Hi,

I am running Windows XP Pro. I downloaded pathes from speedguide.net such as the @home. I also downloaded a patch for win 2000. Now my d/l speed seems to be going very slow. I am goin at about under 10k/sec now!!!!! i used to go at 200k/sec!! Is there n e way to remove the patches i installed?????????

avoid that site, they tend to add lines to your registry that, as you're finding out, don't always do any good
(my opinion)

go back here and look around, see if you can find the specific patches you installed and delete them from your registry IF you're comfortable working in the registry, if not - then just go to the next link and work from there.

a much better place (again, opinion) is DSLReports , check out the speed test to get a baseline, then use the tweak tool, download DrTCP and make some adjustments - always reboot after

dsl also has good forums specific to cable, dsl, etc

i run cable, so i'm gonna be twice as fast usually, here's a speed test i just ran:
Your download speed : 3059863 bps, or 3059 kbps.
Browsers would show : about a 373.5 k/sec transfer rate.
Your upload speed : 270270 bps, or 270 kbps.
Your connection rocks .. above the 1mbit barrier!


also visit the networking forum here for ideas and help

In XP, System Restore is enabled by default. So, unless you got rid of it, go to Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore and choose a date in bold prior to you making those changes.

Coincidentally, I'm just coming here from Speedguide. If you read deep they say that that @home tweak is dated 1998 and is no longer supported, causes big slowdowns for some... Hope jbcalg's tip helps you to restore (not sure myself what that one does. DSLreports is a great site! Explore tweaking your Rwin values running their bandwidth tests before & after tweaking.
DSLR's values gave me a little higher results on their bandwidth test than Speedguide's did.
You can change these settings by merging easily-created .reg files into your reg.
Post back if you need more info on how.
good luck!

I'll say this, I use speedguide patches on win98 and win2k machines without a problem. After using them I have gone to dslreports and they have no further tweaks over what speedguide gave me. I do beleive your problem was using a win2k patch on winxp

My two cents

I will mark the thread solved
