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) = 65535
RWIN Scaling (RFC1323) = 0 bits
Unscaled Receive Window = 65535
Note: Under Windows 9x, if you have RWIN set to any other value, and the Analyzer reports 65535 you might need to install the MS Vtcp386 fix.
For optimum performance, consider changing RWIN to 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)

this is my test.. plz take a look at it..
plz advice how to change it to make the speed faster...
i did try to download the Vtcp.386, but nothing else changed..the result is the same.
by the way my os is win. 98 second edition

Good Morning!
What patch or patches have you applied besides the Vtcp.386 update? :)

Lobo
03-18-01, 07:47 AM
Sometimes you have to reboot 3 or 4 times for the Vtcp386 Fix to take try that rebooting, your RWIN number will be higher than 65535 when it takes Also your MTU discovery must be set to on, do this:
Please go to this http://www.dslreports.com/front/drtcp.htmlRL
Download DR. TCP to your desktop
Where it saids adapter settings, select your adapter
Where it says Windows sclaing- yes
Where it says Selective Acks-yes
Path MTU Discovery - yes
Black Hole Detection - No
TTL-64 or 32 (up to you) No affect on speed.

Where it says Time Stamping, yes
click apply
Reboot for changes to take affect

Do not change any numbers in this box unless you know what you are doing.
A blank box only means that the default setting is being used
Where it says Path MTU Discovery-must say YES :)

Good job, it's in your good to go, great :cool:

Darren Wang
03-18-01, 04:54 PM
lobo thanks ^^
but just one more question
is it possible that i can speed it up around 500kBytes/s

Lobo
03-18-01, 04:57 PM
Yes it's possible but you have got to do alot of reading at microshaft :)

Darren Wang
03-18-01, 04:59 PM
lobo
yeah i see,
just wondering what's the average speed for using cable connection

Lobo
03-18-01, 05:08 PM
It varys for so many different factors CPU size, RWIN number, this time of night is not time to test anyway, nothing else running, no Norton stuff for sure:
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)

What are you doing on this thread, start a new one as other is getting long, I get about 600KBytes down :)

Darren Wang
03-19-01, 03:42 AM
just wondering
after i uninstalled the cablenut4.0
i can't get my default setting as before
my connection is slower than my orignal ....what would this happen
if i decide to uninstall the 4.0 in the future.. how do i get my orignal setting back?

Lobo
03-19-01, 07:48 AM
Remove Cablenut, inside 4.0 on desktop is a unimstaller which will take you back to windows default in speed settings, just apply, then apply the speed then that you were using :)

Darren Wang
03-19-01, 09:50 AM
lobo
i did that, but i tested the speed result after uninstalled
it's actually much slower than my default
what would that happened?

Darren Wang
03-19-01, 09:52 AM
also, if i install the win.98se again
what would that do to the registry?

Darren Wang
03-19-01, 01:20 PM
lobo
need help from u
right now my speed is my default speed,but the
cablenut 4.0 is still there
i didn't unistall it, i just reinstall my win.98se
then what can i do now....
plz help
i tired to unistalled the 4.0, but it turns out the speed is much slower than my default

Lobo
03-19-01, 01:29 PM
Go to control panel, add/remove programs and select Cablenut 4.0, remove and take are test here http://forums.speedguide.net/optd.shtml and post results here :p

Darren Wang
03-19-01, 01:46 PM
lobo
can the problem be the vtcp386?
since i reinstall the win.98se
btw,my icq just went down...can that have anything to do with vtcp , connection or my pc's problem?

Lobo
03-19-01, 01:49 PM
ICQ is down for everyone, now post results so I can see where your at :)

First I would backup registry, cablenut is not in there, heres how to backup:
This is a must unless you the future in want to format because you did not do it, please do this. First bring up REGEDIT, type REGEDIT in your run box and hit OK.
Under Registry at the top of the box, click on that, now click on Export Registry File, a box will come up asking where you want to export it to, just put it in your C drive, then name it at the bottem of box, Registry plus date. Click on ALL at the bottom so it copies all of your registry.
Click on save.
Now if you ever get in trouble or want the old regestry back, bring REGEDIT back up and click on Registry and click on import registry file, go to your C drive and click on registry and click open, reboot and your good to go.
Anytime you add a new program, backup again, any program, back it up to the same place as the last one, it will overwrite it. If you do not backup after each new program is instaled you will not have those setting's in regestry if you have to backup for some reason.
Do this 2 times, one to save as default, the other to update as neccessary

Do nothing else in this box as it is the heart of your computer, just what it says above and no more!!!!!!!!!!!!!
OK whos speed patch are you going to install :)

Lobo
03-19-01, 02:07 PM
Remember to come back and get faster loading of web pages as cablenuts uninstaller unimstalled it, here how:
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.
:)

Darren Wang
03-19-01, 02:11 PM
ok lobo
i just backup my registry
but i still can't get my default speed back
i don't know what patch should i use
i got the vtcp386 & mtupatch98
what do i need now..

Lobo
03-19-01, 02:13 PM
I'll leave guidelines:
1. You probaly need to PRINT these instructions!!!!!!!!!!!!
Alot of people are downloading and unzipping speed patch, see directions for installation, if it is not installed, it no workie.
Go to main page on Speedguide, go to patch page (Listed on left)
2. Download the faster loading of webpages for your OS, download the speedpatch for your OS, becarefull, there are alot of patches on this page. Please read installation instructions for these patchs on patch page.Please read how to install speed patch.
3. Download the back to default patch for your OS, do not install this patch, just download it in case you ever want to change patches.Please ead instructions on patch on how to install speed patch.
4. Download Vtcp386 Fix patch if you are running WIN 98 or 98SE and install (Big V). Additionally, if your OS is Win 95, you will also need to download and install the vtcp386 .zip and the Windows Socket Two patch.
5. Go to http://forums.speedguide.net/optd.shtml bookmark this page as you may wish to return. Run tweak tester, check check connection, turn off firewalls, if you have one, copy the results by highlighing everything in the box with your mouse, then hit Ctrl & c, with your key board, come back to Speedguide and in same post you were in reply, when box comes up , cursor blinking at start of box hit Ctrl & v, this will copy results in box so I may look at them.
7. I do not recommend adding any other patches, all these tests change by the minute so don't be fooled an start adding patch after patch.
8. The best time to test for speed is early in the morning when no one (or not many) people are on the net.
9. Nothing should be running during any test, no virus stuff, firewalls,
and always clear (Delete, no this will not harm your system) your temp internet files before each test, not once during testing, after each test.
10. Do not add other speed patches on top of each other, always go back to default before trying another patch, I am aware of only one patch that will remove previous patch without having to return to default.
11. In the future, here are some other sites you may wish to visit, go to www.testmyspeed.com. (http://www.testmyspeed.com.) Please bookmark that page as well as www.pcpitstop.com (http://www.pcpitstop.com) so you may return. Also another good dowload site would be www.happypuppy.com (http://www.happypuppy.com) click on 10 demos and a large download file, do not download the whole file, just most of it.
12. You may in the future wish to go to www.AnalogX.com (http://www.AnalogX.com) and download Net Stat Live, run this while downloading a large file.
13. Please take your time and good luck. I would suggest at least 128 RAM and read up on all this, but be care full.
14. The most accurate way of testing speed is downloading large file as explained above from somewhere like www.happypuppy.com (http://www.happypuppy.com) (not all of it, just most of it). All other speed test sites will vary, www.AOL.com (http://www.AOL.com) is another fast server, you may download from this site also, remember to delete temp internet files before doing test. Try both sites as 1 may be having problems.
When refering to speed Kb is Kilobits, KB is Kilobytes Divide by 8 kilobits to get kilobytes.
Also you may wish to download Dr.TCP from www.dslreports.com (http://www.dslreports.com) to adjust MSS, MTU. RWIN and other numbers in future, this is for advanced people and I do not recommend changing any numbers that patches put in.

RUN DEFRAG AT LEAST EVERY 2 DAYS
If you are running WIN 98 or SE, once a week run Sys file checker to make sure you have all your files, all you really need to worry about are Windows files and subfolders. Run, help for more information


CHECK BACK EVERY SO OFTEN FOR UPDATES

but now after i installed the 4.0 back on, the result turned from 14KB to 408KB
wouldn't it be from 131KB to 408KB?
