Please help me tweak with Cablenut and Optimum Online


Recommended Posts

1. Windows XP w/ SP2 running through a D-Link DI-524 wireless router and wireless card (both 802.11g 2.4 GHz up to 54Mbps)

2. My ISP is Optimum Online NY. I have no clue what the advertised speeds are.. If anyone here knows, please let me know. I greatly appreciate it.

3. I downloaded Cablenut as my tweak program. I couldn't run the test that Van Buren linked to on his sticky, because I did not know my advertised speeds.

5. Uninstalled all protocols not needed under LAN setting.

6. Nothing checked under LAN settings for IE.

7. I have the latest drivers installed and don't connect through USB. I also have Sygate running and checked thoroughly for viruses, trojans, and spyware = NONE.

Please help me tweak my connection. If there's anymore info you guys need, let me know. Thank you!

hey ledzepp14 and welcome to the forum :)

asfar as i know OOL is 10 Mbps down and 1 Mbps up

try bypassing your router, just connect your PC direct to modem via ethernet

powercycle modem, leave it off for 30 full seconds and now test speed again

also make a tweaktest, for "advertised speed" set it to 10000

VanBuren :)

Hi Van Buren, thank you for the reply. Unfortunately, I can't connect directly wired to my modem, as it is upstairs already hooked up to 2 computers. I was wondering if you could help me tweak for a wireless connection. I've also tried to put in 10000 for the tweak test but it only lets me put in 4 digits, so it could only put in 1000. I tried to do that test on #3 on your sticky.

Here are the new speed tests results:

Definitely an improvement on download speed, but still below Optimum Online average. The Upload speed is still the same. Can I further tweak these?

I did a few more speed test. Once more with the firewall on and this is what I got. It seems that the download test fluctuates results for me.

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

Then I turned the firewall of and this is what I got:

So it seems that Sygate firewall does not affect my connection speeds from what I gather from the tests. Is it possible to edit the value more in Cablenut? I have the OOL 10000 1000 settings on just like what VanBuren told me.

Upload speed is still very very slow, both with firewall on and off. I've read about ISPs capping, so this might be the reason for my very slow upload speed that is stuck on 17kB/s.

Tried 3 more download speed tests with Sygate firewall turned off and all three tests showed this + - 5 the most.

Yea, ISPs cap... that's what makes it so you can't get over your advertised speed (by much anyway)

If the connection wasn't capped, the only limit to your speed would be the capabilities of the hardware...

Ok, this is what I got:

QAM 64

Network Access Control Object ON

Power Level -6 dBmV

Yes I am on a wireless connection. It is a D-Link DI-524 802.11g wireless router.

Well unfortunately, like I've explained to VanBuren earlier, I'm unable to connect this computer directly to the modem as this computer is stuck downstairs and the modem is upstairs already hooked up to a few computers. I'm stuck with the wireless connection. Thanks by the way for all your quick responses.

Okay, so what do you get on the other computers that are connected via ethernet, do you get your advertised speeds :?:

Ok, here are the results for the computer upstairs..directly connected to the modem. I've done the exact same Cablenut tweak using OOL 10000 like I've done with my wireless connection. I've also used the patch that changes TCP limit, like VanBuren advised me to do earlier. Firewall has also been turned off and system has been scanned for viruses, trojans, and spyware = None detected. It seems that this computer's connection, eventhough directly connected, is slower than my wireless. The upload speed is the same though.. still stuck at 17 kBp/s.
