TCP Optimizer

The latest issue of Scot’s Newsletter tells of his new FIOS broadband connection (15mbps!). Near the end of the article he mentions optimizing his network settings for his connection. I haven’t done anything like that since I was on dial-up. I went to the Speakeasy Speed Test (which Scot recommends in his article) and found that I was only getting 3mbps on my connection when my cable company says it should be 5mbps. I then downloaded the SpeedGuide.net TCP Optimizer (which Scot also recommends) and ran it. I chose the optimal settings, rebooted and testing again. I was now at 5mbps.

Good stuff… thanks Scot!
