I just upgraded from charter to 10mbps from 3mbps, seems when i do a speed test, I have been to a bunch of them, none ever register faster then 7mbps I have giganews and i tried to download from my normal newsgroups wich i get great sppeds from, and they don't seem to be much differnt, I tried the optimiser from this site and it didnt seem to do anything, they gave me a new modem since the one i had was old and it wouldnt support the 10 connection, I think the modem is ok, but I am not sure what is wrong.
here is some test I have did. for help, any help is appeciated!

TCP options string = 020405b40103030401010402
MTU = 1500
MTU is fully optimized for broadband.
MSS = 1460
Maximum useful data in each packet = 1460, which equals MSS.
Default TCP Receive Window (RWIN) = 1027840
RWIN Scaling (RFC1323) = 4 bits (scale factor of 8)
Unscaled TCP Receive Window = 64240
RWIN is a multiple of MSS
Other RWIN values that might work well with your current MTU/MSS:
513920 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 8)
256960 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 4)
128480 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 2)
64240 (MSS x 44)
bandwidth * delay product (Note this is not a speed test):
Your TCP Window limits you to: 41113.6 kbps (5139.2 KBytes/s) @ 200ms
Your TCP Window limits you to: 16445.44 kbps (2055.68 KBytes/s) @ 500ms
MTU Discovery (RFC1191) = ON
Time to live left = 54 hops
TTL value is ok.
Timestamps (RFC1323) = OFF
Selective Acknowledgements (RFC2018) = ON
IP type of service field (RFC1349) = 00000000 (0)
No router just norton internet security wich i have turned off to test also, and i come up with the same results.
I have tried downloading windows vista from microsofts site thinking it should have a good connection, but it usallt starts at 7 and dropps to 3-5
BTW I live in MO, incase you didnt see the starting trace route
Thanks in advance for any help.
