Did you know that you can optimise your Broadband ADSL conne

Just got email from PlusNet:

"Recent tests have shown that ADSL connection speeds can be improved by
using the 'ADSL Network Optimiser'. It's free, easy to use and only takes a
few seconds."

Has anyone done this yetHuh what are the resultsHuh

I just got that too, and was going to ask what sort of a benefit it would give.

I use Linux mostly though, and there is no version available for Linux - if I run the software in Windows will the changed settings also work in Linux?

If not, I think I'll leave it, my connection is running at about the speed I would expect, so I guess if it isn't broken, don't fix it.

No they won't. Changes made in Windows have no effect in Linux as it's TCP/IP settings (and all other OS related stuff) is seperate.

I have used the software previously and it has made marginal improvements.
Give it a try (in Windows) and see if it helps you.

Hi Jon,

I use a router, I'm afraid, so I don't have the config for the USB modem.

This comes up every now and again, and does make a difference. Most standard settings are:
MTU:1458
RWIN:12868

Amazing! It really makes a huge difference for me.

I had a downstream of 473.60 before and 474.00 after.
This is using plusnet's speed test which only tests the speed to the plusnet servers which explains why you get a decent download speed from some sites and a dialup rate from others. The speed can only be as fast as the weekest link so in reality most users wont gain an great deal from the change.

I use the www.adslguide.org.uk as an alternative speed test. Try it, it may help to push the plusnet service higher up the league.
