I am terribly confused - windows XP pro issue or my understand

Post by ZnVudG9vc2 » Sun, 05 Dec 2004 06:59:03



I have Cable based connection
ISP is HTV in finland

I also tried to experiment using my linux OS which is in second partition
and there as well, I can hardly reach 60 kbps as combined speed when I
download from different sources.

Is there any settings pertaining to tcp-ip that i need to do in windows
registery to speed up ?

My computer doesnt have any spyware. Its complete clean so far.
I checked running processes and all of them either windows specific or my
anti virus related.

Pl. help.

If you're getting the same speed from both Windows and Linux, it's a
hardware problem, an ISP problem, or the site you're downloading from isn't
capable of sending the data any faster. None of those are going to be fixed
by fiddling with Windows files.

Thanks. I believe, my ISP seems to be faking me.

Download NetStatLive free from www.analogx.com It will show
you a real time read-out of the up and download speeds
you're getting.
