14. How can I change those settings ?

The easiest way to make changes to the TCP/IP parameters reported by the Analyzer is to tweak your Registry using our TCP Optimizer utility program, freely available for download in the Downloads section of the site. There are also single-click patches you can apply. If you'd like to get a better understanding of what those settings do and how they affect your connection speed, check our Broadband Registry tweaks pages.

How can a Mac user change those settings? Your apps are Windows-only.

Check out the Linux tweaks article... The settings should be very similar under Max OS X, there may be some minor syntax differences.

Here is a link to the article:

In Max OS X, look for the sysctl.conf file and add settings with the following syntax to be applied at boot time:

net.inet.tcp.rfc1323=1
net.inet.tcp.win_scale_factor=4

.... etc.
