The DSL Speed Optimizer tool modifies your TCP/IP configuration, which allows your system to receive data at a faster rate.

What is TCP/IP?

TCP/IP stands for Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol and allows your system to communicate with other networked computers over the Internet. The standard TCP/IP configuration is optimized for communications over small local networks.

Which parameters and settings does the DSL Speed Optimizer modify?

  1. TCP 1323 Extension - This parameter enables enhancements to the TCP/IP protocol that provide improved performance over high-speed connections.

  2. TCP Receive Window - This parameter specifies the number of bytes a sender (the source you are downloading from) may transmit without receiving an acknowledgment.Modifying it determines the maximum size offered by the system.

  3. MTU (Maximum Transmission Units) - The MTU defines the largest single unit of data that can be transmitted over your connection.
