need help setting up cable nuts
« on: September 24, 2002, 11:53:09 pm »
hello how is everyone.i just downloaded cable nuts program.just asking what do i puit in the settings and if someone can help me get the most out of my cable connection.i did a analyzer test here are the results.

TCP options string = 020405b40103030201010402

MTU = 1500
MTU is fully optimized for broadband.

MSS = 1460
Maximum useful data in each packet = 1460, which equals MSS.

Default Receive Window (RWIN) = 256960
RWIN Scaling (RFC1323) = 2 bits
Unscaled Receive Window = 64240
RWIN is a multiple of MSS
Other values for RWIN that might work well with your current MTU/MSS:
513920 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 8)
128480 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 2)
64240 (MSS x 44)

bandwidth * delay product:
Your RcvWindow limits you to: 10278.4 kbps (1284.8 KBytes/s) @ 200ms
Your RcvWindow limits you to: 4111.36 kbps (513.92 KBytes/s) @ 500ms

MTU Discovery (RFC1191) = ON

Time to live left = 53 hops
TTL value is ok.

Timestamps (RFC1323) = OFF

Selective Acknowledgements (RFC2018) = ON

IP type of service field (RFC1349)= 00000000

i live in n.y.c. and my cable company is time warner (road runner).

i am using win xp home edition.
amd athlon xp 2000 cpu
epox 8k3a+ mobo
gf4 ti 4400
512 pc 2100 ddr ram
and a linksys nic card.
i am new to this stuff and i know my connecdtion can get better can you help me.
i think i download on the speed tests around 1.5mb-2mb and upload aroun 370kbps.

thanks for your time. ;D ;D
