I'm looking at my network adaptor, which is broadcom  440x10/100  the drive is dated  6/30/2003. I found some that seem to be  updates, but still can't figure out which one is the one I should use.

Thanks for that bit of help :)  Unfortunately it didn't help any.  Any other suggestions?

so you loaded the new driver?

sign up here and make a line quality test http://www.dslreports.com/tools

its free

"Line Packet Loss Testing

Packet loss tests on your line, including identification of any problem routers en-route to you.."

when you see result, copy whole URL adress and paste it here so we can see it

try powercycle your modem, leave it off for 30 seconds also if you have a router, bypass it and connect directly to the modem, check speed again.

if speed is still slow, email this link to your ISP and let them fix the loss

Looking at your Tweak Test results your RWIN is a mess.

If you go to SpeedGuide.net they have a wonderful TCP/IP analyzer.  https://www.speedguide.net/analyzer.php

i would start with the lowest one that it recomends and go up from there until you find the best one. Once you get that worked out some of the other issues may take care of themselves.

You can change the RWIN settings with DRTCP ... there is a link to it on the Tweak test results page.

Good Luck.

the RWIN is in range for a Win XP SP2 tweaked system with a 4 Mbps cap

Receive Window (RWIN): 448512

the analyzer read DefaultReceiveWindow in SP2 and not TcpWindowSize like before

quote from http://www.dslnuts.com/2kxp.shtml

"

1. DefaultReceiveWindow - The number of receive bytes that AFD buffers on a connection before imposing flow control. For some applications, a larger value here gives slightly better performance at the expense of increased resource utilization.

Value Type: REG_DWORD

Default: 4096/8192/8192

32. TcpWindowSize - This parameter determines the maximum TCP receive window size offered by the system. The receive window specifies the number of bytes a sender may transmit without receiving an acknowledgment. In general, larger receive windows will improve performance over high (delay * bandwidth ) networks. For highest efficiency, the receive window should be an even multiple of the TCP Maximum Segment Size (MSS).

Value Type: REG_DWORD

I powered down the modem and disconnected it from the router and  the speed  has picked up

but that's still down a great deal from where it should be,.

do a new linequality test now, without router

dern your not pingable without router, so we cant see the loss against your pc.

the speed should be alot more without router, i suggest you test with another pc if you have one avalible, and if you still get very low speed, email your ISP and attach those linequality tests.

good luck

already contacted them. they had me reun some DL tests, and the speed just kept droping. They're sending a tech over this weekend. But thanks for all the help.

open cablenut and click delete cablenut tweaks and click save to registry

reboot your pc, and make a new speedtest without router

also leave your pc with default settings when they come to your house, when they fixed the problem with loss, come back here and we can help you go even faster

For the last several days I've been getting very poor download speeds. I've had techs come and look at the lines, and have found nothing, Yesterday they changed my modem, and still the DL speeds are pathetic. I've done virus checks, as well as looked for spyware with every system I know of. Any suggestions from anyone. My ISP is comcast, and I'm currently not using a router, and just using their modem.

This is VERY likely unrelated to the settings of his machine in this case and may infact be an external "to the users" issue. I am in the Wylie area east of Dallas and COMCAST over the past few days has been absolute shit regarding stability, consistency and especially speed.  According to comcast they do not currently have a known issue and think it is 'local' (user problem) but this is obsurd. A major outage happened about a month ago in the Garland area that crippled enough 'important' users (business) that they resolved it. After that things were back on track and smooth/fast until a few days ago when things started going bad again, somewhere. I have the 6mpbs/768K package and when comcast is working, I get the full speed confirmed using this site + dslreports + university sites. Right now though it's puking along at a chunking 1.3mpbs +/-50% variance! Sickening.

Comcast doesn't seem to care that we don't get the speeds we pay for. They only seem to care that they can ping the modem using MAC so they can say "well it appears you have internet connectivity! Guess you must have some local problem!"

To me, that answer is SO FAR beyond acceptable I can't describe it. I look at it in these terms. If I went and bought myself a Porsche and realized the top speed of the car was about the same as a Pinto I would expect the dealer to either fix the broken Porsche or sell the cars at the price of a Pinto. Right now, I'm paying for a Porsche ($70/m!) but am driving a busted Pinto with black smoke pouring out the pipes...

Comcast needs to address this crap. They seem to have no known way of determining where bottlenecks/problems are happening until something major finally happens that gets their "business customers" pissed off and barking at their door about performance issues.

As an engineer I can invision M A N Y ways they could implement methods of tracing these issues better. For instance, having simple TCP server/client software written that specifically bursts/packs a data pipe with large streams (50+mbps) and monitors all aspects. The client/server modules could be placed throughout the country at major hubs. Sounds simple enough, and I've written enough TCP code to know that it actually is as simple as it sounds. Having this could allow further isolation of potential particular 'paths/routes/hops" problems that don't otherwise immediately show up on their doorstep in the form of a business saying "HEY, umm, wth? Fix this!"

Just my 2cents (left over from the $70/m sent to Comcast).

hey McCleud and welcome to the forum :)

thanks alot for that info, i didnt know it was that bad :(

i merged this thread vagarcia74, its easyer if we stick to same thread, then we know what we tested already and so on

run a new line quality test, and make sure your pingable, disable firewall or config it to allow echo requests

i have a feeling the loss is to your gateway
