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:
# 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 = 1
save the file and out.
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…
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.
Using the default server selected for me my speed was an average of 1.53 Mbps down and 0.13 Mbps up after 3 tests.
Using one on the other side of the state the average was a whopping 1.65 Mbps down or an increase of 0.12 Mbps, while the upload speed remained the same after 3 tests.
Using a server located in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia the first test was 1.67 Mbps down, the second was 1.65 Mbps down and the third came in at 1.26 Mbps down for an average speed of 1.52 Mbps download. Again the upload speed was unchanged.
I had similar results with your code added to my sysctl.conf file. No significant change in speed was observed.
I have a 1.5 Mbps and 0.13 Mbps DSL connection, and you never did answer Denver D’s questions.
your internet speed is more faster than my,so you maybe did not feel the deference,if the tips did not help you do not use it,but never come to me and say in anyway or else that i am Lying or something like that! you can go to the file and remove the lines and everything is over!but never test my sincerity!
Ah hanny, my Syrian friend I do not doubt your sincerity, nor am I calling you a liar. Anyone who comes up with an idea, takes the time to write the code, test it and share it with others is very sincere.
I apologize for saying you did not answer Denver D’s questions. You did say that it works for speeding the browser, and is for all connections.
You understand as a puzzled explorer penguin, I have to test and question.
I did another test last night around 10 PM DST, found a server to connect to in Damascus using Speed Net and I had an average of 0.56 Mbps without your code. Then added the code, uncommented net.core.netdev_max.backlog=3000 and turned off timestamp. Rebooted and tested again, with an average of 0.72 Mbps. Since I had an increase of .12 Mbps before without the code, I can’t safely say it was the code responsible for the 0.16 Mbps increase. Test results with the server in Saudi Arabia, that gave me an average of 1.52 Mbps yesterday, was 0.55 Mbps before and 0.55 Mbps after, when I tested last night. My upload speed remained at 0.13 Mbps for all tests.
After those tests I also realize I misinterpreted your speeds (I have trouble with numbers) and your download speed is faster than your upload speed, as it should be. Are you sure your speeds are in Kbps and not Mbps? They seem similar to mine.
I’ll agree with Denver D, that the boost is more likely for low bandwidth connections.
Waiting to hear from someone to report it worked for them. My browser works pretty fast though, so thanks for the tip, but no thanks I won’t use it.
