Anything I can do to speed things up?

Recommended Posts

I'm brand new here and would like to see if I can increase my speed.. My system is an Athlon 64 running at 2.8 ghz, 512 mb RAM, with Win 2K. I have Comcast and use a D-Link hub as a firewall. Comcast just installed a new Terayon modem and it's plugged inot the D-Link, then into my NIC card. Here's the speed result tests:

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

Connection is:: 2589 Kbps about 2.6 Mbps (tested with 1496 KB)

Download Speed is:: 316 KB/s

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

Test Time:: Sat Feb 5 08:11:57 PST 2005

Bottom Line:: 46X faster than 56K 1MB download in 3.24 sec

Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/id-T8V1HY9S0

I also posted my HiJack This log on Virtual Doctor and the geeks there said it looks good.. Let me know what you think..

Thanks.. of many of the things on the list, I have done these, except the Cablenut tweaks. I have not downloaded this program nor changed the settings. I am not a geek and am a little nervous about using this program especially if it causes any system problems. I run Win 2K on my Athlon 64 system with plenty of RAM etc.. I have used Crap Cleaner often, and have Ad Aware and Spyware Blaster too.. I just changed the NIC card settings to 100mb full duplex as stated, since I use a DLink router between the modem and nic card.. If you can assist with the Cablenut deal in order that I don't disrupt a system that runs well, I'd appreciate it.. Other than that, all firmware is the latest and my Win 2K is fully updated and scanned of viruses or spyware.

Thanks!  :D

try this

download and install cablenut https://testmy.net/forum/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=1013.0;id=64

download this attached file, unzip it to C:ProgramCablenut

open cablenut adjuster, in top left corner click file, click load custom file, browse to C:ProgramCablenut and dubbleclick on the file you unzipped

now click save to registry and reboot your pc

make a new tweaktest and post URL again

make new speedtests, use 2992 KB test downstream and 1492 KB test upstream

Sorry, but am having difficulty following your directions.. When I open the Adjuster, then go to File, the menu says "Open Custom Settings File". When I click there, the folder is "CCS" and when I click on this, the options are "Cable, DSL, etc".. Not sure where to go as when I go to the cable folder it has about 4 choices there.. What am I doing that's different from your instructions as it's not the same..

Thanks again..

I got one more suggestion. Were it says Tcp13230pts, I think you should put 1. Do you agree Van Buren :?::D

you only need to set windows scaling if your TcpWindowsize and GlobalMaxTcpWindowsize is above 65535

quote from www.dslnuts.com

"23. Tcp1323Opts - This parameter controls RFC 1323 time stamps and window-scaling options. Time stamps and window scaling are enabled by default, but can be manipulated with flag bits. Bit 0 controls window scaling, and bit 1 controls time stamps.

Value Type: REG_DWORD
