:( Well, after lurking around here for a few weeks, I finally decided I had to join the ranks! But this problem should really be directed to Van. I've tried just about every tweak advertised in here, Net Optimizer, CableNut, manual tweaks, all to no avail. This latest one posted here...

::.. Download Stats ..:::

Connection is:: 1923 Kbps about 1.9 Mbps (tested with 2992 kB)

Download Speed is:: 235 kB/s

Tested From:: https://testmy.net  (server1)

Test Time:: 2006/03/02 - 9:42pm

Bottom Line:: 34X faster than 56K 1MB Download in 4.36 sec

Diagnosis: May need help : running at only 37.77 % of your hosts average (rcn.com)

Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-OB8LCI3M4

is after using the CableNut OOL 10000 1000.ccs. I used be really happy with the 157x faster than 56kb dial-up. But, I can't even get close to that anymore. Van, any suggestions?

if you used to get good speed with the settings, then its not a problem with them.

try to remember what you did when speed went down

did you install any driver etc...

also test other speedtests, if you get good speed on them it most likely a problem in your route to testmy.net

also change your LAN wire between modem and PC, sometimes those can get damaged

Well, after numerous attempts to tweak my custom cablenut ccs file, I guess I'm just going to have to be satisfied with the latest results...

Although this actually is slower on the D/L side than previous tweaks, I've reached a happy medium, and I'll just have to go with it. I know RCN can be faster up & down, but I can't tweak anymore, it's driving me CrAzY!  :idiot2: Unless Eagle would like to share his secret to those profound numbers, that is? How 'bout posting your Cablenut file for us RCN users and let us see what you did to achieve those AWESOME stats!?  :azn:

BTW, RCN is located in NE USA, between the states of Massachusetts and Virginia, although I am in NE PA.~ The Minstrel

Ok, just out of curiousity, I used Speed Guide Optimizer to find my accurate latency, then made a new custom ccs file, applied it and got these results...

Not too bad  :shocked: ... I've got to be close to RCN's caps at this point. I'm happy with the download side, but I know I've had the upload speed at over 750 kbps before. Any suggestions guys?~ The Minstrel

If anyone is still following this post and are interested in a test done at Speedtest.net, here's the link to the results... 103648336.pngThis test was done to a server in Chesterbrook, PA approximately 50 miles from my location. I think I'm just going to be satisfied with the settings for now!  :grin:
