Thread: DSL speed issues

  1. #1

    Unhappy DSL speed issues

    I am using AOL DSL and i had unusually slow download speeds. Now i recently used a TCP Optimizer about a week ago and now i can download files much much faster, but browsing websites (Especially with lots of text) is incredably slow for me now. As stated before i am using AOL DSL, with an old Win 98 computer with a 750 AMD processor and 384 RAM. Any help with why my internet browser is so slow would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    I used the TCP/IP analyzer to recieve this information:

    Browser/OS = Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; AOL 8.0; Windows 98;

    TCP options string = 020405b40101040201030300
    MTU = 1500
    MTU is fully optimized for broadband.
    MSS = 1460
    Maximum useful data in each packet = 1460, which equals MSS.

    Default Receive Window (RWIN) = 5840
    RWIN Scaling (RFC1323) = 0 bits
    Unscaled Receive Window = 5840

    RWIN is 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)
    128480 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 2)
    64240 (MSS x 44)
    bandwidth * delay product:

    Your RcvWindow limits you to: 233.6 kbps (29.2 KBytes/s) @ 200ms
    Your RcvWindow limits you to: 93.44 kbps (11.68 KBytes/s) @ 500ms
    Consider increasing your RWIN value to optimize TCP/IP for broadband.
    MTU Discovery (RFC1191) = ON
    Time to live left = 55 hops

    TTL value is ok.
    Timestamps (RFC1323) = OFF
    Selective Acknowledgements (RFC2018) = ON
    IP type of service field (RFC1349) = 00000000

    Yep Aol feels that they should own your computer in exchange for crappy internet service

    ya know just like MS does when ya use windows

    now thats fine if they pay you back what your computer cost you

    I'd get a new isp dude

    btw if in canada check
    Better to have bad luck than no luck at all
    So why did I need to install xp again
