    I used it (still doing actually) I have Windows Me and TCP/IP optimizer works great. I'm using a ADSL-lite connection (256) and before using TCP/IP my downloadspeed was approx. 25 and now it starts at 168 Kb and slowly descends to 30 Kb (normal speed because if you have an ADSL-lite version your ISP will make sure that the speed isn't faster than 256 (about 32 KB).
    So give it a try, even friends of mine who are on cable benefitted from it.

    the effect of these kind of optimizers vary depending on how crap your connection is

    but if you are a tweaking freak who demands the most out of your connection go for it

    www.speedguide.net has TCP/IP Optimizer
    Better to download it than risk a virus from someone's infected shared directory...
    Plus this way you can get it from the source!

    I use extreme settings on mine, although anyone else probably should use the setting appropriate for their connection type.

    Tweaking the MTU values beyond what's already set can help further too -- but it's a difficult process left for experts.

    On Win 95/98/98SE/ME, you'll need to reduce the number of connections per server type in TCP/IP Optimizer to only about 2-10. Otherwise, opening 5 or more web pages at once may crash your operating system! This is magnified by running Kazaa Lite++ at the same time, because it also has to open connections.

    Tried it on 576k dsl PPPoA in the UK, windows XP and found it actually slowed me down but I have got a rather nice ISP with low contention and a cheap price.

    By the way - if you have conexant access runner and dsl lite try changing the modulation in line set-up to ANSI T1.413i2. It might be cheating but it works for me.

    Did you change the MTU values from their original amounts?

    If set too high, EVERY large packet your connection sends becomes lost.

    If set too low, far more ip packet overhead is needed for every kilobyte of data sent out.

    Yup, tested the MTU and it worked fine, no fragmenting at all

    I don't know then why it would slow your connection down -- although the change might be so small as to be inconsequential. Win XP is pretty well optimized for broadband internet connections.

    It's the older Windows OSes that really need this: Win 95, 98, and ME.

    I have Win 98SE, and it roughly doubled my cablemodem's download speed from ~80 KB/sec max to ~160 KB/sec sustained. (1.5 Mbps cablemodem)

    Well i changed the mtu settings and allso 2 extreme, it didnt seem 2 change my download speed at all, dl still doesnt exceed 50kbps 4 some reason, and am runnin a cable connecton (the 1mg) so it looks like its back 2 the drawing board 4 me. i did hear of people clicking the + next 2 the file u r dling and when it opens up the other peolpe u r downloading off u right click the file that has 0.00kbps then search more users and it should boot your dls .....but didnt do anything 4 me. must have a cursed laptop
