Title: Cablenut What would you want
Post by: dannjr on May 08, 2003, 01:42:26 pm
If the cablenut program was to be updated what would you like to see in the program.
If you have a registry entry or a setting thats legit please place it here.
Im not saying its gonna happen tomarrow but like all programs eventually they get updated.
I wont kid anyone by giving dates or times as well.

BUT if you think theres something in need please place it here in this thread.
It has to be realted to the way the connection properties of a Windows machine.
We have talked about MAC / Linux if you have something specific to them flavors start a thread in the Linux/MAC forum

Thanks
Dan

Can you integrate the Faster page loading and Disable DNS Caching tweaks somehow into Cablenut, maybe have it save the tweaks when you save the settings or have the reg files pre-built into the adjuster?  This way all the tweaks are covered in one download.

A new computer user cannot use CableNut without a lot of guidance. Experienced users probably won't mind a bit of helpful information either.

I think that a seperate window should open when the program is run. This window should be on top and slightly to one side and contain a text dialog that gives a clear concise explanation of the existence of and the purpose of the CSS files and exactly how they can be used (including the option to right click and not use the Manual Tweak Screen).

Included should be a clear explanation of what choices to make to determine which CSS to use. This could be assisted by a clickable menu choice or check box style choice, present on this same window which would be in addition to the current windows folder/file name search one can perform from the Manual Tweak Screen File Menu/Open Custom Settings.

Until someone understand these basic things they cannot use CableNut except by blind choices.

The window would be a simple movable window that opens on top of the program which can be disabled or moved out of focus. I would even put an explanation of how to move, unfocus, and close this window as part of its text.

Have a nice day.

I have another thought.

It would be easier to compare current, suggested, and user typed tweaks if the Manual Tweak Screen had these three side by side adjacent to each tweak.

Have a nice day

Yeah I think the suggested tweaks is a good idea.
Title: 2 proposals
Post by: Thomas76 on May 31, 2003, 10:50:04 am
Hi.
This isn't about the "actual" functionality of the Cablenut program, so it's not so important.

1) Would it be possible to have "Start Menu icons" and "Desktop icons" separated in the installer menu?

2) Inside the program, you can move to the next box by pressing the Tab key.  This works up through "DefaultTLL" but clicking Tab then will highlight the "Retrieve Current Registry Values" button; it would maybe be better if that placed the cursor in the "DisableUserTOSSetting" box instead...

What's the DNS caching tweak? Faster page loading is already setup in Cablenut. It's the MaxConnectionPer1_0Server and MaxConnectionsPerServer settings.

Good suggestions so far. I however want to point out that No Two PC or Internet Connections are alike.
What the CCS files in the Software uses is the overall adverage settings for that particular person.
Also.. The Software has a Readme File in it for users to read when they install it.
The Tweaking is ongoing to this day. mnosteele and others continue to update info that they find works.
Dannjr and the CableNut team continue to look for way to improve the CableNut Software.
That's why it continues to be so popular.
Definitions of each setting is listed in the Links colum on the leftside of the forum. Just clck on the one that relates to Your OS and you can read up on it there.
I hope this clears up some of the reasons why certain things are not in the Adjuster or CCS Files.
But hey.. you never know.
Keep them suggestions coming.  ;)

Thanks
Buggy  ;D

Couldn't you set Cablenut up to run a series of tests then automatically set itself up for that persons best possible settings?

   Is there a way  to show  a range of  rwins   and global  max   it's  going to be hard to without latency.   For example  say the ad-don recommend 64240 for   1.5down connection  but that didn't work with  the user connection.
   If  we  gave them  like a range  of  rwins   there  for  if they want to play around sorta speak    
 They know  how far up they should go with rwin, and  have  a choice of 51100 trough128480.      

  Also maybe   a feature called  expert  where   you can  play around with other   cablenut  values  and  they should   what other values to try without  damaging the connection or  even  a link merged  in  to cablenut  to that page that saids what  all the values do and then the  settings they could  change up to.   For example Large  buffer  size 81920 or  40960 ;D

Once again.. that could run into to many variables. The Cablenut would be the size of a Wndows Operating Software by the time you add all the differance settings possiblities.  :o
But.. I'll leave that thought up to the CableNuts writers to decide that.  ;)

Thanks for the inputs.. You guys/gals are putting out some good suggestions.

Hi  :),

mnosteele has recently mentioned a "ForwardBufferMemory" tweak at TweakXP:

Forward buffer memory tweak, this controls how much RAM TCP/IP uses for storing packet data in the router packet queue.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters]
"ForwardBufferMemory"=dword:00024a00
"NumForwardPackets"=dword:0000024a
"MaxForwardBufferMemory"=dword:00024a00
"MaxNumForwardPackets"=dword:0000024a

It would be nice to be able to insert and tweak those four values in Cablenut.

Best regards

I'd like a possibility to see what every variable does if I tweak it and what kind of values that are accepted for each variable. :)

Yes, I know it's there but it'd be nifty if it was intergrated in the program. :)
Title: Re:Cablenut What would you want
Post by: mccoffee on July 12, 2004, 09:25:33 am
this a variation of thease settings I tried asking dann  to link that in the program some how but hey everything you need to know is the tcpip whitepapers


nitialLargeBufferCount = 100
InitialMediumBufferCount = 240
InitialSmallBufferCount = 320
Title: Autotune Feature
Post by: kokoko3k on January 13, 2005, 09:21:14 am
I would like to have an "autotune feature" in cablenut.

I imagine to select some fileld to change in a range and some file to download from internet.
Cablenut will then change settings in a selected step,reboot the machine, test them and then reboot logging the results and so on.

We colud then run it in the night (low congestion) and wake up with those parameters optimized.

doesn't this sounds interesting ?

http://j79zlr.com/cablenutXP2k.php this is a webisite that would give you the values auto

or you could use the cablenut update which has settings for every type of connection

hey,, you can automatically get the appropriate setting :-
1: from http://j79zlr.com/cablenutXP2k.php  thanks Dr!! :) and
2: for the rite value you can "ENTER THE MTU VALUE" and get the exat value  from the available "TCP analyser link"
3: For proper upload and download speed of your ISP...also host ...u can use the "host speed"...value from ...results at http://testmy.net/a-dslnuts.... :)thanks again!!!
4: Enter the values and compute them......embedd the resultant ccs file and Viola!!! ur connection has been custom tweaked to its max optimum value..

Well, I'd like to see support for Windows XP x64 Edition.  I'm not sure but I think Cablenut does not currently work with x64.

Cablenut is not Driver/hardware driven but registry driven and allot of NICs still arent at 64bit with there drivers..
but its noted. thanks

i think yall should gather up the different tiers from the few major internet providers and have a ready made preset for that persons tier/service provider

i know there are already pre-made tier files but none of them seem to fit the bill
im either 1mbit less or so many kbs away from correct

the tiers dont update that often and doing it once would bring the program up to date

i didnt mind using a 'close match' with all those detailed settings.. but i would be much more satisfied if the preset was made specifically for my tier.. and i think for you admins that make the lists to save it shouldnt be hard
