Internet speed on win98se

Recommended Posts

I have a etower 633id that has a NC100 V2 card for the internet. The 633id has max upgrades, 1.4gig micro, 512meg ram

and some 98se updates? On the Speakeasy internet speed test, windows clocks only 3meg+ on recieve and 768k on send with roadrunner cable. System also has a PUPPY LINUX that on same test, same hardware, pegs meter at 20meg+ on recieve but same 768k on send?

While on the net I listen to internet radio, Blues, Bigband, or early rock and windows does this just fine while the LINUX doesnt, droping out of browser now and again, so I use the linux for big downloads only and then have it store info into windows section.

QUESTIONS

Can I get the windows internet speed faster, like the linux speed?

How valid is the speakeasy internet speed test?

I feel a lot better now that I know I'm not the only one who has experienced this.

Your question prompted a Yahoo search and I found this site which looks very interesting.

http://www.speedguide.net/downloads.php

I haven't tried it yet but I'm impressed with the quality of their documentation and it is supposed to work on 9x.

I hope we both have success.

I have used Speedguides optimizer on all my computers. 1 Vista, 1 ME, and 1 98SE all unmodified except for optimizer changes. My modem says trained at 1536/1024 Kbps. I routinely get readings from Speedtest.net of 1305-1440 Kbps down and 730-850 Kbps up on all macHines depending on test site.. PC Pitstop once gave 1640/975.

Nitro UCSC Test on Vista done about 10 minutes ago. For some reason always 100 Kbps lower than Speedtest.net. Until I used Speedguides optimizer download was about 900, up was about 650, and the reciever limited value was over 25%.

Sorry I didnt reply yet. Too many systems, too many projects. My 2nd 98SE system with more ram, SIS chips, on a P3 running slower has 2 times the internet speed then the Intel 810 chips on a P3?

Sweet William did you try out that site yet?

On one of my GREEN systems right now. Under 10 watts power use. A Wyse 3150SE, 128meg ram, 32meg flash IDE drive running WIN CE which I dont like.

Thanks for the replys!!!!!

win98se with 'Autopatcher' installed and run, broadband, cable modem, USB 2.0 connection.

http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/

BEFORE using the http://www.speedguide.net/downloads.php

Last Result:

Download Speed: 2067 kbps (258.4 KB/sec transfer rate)

Upload Speed: 241 kbps (30.1 KB/sec transfer rate)

AFTER using it:

Last Result:

Download Speed: 2013 kbps (251.6 KB/sec transfer rate)

Upload Speed: 241 kbps (30.1 KB/sec transfer rate)

-a little worse, but then I tested again a couple of minutes later:

Last Result:

Download Speed: 2114 kbps (264.3 KB/sec transfer rate)

Upload Speed: 239 kbps (29.9 KB/sec transfer rate)

So it made no real difference for me.
