Download speed totally took a dive.....

Recommended Posts

I just moved to my new place and got everything hooked up. I brought the Bell Ultra Speed and phone number with me. The thing is, now I can't even download a 4mb file in 5 mins. It's brutal. I use to beable to click the link and the file was done by the time it came up. Newgrounds... Can't even enjoy that site anymore with the load time. I could click a Flash movie a week ago and it would instantly beable to stream through with no interuptions. now I click it and it takes 10 mins to load. I don't know what the problem is, anyone know?

It's like I'm capped at 17kb now...

Welcome, Merch.

Gotta start here, it's got everything: http://www.testmy.net/forum/t-2097

What you wanna find out is if it is a degradation in signal quality, or an issue with the software on your machine. Running some ICMP tests (tracert, pings, pathping) is a good place to start looking. Also, you can monitor netstat (netstat -ano in XP to cross-reference to PID) to keep tabs on what connections are open from and to your PC. Doing a number of these over a period of time will give you a good idea of what's happening with your connection.

Have you installed any new software recently, or done any updates? Checked for spyware? Tried cablenut?

Anything at all, just post here and somebody will answer.

peedGuide.net TCP/IP Analyzer

TCP properties for IP = --- ()

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 = 020405ac0103030101010402

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) = 66792

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

Unscaled TCP Receive Window = 33396

RWIN is not fully optimized (even though it is a comparatively large number). The unscaled RWIN value is lower than it should be. Also, RWIN being close to and above 65535 does not justify the header overhead of enabling TCP 1323 Options. You might want to use one of the recommended RWIN values below.

RWIN is 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: 2671.68 kbps (333.96 KBytes/s) @ 200ms

Your TCP Window limits you to: 1068.672 kbps (133.584 KBytes/s) @ 500ms

MTU Discovery (RFC1191) = ON

Time to live left = 23 hops

TTL value is ok.

Timestamps (RFC1323) = OFF

Selective Acknowledgements (RFC2018) = ON

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

Smart to remove your IPs.  I assume that one is your router (hop 2), the other your modem (hop 1).  There is a lot of latency between them, and that is most likely the biggest factor in your problem.  A powercycle will usually resolve this, but if it creeps back up, you've got a problem.

You could also do with some cablenut tweaks (your RWIN is a little low).  This will increase the amount of data you can receive at a time.  Check out cablenut at http://cablenut.com/ and VanBuren's custom files: http://www.testmy.net/topic-1013

Is this a cable connection? If so, are you using a on-board ethernet card? If so, try using a seperate pci ethernet card and retest again.

it doesnt matter wether you use a onboard or pci eathenet card they still use the CPU to process the information so that will make no difference.

Merch go into your modems control panel and get all the line stats and post it.

Due to my past experiences with onboard cards, I was just passing it along that I found my onboard card to do the same thing, and therefore I offered an idea to help rectify his situation, thats all.

As for using CPU for processing.. the "Onboard Network Processor" can be utilized for this.

Registry Settings

System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesTcpipParameters]

Value Name: DisableTaskOffload

Data Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)

Value Data: (0 = Use NIC Processor, 1 = Disable NIC Processor)

All my problems (all 4 of them,on four different motherboards) were due to crapped out onboard cards.
