20 Steps to Make SmartBro Faster

Recommended Posts

disable NAT in your canopy don't use it.

In computer networking, the process of Network Address Translation (NAT, also known as Network Masquerading, Native Address Translation or IP Masquerading) involves re-writing the source and/or destination addresses of IP packets as they pass through a router or firewall. Most systems using NAT do so in order to enable multiple hosts on a private network to access the Internet using a single public IP address (see gateway). Many network administrators find NAT a convenient technique and use it widely. Nonetheless, NAT can introduce complications in communication between hosts and may have a performance impact. <---- that's according to wiki, see?  :wink:

thanks for the info! By the way whats the default status of NAT in the canopy? can't view mine!

reformatting my PC cannot be my option... especially right now coz im doing my thesis book... hehehe! anyway latest results of my consistently inconsistent speed... (w/ flushed dns and cache cleared...)

there's a way around that. you can simply partition your hd(if you haven't already) and save all your needed data on the spare partition. then you can format the partition with the windows installation. if you're going to partition your hd, i recommend using gparted.

look here http://gparted.sourceforge.net/

don't worry, you will learn in time. since the common student's use of a computer isn't much technical, there's little chance that you can mess up. just remember this few things.

1. make sure you have decent security programs installed(anti-virus, anti-spyware,firewall..)

2. be careful in browsing sites that are most likely to have viruses and spywares

  (cough..porn sites..cough)

3. be careful when dealing with the registry and other system files. read descriptions and make sure you know what you're doing

4. and most importantly, always have a backup.

who's your source, microsoft? :grin: anyway, yes, although it is more secure than IE, firefox is also most likely to get attacked by viruses. viruses and other malicious content on the internet are always evolving, that's why there is no program that you could call the "ultimate" in security. that's why software companies always make updates for their programs.

yes we understand. it's good you replaced your IP addresses with asterisks for security purposes.

here's my interpretation:

1) that 125.60.***.*** is the assigned IP address of smartbro in your area or your proxy server (in case you use one).

Every device connected to the public Internet is assigned a unique number known as an Internet Protocol (IP) address. IP addresses consist of four numbers separated by periods (also called a 'dotted-quad') and look something like 127.0.0.1.

Since these numbers are usually assigned to internet service providers within region-based blocks, an IP address can often be used to identify the region or country from which a computer is connecting to the Internet. An IP address can sometimes be used to show the user's general location.

2) while that 192.168.***.** you are referring to is the logical address of your network adapter or what we popularly know as LAN Card.

The IP address uniquely identifies computers on a network. An IP address can be private, for use on a LAN, or public, for use on the Internet or other WAN.

IP addresses can be determined statically (assigned to a computer by a system administrator) or dynamically (assigned by another device on the network on demand).

hope these answer your query.  :smiley:

Yep.. In short. That would probably the IP Address of the base station where you are homed...
