Analyze your internet connection – then optimize it!

Want an optimal connection to the internet?  Speedguide has an excellent analyzer.  Remember don’t just use a benchmark to analyzer your connection.   It is good to look at all aspects of your connection.

You can run their analyzer and see if you need to tweak your connection.   Remember set a control by using a benchmark such as before you begin then tweak with TCP Optimizer (Note: I have Verizon 3g in the middle of nowhere):

Example (above)

After reading the recommendations, use TCP Optimizer .  Windows 7 users must right click and run as administrator after saving this file.  This file runs stand alone and is not installed.   TCP Optimizer makes a backup that you can restore if you forget your settings.
