Need Help increasing my speeds ..


Recommended Posts

I've done everything in the sticky .. Running WinXP Pro and Comcast Cable

I randomly chose one of Vanburens Cablenut settings .. for Cable XP because I didn't know which one to choose .. My utility program is System Mechanic 6 Pro * Highly reccomended*

Well here are my speeds ..

:::.. testmy.net test results ..:::

Download Connection is:: 17231 Kbps about 17.23 Mbps (tested with 12160 kB)

Download Speed is:: 2103 kB/s

Upload Connection is:: 307 Kbps about 0.3 Mbps (tested with 579 kB)

Upload Speed is:: 37 kB/s

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

Test Time:: 2006/11/25 - 9:23am

Any idea on how I could improve this?

What are your advertised speeds first Dragonbreak. I would set the dial just a bit faster than what your advertised speed is. Then after a couple of days I would switch it every couple of days til I got it maximized. It takes 2-3 days to fully allow the settings to settle down. Say about 18,000 to start. And sometimes it helps to go lower than advertised.  :wink2:

By the way very nice speeds.  :grin2:

Hey guys, I was just messing around with my cablenut settings and I forgot which one I used to obtain the 17mbs DL speed like the above post. Now, I'm only getting about 2-9 mbs DL speed and it's really inconsistnent ..Any ideas on what I should do to get this back on track?

Also, Tommie, It seems as if ave comcast rating *according to testmy.net* is 5526 kbps. Im not sure what exactly Comcast is advertising but yeah ..

Help :)

Did you reboot after installing. I tried to take a test and it was slow. Clear your cache before you click on this link because it starts as soon as you click.

Dragonbreak this may sound weird but try cleaning out your temp files and defragment your harddrive. It helps me sometimes.  :grin2:

It opens for me also.  :wink2:

:oops: Did not see a second page. *crawls back under his bush and waits*
