No, this could only happen if your min window receive size is set too large.


Download and use cablenut http://cablenut.com/. Use the settings file for the closest internet connection you have and read the readme file. Reboot.

Actually it may seem faster as this forces the OS to use the high res timer. When media player is open or a Macromedia SWF file is open in Internet Explorer the OS switches to the high-resolution timer. Running media player in the background is one of the ways game server ops get more FPS from their servers (theoretically up to 1000 FPS).

Aas far as tweaking setting I feel the TCP Optimizer is better than Cablenut as you can set things based on your connection speed.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
