cablenut......Why all the NetTrans folders anyway? I have nine, and only two with any kind of configuration besides MTU and MSS settings, and only one of those is what my network settings should be.

Wouldnít a computer lose a clock cycle or two, just trying to figure out which NetTrans to use?

I think Iím gonna delete all but the one I like.

Sorry alot of people have different net trans folders they use. Just delete the ones you don't use, and no the computer isn't going to lose a clock cycle cause it already knows which net trans folder to use...

Hey did some updating on the reg patch here is what I have added:

"DefaultRcvWindow"="254800"
"DefaultTTL"="127"
"PMTUDiscovery"="1"
"PMTUBlackHoleDetect"="0"
"Tcp1323Opts"="3"
"SackOpts"="1"
"BcastNameQueryCount "="1"
"BcastQueryTimeout "="375"
"CacheTimeout "="300000"
"MaxConnectRetries"="1"
"MaxDataRetries "="1"
"NameTableSize"="255"
"RoutingBufSize "="146432"
"RoutingPackets"="100"
"KeepAliveTime "="14400000"
"KeepAliveInterval "="500"
"MaxConnections "="200"
"SessionKeepAlive "="7200"
"SessionTableSize"="255"
"Size/Small/Medium/Large "="3"

My downloads use to start off at 300k and slowly drop down to 210k but now they stay steady through out the download.. Noticed my upload/download speeds have increased a little bit to. If you want to get info on these settings go to http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q158/4/74.ASP?LN=EN-US&SD=gn&FR=0..

dannjr
10-01-00, 03:06 AM
MaxConnections = 32-bit number
Specifies the period of time the system will wait before timing out when seeking LMHOSTS for name resolution. The minimum value is 1000 (1 second). The default is 10,000 (10 seconds).

200 is not a proper set can you tell me why you have it set to that amount.
I beleive most of your info is also backed up by this page below.
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q158/4/74.ASP

Just wondering, you got some neat sets there, that you have me looking real close at.
Like the fact that why you would want to BcastNameQueryCount & BcastQueryTimeout if your using the MaxConnections.
Like I said I'm looking real close at this set. Its not just for cable.
But its not for all connection types either

Don't get me wrong I was handed a WinME Developers disk and this is what it loaded by default right off the brand new disk.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters]
"TcpWindowSize"=dword:00426000
"MTU"=dword:000005d4

I did adjust the MTU it was set by default for 1500 but I left the TcpWindowSize alone
by the way thats 4349952 if anyone was wondering.

cool

10-01-00, 03:34 AM
I believe you got confused by the endless text on that page here is what you were looking at:

LmhostsTimeout = milliseconds

Data Type: DWORD
For Windows 98, the Data Type is a String value.

Specifies the period of time the system will wait before timing out when seeking LMHOSTS for name resolution. The minimum value is 1000 (1 second). The default is 10,000 (10 seconds).

Yep well you won't get no argument I think theres something there because heres what I came up with after staying up all nightand gained about 100+ kbps over what I had take a look.

I'm not saying its perfect I didn't exactly take allot of time to put this together otherwise DefaultMSS and MaxMSS would have matched, please adjust it if you need to. So boy's & girls with a PPPoE connection backup your registry and export your keys.
take a look at this

This gives new meaning to the learning curve. Of course yo do relize that just when we all get it figured out, Microsoft is gonna change the Tcpip stack and we'll have to start over.

had to edit:
the original file that I had posted here has been changed you gotta go to site to get it now http://microsyspro.com
It's turned out to be very reliable My D/l have gone from 1650.0kbps average to 1925.6kbps average with peak D/L's to 2500.0kbps the file name is mindspring6.zip
I will post the settings on the other thread

You wanted to know if anyone has seen any preformance change I hit a all time high three times in a roe at different sites after cleaning the cache all three times.

2589.4kbps about 500kbps over and above the max of my connection but I lost about 100kbps on my upload.
I also tested at the stupid there never right speed sites.
DSLReports was 1250 now 1470
MSN came in at 1890
2wire at 1400 had problems there
Mindspring test 2400

Average ping we'll see working on that next if you see somthing that I should change in the file I threw together for PPPoE please let me know.
I know there is a little work to do on it.
Will have to see if mindspring will like me pulling the extra bandwidth...

Thanks again
You can teach a old dog new tricks
Ya had to edit: email me dannjr@email.com if there are changes you feel that should be made for the DSL end. Like I said I did have the loss on the upload & there was a lot to take in with a short time to do it.

Hmm about "if this will work with win me or win95" It SHOULD in the article it says:

The information in this article applies to:

Microsoft Windows 95
Microsoft Windows 98
Microsoft Windows 98 Second Edition
Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition

For the tcp/ip options I covered in my patch..

If you people with win95/orME are feeling saucy (hehe) backup your

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\VxD\MSTCP folder and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Class\netTrans\ folders

and apply the patch and see if it works http://www.speedguide.net/ubb/smile.gif

10-01-00, 06:49 PM
So if you have cable, should u use Cablenut's settings or Dannjr's?

I am using win2k u think that patch would mess anything up??

Azazel
10-01-00, 07:52 PM
dannjr's settings are good except for one thing, the Rwin is way to high. I used dannjr's settings taking away the mtu changes(I'm on cable) and adding cablenut's rwin and I'm going pretty smooth considering the att broadband problems here

cablenut
10-01-00, 08:32 PM
Merc this patch will not work on win2k (sorry after I get done compeltely I might dive into a win2k patch version)

Yes you should use my patch if you have a cable connection and dannjr's if you have a dsl connection http://www.speedguide.net/ubb/smile.gif

dannjr

Yes the RWIN is way to high esp. for win98 that RWIN I put in as an example of what I found on a fresh install of a new WinME disk fresh off the burner I tried it in a win98 machine and it was just to much.
However with that setting I only lowered it about one third and I'm getting real good results right now..
A Draw back to this I usually control all the computers on my network for the amount of bandwidth I noticed tonight the computers that I used to control got out of control & the fight over speed began.
Iv said this once before. "Make sure you have a good backup of your registry".
There is no easy reversal file so if you get sick when you open your registry then don't do it. until there is a easy way to back out.
The file you get from me is listed on my site as a BETA file. The book aint out on this one yet but its starting to look good.

Note: you can play with the sizing of the entries how ever so slite you may end up locking up your machine like I have 3 or 4 times between last night and this evening.

Other note if you do make a change let us know what it was, if it worked Iv already made a change to the file and will hopfully get it out tonight. It will be more related to PPPoE.

I have a updated file on this, out at my site to save on bandwidth here, I suggest you go to the site.
I will be testing this for awhile so I imagine there will be another one out soon. For me to make it possible to D/L here would be a little nuts I think the people that have been around for a while know what I'm talking about.
I don't want to see this site go back to a crawl.
http://microsyspro.com click on the link for speeding up the connection...
My site seems to be working better now since the new server was put in.

Thanks.

The artical here and from earlier in this thread are as follows.

The information in this article applies to:

Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q158/4/74.ASP?LN=EN-US&SD=gn&FR=0

Im having good results with it at first I got real good speed but it wasent real stabil but that was just the way I had it set if your using the settings for cable then its running real good for allot of people I just got mine to behave for the DSL with PPPoE. Go check out the artical & good luck

WoW - just found this message board after I was having problems with my 3com cable modem.

Quick newbie question - where in the registery does this info go. To me it looks like .ini data - but then again I stopped messing with computers after Dos/Win3.11.

Seriously, where in the registery does all this info go?

Scottbo

cablenut
10-04-00, 02:35 PM
well to be specific in the 98x kernel operating system registry is stored in user.dat and system.dat in c:\windows\ it enters info in the follow category:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\VxD\MSTCP]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Class\NetTrans\0000] (0-12)

Scottbo
10-04-00, 03:32 PM
I have been looking at this site now for the past hour, just reading up on stuff I have NEVER even known existed.

Should I just D/L one of the registry programs that alllow me to change these settings and change them? I have Win98 and a 3Com modem so it sounds right up my alley!

Scottbo

dannjr
10-04-00, 08:28 PM
I originally posted these setting on 10/01/00
But The Rwin was way to high along with the entry "MTU"=dword: this entry needs to be removed but the TcpWindowSize stays the DefaultRcvWindow can be higher if your on Mindspring or a comprible 1.5Mb PPPoE connection. I have it set to 612720 on mine running real well keep in mind that I run a server with 10 computers on the LAN.

My D/L have been averaging 2.0Mbps 500 over what I pay for at first my uploads had been bad with these that was because of the extreemly high Rwin and the MTU = dword

My uploads have increased in speed by about 70kbps or almost 450kbps and my ping has gone down since these new settings my ping durring peak hours to the ISP was 120ms now 94ms.

Mindsprings techs and boss's gave me the green lite and told me the sky is the limit. So if I could get more reliably I would.
These settings work in Win95,Win98,Win98SE
and WinME.
My WinME is actually just a touch faster. But theres just somthing about making ME my server that I just can't do right now.

I want to get back to Win2k I was so close until these settings came out.

Oh my actuall MaxMSS is 1424. Yes I did try it up higher.
As you can see I didn't have to change things to much to get my connection to run fast

Cablenut is doing the Cable and I'm doing the DSL the DSL is similar but different
There is a keep alive issue that tends to lock up the D/L durring a DSL connection
So to answer your question the settings above your comment is primarly for DSL PPPoE

Yes the space is needed here before I thought the space wasn't needed and that didn't work that was the bugs I had to work out..

First of all, how did you EVER find out that a space was needed there?

Secondly, I've noticed you changed the values for DefaultTTL, BcastQueryTimeout, and CacheTimeout was your previous version? Did this create a marked improvement or was it a little fine tuning for stability? Just wondering.

These patches have seemed to have made a nice impact on my machine. (@home with Win95b and Winsock2 update installed.) This was tesing at 2AM..hopefully i'll see the same results at 9PM. http://www.speedguide.net/ubb/smile.gif

As an aside, I've noticed that bypassing my proxy server sends my times completely down the crapper, so I'm staying on the proxy for now.

Thanks again for the tweaks!!

I'm using windows Me and have tried these tweaks. I have found it definately speeds up my connection but I have kept my TTL at 127 as a value of 64 seems to have more of a delay when web pages open. I'm still testing different settings though but cablenuts tweak has definately improved my speed.

10-06-00, 02:23 PM
Yeah guys test out this 64 and 127 ttl thing http://www.speedguide.net/ubb/smile.gif

Looks like this is really gonna rock. Is there a difference in the ttl thing. From 64 to 127.
How about in WinME the defaultrcvwindow is 372300 and in this patch it is 254800. What difference does that make. Just curios thats all. Far from me to try and poke holes in this. If it works better than great.

cablenut
10-06-00, 04:35 PM
Im not sure about the ttl thing I have heard around some forums that 127 may improve speed. I tried it and didn't notice anything really different so I set the patch and mine to 64 which is the windows nt default ttl. The rwin for me appears to be a good mix between stable and high speeds if you get to high of a rwin window it isn't going to be as effcient..

Powerhawk
10-06-00, 04:43 PM
Righto thanks for the quick response. I'm gonna try splitting the diff between the two and see how that works for a bit. Will let you know.
Thanks again.

DefaultTTL = 8-bit number

Data Type: String

Specifies the default time to live (TTL) for IP packets from Microsoft TCP/IP. The default is 32.

This is from Microsoft the top end is, as I remember 255 so what ever makes your connection rock
I run 117 as the Default TTL for my mindspring connection on the PPPoE the suggested amount is 96 from mindspring also the suggested MaxMSS is 1412 with a 1452MTU this is what I get directley from mindsprings techs.
Like I said what ever makes your connection Rock.
Just keep in mind the Default value to fall back on and always backup your registry in fact export the key if you need to from the editor.

By the way I increased my RoutingBufSize to 183040 now I rock stable at 1972.2kbps sometimes more.
I had this as high as 2900.0kbps but had no stability.
I pay for a 1.5Mbps

But if you have the space in there, it changes the name of the key. Like if u import it with the space, and without the space, you'll have two of the same keys in your registry, just one with an extra space in it. If the space is in it, I don't think it's a valid key anymore. Can anyone else put their views on this? I'm not knocking the patch, I think it's good, I'm just wondering if those spaces should be there or not.

When I export the reg entry from regedit it puts the spaces in. If I go though and take the spaces out the patch doesn't work. You also won't have double entries in your registry I have added this file over my exsisting settings with no double entries it just changes the current entries... I hope I have cleared it up about the stupid spaces http://www.speedguide.net/ubb/smile.gif

When I add the file in there with the stupid spaces, it does add double entries. So I have to go in and either remove the ones with the spaces or the ones without. I'm on WinME, I don't know if that makes a diff.

Stupid winME I can re-add the patch in 98 and it doesn't create double entries Does taking the spaces out work? if so i'll probably have to cook up a winme reg file..

The only time it will create double entries is if I have those previous entries in there WITHOUT the spaces. For example, If I use your patch that has the spaces twice, it will just overwrite the settings because they are the same keys (because they have the spaces). But if I remove the spaces and add the settings, it will create two settings because it imports it exactly the way it is. It will create the key with the space on the end of it, if that's the way it is in the file.

Just in case you need to remove the settings that I use for the PPPoE then make up a file in note pad called default.inf and copy & paste this into it save it.
Rt click on it and install this should remove all the new settings that had been put in from my end.[Version]
signature=$CHICAGO$

[DefaultInstall]
DelReg=Delete_Old_Tweaks

[Delete_Old_Tweaks]

HKLM,System\CurrentControlSet\Services\VxD\MSTCP,Size/Small/Medium/Large

HKLM,System\CurrentControlSet\Services\VxD\MSTCP,RoutingBufSize
HKLM,System\CurrentControlSet\Services\VxD\MSTCP,RoutingPackets
HKLM,System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters,TcpWindowSize

Oh I forgot to say you have to copy from
signature=$CHICAGO$ down to TcpWindowSize

The other thing is you will get double entries with the spacing if one file had it and the other didn't aint that cool I have had this in the past I really hate when you end up with 14 extra lines you gotta read then it makes it real messy

So no Space

The server is now up with the new inf's I have tested these and they work.. here is a few notes about them...

A couple things about the old patches The remove inf will not remove some of the settings because of spaces added to the old .reg file so you will have to manually remove some of the settings from [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\VxD\MSTCP] and [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Class\NetTrans\] but once the registry is clear of the old patch the new patch can be removed and added nicley. I have noticed the remove inf removes all of the reg settings but it leaves the last \Nettrans\ Folder MaxMss setting in there I do not know why.

I am sorry about this .reg screwup as I didn't know about it

Well about the changing of ttl, bcasttimeout, and cache timeout these were tweak for more of stability then speed but you might see a speed increase from it to. As for the spaces in the reg I made a reg file with the spaces and applied it rebooted and noticed it had not changed my settings I made a file with the spaces applied it rebooted and noticed it had changed my settings.. As for crappy geocities I will put it on a better host so you guys can download it..

Cablenut--you da bomb!!. I thought I had this baby tweaked out pretty good, but this tweak took my connection from 278Kbytes/sec at the same Lucasarts ftp site. to a rightteous 363 KBytes/sec. This is no cache, straight ftp connection average speed. and the other posts were correct about a pretty constant conncetion speed. thanks again for all your trying all possibilities!!

Well Im on hold for a few day's I couldn't understand why the tweaking wasn't going to even the unstable end where I got the DSL to run up to 2900.0kbps it turns out that when the Cisco router blew up in Chatanooga they re-routed everyone through and older one so the best I can get right now until Cisco can get it fixed is 2100.0kbps so I guess I have to wait a week or more on that.
So now I have a bunch of junk in the reg I got to put back in the good stuff that I had in there prior to the blow up.
