I have run everything possible and at one point I got my speed up to 110kb/s but it varied depending on time and site and since then the speed has still dropped.

Any ideas?

Hi,

I have done this butstill nothing. The line is definately ok as I've had it checked etc, but the only way the speed seems to vary is if I change the RWIN value etc but I can't seem to get the correct value to get my speed up to 220kb/s.

Is there another value I can change?

Hi,

I have managed to adjust the TCP settings in a way that my initial download speed starts off at about 400kb/s and then slowly drops down to about 50kb/s. Do you know why the speed keeps dropping and is there any way to keep it at a high speed?
