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

:smiley: thanks for clarifying my insight on updating my network drivers! azgauth you should update yours too!  :cheesy:

Update? how? I tried almost every tweak available but i think none works for me, aside from those speed bugs, i never really got over 400kbps. just my usual 150-250kbps.

Im still looking for the perfect tweak for my PC. any suggestions?

sorry if i have posted this before on the wrong thread, i guess my querry's place rightfully belongs here...

so, i was asking if gourame's setting for cablenut is in any way compatible with windows vista...that is something i forgot to consider upon tweaking some settings before. maybe, it is one reason i should have considered...anyway...sorry if this was asked and answered before...i just can't find the proper place to ask...gourame seemed to be inactive these past few days...

thanks...by the way, i am using windows vista ultimate 32-bit edition. thanks.

but some posts i've read while browsing is concerned about the RWIN thing which up to now is alien to me...as today, i have not installed cablenut yet...i've just finished reformatting my pc and laptop.

i've tried some tweaks before and i just ended up messing too much and for that, i guess, i will at the moment just leave my speed to that level. anyway, in all fairness to smart, what im getting is i assume just enough for what i've been paying for...asking for more is just too unethical though some increases would surely be appreciated...of course! :grin:

definition of rwin,from this site http://www.dslreports.com/faq/tweaks/5._RWIN

RWIN (TCP Receive Window) is the amount of data that your computer can accept without acknowledging the sender. If the sender has not received acknowledgment for the first packet it sent, it will stop and wait. If this wait exceeds a certain limit, it may even retransmit. This is how TCP achieves reliable data transfer.

Anyway, this start/stop action slows down the throughput considerably in some cases. Hence, RWIN should be large enough to sustain continuous data transfer. By default, this window is too small (8760 for Windows 95/98/98SE/NT and 17520 for Windows ME/2000/XP) for many types of DSL and Cable (Broadband).

Raising RWIN creates a larger window, which allows more information to come through non-stop, up to a point. After this point, no difference will be noticed for the particular connection. For each user, this point can/will vary and is determined by (bandwidth * delay) product.

Please note that there is no single value for all hosts on the Internet. You have to allocate some reasonable extra RWIN (say 20-25%) for variance from average latency

note that smartbro's plan 999 has advertised speeds of 384Kbps. most members(me included) get way below that, sometimes to the extent that it is comparable to dial up connection. because of that, we turn to tweaking to compensate for smartbro's shortcomings.
