    Anyone know of a way to speed up connection to a single site, I couldnt care less it the whole rest of the net was slow for me, I want a fast connection to a specific site.

    The site I am talking of is a text based/java game site (I will not post the site name here as I am not sure if it is allowed or would be classed as spamming)

    other people can play the game faster than me, I upgraded my broadband connection to a faster speed but it did nothing to speed up the game.

    someone told me some technical jargon a while back to say to my service provider to make it go faster but when I rang them they hadnt a clue what I was talking about and as I didnt either I let sleeping dogs lie.

    I do know the servers to the site are in england and I am in Australia (I am guessing that would be a bad thing)

    any clues/ideas/solutions a technichaly challanged person may be able to put into action?

    you need to explain which part is making you slow. while playing the game? loading among pages?
    explain more on the game and when do you experience the so called lag.
    it's ok if you put the site link here. I would like to see what it is.

    what speed is the ISP giving you? are you getting the speed you paid for?

    For now generally I would suggest you to increase your availability for offline files space.

    ie 6
    internet options>general setting tab click on settings> and raise the bar that indicates temporary internet files a little higher.
    this should help the overall speed of your frequent visit sites.


    firefox user?
    1.Type "about:config" into the address bar and hit return. Scroll down and look for the following entries:

    network.http.pipelining network.http.proxy.pipelining network.http.pipelining.maxrequests

    Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time. When you enable pipelining it will make several at once, which really speeds up page loading.

    2. Alter the entries as follows:

    Set "network.http.pipelining" to "true"

    Set "network.http.proxy.pipelining" to "true"

    Set "network.http.pipelining.maxrequests" to some number like 30. This means it will make 30 requests at once.

    3. Lastly right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it "nglayout.initialpaint.delay" and set its value to "0". This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it recieves.

    Im not sure about IE7 though hadn't and will never use it.

    512Kbps is all I know on the speed, unlimited download

    I did the speed test to 2 different servers (London, England and Perth, Australia) yesterday and today.

    The site is www.u-dominion.com
    I use IE 7 or Opera 9

    The site is designed and tested for IE it works fine with IE
    Opera is slightly faster although there are issue occasionaly which are bearable
    Firefox is incompatable with the site

    ummm the problem is the time it takes to refresh when in the game which is a simple click the link wait for it to load (the wait time is too long) click the next (no fancy graphics to load, just text links)

    well when I pressed the link i temporarily got a time out. and never been able to go to the site at all.

    the problems comes from that sever itself. no matter how fast packets goes there it takes time to come back.
    I assume your game is real time and has big dependence on Ping.
    in this case. there's nothing much you can do except upgrading to a 1mbit connection.
    do what I thought you to do. put more chace space availability. on you browser,

    There really is no way to "speed up" a link for a specific site. What you see is what you get. Time for faster service if that's too slow.

    This appears to be the service you need. ;)
