Sounds like you have program leaking memory,
take this test first and post here, x out IP address:
1. Go to http://forums.speedguide.net/optd.shtml and click on check connection.
2. Copy all this by highlighting everything in box with mouse
(you may have to make box smaller. To copy contents of box, highlight, then hit Ctrl & c, on your keyboard, when you return to Speedguide in reply box, with cursor blinking, hit Ctrl & v, this will copy contents in box so I may look at it. Thank you.
X out your IP Address as we don't want world to know this info

TCP options string = 020405b401010402

MTU = 1500
MTU is fully optimized for broadband.

MSS = 1460
Maximum useful data in each packet = 1460, which is equal to MSS.

Default Receive Window (RWIN) = 64240
RWIN Scaling (RFC1323) = 0 bits
Unscaled Receive Window = 64240
RWIN is a multiple of MSS
Other values for RWIN that might work well with your current MTU/MSS:
513920 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 8)
256960 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 4)
128480 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 2)

bandwidth * delay product:
Your RcvWindow limits you to: 2569.6 kbps (321.2 KBytes/s) @ 200ms
Your RcvWindow limits you to: 1027.84 kbps (128.48 KBytes/s) @ 500ms

MTU Discovery (RFC1191) = ON

Time to live left = 116 hops
TTL value is ok.

Timestamps (RFC1323) = OFF

Selective Acknowledgements (RFC2018) = ON

IP type of service field (RFC1349)= 00000000

Who do you have your service with, do you have speed patch installed. :)

Since you dou not have default I am going to send you someplace else for a good speed patch that will take your registry back to default first, if you are still having problems loadings web pages we will deal with that later do this first:
First go to www.cablenut.com (http://www.cablenut.com) , click on software at top of page
Download 4.0 (Only users of WIN 95 and WIN ME need 4xx to 4.02 too, both files go in same folder 4.0 & 4.02)
His patch will uninstall previous patchs
Install 4.0
If you are running WIN 95 or ME then install 4.02 in same folder as 4.0
Then on desktop click on cablenut 4.0
Click on ccs files
then click on cable
Select fast cable
this will enter settings
click on save to registry at bottom, reboot or it will not work.
(NOTE) If you are running WIN 98 or SE, you need to download and install Vtcp386 for patch for 4.0 to work. (You do NOT neeed this)
If you decide to remove Cablenut's patch, use uninstaller in Cablenut 4.0 folder on desktop. This will take you back to Windows default.
Retest and repost so I can see if patch is in

After posting results of tweak tester to see if patch is in do this:
Go to main page this site, select patches on left side of page,
go down until you see Web Patch - faster loading of Web Pages
Select the one for your OS, and download.
To install, click on what you just downloaded-unzip to program files, go there and click on it, click yes and reboot, your done.

How do do speed test
1. The best time is early in the morning (3 AM - 6 AM)
2. Make sure defrag has been run so no files are fragmented
3. Delete Temp internet files, not while testing, but after each test. IE browser, click tools, internet options, click on delete files and no this will not harm system, just get rid of temp files
4. Go to a fast server such as www.happypuppy.com (http://www.happypuppy.com) and click on 10 demos, select a LARGE file to download (not all of it of download, just most of it, before you click cancel) this will show you how fast you are downloading, it's not going to be quick except except early in morning when not many people on net. I recommend you go to www.analogX.com (http://www.analogX.com) and download Net State live, run this while downloading as it will give you avg of your download speed.
5. Probably the most important, nothing can be running during test, no firewalls, no virus stuff, no ICQ, no AIM (some of you may have to go into BIOS to disable virus scanner, nothing running except Net Stat live
Scheduled tasks will run disk defrag, 98 & SE in Taskbar, WIN ME in control panel
The people who want speed surfing or doing whatever must close all other programs.

Or if you wish you may go to www.testmyspeed.com (http://www.testmyspeed.com) and do one of the online tests, these vary to much for me but you may like them. Another one is at www.dslreports.com/tools (http://www.dslreports.com/tools)
And I still need to know who you get your cable from and if you have their software on your puter

Make sure you download 4xx to 4.02, this is for WIN ME :eek:

i recently reformatted my hard drive and got cable internet. Now after being on my computer for 10min or less or maybe more my computer slows down. Things like my fill rate drop if i change the window the window will slowly appear from top to bottom. I downloaded something called memturbo 2 from memturbo.com and it shows that my ram drops down after my computer has started to slow. MY computer gets so slow taht its inopreatible and i have to restart. any suggestions for what could be wrong or what i can do to help this problem

Go to the other download site for Microsoft. They have service pack 2 for 5.1 Ie. Much better. Which is www.microsoft.com/downloads/search.asp? (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/search.asp?) Click on sort by date it is next to the box with your os in it. This will bring the update up faster for you. GoodLuck!

Plus try this program. It will work in me to. just have to use win98 settings. It is Cachman4.1. First unload the mem program you have now. You can get it at www.outertech.com (http://www.outertech.com)
You can use it settings or figure out ones that work great for your settings. I use it and love it. Never have a proublem with mem loss.
