    "Get a faster internet connection with CableNut - it really works!"

    March 20, 2006  |   By webcruizer

    Version: CableNut 4.08

    Pros

    Even pc pros who know their way around the Windows registry can't possibly know each single setting best suiting their OS and connection type. The guys of CableNut have been around for quite a few years now, experimenting with different values to let everyone get the best out of his connection, be it dial up, cable, T1 and now even satellite. No messin' with the registry, CableNut just applies the best proven settings and you're done. And it does it for free - respect, guys and my sincere thanks for such a proggy...please keep up the good work!

    "Cablenut delivers exactly what it promises"

    February 15, 2006  |   By L5ANDSTAR

    Version: CableNut 4.08

    Pros

    This program kicks a##!! Im running xp with 5meg cable and I watched a Bittorrent d/l jump from 72 kbs to 107 kbs immediately. almost scary !! I have never written a review before, but this program so impressed me I had to.

    Cons

    At first a little confusing because xp is grouped with windows 2k when setting it up.

    "Amazing"

    February 7, 2006  |   By Toonabuse

    Version: CableNut 4.08

    Pros

    I was dubious after reading the negative comments on this site - but it's entirely reversible (being as you can back up your settings on the program).

    So - I tested my speed before - a good DSL connection of around 2.6

    I struggled a little with the interface - but this DOES SUPPORT XP!!! I use XP pro and this is fine. There are updates available on Cablenut's home page.

    My speed is around 5.5

    That is truly nuts

    Cons

    Can be a little difficult to read at the start - REMEMBER TO FOLLOW THE TEXT IN THE DOWNLADED DOCUMENT.

    "You will not find a more usefull freeware product....ANYWHERE!"

    February 6, 2006  |   By FREEWAREBANDIT

    Version: CableNut 4.08

    Pros

    I could write PAGES about how usefull Cablenut is. I COULD tell all about how simple it is to install and use. But I'm not going to. Instead, let me give you the short and sweet of it.

    Before: 2.8 MB/s connection speed, 168 KB/s download speed....

    After: 6.5 MB/s connection speed, 740 KB/s download speed....

    Need I say more!?!

    (tested on: Dell Optiplex GX1, 550 mhz PIII, Windows98, ethernet connected to cable modem)

    Cons

    [see above]

    "Simple and Effective"

    February 3, 2006  |   By jwbecotte

    Version: CableNut 4.08

    Pros

    It takes two minutes to set up and 30 seconds to undo (although I found no reason to). I now have a cable connection that runs at 4mb/sec (T1 speed!).

    Cons

    Check out the Read Me first as the program does not explain its choice of settings via its interface. A very small inconvenience considering the price - FREE!

    "It works"

    January 19, 2006  |   By CrashNburnD89

    Version: CableNut 4.08

    Pros

    It does improve the speed of your internet connection. Maybe not extremely fast but it does improve the speed

    Cons

    Hard to understand and use for people who are not familiar with the software...

    "Excellent piece of software."

    January 10, 2006  |   By rmm969

    Version: CableNut 4.08

    Pros

    No non-sense freeware that does the job. I'm sorry that I personally have to conclude that the guys who rated the product very low and are even warning others not to download and install the product and instead use another product, either have a different agenda or simply do not know what they are doing!

    Cons

    Not for people who do not know what tweaking is all about!!!
