Slow - Adjust Settings?

I've just done a speed test as my connection is really slow. I've copied the message below. Now I know I'm in the middle of getting maxed so expected it but on the message it mentions I may be able to increase the speed of my connection by adjusting my settings - what settings (and where) should I be adjusting? Or do I just bear with it as I'm being maxed??

Thanks for any help recieved.

Slow - Adjust Settings?

Hi Gavin

This would be your MTU and RWIN settings and without going into too much detail here Kitz does a great tutorial on tweaking these settings and much more Here

You may also benefit from rebooting your router / modem once or twice for a couple of days then leaving it for the BT Bras to pick up as that is a very slow speed
