Some advice please anyone

Recommended Posts

I just switched to a different fiber ISP here in tampa, Rapid Systems.  That supplied me with a static IP instead of the PPPoE setting Verizon had in their package.  Does anyone know or have had experience with tweaking static IP connections, Im not sure if its the same as tweaking with the Verizons FIOS, as I am still new to using tweaking tools.  This is what I am currently getting on testmy.net  : 

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

Any help will be much appreciated thank you.

hey Runna and welcome to the forum :)

your MTU is probl changed to 1500 now so you need another cablenut file

open cablenut, click delete cablenut tweaks and click save to registry

download this http://www.dslreports.com/front/DRTCP021.exe

open it and make sure all fields is blank, scroll in the list of network adapters and make sure there is no value set for MTU, now click save and exit

reboot your PC and run this analyzer http://www.dslreports.com/tweaks and check your MTU

I just used DRTCP, and set MTU to blank and set it to the current NIC Adaptor.  I also used 251120 as the TCP Recieve Window, this was the recommended TCP window from using the tweak test on www.dslreports.com.      This is the current download test results :

I just used the Miranda Speed Test site located in Virginia, and this was the result :

Checking for Middleboxes . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .  Done

running 10s outbound test (client to server) . . . . . 1.89Mb/s

running 10s inbound test (server to client) . . . . . . 2.66Mb/s

The slowest link in the end-to-end path is a 10 Mbps Ethernet subnet

Information: Other network traffic is congesting the link

This was Atlanta Speakeasy speed test : 5689 down / 1794 up

And finally testmy.net :

I called up tech support, they told me to try the speed tests later in the day.

Used your Cable Nut Tweak setting,  results :

I tested testmy.net  5 times, got between 8000-9000 mostly, twice went just over 10000.

Im a bit skeptic about the message from Miranda "Alarm: Duplex mismatch condition exists: Host set to HD and Switch set to FD"

Im hoping this is just a congestion problem for today and going to do more testing tonight in hopes that this changes otherwise Im going to change to the 5mb /2 mb package, I changed to this ISP because I hated verizons routing out of Tampa.

Tried using my old Linksys BEFSR41 cable/dsl router, which didnt seem to want work well even after firmware upgrade,  I then switched back to the D-LINK 604 router that was provided by Verizon, and am now getting these results :

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

Not sure if it was congestion with the tests before, cant seem to get any faster, not sure if there is anything else I can change with cable nut settings

what duplex mode are you running your NIC in? Half or full?

you can try increasing DefaultReceiveWindow, but i daubt it will help much, the problem is most likely in the route

test this as your DefautReceiveWindow 819200, if it dosent help, just change back...

also make a tracert to testmy.net

start-run-cmd

tracert testmy.net and hit enter

when done, rightclick choose all and hit enter

now paste all here
