All these setting can be pc specific changing these setting can stop you connecting so take care ensure you can get back to your original setting first

The MTU can be miles out if you are on a modem

I suspect that the settings that give the best ping may not give the best throughput and vice-versa.

That is precisely what I did and my ping shot down to 20... now it is back to 100 again!

I believe it is something to do with the time of day too!
Try your ping tonight, it'll probably be between 80-100 Sad

Basic question... What does 'Ping' mean? I've often wondered. I'm assuming it's something do do with sites refusing to load. I'm experiencing this a lot lately.
I'm using 'connect light' though. (56k dial up.)

Ping is a command, open up a command window, and try "ping portal.plus.net". It sends ip packets to a host and these are echoed back. So its a way of measuring how long it takes for a packet to get there and back. Low pings are good, especially for gamers. High pings are bad, ditto.

Er seeing as I don't know what a command window is I'll get back to you on this one. I'm not normally this dumb.
Thanks anyway.

Command prompt maybe? Try looking under Start Menu\Programs.

Click on the DOS option in your start menu and it will open a DOS Box which is is also known as a command window by virtue of the fact that it has a DOS Command prompt there waiting for you to type something.

RE: IF YOU GOT BAD PING READ THIS!!!

Seen as there was a question from someone using 56k dial-up, I thought I would just add this.

The settings for MTU & RWIN mentioned would not help 56k people as they are too big.

For dial-up, I would recommend 576 for the MTU and 2144 for the RWIN. These are the settings I used to use (with success) when I was on 56k.
