ok since not many new topics recently, thought id post somthing.
recently i went to »miranda.ctd.anl.gov:7123
and did a speed test. the test returns a lot of technical stuff, most of which im not clear of. in any case, something caught my eye and im not sure if its anything at all.
------ Web100 Detailed Analysis ------
Link detection algorithm failed due to excessive Round Trip Times.
Link set to Half Duplex mode
Information: throughput is limited by other network traffic.
Good network cable(s) found
Normal duplex operation found.
Web100 reports the Round trip time = 1990.0 msec; the Packet size = 1380 Bytes; and
There were 2 packets retransmitted, 0 duplicate acks received, and 0 SACK blocks received
The connection stalled 1 times due to packet loss
The connection was idle 5.88 seconds (65.33%) of the time
This connection is network limited 99.79% of the time.
Contact your local network administrator to report a network problem
Excessive packet loss is impacting your performance, check the auto-negotiate function on your local PC and network switch
Web100 reports TCP negotiated the optional Performance Settings to:
RFC 2018 Selective Acknowledgment: ON
RFC 896 Nagle Algorithm: OFF
RFC 3168 Explicit Congestion Notification: OFF
RFC 1323 Time Stamping: OFF
RFC 1323 Window Scaling: OFF
This is the info im not sure about:Information: Network Middlebox is modifying MSS variable
Server IP addresses are preserved End-to-End
Information: Network Address Translation (NAT) box is modifying the Client's IP address Server says  but Client says 
then when i click for more info, it says:
CurrentCwnd: 4140CurrentMSS: 1380
---> shouldnt it be 1452
However, when i go to some other sites they report my MSS=1452, weird. Anyone care to do the test and see what it says?
