Connection is:: 2723 Kbps about 2.7 Mbps (tested with 1496 KB)

1. I'm running Windows XP SP2 on a 3.0 GHz, 512 MB RAM Dell Dimension 4700 desktop.

2. I have Comcast cable internet, advertised download speed is 3.0 Mbps.

3. Cable modem is a Motorola SB4100.

4. I don't have any tweaks installed.

5. I connect via onboard ethernet.

6. I don't have any spyware or viruses.

I've run the testmy.net test several times, and I consistently get 2.5-2.8 Mbps download speed. I was getting over 3.0 Mbps on my old computer. Can I make it a little faster?

VanBuren, I don't think it made my connection any faster. I ran the testmy.net test several times and all results were less than 2.7 Mbps.

Here's my tweaktest results:

I think my computer is a little slower after running the program. It seems to take a second or two longer to open programs. Is there a way for me to undo the changes made?

:( Your computer has the guts to go faster but I think your ISP is stopping you, at 3Mbps you should be able to get 90% of that but if the ISP isn't giving you all your bandwidth then you just wont go faster :(  DSL reports that your  setup is OK so that leaves your ISP..... I have my system set at the same numbers as you do and changing them has no effect on speed but does slow down web page loading at least 4me it does. on this  puter  it may be possible to get a little more we shall see....... good luck

giving up already?

i havent even begun to help you get speed, there is no tweak that fits all, you need to finetune sometimes

ppl that been around here should know that  ;)

all you need to do is open cablenut and click delete cablenut tweaks and click save to registry and reboot, then windows default settings is loaded

however i modifyed the file abit, and if you like to give it a shot here it is....

Let's keep trying to make it faster. I tried the new tweak, and it seems like my speed improved a tiny bit. I tested several times and all were in the 2.7-2.8 Mbps range. I tested on testmy.net when I first got my computer 2 weeks ago, and it was a little over 3.0 Mbps. Don't know why it slowed down a little.

thanks Microwave  :D

when it comes to tweaking internet connections i have a very big patience, almost too big  :lol:

i want to squeeze out every bit possible  ;)

the only tweaks i have some problems with right now is AFD tweaks with DSL, im still working on them and i will help if somone wants to try em out.

the DSL tweaks in Version 3 is based on the old way to tweak without AFD change, it works but will never give the same boost.
