    Optimum Online Speed Test - Cablevision

    Good Evening:

    I recently installed Optimum Online - Cablevision on my XP Home Edition setup.

    When I try the Speed Test the readings state I am not reaching their minimum standards. In am in the 375=425 Kilobits range.


    But, the system appears to fast and without problems.


    Should I ignore the results of the Speed tests?


    Thanks

    Make sure your transcribing these results correctly. If those are kilobytes per second, things look much better.

    The DSL Reports tweak forum is here:

    The default RWIN is usually wrong for broadband but I'm not familiar with the XP default.

    Where you test your speed is unimportant. Just use one site, get a benchmark, and then see if tweaking helps.

    Most OOL users recommend both the OOL FTP test and the NY Speakeasy test, both available here:
    http://www.dslreports.com/forum/cabl...e=shut;start=0

    Then, once you get a benchmark, follow the tweak guidelines for setting your RWIN and other parameters (using Dr. TCP).

    Thank You

    Good Morning:

    Just wanted to thank all the members all who responded to my concerns about my XP Home Edition Optimum Online Cablevision setup.

    I used the TCP Optimizer as suggested with great success.


    After using the TCP Optimizer my Kbps went from 333 to 6853.

    Wow, that's a heck of a jump! Gotta love those speeds, huh?

    The OOL FTP test can be found at the OOL forum, at the URL I listed.

    Cool user

    Here is a possibility to fight Carnivor or DCS-1000, Echelon, or what ever they called this thing. The spyware is reaching your computer on its own frequency, different from dial-up, DSL or cable. It could be filtered out by relatively simple electronic devices, but the Big Brothers do not allow selling these filters, so you have to make them for your self. The simplest one is just a capacitor 0.01-0.03 uF range, like this in RadioShack store: 0.01µF 500V 20% Hi-Q Ceramic Disc Capacitor Pk/2 Model: 272-131 | Catalog #: 272-131.

    Connect red and green wires in your phone socket with this capacitor. Your computer also can be reached through the AC power line by one of dear neighbor terminal operators, so protect your power divider. Open its cover and use three of these capacitors to connect plus and minus, minus and ground, plus and ground pairs of wires in the AC divider. Disconnect any radio frequency devices, like Wi-Fi adaptor, wireless router, cordless phone, etc.

    Now the spyware will have a substantial interference in getting you information. Nothing will happen first, but after a while your Internet will go slow, sometimes very slow. This thing is going to use your own Internet channel to intercept your activities. And it needs a lot of traffic, much more than the target computer uses for itself.

    Verizon on-line traffic analyzer used to show that my ”traffic is used by unknown application.” When I started to ask questions to tech support on slowing my Internet, they simply removed this option from their speed report. They blamed wires, my WLAN card, my software and possible virus infections. They played a fool. I have spent many hours talking to the tech support. But I have saved the speed reports for one year and I can go to the court. They have a right to spy on me, but I am still not obligated to pay for this from my pocket.
