Connection And Bandwidth


Recommended Posts

I've got Comcast cable modem, it's about 2000/128. When you have PPPoE can you hook up a normal firewall/router box? It runs some software on your PC, right? I've never actually seen a setup with PPPoE so I'm curious.

Yes, my main box is hooked up via a modem and it has to dial up to the service. But my two other secondary machines are connected to a router and has an "always on" connection.

I also have SBC 1500/128 ADSL using PPPoE. According to the docs that came with it, I have an Efficent Networks model 5260 LAN Modem. But every time I call SBC support they call it an Ethernet Bridge. I don't quite understand that, but supposedly this modem, with a chip that it doesn't have because PacBell doesn't require it, could be converted into a router. So maybe that's why the call it an Ethernet Bridge?

Set the TCP Receive Window to 64240

Set the Path MTU Discovery to Yes

Select your network card in the drop-down list and then set the MTU to 1500

Click the Apply button and then the Exit button.

You must reboot for these changes to take effect!!

After rebooting, re-run DrTCP on the machine, re-select your appropriate network card from the drop-down list and verify that all the settings were retained.

 

this may help the speed
