Six Steps to a Faster Broadband Connection - PC World
some good info plus other.
This might help, never hurts. I have not problems but my system is only 2yrs old... I also have it updated to the latest modem firmware.

My laptop which uses Marvel drivers has not problems and i have moved it to several sites. (different ISP still no problems.)[/QUOTE

I have installed Tweak 7 But nothing works on it unless you pay $50us
Its a lot to pay for something that may not work

I installed the Beta version but it doesnt work either

My Ipv6 doesnt work
& also DHCP is enabled everywhere but doesnt seem to work either

This maybe the root of all my problems
do You have any idea how to fix this
Cheers

OK, I do understand about TweakUI. what parts of Tweakui do you want to try? many times is simply is a reg tweak. and all you need to do is edit the registry to change that...
yes, many time it is "dangerous" to do if your not sure... but I also know that many "tweaks are available from trusted sites." Ask and you will rec how to from several sources..

I have several and I'm sure many other techy members also have.
As you know its easy to save the how to: then you always have a reference file.. mank sure you name them.
sample here is:
change UAC:
Quote:
UAC, otherwise known as UAP (User Account Control/User Account Protection) is one of those features that just seem to get in the way of doing your work. This feature is designed with the average user in mind who needs this kind of protection to keep them out of trouble. If you are reading this, then chances are you know how to manage your own system. Here is how to disable UAP:
1. Press the Windows Key + R (winkey + R).
2. At the run prompt, type "msconfig" without the quotes.
3. Go to the Tools tab, scroll down and select "Disable UAP" and click the run button.
4. You should see a command prompt open and it will say "Command completed successfully".
5. Reboot and enjoy the freedom to control your system as you wish.

It’s the obnoxious, nagging popup window that will be your life for the next 3-5 years unless you switch back to XP in frustration, or to a better OS like… OS X, Suse, Ubuntu, or even XP.
Note: Disabling UAC will lead to a less secure system, so be warned.
Windows need your permission to annoy the crap out of you:
There’s a quick way you can enable or disable this annoying window from the command line:
Disable UAC
C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /k %windir%\System32\reg.exe ADD HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v EnableLUA /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
Enable UAC
C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /k %windir%\System32\reg.exe ADD HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v EnableLUA /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
After you enable or disable UAC, you will have to reboot your computer for the changes to take effect.
many people simply send you a (program) and say run this... well phooy. you can do it, it also had revert back to origina.

Tweak 2

Without an ability to control the Tcp Window Size all these utilities that swear they will increase your raw speed
and bandwith in Vista are nothing but smoke and mirrors. It can't be done because the Tcp Window Size in Vista is
based purely on AutoTuning being either on or off, and there is no 'magic' switch or registry entry to use. If you
disable AutoTuning your Tcp Window Size will be at the default, with AutoTuning enabled Vista will tune your
connection far more efficiently then any tweaker or registry entry adjustment could ever hope to do. If you want
to play around with TCP and AutoTuning you can do so from an admin command prompt using the below commands:
(these are not the only TCP commands, there are still a few that can be set in the registry but they do nothing
for raw speed and bandwidth as they only set vaious parameters of items in the TCP packet its self)
----------------------------------------------------
I see almost instant difference with this small legal tweak...
netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=normal add this -> start-> cmd -> run as admin (wait for popup) -> copy paste netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disable {enter} wait for popup almost instant - close and start browsing. almost instantly you will see iy canopen many many pages of different sites, and it fast.... default setting is 10 and you will see a slow down when you have 6 open, and many crashes at 8 and total freezes at 9 ro 10). exit out.
netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disable
netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=enable
netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=default

If you do not like this tweak ( revert back to default setting). all legal and info how to available from MS. by asking.
IMHO another 100% screw up on MS part. ( try it you might like it )

disable is Default so apparently some program you tested or used did change the TCP settings, since it seems you DID SEE A DIFFERENCE.

autotuninglevel - One of the following values:
disabled: Fix the receive window at its default
value.
normal: Allow the receive window to grow to
accomodate almost all scenarios.

to see all the cmd what it does:
Quote:
C:\Users\Snuffy>netsh int tcp set global /?
Usage: set global [[rss=]disabled|enabled|default]
[[chimney=]disabled|enabled|default]
[[autotuninglevel=]
disabled|highlyrestricted|restricted|normal|experimental]
[[congestionprovider=]none|ctcp|default]
[[netdma=]disabled|enabled|default]
[[dca=]disabled|enabled|default]
[[ecncapability=]disabled|enabled|default]
[[timestamps=]disabled|enabled|default]
Parameters:
Tag Value
rss - One of the following values:
disabled: Disable receive-side scaling.
enabled : Enable receive-side scaling.
default : Restore receive-side scaling state to
the system default.
chimney - One of the following values:
disabled: Disable Chimney offload.
enabled : Enable Chimney offload.
automatic: Enable Chimney offload with
performance heuristics.
default : Restore Chimney offload state to the
system default (automatic).
autotuninglevel - One of the following values:
disabled: Fix the receive window at its default
value.
highlyrestricted: Allow the receive window to
grow beyond its default value, but do so
very conservatively.
restricted: Allow the receive window to grow
beyond its default value, but limit such
growth in some scenarios.
normal: Allow the receive window to grow to
accomodate almost all scenarios.
experimental: Allow the receive window to grow
to accomodate extreme scenarios.
congestionprovider - One of the following values:
none: Use the built-in standard congestion
control algorithm.
ctcp: Use the add-on Compound TCP congestion
control algorithm.
default: Restore the selected provider to the
system default.
netdma - One of the following values:
disabled: Disable use of NetDMA by TCP/IP.
enabled : Enable use of NetDMA by TCP/IP.
default : Restore state to the system
default (enabled).
dca - One of the following values:
disabled: Disable Direct Cache Access when using
NetDMA.
enabled : Enable Direct Cache Access when using
NetDMA.
default : Restore state to the system
default (disabled).
ecncapability - One of the following values:
disabled: Disable ECN Capability.
enabled : Enable ECN Capability.
default : Restore state to the system default.
timestamps - One of the following values:
disabled: Disable RFC 1323 timestamps.
enabled: Enable RFC 1323 timestamps.
default: Restore state to the system default.
Remarks: Sets TCP parameters that affect all connections.
Example:
set global enabled enabled normal
set global rss=enabled chimney=enabled autotuninglevel=normal

C:\Users\Snuffy>
Seems this allows you to do exactly what the TCP Tune by DocTCP. only you control not what TweakUI or DocTCP thinks.

netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled
(my bad) sorry did further checking an Windows 7 changed some commands:
it is auto set to disabled. so normal turns it on. you have 5 choices now.
see below.
netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=

replaced with [autotuninglevel=]
disabled
highlyrestricted
restricted
normal
experimental

WARNING: This can dramatically degrade
performance in common scenarios and should
only be used for research purposes.
