Best Tweaks For Fios

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

Verizon is coming to my house in a couple hours to install FIOS, and im psyched!!! I have read a lot of posts in this forum, and a lot of people usually mention, "OK, these are my scores after tweaking...."

What are these tweaks about? I read something about the cablenut tool and using it to tweak, but exactly which tweaks are handy for FIOS. If I tweak my computer, will that only speed up my computer, or the entire FIOS connection and all the other computers connected to it? I have about 10 network devices connected to my network, including a mix of both Win XP and Mac OS X. Please post tweaks that have worked for you to improve both upload and download speeds.

Thanks,

Conrad

I used your cable nut tweak settings Halo Box, and it gave me an extra 400-500k on the up,  running tests through testmy.net .      Appreciate it man
