    Default how to speed your internet Connection.

    hi all.

    today i will show you how to speed your internet Connection,follow these steps:
    1-go to path : /etc/sysctl.conf (in root privileges )
    2-at the last of the file write these lines:
    PHP Code:
      # increase TCP max buffer size setable using setsockopt()
    net.core.rmem_max 16777216
    net
    .core.wmem_max 16777216
    # increase Linux autotuning TCP buffer limits
    # min, default, and max number of bytes to use
    # set max to at least 4MB, or higher if you use very high BDP paths
    net.ipv4.tcp_rmem 4096 87380 16777216
    net
    .ipv4.tcp_wmem 4096 65536 16777216
    # don't cache ssthresh from previous connection
    net.ipv4.tcp_no_metrics_save 1
    net
    .ipv4.tcp_moderate_rcvbuf 1
    # recommended to increase this for 1000 BT or higher
    net.core.netdev_max_backlog 2500
    # for 10 GigE, use this, uncomment below
    # net.core.netdev_max_backlog = 30000
    # Turn off timestamps if you're on a gigabit or very busy network
    # Having it off is one less thing the IP stack needs to work on
    #net.ipv4.tcp_timestamps = 0
    # disable tcp selective acknowledgements.
    net.ipv4.tcp_sack 0
    #enable window scaling
    net.ipv4.tcp_window_scaling 
    save the file and out.
    and Congratulations!
    thanks.

    in what way does it speed the connection?

    i ask because i ran an online speed test, then made the changes,
    restarted networking and ran the same speed text again, and got these
    results (a slight slowing of download speed):

    down up
    before 8.48 0.85
    after 8.46 0.85

    i am using DSL, perhaps this tip only works for cable or dialup? or what??

    secondly, i wonder what happens when IPv6 is involved..

    I saw no change in test results from tests at Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test

    Before: 1.52 Mbps Down, 0.13 Mbps Up
    After: 1.52 Mbps Down, 0.13 Up

    Rebooted and tested again.

    Before: 1.52 Mbps Down, 0.13 Mbps Up

    How much faster was your internet?

    the tips is for speeding the browser speed,and for all the connections(DSL.Dial up..etc)
    on my computer the connection was fast after this tip more than before!but if the tips was slowing your internet connection just go to the same file and remove the lines you have add...
    thanks.

    Can you give us some before and after figures? How much more than before? Don't make claims that you can't support with facts.

    Thanks.

    Looks like you needed the help.

    Now was it so hard to start your original post with something like.

    My internet speed was 0.3 down and 0.12 up, after adding this code to my /etc/sysctl.conf file (in root privileges ), my speed increased to 0.7 down and there was no change in my upload speed. Then post the code.

    Are the speeds in kbps, Kbps, or Mbps?
