    I discovered running adaware and removing that gain_trickler thingy sped my cable internet up after it started slowing down (about a month after i got it).
     
  6. i live in Cali, but in my area i dont think cable connection is very popular. well i had analog cable tv b4 and it was pretty fast but now dat that i recently installed digital cable tv i guess thats the problem?

    sagima- i run adaware every 2 weeks so ima sure i removed it. but still didnt effect my sys

    if you are using XP, I strongly wouldnt reccomend that tcp/ip tweaker... the optimal settings puts the RcvWin WAY TOO HIGH... possibly resulting in lost packets, and ping timeouts... It is an informative site, but I strongly disagree with this lil tweak app they are putting out for the use on XP.

    A forum/site I have found a little more useful than speedguide is dslreports .... great forums there among other broadband tools, not just for dsl
