View Full Version : Win 2k tweak

02-28-01, 09:20 PM
I recently moved to a new machine with Win2k. I have tried the win2k speed tweak and it doen't increase my speed at all. When I was on win98 I could get speeds over 1400 with the tweaks from speedguide and now I cannot get higher than 1100. I have used other tweaks, manually changed the registry, etc. I tried everything I can think of but still cannot change my speed at all. Without any tweaks or changes I can get the 1100 speed. Does anyone have any suggestions? I am on a DSL line. I have tried Navas' suggestions and have tried both a GlobalMaxTcpwindow setting and leaving it as Tcpwindow size and it still doesn't change my speed a bit. No matter what I change it seems to not make a difference at all! Help.

I have used the tweak on the Navas site which only uses the TcpWindowSize instead of adding the GlobalMax setting. I have used the suggestions from Speedguide when tweaking the registry (The win2k tweak you can download, as well as following the manual settings they have on the win2k tweak page. I pinged my server and then used the calculation on this website to figure out what number to use). I also tried adding a MTU of 1500 into each of my interface settings which also did not show a change. I have taken out all of the registry tweaks and I still receive the same speed. On DslReports I receive about 1100kps/110kps but on other sites such as MSN Speed test I only receive about 400kps/55kps. I have tested it many times daily over the last week with the same results. I am using the same external modem and DSL line as I was with my old system which was running Win98 where I could receive about 1400kps ratings from all speed sites. The only hardware that changed was when I bought my new system it came with a new network card which I am using to connect to the external modem. My line should be capable of 1.5mps. I connect with dynamic IP and I am through NVBell.net. Thanks for your help, I appreciate it. Any thoughts?
