Hey guys have a question..? I have a cable connection.. I used Queegs suggested site to track your speed.. Compared to his mine sucked..!!!

2003-06-26 08:54:21 EST: 472 / 123 Your download speed : 472121 bps, or 472 kbps. A 57.6 KB/sec transfer rate. Your upload speed : 123361 bps, or 123 kbps.

Is this actaully bad or his exceptionaly good...? and if my connections sucks what can I do about it...? Anyone know how to tweak system..?

What connection do you have? Is it a 1 meg connection or 512? You can tweek your network card to improve performance but as far as actually getting more speed from your modem I wouldn't recommend messing about with it. It's called uncapping and your ISP don't take too kindly to people uncapping their modems. I have the tools to tweek network cards if you want them, but they are for windows XP.

For 512 it actually isn't too bad, i've seen a lot worse. i'll send you the tools to tweek your network card you will notice a difference. I did and I always get my top speed and more sometimes. I'm on a 1 meg connection and most of the time I get 1089Kbps.

Well i'd say your system is running fine, there's more than enough free memory to play about with so your slow connections speeds are not your systems fault. If you tweek the network card it will improve the way your system handles your network card hence that little bit more speed. One thing though I did notice, you are running your graphics resolution a bit low. At 60Hz i'm suprised you don't get headaches and bad eyes. I have a 19" monitor and I always run it 1024x768 75hz, saves on the flicker and headaches.

Most people see a flicker if it is under 72. Anything slower and the typical human eye can detect it unless there are residual images. You must either have really bright lighting or your monitor holds the image longer than most.

Just for kicks, set it back to 60 and then chew some gum or something cruchy while looking at the screen. You should see waves rolling down your screen. Especially when chewing Fruit Gushers! HA HA! (dumb joke based on dumb U.S. TV ad)

If I'm working under flourecent (sp?) lights, I bump it up to 85 or I'll get dizzy spells as the lights flicker at a one rate and the screen at another...bad mojo. Doesn't bother most people though...

I have placed it back to 60 Hertz... it actaully is a sharper image.. The Brightness is only about 3\4 turned up.. It is a nice monitor,, a Sony Flat 17".. SONY HMD A/200 About the spec's I have no idea.. It never flicks or anything like that.... And I have 20-15 vision... lol.. like that has anything to do with it... :-p

Peace...
