do what it says

    Q: 1 or 2+ second stall detected: (#1606)

      A: This is quite common, and not a big issue. Congestion on the Net is the cause, and this will fluctuate throughout the day/night.

      If it is a consistent finding, run a Line Quality Test and look for slow, bogged down servers (red & yellow warnings).

      The most important thing is speed. If your speeds are fine, then don't be concerned with this.

Q: Tweak Tester reports retransmissions. Why? (#705)

      A: The purpose of TCP is to cope with links that may exhibit packet loss, or may even allow packets to arrive out of order, or in duplicate.

      The tweak tester can notice packet retransmissions during the test file transfer. this is not a disaster. The Internet has weather, and the weather is not always sunny.. when there are storms, (congestion or other problems en-route), packets can get dropped and must be sent again.

      Persistent, and high number of retransmissions may also be due to a high RWIN (receive window) on your end, which is why they are reported.

      Retransmissions of data reduce throughput, reducing the speed at which you receive data. Particularly lossy links (perhaps representing ISP congestion, or even problems on your own line), play havoc with download speeds even reducing them to a crawl.

      A Line Quality Test may reveal more about the source of your packet loss problems.

Choose RWIN between 28200 and 76140 (FAQ #586)

this site might give you a different rwin to use.  use the tcp/ip analyzer  https://www.speedguide.net/index.php

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

now download and open Dr.Tcp http://www.dslreports.com/front/DRTCP021.exe

set MTU for your network adapter to 1492 and click save and exit

now reboot, also powercycle modem/ router leave it off for atleast 30 seconds

make a new speed and tweaktest

hey van have you ever seen anyone that installed cablenut and it didnt change the settings when you saved it to the registry?  i tried it on my other comp and the settings didnt change.

it always change the settings, however if your using win XP SP1, the tweaktest will show your TcpWindowsize as your "RWIN" and with SP2 it will show "DefaultReciveWindow"
