Hi Razer2k13

Your Internet speed can be attributed to a few different things

Line speed from your ISP

Type of line

Distance from your exchange

Time of Day

If you use a router go in to its settings and look for something like DownStream Connection Speed / UpStream Connection Speed, this is the speed your router gets and can be quite different to the speed your browser can see/use.

In addition to what Stephanie has just said may I ask, is the speed you are receiving the speed that was advertised by your ISP? It is possible for your ISP to cap your download speed based on the package and price you are paying.

Also you say your speed varies from

80Kbps - 1000Kbps (1Mbps)

This is a huge range if what you are saying is correct... Do you mean 800Kbps? If not then I would strongly consider ringing your ISP to find the problem since your speed should not vary that much. As for your initial question, there is very little you can do on your machine to directly improve your download speed and any settings that would affect it will be on your router.

Hope this helps,
Josh

I would do an online speed test. At the end it should show how your setup compares to others with the same ISP. If you are way down in the percentage then one of those tcp/ip tuners might be worth a try. TCPOptimizer never hurt my system. Just make a restore point or 2 first so you can get back old settings if something gets munged.

If you are receiving substantially less speed than your account specifies you should contact your ISP. No optimizer will do much good if there is a serious problem.

The idea is to determine if it's the ISP or the particular machine. When you call with a network problem the support technicians tend to blame it on something on your end of the wire. If you can get the specs, such as your tcp/ip settings and paste 'em into something you'll have them handy to refute the assumption that it's your PC not their network that's the problem.

The main thing I find with TCP Optimizer is if somehow the window setting got changed to something rediculously small, it may fix it up. It's not a magic pill to make a fast network. It's a quick way to put in reasonable settings. Also manually typing in numbers is prone to typos.

Could you make the question more specific? I don't know exactly what you mean by what do you mean.
