Tweaks to Optimize Globe Broadband

Hi guys! Due to requests we received thru emails, I'm posting the following guide for optimizing Globe Broadband connections without tweaking the modem.

Be sure to follow the steps correctly as we shall not be held liable in case you mess your connection. This is for Windows XP only. Please ensure that you make a restore point before you proceed as this is an indirect registry modification.
Shall we start?
  • Download TCP Optimizer - a free program for optimizing dial-up, DSL and cable internet connections.
  • Run TCP Optimizer (FYI: the executable file is standalone so there's no installation needed).
  • In the General Settings tab, do the following:
    • [Check] Custom settings
    • [Check] Modify All Network Adapters
    • Your network adapter will be automatically selected, if not type your adapter manually.
    • MTU: 1452 (Read complete definition of MTU)
    • TTL: 64 (Read complete definition of TTL)
    • TCP Receive Window: 937500
    • MTU Discovery: Yes
    • Black Hole Detect: No
    • Selective Acks: Yes
    • Max Duplicate ACKs: 3
  • In the TCP 1323 Options, uncheck both Windows Scaling and Timestamps.
  • In the Advanced Settings tab, put the following:
    • Max Connections per Server: 16
    • Max Connections per 1.0 Server: 16

  • Setting the slider anywhere between 1500 to 3000 kbps range is your discretion until you get satisfactory speed.

Download, install and run latest version of CCleaner to eliminate crap files in your hard disk drives.
