Speeding up my cable


Recommended Posts

So you were paying for a 15mb plan.. and were getting 5mb... how long did you let that persist?  :shock:

I didn't. I tweaked the connection the second I had the upgrade to 15 Mbps done, I had actually reset everything to defaults on purpose to demonstrate the difference tweaking with cablenut could do. then back to my own custom settings right after. What's really amazing is Cablenut is the only utility I've found that can tweak Upload speed as demonstrated here:

Windows default settings.

:::.. Upload Stats ..:::

Connection is:: 1325 Kbps about 1.3 Mbps (tested with 2992 kB)

Upload Speed is:: 162 kB/s

Tested From:: https://testmy.net/ (server1)

Test Time:: Thu Dec 22 2005 09:43:30 GMT-0500 (Eastern Standard Time)

Bottom Line:: 24X faster than 56K 1MB upload in 6.32 sec

Diagnosis: Awesome! 20% + : 327.42 % faster than the average for host (rr.com)

Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-9S6EUTMPN

After Cablenut:

:::.. Upload Stats ..:::

Connection is:: 1927 Kbps about 1.9 Mbps (tested with 2992 kB)

Upload Speed is:: 235 kB/s

Tested From:: https://testmy.net/ (server1)

Test Time:: Thu Dec 22 2005 09:50:38 GMT-0500 (Eastern Standard Time)

Bottom Line:: 34X faster than 56K 1MB upload in 4.36 sec

Diagnosis: Awesome! 20% + : 521.61 % faster than the average for host (rr.com)

Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-8KUAWI71T

so what did the trace route do?

From Wikipedia.org:

traceroute is a TCP/IP utility which allows the user to determine the route packets take to reach a particular host. traceroute works by increasing the "time to live" value of each successive packet sent. The first packet has a time to live (TTL) value of one, the second two, and so on. When a packet passes through a host, normally the host decrements the TTL value by one, usually, and forwards the packet to the next host. When a packet with a TTL of one reaches a host, the host discards the packet and sends an ICMP time exceeded (type 11) packet to the sender. The traceroute utility uses these returning packets to produce a list of hosts that the packets have traversed en route to the destination.

The trace allows us to view the path that data takes as it leaves your PC and travels through your ISP Network and beyond.  It helps to give an indication as to whether a loss in speed is due to packet loss or latency on the network, or a (tweakable) issue originating on the PC.
