Hi all I have ADSL 256k and I was wondering if theres any way my d/l could be faster (without using DAP) I usually have about 50k d/l speed and it's ok but it can tedious on really big files. Now my friend can run at 70kps with 256k so i'm just wondering whats goin on.

I have tiscali (in the uk) and a sagem f@st modem. If you can help me i'll appreciate it Thanx! :smokin: :smokin: :smokin:

Hi Supa Sniper,

Well you can fiddle with packet sizes and things like that. A lot of the differences depend on the server you're connected to as well as your machines settings.

HERE is a MS Knowledge Base Article that may help explain what to do to fiddle.

However 50Kb per second on 256k connection is quite respectable, 70 is more than I would expect from that connection, of course I assume here that you are talking about a 256/64 connection here. That's more than I get and I have a 512/128 connection.

have fun

Considering that a 256k line should be moving at half of what you are getting you are probably alright. Your speed is probably tapped out for reasonsthat you cant help. Like distane to the CO. You can go to dslreports.com and see what other people are getting in your area. Who knows maybe it really is you.
