View Full Version : Rwins for Gaming vs. Surfing

03-18-01, 10:57 PM
As subject implies, I read somehwhere that rwins for gaming might want to be lower (like below 8000 kinda range) as any potential packet loss and ping related stuff is handled better at a lower rwin.

My current rwin is at 513920 here is a dsl report as well.....

* Your scaled RWIN offered as 441344
* Some tests failed.
* Use the RWIN calculator - possibly lower it
* Recommendations end.
* Detail..
* Your MTU is set ok
* You are 16 hops away
* Your remaining TTL is 51
* Your TTL is 67
* Quick packet-loss tested ok
* Your scaled RWIN is advertised as 441344
* Scaled RWIN on data packet is 513920
* End

So...I'm not sure if I should lower rwin for gaming, expecially at night..plus why does this dsl report say 441344 is my scaled rwin?

Thanks in advance for any information.

Where you have RWIN is way to high, 8000 is way to low, put it back where it was, dslr never reports corect RWIN, use our tweak tester :eek:

Hey Lobo:

Thanks for the response.

I wee you saying that the 513920 is way too high ...and 8000 is way too low... what would be your guess as to the right rwin.

I have the speed enhancer utility that suggests a setting of 373000 ( or thereabouts) Is that the number you had in mind? Or something different?

thanks again

It's a shame that UDP doesn't use or recognize Revieve Windows otherwise you might be able to tweak that factor :)
