Help with My dsl connection please


Recommended Posts

1. I'm running Windows XP Professional. I read in some posts that you can't tweak DSL that much if you use XP, but maybe you guys can still help me.

2.  I use Verizon DSL, the 1.5Mb download speed one.

3.  I have downloaded Cablenut.

4.  Tweaks test

(I am unpingable for some reason)

5. Speed test:

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

Connection is:: 731 Kbps about 0.7 Mbps (tested with 2992 KB)

Download Speed is:: 89 KB/s

Tested From:: http://www.testmy.net/

Bottom Line:: 13 times faster than 56K you can download 1MB in 11.51 second(s)

Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/cgi-bin/get.cgi?Test_ID=ZJAINV6S1

PS: I can't trace to testmy.nett; I get this message that  says

"tracert" is  not recognized as an internal or external command

or

"testmy.net" is not recognized " " "

hey iloveny161 and welcome to the forum :)

dsl need alot of fine tuning but lets give it a shot, if it dosent help its easy to restore windows default values.

1st install SP2 for windows XP if you dont have it already

now download the file i attach and unzip it to C:ProgramCablenut

open cablenut adjuster and click delete cablenut tweaks and click save to registry

in top left corner you see file, click load custom settings, browse to C:ProgramCablenut

dubbleclick on the file you unzipped

click save to registry and reboot, also reboot your modem and router for 30 seconds

make a new tweaktest and post result URL and also make new speedtest

good luck

I dont think i can help, the problem must be in your ISP net, also scan for virus/ spyware that can slow down alot too... also update your NIC driver

open cablenut and click delete cablenut tweaks and click save to registry and reboot, now all values is set to windows default and you can complain to your ISP.

good luck

I called them, and they told me I was provisioned for 768kb rather than 1.5mb, and that 1.5 mb wasn't available in my area -_-. Anyways, this weird problem has occured after  I made all these changes. Even though I result the registry to default, The status of my local area connection says this message: limited or no connectivity. My internet has also been a little slower too. I was wondering if you could help me with this?

run this test again and post result URL http://www.broadbandreports.com/tweaks

when you open cablenut, all fields suppose to be blank, if not click delete cablenut tweaks and click save to registry

reboot and also reboot your modem, leave it off for 30 seconds
