Direcway Very Slow During High Traffic Period

Recommended Posts

You guys who post download speeds of 1000 - 1500 Kb/s -- what do you see at 8:00 - 10:00 PM?

It was 6:40 PM CDT when I got the following

:::.. Download Stats ..:::

Connection is:: 265 Kbps about 0.3 Mbps (tested with 2992 kB)

Download Speed is:: 32 kB/s

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

Test Time:: Mon May 23 18:39:50 CDT 2005

Bottom Line:: 5X faster than 56K 1MB download in 32 sec

Diagnosis: May need help : running at only 32.16 % of your hosts average (direcpc.com)

Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-RPUF5XM4B

Things will only get slower until about 11:00 PM. Between 8:00 and 10:00, my download speeds will drop to 130 - 150 Kb/s. The fastest I've ever seen during a mid-morning slack time was 998.

I am running W98 SE. I have made all of Direcway's suggested tweaks. I have also made the Rev's tweaks (which did nothing).

Any advice on speeding things up would be greatly appreciated.
