Any tips for making this any faster?

Cox just upgraded Northwest Arkansas from 128/1024 to 540/4060 service and my speeds are consitant with the below results.

Any advice or tweek settings to maxmize my throughput?

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

Connection is:: 3357 Kbps about 3.4 Mbps (tested with 1013 KB)

Download Speed is:: 410 KB/s

Tested From:: http://www.testmy.net/

Bottom Line:: 60 times faster than 56K you can download 1MB in 2.5 second(s)

:lol: HI ya NoShow. I'm alittle further North from you, Bentonville actually.

Yeah I'm glad to see that Cox finally put Arkansas next on the list of places to upgrade, seems that they are going region by region til they get their entire network upgraded to the faster speeds.

At any rate, I'm going to look at his guide later tonight when I've got a chance to sit down and stay in front of this thing for more than two minutes. never enough time to do anything...

ttyl..

Thanks VanBuren. I just discovered testmy.net and I gotta tell ya, it seems to be better than dslreports speed tests.

You guys got a good thing going here. I will be coming back to test and participate in the forums often.

Yeah they upgraded our's a couple of weeks ago, but watch out cause they are still working the bugs out. Although it's a hell of a lot faster than what we had before.. :) They told me yesterday that it's probably going to take them at least a few/couple more weeks to get everyone's right. I can test my download with my firewall and antivirus going and I stay at 4 - 4.2 but with it off I can hit over 5 so I'm happy with it. Also make sure that you don't have any Spyware aor Adware on your puter cause that can slow it down too. Take Care! :)

No spyware or adware now, scanned real good last night with multiple progs. I had some on this thing, but all seems to be well now.

I've tested several times with my antivirus and firewall on and off. The speed tests are about the same for me. Around 3.0 to 3.3 meg on the download.

I've tweaked alittle and don't seem to see much of an improvement.

Ok, I've got cablenut, and looked at your guide, my mss is 1460, my rwin is 27740. My upload is capped at 800 download capped at 5040. Everything looks good as far as tweaking, running the 768/5000 settings with my rwin,mss send and recieve windows modified per your guide VanBuren. I'll include a screenshot of cablenut settings just in case. I'm also including two back to back speed tests. I'm just not seeing speeds any better than that, and I've got 5 meg service. Hope you have some idea as to what is going on?

heya mike

every thing looks good but RWIN value, that value is way too low, maybe you calculated with too low latency, (200-300 ms is normal for calculator) i will add this to my FAQ next time i update it.

anyway do like this, load the 5000 768 file again and do not change anything but Defult send Window, set it to 68608 instead of 98304

click save to registry

and reboot

good luck

VanBuren :)

cool, when pinging your isp you need to have 2-3 fast downloads running to get the ping for calculator, a common value is between 200-300ms when you using all your bandwidth

VanBuren :)

Oo... even with all my download bandwith taken my ping to my isp remains the same lol

:lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::wink:

Nice, very nice.... 8)

VanBuren, the fact behind using all your bandwidth and then pinging your isp is so that you can factor in the highest latency, if not then I guess I don't understand.

At any rate I've used the value of 68608 on default send window and my dl tests are about the same :cry:

Any more ideas :?::?::?

you know mike some of your southeren isp's have gone to turning off their icmp ports so as not to get a (dos) denial of service attack as with my isp. I can't send any packets larger than 996 bytes before the transmission starts to defrag so in reality you can't even set your (mtu) correctly or your (mss) so it is almost impossible to set an accurate Rwin or a snd-win in your tcp/ip stack. so being able to ping with at least 1496 bytes of data is very important also your firewall could be holding you back from reaching your advertised up and downloads. Thanks Fred :(

Heya mike

I think its time to call your ISP and let them fix it

1st delete your tweaks by clicking delete cablenut tweaks and click save to registry+ reboot, and when they come to your hose they have something to work on reaching 4 Mbps

when you get your speed around 3.6 Mbps without tweaks, then you load this tweak again and get your 4 Mbps or more hehe

good luck

VanBuren :)
