn't capped. 

These are my specs

OS: Windows XP Professional

ISP: Mydestiny internet (Philippines)--- cable

Router: Linksys Befs41 v1

Here's my speed results:

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

Download Connection is:: 242 Kbps about 0.24 Mbps (tested with 579 kB)

Download Speed is:: 30 kB/s

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

Test Time:: 2006/08/17 - 2:03am

Bottom Line:: 4X faster than 56K 1MB Download in 34.13 sec

Tested from a 579 kB file and took 19.609 seconds to complete

Download Diagnosis:: May need help : running at only 19.3 % of your hosts average (d-one.net)

User Agent:: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.0.6) Gecko/20060728 Firefox/1.5.0.6

I also posted results I got from TCP Analyzer:

SpeedGuide.net TCP/IP Analyzer

TCP properties for IP = 202.8.240.177 ()

Browser/OS = Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.0.6) Gecko/20060728 Firefox/1.5.0.6

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

TCP options string = 020405ac01010402

MTU = 1492

MTU is optimized for PPoE DSL broadband. If not, consider raising MTU to 1500 for optimal throughput.

MSS = 1452

MSS is optimized for PPPoE DSL broadband. If not, consider raising your MTU value.

Default TCP Receive Window (RWIN) = 11680

RWIN Scaling (RFC1323) = 0 bits

Unscaled TCP Receive Window = 11680

RWIN seems to be set to a very small number. If you're on a broadband connection, consider using a larger value.

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

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

511104 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 8 )

255552 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 4)

127776 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 2)

63888 (MSS x 44)

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

Your TCP Window limits you to: 467.2 Kbps (58.4 KBytes/s) @ 200ms

Your TCP Window limits you to: 186.88 Kbps (23.36 KBytes/s) @ 500ms

Consider increasing your RWIN value to optimize TCP/IP for broadband.

MTU Discovery (RFC1191) = ON

Time to live left = 55 hops

TTL value is ok.

Timestamps (RFC1323) = OFF

Selective Acknowledgements (RFC2018) = ON

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

Can anyone teach me what RWIN is and what configurations I need for cablenut?

I called my provider and they said I had good signals, but i doubt it because a few months a go I've been getting speeds of 1Mbps during the whole day.

welcome to the forum oistz.

you can try tweaking your connection, use tcp optmazer to start. you can get it here http://www.testmy.net/forum/t-11975 , move the slider to 512kbps, check "optimal settings: check "PPPoE" and make sure the network adapter is the correct one, apply and restart.

also try a little bit bigger test file clear your cache before you do teh test. http://www.testmy.net/tools/test/d_load.php?&st=st&tt=1&ta=1&top=000&out_src=3MB

Thanks for posting dlewis23, uhm what does PPPoE do? and won't my speed be limited to 512 kbps when I move the slider to this speed in tcp optimizer?

I tried testing my speed again tonight and just as I expected it was faster compared to this afternoon

speed results:

Is there a way to make my speed constant through out the day?

ostz, since its cable its shared so at nice more people are using the internet so it gets slowed down, there is really no way to stop taht from happning.

I said to do the slider at 512kbps because because that is what your adverstised speed is, but you can do it at a higher # i would try 1mbps and go from there,

PPPoE stands for Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet....it simply means you are,using a dedicated connection to another Ethernet network beyond your router..  As with any Ethernet network (especially cable internet using PPPoE), bandwidth and resources are shared.  As traffic increases, bandwidth decreases, and vice-versa...hence your faster speeds at night...small increases are possible, but on a PPPoE connection, what you get at night (as far as bandwidth is concerned) is about the best you will get.

What is RWIN cause TPC analyzer gave me these results

RWIN seems to be set to a very small number. If you're on a broadband connection, consider using a larger value.

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

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

511104 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 8 )

255552 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 4)

127776 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 2)

63888 (MSS x 44)

Will changing these values make my connection faster? if yes how do I change them? should I use cablenut?

oistz ;Welcome to the forum .It sounds like you have been a guest for a while now.I'm suprised you haven't read more about RWIN here.

You need to get CableNut.This will let you make RWIN settings easily.Probably to start with there is a analyzer that will give you the settings to use.

Your RWIN is too small for your connection.

Some people prefer TCP Optimizer instead of CableNut some like both.

I will go into this again though the TCPIP Analyzer at speedguide is good to check the RWIN in XP.It's suggestions for the RWIN value it detects are incorrect.It detects the DefaultReceiveWindow this is based on AFD parameters not MSS value in XP.

If you decide to get CableNut I or someone will look up the link for the online analyzer.Testmy also has some .ccs files for CableNut by VanBuren if you know your connection & there is the correct file for it.

Thanks dlewis23 for your help

This is my current speed when I used your tweak

Not much of a difference though, but I'd like to learn how you were able to make these settings? So that next time I would be able to make the settings by myself

:cry: Wahaha my speed in my desktop aren't constant. It returned to its slow speed again.

here are the results:

However when I tested my bandwidth in the laptop which was connected through a router, I got these results:

I am wondering why does my laptop and pc show a dramatic difference in speed? My laptop has no dl accelerators and it is connected with the interent through a linksys befsr41 router.

I cleared the cache, cookies and history in the laptop when I did this test. I also did the same when I tested my speed on the desktop.

wireless is always slower but i had a similar problem when i had 3Mbps they finally removed my MAC address and re-provisioned the modem and my speeds jumped and stayed constant

  • 2 months later...

I have the same ISP and I had the tech come over and check why SNR is below 30dB. Signal never is somewhere 26-29dB but never reaches 30dB. I read that signal should be at least 30.

Could this be our problem?

Downstream Value 

Frequency 729000000 Hz

Signal To Noise Ratio 26.8 dB

Power Level -4.7 dBmV
