Im asking alot of questions cuz Im getting ADSL in like tomorrwo or after tomorrow.

if it was 384k down how would I ping?
and can u tell me like in 2 days how to tweak?

yes i have adsl from mindspring max
I ping under 45 on TRIBES games and on quake 3 around 50.
I download FILES at average about 300kbps
yes tweaks that i downloaded worked. http://www.speedguide.net/ubb/tongue.gif

Is your 384k up or down?? If its down, your upload is probley about 80 or 90k. Meaning you will not ping as low as i normally do. Maybe ping around 120-140.

PS - About my earlier question...no one needs to answer it. I found out already.

thx all...

Not a lot you can do for your Download and Upload settings. Which is kind of a bummer.

You see, those settings are altered by your provider, a lot of times they really put serious restrictions on it because they have so many customers. Generally however those are great settings http://www.speedguide.net/ubb/smile.gif

You see, I am he who fought with Cogeco@home to get the Cable Modem settings around here from 128K/UL changed... and lost http://www.speedguide.net/ubb/frown.gif

Not with DSL madman (Restrictions are only on cable. DSL is not shared its private)

Anyways you can get the tweaks from this website. Follow the directions on there...i dont wanna give u directions and mess anything up.

You will ping maybe 100 or even down to 70 or 80. (Which is pretty good)
So i suggest u look around this site. They helped me :}:}
good luck
