Connection speed ?

Discussion in 'Tech Talk' started by Washington D.C., Dec 24, 2004.

  1. I have DSL,rated max 750kb/s.On my Windows XP and Linux PC's I get very close to 750kb/s.But on my Windows 98 SE PC,no matter what I do it consistantly connects to the internet at about 500 kb/s.I am using the same hard wired router for all PC's.Any thoughts on why the Win 98 is slower to the net?

    Differences in the IP stacks in the operating systems.

    Try Solaris 10 and see if you can saturate the line. They've taken the legacy threading out and you can actually fill a 10 Meg pipe ;f
