    Unhappy Please help me to tweak my connection.

    Hi, I am quite new to broadband connection and tweaking and stuff like that..
    Hope you are able to help me... I tried looking through the forums but I get more confused after looking through it..

    Here are some information about my connection:

    1) Connection type: DSL. Not sure whether it is PPPoE or not.. What is the difference..? All I know is there are 2 computers connected to the router. the one that i am using is connected using NIC and another one is using wireless.

    2) ISP & advertised speed: streamyx (Malaysia) and the advertised speed is 512/256 kilobits/s

    3) Current settings: Tried to do a "TCP/IP Analyzer Test" but all my browser show is "The page cannot be displayed" message.

    4) Operating system: XP SP2..

    If my understanding is correct, I should be getting 90% of 512kbit/s which is around 460 kbit/s but when i did a speed test, i only got 360kbit/s to 400kbit/s and that is only after i download the TCP Optimizer. before that, i get slower connection. I only get about 25kByte/s when I use BitLord.

    Thank you in advance all the tweaking gurus for your time and patience.
