TCP options string = 020405ac01010402

MTU = 1492
MTU seems to be optimized for PPPoE... If you are not on a PPPoE connection, consider increasing your MTU to 1500 for optimal throughput.

MSS = 1452
Maximum useful data in each packet = 1452, which is equal to MSS.
MSS is optimized for PPPoE. If you are not on a PPPoE connection, consider increasing your MTU value.

Default Receive Window (RWIN) = 17424
RWIN Scaling (RFC1323) = 0 bits
Unscaled Receive Window = 17424
RWIN is a multiple of MSS
Other values for RWIN that might work well with your current MTU/MSS:
511104 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 8)
255552 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 4)
127776 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 2)
63888 (MSS x 44)

bandwidth * delay product:
Your RcvWindow limits you to: 696.96 kbps (87.12 KBytes/s) @ 200ms
Your RcvWindow limits you to: 278.784 kbps (34.848 KBytes/s) @ 500ms
Consider increasing your RWIN value to optimize TCP/IP for broadband.

MTU Discovery (RFC1191) = ON

Time to live left = 117 hops
TTL value is ok.

Timestamps (RFC1323) = OFF

Selective Acknowledgements (RFC2018) = ON

IP type of service field (RFC1349)= 00000000

Do i need to make any changes? If i do, how?(what are the steps involved)
or would it be better off with the patches at speedguide.net? (and would the patch do anything better to speed up my connection(DSL)
thz to the ppl that replied! :)

Is this a cablenut patch, what OS and is it PPPoE

03-14-01, 08:27 PM
this is no patch(like this is before i have a patch installed), i'm using WinME, and i have Network Telesystems PPPoE Adapter (NTSP3).
this is what u want, so here it is!

03-14-01, 08:34 PM
Do you need directions, I thought I gave them to you before, but then I thought you were on cable

03-14-01, 08:48 PM
You do not set MTU to 1500 on PPPoE :)

03-14-01, 08:51 PM
i know, on PPPoE i have the MTU set to 1492 so don't worry about it!!
are there any other changes i should make like RWIN etc.

03-14-01, 08:55 PM
The patch puts all the correct numbers in :)

03-14-01, 09:03 PM
Yes the RWIN is to small, time stamping is off, I would install the patch :)

03-14-01, 09:07 PM
ok then, after i install the patch i will show u my results, ok!! :)
and do u have a patch to ur connection?

This is the one you want on patch page this site: sguide_tweak_98_ME_PPPoE :)

03-14-01, 09:13 PM
k thz and i will try it
and can u please give me the site so that i don't have to look for it

http://www.speedguide.net/files/sguide_tweak_98.zip is the direct link.

You also need the faster loading of web pages patch http://www.speedguide.net/files/PH_Webtweak9x.zip and you need to backup registry again right on top of where you did it before :)

So you don't forget make yourself a copy:
Remember, at this time of night it will be slow:

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)

The patch is not installed untill you do this: - Registry patch for Windows 98/98SE or Windows ME using PPPoE. (includes a fix for 98SE ICS, as well as smaller MaxMTU, corrected for PPPoE). The patch adds all the optimum settings for Cable modem, DSL, or any similar broadband connection that has PPPoE implemented. To install, extract the file, then just right-click and choose "Install" from the Pull-down menu. You need to reboot for changes to take effect. The PPPoE patch generally applies to some xDSL lines, it is not for use with Cable modems. For additional info on PPPoE check out our Terms & Definitions page :)
