Snail speeds on broadband?


Are these for real?

What is going on with Plusnet

Direction Actual Speed True Speed
Downstream 90 Kbps (11.3 KB/sec) 103 Kbps (inc. overheads)
Upstream 263 Kbps (32.9 KB/sec) 302 Kbps (inc. overheads

Surely even in the busiest times you shouldn't get poor speeds like this

No you shouldn't. Looks like you have not done the MTU & RWIN tweak.

Go here and test your settings www.dslreports.com/tweaks

Bt recommends an MTU of 1458 (default for windows is 1500) and you need to calculate the RWIN but a setting of 14180 is usually okay. Easiest way of changing these values is by downloading DrTcp from same site.

Let us know how you get on.

Downstream 470 Kbps (58.8 KB/sec) 540 Kbps (inc. overheads)
Upstream 242 Kbps (30.3 KB/sec) 278 Kbps (inc. overheads

I downoaded this utility before and adjusted the settings as mentioned but still ended up with the 1st set of results.

Either ways I set to the ones you suggested and voila!!!!!!

Much appreciated for your assistance.

I found that RWIN = 13000 improved things slightly.

This site is worth a look, not just for ADSL settings but lots of other stuff, including gaming settings...
