Iv'e never had a download speed above 7 k with any provider, modem, or computer I have owned. 7 k is very rare and only happens around once a year for me. 5k is the usual. I have used download accelerators and internet boosters but only increased the usual by maybe 1k(used to be around 4). Does anyone know of a good way to increase my speed to at least an average of 7k or higher?

Thanks,
Joe

um if you are using a normal 56k modem..7k is the ABSOLUTE maximum..and thats if your connected at 56000

56000/8 = 7000 which = 7k

So thats your max, sorry man

Get Broadband or switch to a provider that deals with duplexing modems. Try pcpitstop.com. They have some no-frills, free online apps that perform registry hacks. That 5.4K download is what I used to get though. Theres really nothing you can do about it.

Hehe....
I'm going on a new DSL service in Sweden... maxing around 400kb/s and they are going to double their downstream speed, so I'm not complaining...

How to get 3 more max speed (i don't know if it work with XP but it work with 9x and ME):

Youc an download this file that change the registry and it will add 3 more max speed when you go in the properties of your modem.

Registry change

Or you can post a reply and i'll try to translate all the process to you, but it's long and the file does it all for you.

That registry change can up your max speed a little yes, but it can also DECIMATE your ping and cause massive packetloss I really DO NOT recommend using it...thats just my opinion from a networking standpoint, there is no need for a 56k modem to need port access of 961000, all it does it cause buffer problems and packetloss

Rechange all the values...

You can view the registry file's values by right-clicking, then edit. It'll open in NotePad and you can see what it changed...

TTL
Fast Retransmision support
SACK
Simultaneous HTTP connections

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
