Im satisfied with my Bell Sympatico Connection (PPPOE) but I have seen peoplel get much better results than mine, I just wanna optimize it. (Im running Win.98)
Here is my TC/IP analyzer results:
TCP options string = 020405ac01010402
MTU = 1492
MTU seems to be optimized for PPPoE... If you are not on a PPPoE connection, consider increasing your MTU to 1500 for optimal throughput.
MSS = 1452
Maximum useful data in each packet = 1452, which is equal to MSS.
MSS is optimized for PPPoE. If you are not on a PPPoE connection, consider increasing your MTU value.
Default Receive Window (RWIN) = 65044
RWIN Scaling (RFC1323) = 0 bits
Unscaled Receive Window = 65044
For optimum performance, consider changing RWIN to a multiple of MSS.
Other values for RWIN that might work well with your current MTU/MSS:
511104 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 8)
255552 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 4)
127776 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 2)
63888 (MSS x 44)
bandwidth * delay product:
Your RcvWindow limits you to: 2601.76 kbps (325.22 KBytes/s) @ 200ms
Your RcvWindow limits you to: 1040.704 kbps (130.088 KBytes/s) @ 500ms
MTU Discovery (RFC1191) = OFF
Time to live left = 237 hops
TTL value is ok.
Timestamps (RFC1323) = OFF
Selective Acknowledgements (RFC2018) = ON
IP type of service field (RFC1349)= 00000000
