    Someone mentioned PCPitstop on another thread which lead me to posting this.

    I'm not promoting Cablenut per se, (I really don't like some of the people involved with it...but that's personal), but if something works well for your computer, and it's free, why not use it.

    Go to PCPitstop here...


    ...and take the test. Note your Bandwidth Down and Bandwidth Up speeds. Then download and install CableNut here...


    ...And then get the your personal settings for Cablenut here...


    (If you're stupid like me and can't figure out your Latency, don't worry about it. Just enter 200 in that spot.)

    After you've done this, go back to PCPitstop and take the test again. I'll bet your Bandwidth Down and Bandwidth Up speeds will have improved. At the very least certainly your Bandwidth Down speed will have improved. Mine went from 1306 Kbits/sec to 1698 Kbits/sec.

    If you'd like to see an improvement to your Drives Uncached speeds, note their speeds after taking the test, then download the trial for PerfectDisk Disk Defragmenter here...


    ...Defragment your drives with it, and then go back and take the test again.

    I tried Cablenut for my DSL connection. I setup the program per the ReadMe text file and it didn't improve my Bandwidth Down or Up. :confused:
