Optimizing & Measuring the "Speed" of Internet Connection.

Measure your Internet Bandwidth .......

Network Bandwidth (Speed) can be stated in Bytes or bits.
1Byte = 8 bits. 1MB/sec. is 8 Mb/sec.
Usually bits are symbolized using b (lower case).
Bytes are symbolized using B (upper case).

So what do to?

First Optimize your TCP/IP Stack.

Network and Internet is depending on packet of information and variety of buffers that handle the information through the Network.

Optimal size of Packets and adequate Buffers would yield the fastest connection possible through your specific Internet Service.

The settings are part of the TCP/IP stack which is the protocol used by the Internet and your Local Network (LAN).

Optimized TCP/IP Stack will improve your LAN traffic as well.

How to Optimize?


Run the program, it will show the current settings of TCP/IP parameters. Write them down.

You can change any variable that you want, click Apply, and reboot the computer. If no good; you can always change to your original values.

Start with:

MTU - Cable = 1500. DSL = 1492. ISDN=1322. DialUp = 576.

Tcp Receive - For Broadband = 256960. For DialUp = 65392.

Window Scaling - Yes

Time Stamping - No

Selective Acks - Yes

Path MTU Discovery - Yes.

Black Hole - NO

Max Duplicate - 2

TTL - 64

You are Optimized!!!! smile.gif
