My download speed has been very low for some reason lately, and i just reformatted and it didnt seem to fix anything, its actually slower.  I ran a registry cleaner and it got rid of a few problems. Then i tried Robust ISB but it doesnt speed it up at all.

Im using windows 98 and alltel is my isp.

about the "target unpingable" thing -- depends on what ISP you have and where you are located... when I was on the network at ASU, I couldn't be pinged and I'd get messages like that all the time because they blocked ICMP pings, so you might have a similar situation.

I already have my system tuned a bit using BroadbandOptimizer v1.5 for OSX, and that changes a few values... I think it's working, as my brother's untuned computer gets 1.5mbit while I get 2.5-3mbit. I couldn't really get much out of the guide VanBuren posted, as most of the values seemed to be named differently... don't know why, I had thought that most of the core stuff is the same across unix variations.
