Well I dl and installed the latest version of Cablenut, and I only get up to around 179kb/sec. Well it is also 10:40pm at night, might have something to do with it. I have @home cable. Can anyone help me improve the speed?

Thanks

MiNdSt0rM, please come back and tell us what you downloaded, 4.02 is not a stand alone program, in other words it does not work by itself

Ok, I have Windows 98 SE, and I have a 700mhz proccessor 64mb ram, and 32mb graphics card. I should be up to 300kb per sec but im not :(. I downloaded the beta 4.0 then the upgrade, 4.2. Im only getting an avg. of about 170kb per sec. I want to get up there like you guys did.

Thanks for you help. I really appreciate it.

Did you select fast cable 9x, your RWIN would be 204400, in fact to this and x out your 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.

Sir, you don't need upgrade, 4.0 works fine with 98SE, did you install the Vtcp386 patch :confused:

03-11-01, 09:17 AM
nope, should I?

You need to backup registry if you have not, very,very important, heres how:
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. 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 nothing else in this box as it is the heart of your computer, just what it says above and no more!!!!!!!!!!!!!

None of this are Cablenuts settings, I think you need to start over, you do not need 4.02 unless you are on WIN 95 or ME, you are not.
Go to add/remove in control panel and remove all of cablenuts things listed. Then do this:
First go to www.cablenut.com (http://www.cablenut.com)
Download 4.0
His patch will uninstall previous patchs
Install 4.0

Then on desktop click on cablenut 4.0
Click on ccs files
then click on cable
Select either normal cable or fast cable (See instructions)
this will enter settings
click on save to registry at bottem, reboot or it will not work.
retest and post back here, you wont answer whether or not you have installed Vtcp 386, you need it, if you have it installed you don't have to do it again, but cablenut has a link to it on his site :)

03-11-01, 10:03 AM
I just went back to the default settings by importing the original regfile, then I installed the 4.0. Now I will install the vbx thing.

You might have downloaded the patch, but it is not installed, the direction are above, Cablenut comes to this board so maybe he can help you, but you do not have his patch installed, maybe downloaded, but not installed, after you install, you have to reboot for it to work :)

Lobo
03-11-01, 10:44 AM
This is last time I am going to tell you, click on Cablenut 4.0 folder on your desktop,click on ccs, click on cable, click on fast cable 9x, at bottom of box click on save to regestry, REBOOT, retest, post back here :)

Lobo
03-11-01, 10:55 AM
I am going to leave you instructions on how to do speed test, I would print them:

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


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)

Who´s your provider (ISP): Comcast @ Home
What type of connection: Cable
No im opening up the cable_fast_9x then I click on save to regestry. Then I restart
Cablenut is the only one I have, but I did try the sguide_tweak_98_ME, but it wasnt going that fast, it improved it, but not by alot. Before I installed the sguide_tweak_98_ME I made a back up of the regedit. And since it wasn't improving it that much I imported the original settings. Then I downloaded cable nut, and Lobo helped me. And I was going really fast. Only about 200 kb per sec though. Then right after that he told me to install the MS Vtcp.386 fix for Windows 98 and I did. After that it ran really slow only about 25 to 32 times faster than a 56k. After that Lobo said I didn't have the cablenut installed. So I dl the version 4.0 of cablenut again and it unistalled all the cablenutpatches. Then I installed the cable_9x_fast again restarted, and it was still slow and Lobo said I still didnt have the cablenut installed. So after that I took off the MS Vtcp.386 fix for Windows 98 and its still going pretty slow. Oh yea, whats the adjuster?


Thanks for helping me!

First, their are 2 Vtcp386 patchs, you need to put the one with the big V on yours Vtcp386 Fix or it will not work, the adjuster is in the cablenut folder on your desktop, click on adjuster, the RWIN # should be 204400 is it :confused:

MiNdSt0rM
03-11-01, 04:49 PM
Yes I did dl the one with the big V. If your talking about the DefaultRvcWindow yes it is 204400. I did another test, here are the results

03-11-01, 05:03 PM
This is great, it's in, don't breathe, the blank boxes in adjuster just mean that default setting's are being used, you can if you have not done so, go to patch page, this site and download and install faster loading of web pages, after install (read how to install) reboot and your ready, Great :p

03-11-01, 05:18 PM

The Vtcp patch once installed is not a factor anymore.... It updates your Windows Program.
Once you install it.. forget it.
Concentrate on the Cablenut patch.
We Win/98se don't really need Cablenut 4.02 patch.
Go for the 4.0 patch and we tweak it from there.
4.0 is a file of Patches and a CCS program.
Install the patch of your choice. and if not happy with it then Run the The CCS Program to make changes.
CCS is really for more advance users or someone under the guidence of an advance user to tweak the patch loaded.
Hope this clears up some of the confusion. :D

Who´s your provider (ISP)
What type of connection is it and the cap if any...
Just to make sure you said your using the patch are you just clicking on it to install it and is the adjuster working..
Do you have anyother brodband tweaking programs on the machine if so which ones..

Well I tested downloading a game that was 24mb and cablenut shot up to 200kb right away, and Speed9x stayed at 70kb. Also I dl a song on napster at 224kb!! on napster. With cablenut. So I would say cablenut is much faster. It goes to webpages quicker too. Well im FINALLY DONE TWEAKING!! for now. heh. Thanks Lobo for helping me and keeping your patience. :D
