Use of TCP Optimiser

  Halmer 22:47 07 Jan 2006

Seems to suggest quite a few changes to my internet connection settings but obviously I'm in the 'if it aint broke don't fix it' mode with my new PC at the moment.

Has anyone used this to any great effect?

New PC? XP? Then set a restore point and give it a go!

.....and I'll probably end up messing with my new PC until 3 o'clock in the morning when I've lost my internet con!

Are you trying to use it with a dial-up or broadband connection?
If broadband, I have fiddled for hours with various "suggested" settings, without the slightest perceivable change in download performance. But, if you have nothing else to do this evening then take Diodorus Siculus' caution and enjoy fiddling !

See my postings about DrTCP in this thread:

After Tiscali's "Service Enhancements" at the back end of October I eventually had to drop from 2MB to 1MB.

Speeds were still dreadful but using DrTCP has got the 1MB to a regular 1.25MB...:-)

Note the original settings before using DrTCP - your can always revert back to them if necsssary.

I'll give it a go and no doubt have to come back here if it all goes wrong. If I back up first tho' via TCP I should be fine.

and the little slide adjuster seems to indicate that it's faster!!!

Seems no different to me!

greem tick it.

You'll probably notice the difference more when downloading files or software.

but nothing happened.

Maybe the Optimiser has knackered my green tickability thingy.
