View Full Version : These "POPULAR" Options Never Work..
06-05-2003, 04:11 PM
I hv tried these tweaks to increase the speed of cable modem . My success rates are nearly Zero...
1. Registry Tweaks of speedguide.net
2. checking for spywares using "Spybot Search And Destroy" or "Adaware 6.0"
(In Some cases they even delet some files and makes the matter worse "Page Cannot be displayed"
3. Doing An MSCONFIG ..
I would like to know from experts something which can work.. I think we are dependent 2 much on these spywares
Waiting for a response

If you delete spyware, it can make some things not work properly because some programs won't work unless they can spy on you... If you don't mind being spied on, leave them there....
That said, it is not clear what your problem is. I can see that you want to increase your broadband speed, but you don't say what speed you are getting and why this is a problem. It is quite possible that you are at max speed already. Also, when you say you did an msconfig, what does that mean??? Do you mean you turned off certain startup programs or ?????

I Hv tried it mutiple times......
I hv tried it on more than 50 computers of various ISP connections .
I want some real tweaks (may be ur experiences) for increasing performance of system..
DO let me know If u know other tweaks

First of all you need to realise that you can have all the tweaks in the world, but if your cable connection is being slowed down by other traffic or the provider, you're beating your head against a brick wall.
The first thing I'd do is check with your cable provider/ISP to determine what speed you are actually paying for. Then run a few online speed tests to determine what speed you are actually getting. If your actual speed is much slower than the speed you are paying for, inform the provider, and get them to sort it.
If you have a speed near to the value you expect, then that's often the best you can hope for. Some tweaks state that you can go beyond your rated speed, but I haven't found this to be the case (although I have limited experience with this)
I guess that some ISPs have woken up to the tweaks, and actively do something to stop them.
You should bear in mind that the type of connection you have will make a difference. Some cables can connect via the USB port, but as this port is shared with other peripherals normally, it can slow things down a lot.
Make sure you use an ethernet card, set it to full duplex to start with. If this isn't giving you your stated speed, drop it to half-duplex. This often solves problems with cable connections - the NIC is just trying to jump the gun as it is much faster than the cable.

How fast is fast?
How much do you want?
What are your D/L and U/L speeds using one of the many speed tests??
Go back to dialup and see how fast cable really is!
