    Anyway I can speed this thing up

    Hi, Everyone

    Man ok I have Win 98 on a p2 400MHZ computer with 96MB of ram, a while back I had Sympatico on this computer, and was downloading at a great 30 to 40 K per sec, I then recently got sympatico for a second time, and I have my p2 400 networked, with 3 other computers using a router, but now I only get a sick maybe if I am lucky 15K per sec when downloading, and about 8K a sec for uploading. even when the other cpus, are sitting there doing nothing.

    Is their anything I can do to speed this thing up, it is quite anoying to pay extra for high speed, and it is not even much faster.

    I am a webmaster which deals in files, and sometimes big files, and would like to save some time.

    Thanks to anyone who can help
    Let me know if need any other details.
    Ciao,
    Shawn

    Hi,

    Sorry

    I use DSL with a router, and 4 networked computers

    I my ISP is Bell Sympatico Canada

    There advertised speed is beetween 40 to 100K per sec, and can be faster.


    TCP properties for IP = XXXXXXXXXX (mtl-hse-ppp200153.qc.sympatico.ca)
    Browser/OS = Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows 98; SYMPA)
    Note: Read the FAQ if the above is not your IP address.

    TCP options string = 020405ac01010402

    MTU = 1492
    MTU is optimized for PPoE DSL broadband. If not, consider raising MTU to 1500 for optimal throughput.

    MSS = 1452
    Maximum useful data in each packet = 1452, which equals MSS.
    MSS is optimized for PPPoE DSL broadband. If not, consider raising MTU to 1500 for maximum throughput.

    Default Receive Window (RWIN) = 8712
    RWIN Scaling (RFC1323) = 0 bits
    Unscaled Receive Window = 8712
    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: 348.48 kbps (43.56 KBytes/s) @ 200ms
    Your RcvWindow limits you to: 139.392 kbps (17.424 KBytes/s) @ 500ms
    Consider increasing your RWIN value to optimize TCP/IP for broadband.

    MTU Discovery (RFC1191) = ON

    Time to live left = 116 hops
    TTL value is ok.

    Timestamps (RFC1323) = OFF

    Selective Acknowledgements (RFC2018) = ON

    IP type of service field (RFC1349)= 00000000

    My SPEED IS


    2002-11-30 21:45:01 EST: 135 / 81
    Your download speed : 135355 bps, or 135 kbps.

    OK Shawn looks like you are using Windows 98, first install the vtcp 386 patch then use the following settings in CableNut:

    BcastNameQueryCount - 1
    BcastQueryTimeout - 100
    BSDUrgent - 1
    CacheTimeout - 600000
    DefaultRecvWindow - 31944
    DefaultTTL - 64
    EnableDNS - 0
    GlobalMaxTcpWindoSize - 31944
    KeepAliveInterval - 500
    KeepAliveTime - 14400000
    Lanabase - 0
    LocalCopyMade - 1
    MaxConnections - 64
    MaxConnectRetries - 5
    MaxDataRetries - 64
    NameTableSize - 255
    NameSrvQueryTimeout - 100
    PMTUBlackHoleDetect - 0
    PMTUDiscovery - 1
    RoutingBufSize - 146432
    RoutingPackets - 100
    SackOpts - 1
    SessionKeepAlive - 7200
    SessionTableSize - 255
    Size/Small/Medium/Large - 3
    Tcp1323Opts - 0
    TcpTimedWaitDelay - 30
    MaxDupAcks - 2
    DefaultTOS - 92
    IGMPLevel - 2
    MaxConnectionsPer1_0Server - 20
    MaxConnectionsPerServer - 10

    Also do the following:

    1. Open IE and select tools - internet options - connections - LAN settings, make sure NOTHING there is checked.

    2. 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).

    3. Clear your temporary internet files.

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

    5. Download and update then do a scan with SpyBot, anything checked in red is spyware and safe to remove.

    Hi,

    Ok did everything

    Now your test for tcip/ip is working much better, with a rate of 63.5K per sec, and says my RWIN value is good.

    BUT the speed test at that other site you suggest still says 16.5K per sec, and that's about all I get, I downloaded the spyway program, and was running at 17.0K per sec.

    So it's hasn't gotten any faster, is there anything else I can do to speed it up, or is that all.

    Also how long does this spyway program take to get rid of stuff, because it seems to take quite long, I would delete the stuff manually, but I get Access Denied for some files, of course I still have an old program call X-Treegold, for DOS, and can delete files from there, just wondering that's all.

    Thanks,
    Ciao,
    Shawn

    Why don't you try the speedguide patch from here http://www.speedguide.net/files/sgui...k_98_pppoe.zip

    To get rid of spyware use ad aware from
    http://www.lavasoftusa.com/

    I thought Canadian cable is like not regulated as much as American so it's should be faster why don't you try that?

    Hi,

    Ya, no difference

    16.5K

    boy, wonder why

    oh about cable it is a faster, but if you knew UN-NAMED which is company that supplies cable in Montreal, you would understand why not to buy service from them, it's bad enough to deal with regular cable from them.

    The weird thing is I had this sympatico high speed DSL thing about a 1 year or 2 ago, and it was running at 40 to 60 per second, on the same computer, now it only gets 16.5 makes no sense. On top of that there DSL is better now than before. ya right!!!!!!!!!

    Oh my NIC is a 10/100

    so no problems there, I set to full 100, because I am on a router.
    BTW without the router it runs the same 16.5/sec

    If anyone else has any suggestions they would be greatly appericiated.

    Thanks,
    Ciao,

    Hi,

    With your settings dud89

    I get

    Cost = 0 (normal cost)
    You may notice receive window is 511.104 Kilo bytes/sec

    but download is still at 16.5K per sec
    Weird, btw I got rid of all spy-ware also.

    Please is there anyone else can help

    255552 is a ridiculous size RWIN for your connection, lower it to the value I gave you. There is something else going on with your connection, the problem isn't your settings. Use SpyBot and Ad Aware to see what spyware you have lurking on your pc and let it remove what is found.

    Hi,

    Ok I fixed the RWIN Value, but one problem

    I have one spyware thing left on my computer, it is called

    Common hijacker - Redirect Host
    Auto.search.msn.com=216.65.3.76
    This I can't get rid of, I get Access Denied

    Any suggestions on how to get rid of this.

    Thanks,
    Ciao,
    Shawn

    Which app found this? Usually if you can't remove it it's because it's in use.

    Hi,

    SpyBot found it, and would not delete it

    Ad aware, found, and got rid of everything it displayed.
    but I then re-scanned with spybot, and that was still there, and could not delete it.

    Edit : -> Now I am thinking that maybe it has something to do with the internet connection, so I will try scan, and remove while being off line, because my systems is setup to be always online.
