Doctor TCP & Win XP

  Zak 12:47 26 Oct 2005

I have used Doctor TCP for tweaking MTU & RWIN settings on my old Win98se system with no problems.

However with my new WinXP set up, when I run Doctor TCP it fails to recognise the SpeedTouch 330 ADSL modem.

It recognises the Ethernet card and graphic cards.

Any ideas please - should I be even bothering to tweak the MTU & RWIN values.

I am on the 2Mb Wanadoo Broadband connection and speeds are low 1600 - 1800Kbps.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I have 2Mb Tiscali,my speeds vary between less than 512Kbs(extremely busy net)and 2.2Mbs(very early hours)

I have tried tweaking connection settings,and only differences are dictated by the net usage,and connectivity for online games.

Previous attempts to alter speeds on a lousy Pipex connection,rarely did anything positive,often making it slower so I returned the settings to "defaults"As Pipex repeatedly failed to address the issue,I changed ISP.

I use PC Pitstops "Optimizer" to tweak my present connection(dependant on my requirements)

Your connection isn't bad,all kinds of things can affect it,including how many others are accessing the speedtest site at the same time.If you still feel cheated,then try contacting Wanadoo for advice/suggestions.
