    I hear somewhere that you can tweak your dsl/cable/dial up with dr.tcp http://www.dslreports.com/faq/578

    you modify the settings for what kind of connection you are usning and there you go.:bounce:

    btw drtcp is recommended by cisco

    It works! I noticed that my download rate is twice as fast now on my dial up adapter, 3.5k sec to 7.0k sec

    I don't trust these crappy programs. Your download speeds are determed on where you are downloading from.

    I think these links have as good a methods as any site or program for optimizing your connection;

    The reason a diamond shines so brightly is because it has many facets which reflect light.

    You can optimize the size of your TCP packets and improve your net performance with DSL and cable, it really does work... It's been so long since I read how to do this, it's a registry mod of some kind. Check this site for help: http://www.dsl-speed.org/

    Enjoy....

    thats just the dl speed for dling programs,but when the web pages start loading its like 17k a sec which really isint that bad, but still bearable. I know its nothing comared to cable/dsl, but anything that puts on a 3x speed boost is well worth it :thumb:

    Turn off any and all error checking and correcting. For example, on a 56k modem, you will download files at 10kbps avg (peak to 18) ... Downloaded darwin 1.3.1 over a year ago on a 56k modem at 10kbps avg w/o using any kinda third party tweaking (and if it was corrupt, oh well, I just didn't wanna spend 2 days downloading the iso heh). Have done the same over my wireless internet connection, and gone from downloading another iso image at 46KB/sec to 122KB/sec :) Granted the image I just downloaded over the wireless connection was corrupt, but still :)

    I just like disabling certain features of the TCP stack when gaming (who cares 'bout correction there, a lotta the traffic is sent over UDP, which has no correction... so why when the game uses the slower TCP transport protocol cut your speed in half?)

    Dslreports.com is the only way to go. In case you are wondering, this is not a program. It tells you to manually change the settings in your registry. run the tweaktester and do what they tell you.
