DRTCP from this page to your desktop. Open it and enter desired value for TCP Receive Window (RWIN). Click Save, then Exit and Re-boot your PC so that the change will "take."
For Macs, see this: »All things Macintosh »How do I tweak in OS X?
How is this done in Linux?
Vista has a new auto-tuning stack. Tweaking the TCP Receive window is usually unnecessary.
"Can I use this in Window 7 64bit?" - Unfortunately no. Windows 7, like Vista has an auto-tuning stack. The auto-tuning can be disabled but it works well and shouldn't be messed with unless you know what you're doing. DRTCP and RWIN tweaking will not work with an auto-tuning stack. Auto-tuning can be disabled but there's little reason to do so; it works well. HTH
I just upgraded my uverse from 3 mbs to 12...att techs laptop and 2 of my friends could hold that speed. however, neither of my dell laptops would break 5. ran drtcp and changed the rwin value to 300000 and done. holds 11.5 all day. thanks you saved me a lot of trouble.
can I use this in windows 7 64 bit?
Definitely improves XP MCE & Pro when set to 65528, not 65535 or greater (default on MCE was ~17500). Packet counts drop to 1/3rd. That's on aDSL connection speeds of 6Mbps - 25Mpbs. Appears to be an effective setting. Makes YouTube 480p run like magic, while my Windows 7 64-bit machine with auto-tune struggles. Weird. lol
