My network has one Windows XP workstation and 5 '98 workstations run by a Linux Redhat 8 server. My Jetstream download speed on the XP workstation is around 390B/sec but on the '98 workstations it is around 115KB/sec. These speeds are from the Jetstreamgames speed test. Is there something I can do to get the '98 workstations up to proper speed? Any help would be appreciated.

Did you mean 390KB/sec for the Windows XP Computer, because otherwise the '98 machines download faster

Your Quick. Yes I did mean 390KB/sec. I reposted the message. Cheers

the DSL router reports:

DS Speed 7616 Kbps US Speed 768 Kbps
(yep, its exciting)

here is my test data:

my machine is p200mmx with 64 MB ram. and it is behind a firewall/hub.

Your line speed is approximately 658.1 Kbps or 80.6 K bytes/sec.
(not look very good, does the job anyway)

what does your network look like? a peer-peer, or all the connections go thru the linux box?

i would start by checking your mtu and rwin settings.

I agree with tweak'e, my Jetstream connection was crippled until I dealt to those two settings.

Hi,try going to the site nzdsl.co.nz and have a look for the registry tweaks there.Not sure exactly where now,but I have had a guy use them and went from getting around 8-10KB/s to 300K.It made a huge difference.Just remember to read the fine print associated with any registry hack.
