    Connection Speed

    Just curious how fast everyones connection speed is. You can tweak dial up just a tad. I'm on cable and have tweaked my settings quite a bit from the original settings. It's pretty dam quick and like it! Whenever it's slow, especially here I know it's not me.
    If anyone cares to here is a link to test speed. Speed varies from different sites but if everyone uses the same it doesn't matter. Check it out at one near you. http://www.speakeasy.net/main.php?page=sup_pops

    Here is a link on my test, it's near the same most of the time. It hasn't been below 3000 kbps lately. http://www.dslreports.com/speedtests...net/1039938469

    Eat your heart out dial up peoples! LOL [img]/ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Until someone puts some decent streaming video of pool matches on the web my 56k will do just fine:

    For $5.95 a month I'm not complaining.

    Re: Connection Speed

    My download speed was 830 kbps and my upload was 365 kbps.

    By then again, we're paying Comcast a bunch, so it better be good.

    Re: What is interesting

    Is what everybody pays for their connection. I use to be on AOL hell, dial up too. When their rates went up to $23 per month I said bye bye. Cox charges $30 per month for a very good service. In different parts of the country though I'm sure this figure is considerably higher. With this connection you don't do much more than blink and your connected. With a little tweaking I've increased my speed near 1000 kbps, part of it due to better service. Anyway just some info for everyone. Here is a link with part of my settings and my IP Addy X, out. The guys and gals at these forums sure helped me out and still do sometimes. They prob can't play pool though! [img]/ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    SpeedGuide.net TCP/IP Analyzer
    TCP properties for IP = xx.x.xxx.xxx (ipxx-x-xxx-xxx.ph.ph.cox.net)
    Browser/OS = Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows 98; Win 9x 4.90; T312461; Cox High Speed Internet Customer)
    Note: Read the FAQ if the above is not your IP address.

    TCP options string = 020405b40103030201010402

    MTU = 1500
    MTU is fully optimized for broadband.

    MSS = 1460
    Maximum useful data in each packet = 1460, which equals MSS.

    Default Receive Window (RWIN) = 256960
    RWIN Scaling (RFC1323) = 2 bits
    Unscaled Receive Window = 64240
    RWIN is a multiple of MSS
    Other values for RWIN that might work well with your current MTU/MSS:
    513920 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 8)
    128480 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 2)
    64240 (MSS x 44)

    bandwidth * delay product:
    Your RcvWindow limits you to: 10278.4 kbps (1284.8 KBytes/s) @ 200ms
    Your RcvWindow limits you to: 4111.36 kbps (513.92 KBytes/s) @ 500ms

    MTU Discovery (RFC1191) = ON

    Time to live left = 46 hops
    TTL value is ok.

    Timestamps (RFC1323) = OFF

    Selective Acknowledgements (RFC2018) = ON

    IP type of service field (RFC1349)= 00000000

    Re: Connection Speed

    Get the violins out. I live outside a DSL zone, and too far away from a telephone company's central office to get anything decent. 100yards away, my neighbor sometimes gets something in the 40K range. I wish I was so lucky.

    I can't even do Satellite, as my trees block the southern sky (necessary). Cable internet is years away for us.

    This is a sad state as I'm sure I've owned a personal computer long before 99% of the world, and yet I'm so far behind everyone.
