I did a check on my system and it reported I was getting 40% packet loss? As you do, I started messing with settings, I actually did a test recommended by PC Advisor to ping them and put a MTU figure. Keep dropping it until it is not broken up, then add 28 and use that as MTU. My results were 1408 +28 =1436 as my MTU. I have 1mb speed broadband, and this figure seems low. Does anyone have any opinions on this? Many thanks, grifval.
I have occasionally had a go at tweaking my ADSL.Its impossible to gauge whether you've improved it as the various "speedtests" online can be extremely erratic(depending on time of day,number of users testing,etc)Best to return to "Default" settings and leave well alone.
Its also dependant on use to which the connection is being put,I can have either slightly faster downloads,but poor connectivity for gaming or good connectivity(lower pings)but crap downloading speeds(I have 2Mb Tiscali)
My MTU is set to 1500,my d/l's are frequently above 225kbs(and if its peak times.below 512kbs:-( )I can get my d/l to higher but at the expense of gaming performance.My uploads are usually 30+kbs,and vary slightly depending on d/l speeds(as I said,tweaking "can" improve one to the detriment of the other)
