    Try thease in the sg optmizer below me to download and install


    check - custom settings
    network adapter selection -
    check modify all adapters
    maxmtu 1500
    TTL - 64
    TCP Receive Window 128480
    MTU Discovery - yes
    Black Hole Detect - no
    Selective Acks - yes
    Max Dup ACKs - 2
    TCP 1323 windows scailing is checked

    Other Settings tab:

    Max Connections per Server - 10
    Max Connections per 1.0 Server - 20
    Lan Browsing Speedup - optimized

    Then select "Apply Changes" and reboot to take effect.



    1. Under your LAN connection - properties - general tab, uninstall all the protocols there that you do not need.



    2. Open IE and select tools - internet options - connections -

    LAN settings, make sure NOTHING there is checked.



    3. ALWAYS connect your modem via ethernet (NIC) and make sure you have the latest drivers for your NIC from the manufacturer. Set your NIC duplex mode to 10mb half duplex for Cable, for DSL it is ISP dependent unless you are using a router, if so then set it to 100mb full duplex for both Cable & DSL (the instructions are in my Help & Tips link). If you are using a router make sure you have the latest firmware.



    4. Clear your temporary internet files.



    5. Power cycle your modem, unplug it for atleast 15 seconds.



    6. Download and update then do a scan with SpyBot http://beam.to/spybotsd & Ad Aware http://www.lavasoftusa.com/support/download to remove any spyware then install and update SpywareBlaster to stay spyware FREE. YOU MUST USE BOTH AD AWARE & SPYBOT TO ENSURE YOU ARE SPYWARE FREE SINCE ONE FINDS WHAT THE OTHER MISSES.



    7. Make sure you do the faster web page tweak in Read1st link.



    8. If you have Zone Alarm as a firewall uninstall it then visit Zonelabs.com for further instructions on removing it's left over junk.



    9. Install Outpost Firewall http://www.agnitum.com\ or Sygate Firewall http://www.sygate.com/ , both have FREE and Pro versions and are heads above ZA.



    10. Scan for viruses with your antivirus app, if you do not have one get one IMMEDIATELY, AVG 6.0 http://www.grisoft.com/us/us_dwnl_free.php is an excellent FREE AV app.



    11. Make sure you have ALL of the latest Windows Updates

    I turned the modem off for 5 minutes. I put in those settings for cable nut.

    1.9 megabits per second
    Communications 1.9 megabits per second
    Storage 237.1 kilobytes per second
    1MB file download 4.3 seconds
    Subjective rating Great

    What is going on? I have a 6mb line, if I wanted a 2mb connection I would have bought that. Thanks for your time mccoffee is there any hope for me? Thanks Harley

    I guess the speedguide test is inaccurate. But the one from dslreports seems to work just fine. I don't think I can do much better then this do you guys? Thanks a bunch. Harley
