I,ve done alot of tweaking to my win2k registry to boost internet performance as described on this unique homepage site.
After trying a few settings, I found out that my download performance increases when I set DefaultTTL higher than the recommenden value of 64. I tried with 256 which gave me best performance for my system. But that gave me 100% package loss so I reduced it to 252 and that works.
Test in MSDOS: (substitute www.speedguide.net with you ISP)
ping -f -l 1460 www.speedguide.net
Are there any issues or comments on this?Maybe this would be a good setting for others as well.
