I suggest if your RSSI is below 500 (just like mine), and even you orient the antenna in different positions and still RSSI is below 500, you can increase it by adding a passive antenna (also known as

well the answer is you cant make your smartbro faster.. but you can do the tweaks to make sure that the whole bandwidth will be put into good use.. you can use the 20 steps by coolbuster.. it can help you set your computer so the speed your getting will be the same speed that you will be using..

tweaking something on the canopy page won't actually do anything significant.. you can try but you can't be assured.

try to do the coolbusters tweak.. and if that thing doesn't help. then suspect that its actually with your reception.. it could be noisy...

thanks ian! where can i see the coolbuster tweak? please halp.  :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

or email me the coolbuster tweak pls.

thanks for posting your AP Eval screenie johnmikeb  :smiley:

now i can see where your problem is. you are currently homed in the wrong Access Point in your base station.

color code 51 (current AP) says your RSSI is only 551 with SectorUserCount of 23. you should be homed at color code 57 where the RSSI is higher at 972 and SectorUserCount of 27, w/c is just within a good range.

SOLUTION: CHANGE YOUR COLOR CODE.

1. login to canopy webpage thru 169.254.1.1 (default)

2. click "Configuration"

3. click the "Radio" tab

4. in the color code box, replace the current value 51 to a new value 57

5. click "Save Changes"

6. click "Reboot"

7. wait for your canopy antenna to reboot and then close your browser. if you like, restart your computer or disconnect then reconnect your lan to make sure the changes will take effect.

8. do a speed test http://www.testmy.net/speedtest/d_load.php and post the result.  :wink:

(OT: hah, i've already mastered tweaking smartbro, they should be getting me! haha  :cheesy: what do you think?  :azn: )

thanks again ian, youre really a big help,.

here is my EP Avaluation:

use color code 57 or 56....  the criteria for selecting the ideal color code is LOW Jitter and High RSSI

RSSI stands for Received Signal Strength

Jitter : Small rapid variations in a waveform resulting from fluctuations in the voltage supply or mechanical vibrations or other sources...

thanks ian! where can i see the coolbuster tweak? please halp. :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

or email me the coolbuster tweak pls.

here is the direct link..

---------------

Just a quick note for those people who are trying to access their canopy.. again please be reminded not to use a router when you try to access the canopy.. make sure you are connected directly to the POE cable.. (power over cable)  and not through the router....

hello Michael V. and  :welcome: to testmy.net (are you the comedian/tv host/rapper?)

your RWin test should appear similar to this:

Default TCP Receive Window (RWIN) = 938768

RWIN Scaling (RFC1323) = 4 bits (scale factor: 2^4=16)

Unscaled TCP Receive Window = 58673

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

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

64240  (up to 2 Mbit lines, depending on latency. MSS * 44)

128480 (1-5 Mbit lines, depending on latency. MSS * 44 * 2)

256960 (2-14 Mbit lines, depending on latency. MSS * 44 * 2^2)

513920 (8-30 Mbit lines, depending on latency. MSS * 44 * 2^3)

1027840 (25-60 Mbit lines depending on latency. MSS * 44 * 2^4)

check it back.

I also would like to know if there is a way i can access the canopy not just the front page.

because it says

Account: none

Level: Guest

My son put a password on it but he can't remember it anymore.

Thank you again in advance.

try using these:

open the canopy webpage. click login.

account: root

password: [leave it blank]

hope these help.  :wink:

@coolbuster

Default TCP Receive Window (RWIN) = 1022208

RWIN Scaling (RFC1323) = 4 bits (scale factor: 2^4=16)

Unscaled TCP Receive Window = 63888

RWIN is a multiple of MSS

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

63888  (up to 2 Mbit lines, depending on latency. MSS * 44)

127776 (1-5 Mbit lines, depending on latency. MSS * 44 * 2)

255552 (2-14 Mbit lines, depending on latency. MSS * 44 * 2^2)

511104 (8-30 Mbit lines, depending on latency. MSS * 44 * 2^3)

1022208 (25-60 Mbit lines depending on latency. MSS * 44 * 2^4) <-- current value

Thanks for the help. btw here is my AP Evaluation

scale factors - go to this address http://www.j79zlr.com/cablenutXP2k.php and click TCP/IP Analyzer

router issue - clone your lan card's mac address

*For instance, the procedure for the Linksys BEFSR41 is:

    * Discover the MAC address of the PC that you want to clone.

    * Send your web browser to the Linksys configuration at http://192.168.1.1/ and quote the password for access;Click tab Advanced;

    * Click tab MAC Addr clone;Enter the PC's MAC address, two characters in each of the six boxes.

    * Click Apply.

the right colorcode? - high rssi, high in power, less usercount.

i hope these help.  :wink:
