I used to use DrTCP to tweak my ADSL settings,(without much improvement,if any)I eventually d/l'ed an "autofix" from PC Pitstop's site,that offered a choice of 2-3 different settings,depending on whether I was online gaming or d/l'ing,as 1 setting gave execellent connectivity(in games)but poor d/l'ing and the other was the reverse.

i used Dr TCP to tweak the voyager modem and that increased my download & upload speeds to 465 & 247 without overheads at present im only getting 447 & 243 without overheads, the router modem is showing as a lan or high speed unlike the voyager which is showing as dial up & i cant seem to be able to point Dr TCP to the router

I d/l'ed this to my HD,and found it usefull.

I also found that it paid to tweak the router settings(as I'm presently back on dialup I have forgotten the actual numbers)I think it was 28 that I was altering the MTU by,eg 1492 - 28 = 1464.

As its over 6 mths since I had ADSL,I have forgotten exactly what tweaks were applied where.

that pc pitsop link made the connection worse, at least i found one thing out is that Dr TCP is actually working for the modem/router so i used that to put the settings back again,i will try that last setting you posted and it looks like i will just have to play with it untill i can find the best configaration

i was writiing my last post as you posted yours, i must have hit the one that trashed the d/l speed, i will keep watching this thread and will be interested as to how you get on when you get your adsl back, once again many thanks

Did you try "Typical Latency" and "Low Latency" I found one improved online game connectivity but really trashed the d/l speed.I also seem to remember that my other setting worked best at something like 1388,but only in conjuction with another tweak.Sorry I'm not able to recall each tweak exactly,but if you can hangon a couple of weeks,I'm hoping to get back on ADSL and will no doubt have to tweak the settings again. :-)

thanks for all your help,i will just wait for the free bt upgrade, will close this tread now,

i typed my closing thread as you sent yours,i guess i must have picked the one that trashed the d/l speed, looks like i will have to wait for my letter from bt to say when they will give the free speed increase, i will watch this thread & see how you get on when you get your adsl back again, thanks once again for your help, sorry about the delay in this reply but the first one i tried to post just got lost, in cyberspace
