  • How to find my Bandwidth?

    For internet booster, how do I find out my Bandwidth?

    Hi Mike
    If you do not know what connection speed you are paying your service provider for, you can for example check it here:

      I don't know what is correct, depending on what server I choose, I can get up to 20+ megabits, where some servers I only get 6 for my download speed. How am I supposed to get my bandwidth from that?

        Hi Mike
        What does it say on your bill that you pay for?
        What does the function automatically choose?
        enoskype has written several informative posts about this - try finding those with the search function
        This one for example:

          Thanks solbjerg, I think the best bet for to know the correct broadband speed is to ask the ISP provider the maximum allowable download speed which they made the deal with Mike406.
          For all the adjustments in Internet Optimizer, one should know the real max. allowable download speed.
          It can be found in the ADSL router by directly making a connection to its IP address, usually 192.168.1.1, using the Admin. name and password.

          Cheers.

            Ok, I called them and figured out that my max download speed possible is 22 megaBITS per second. So for the Internet Booster, are the choices in megaBITS or megaBYTES?

            Thanks,
            Mike

              Kbps=>Kilobits per second.
              or,
              Mbps=>Megabits per second.

              It is shown under "Please choose your bandwidth" as
              Your bandwidth : # Kbps
              or,
              Your bandwidth : # Mbps


              Cheers.

                Hi Mike
                Bandwidth is usually measured in bits per second (Kbps-Mbps or Gbps)
                If you want to "translate"/approximate that into bytes it is customary to divide the bits by 8 to get the bytes.
                Cheers

                  Ok, I know how to convert them, but what I'm wondering does the Internet Booster ask for your bandwidth in bytes or bits?

                    Sorry, I thought that was answered
                    Well - bits

                      Thanks. :) Sorry but one more question, there isn't a choice for 20 mbps, so would I round down to the 10 mark, or up to the 50?

                      Thanks again,
                      Mike

                        OK Mike406,

                        Do you know your type of connection? (PPPoE, Cable, etc.)
                        First use the Automatic optimization, it will give an idea of the RWIN value.
                        Follow the prosedure described in the given link below for speednet, and paste the result here.

                        Since you decided to use Expert Mode, I would advice you to read the whole optimize internet connection thread.
                        If you have questions, then please ask here, in this thread.

                        If you want an answer to your question, then try 10Mbps first, and then 50Mbps and compare the speeds you get to decide.

                        Cheers.

                          Nope, I don't want to use Expert Mode, I just want to go with the Auto Optimization only. I'll try the 10 first then move up a notch.

                          Thanks,
                          Mike

                            OK Mike406,

                            I made a mistake of assuming you have chosen the Expert Mode, as I forgot that even in automatic optimization option, there is a slide to choose the bandwidth. It has been quite long that I have not used that option.

                            FYI, you may still need to adjust your RWIN & TTL values for a better optimization though!

                            Cheers.
