Connection And Bandwidth

Recommended Posts

I've got Comcast cable modem, it's about 2000/128. When you have PPPoE can you hook up a normal firewall/router box? It runs some software on your PC, right? I've never actually seen a setup with PPPoE so I'm curious.

bellsouth dsl .

2003-01-27 12:23:28 EST: 1161 / 211

Your download speed : 1161518 bps, or 1161 kbps.

A 141.7 KB/sec transfer rate.

Your upload speed : 211640 bps, or 211 kbps.

Seems like broadband .. above the 1mbit barrier!

Yes, my main box is hooked up via a modem and it has to dial up to the service. But my two other secondary machines are connected to a router and has an "always on" connection.

I also have SBC 1500/128 ADSL using PPPoE. According to the docs that came with it, I have an Efficent Networks model 5260 LAN Modem. But every time I call SBC support they call it an Ethernet Bridge. I don't quite understand that, but supposedly this modem, with a chip that it doesn't have because PacBell doesn't require it, could be converted into a router. So maybe that's why the call it an Ethernet Bridge?

With dial up, you can use your computer while you do other things. Like cook. Vaccuum and stuff. With cable other activities kind of stop. No time to polish shoes or anything.

Set the TCP Receive Window to 64240

Set the Path MTU Discovery to Yes

Select your network card in the drop-down list and then set the MTU to 1500

Click the Apply button and then the Exit button.

You must reboot for these changes to take effect!!

After rebooting, re-run DrTCP on the machine, re-select your appropriate network card from the drop-down list and verify that all the settings were retained.

 

this may help the speed
