i have roadrunner cable modem service and my download speeds (as per dslreports and speakeasy) are always very fast. The problem is my web surfing could use help big time. i have tweaked my brains out with DRTcp, set the right RWin numbers, MTU is 1500, Windows Scaling and Time stamp are on since my RWIN exceeds 65535 (i made it a multple of eight), Black Hole is off, etc. For downloaded purposs, zero complaints, but web surfing is another story.
i have downloaded the patch from speedguide.net for faster webloads as well, and although some improvement, not really for surfing purposes...any suggestions or patches you could reccomend?
my computer is pretty old though: ibm pentium II, 128 MB of RAM.
