Looking good.... I am not into all that tweaking stuff... It doesnt seem to help up here in chicagoland.. That upload is really something to be proud of! I wish I had that!

That is a great speed from COMCAST!! Here is mine:

Well bdodom if you like tweaking (which I love) you should research more about what values do what and which ones are useful and which are useless. I was a complete n00b a couple of years ago but after just plain milling aroung, curiosity, and trial and error (yes I have totally screwed up my connection) I have pretty much conquered the unconquerable! If you do decide to pursue more knowledge of this subject I will let you in on a couple of things.

1) You really only need to change a couple values to make a difference. You do not need to change 50 things!

2) These values are the important ones: TCP window size, MTU, and RTT Avg. (which is round trip time average) and scaling enabled if you have broadband which you do obviously do.

Go to www.dslreports.com and they have tools to help you. In the left hand column you want to go into the tools menu. Then you need to run the tweak test about 5 times and get the average of these 5 results. The average is listed under the "more information" tab on the bottom of the results page. Once this info opens up look in the right hand column for your RTT Avg. (remember to get 5 results and average them). Once you have your RTT Avg. all you need is your correct TCP window size. There are usually 3 possible values: 1480, 1492, and 1500. Look at the tweak test result to see which you are using. Then at the same web site (not sure where?) there is an MTU calculator which automatically spits out and MTU based on the values you input. The only values you need to input are the TCP window size and the RTT Avg. which are both obtained from the tweak test at www.dslreports.com.

Wish you luck because I thought the stuff was a joke until I really started to learn what did what. Pretty cool now. You might want to back up your registry before making any changes. This is a given!

I will check back to see how things are and if you have a question.

PS - Make sure you save this MTU for future use so you do not have to do all this stuff again! Good luck!

Just thought I would throw one of my results in for you. Something to shoot for :D
