Thread: Optimizing My Internet Connection?

  1. #1
    Hey guys,
    I've seen my internet download speed stay at a stead 130 k/bp/s download rate, and then some days it will be 80.8 kbps...what can I do to optimize my internet connection and get the most out of it...(it's not the sites I'm downloading from either..I have a private test file/server)

    There is a program called Webroot Accelerate 2K3, I just got the trial version today and im still testing it. I nomally get speeds of 130 kb/s like you, but this thing got it up to 300 kb/s for a few seconds.

    **I recommend making a restore point before you install this, It canges some system settings, and if you dont like it, restore it.**

    Try download accelerator. you can find it at download.com or just search for it. It downloads from several locations, giving you faster speeds.

    Wonder if there's a serial key I could get for this program?

    TCP/IP Optimizer it sets the MTU values etc in WIndows correctly for using broadband internet connections. You don't even have to install it. Just download, click the exe, choose the modemtype you're using and finish.

    Thanks nostalgia, I test this out, and my speed was at 400 kb/sec!, but it went down to like 200 kb/sec. Its still better then my normal speed.'


    EDIT: I have also noticed a big difference in bittorrent. Thanks!

    I just downloaded a file from download.com.

    And you dont install it, just run the exe, then pick which modem you have, then at the bottom select optimal settings, then apply setting.

    before you do this, go to file, then select backup current settings.
