Editors' Review

+

This well-designed program tests and improves your Internet connection speed, but it needs an experienced operator.

SG TCP Optimizer's compact, tabbed interface logically presents all settings and tests. We found SG TCP Optimizer efficient from the moment it quickly opened. The six tabs presented general and advanced settings, a tool to discover your system's largest possible nonfragmented packet, a calculator to figure your RWIN value, a latency test, and a quick Windows Registry editor. If you have no idea what those settings do, this program isn't for you. If you do have some experience, a short tutorial helps you quickly discover and enter the proper Registry settings to improve connection speed.

Settings are easily saved in backup files, making it easy to try different settings and revert if you accidentally slow connection speed. The help file gives basic information, although it's nothing a system administrator doesn't know.

Novices, on the other hand, shouldn't bother with this application. Its many settings, though easily changed, could cause serious system slowdowns if improperly altered. System administrators and advanced users will love this freeware's small size, powerful functions, and helpful tests.

"My internet connection was already optimized in WinXP."

January 05, 2012  |  By The_Vanguardian

 |  Version: SG TCP Optimizer 3.0.8

Pros

An extremely small package for the punch it can deliver.

Cons

None at all

Summary

My connection speed is an old low speed DSL no longer offered by Qwest or CenturyLink, 256Kb/s. All the settings were already optimized or wouldn't make a significant difference.

"Absolutely Essential"

November 01, 2011  |  By skycatcher

2011-11-01 06:12:39  |  By skycatcher

 |  Version: SG TCP Optimizer 3.0.8

Pros

Many people complain about Slow Internet but never realise that they need to set-up their PC to receive and send at higher speed as well.

Cons

Could do with a in-depth instruction manual for people who don't understand TCP/IP etc.

"Fantastic piece of software!!"

October 14, 2011  |  By Lola_Sapphire

2011-10-14 06:53:30  |  By Lola_Sapphire

 |  Version: SG TCP Optimizer 3.0.8

Pros

4 x Broadband speed I was getting.

Cons

It has a bit of an advanced technical UI, so if you don't know what your doing, (like me) it could be easy to do something wrong. However, I only ticked the "Optimal" button, and used the slider to say what my Mbps should be, and that was all, it worked an absolute treat, all I seem to do is speed tests.

Summary

A MUST HAVE DOWNLOAD FOR FASTER BROADBAND SPEEDS, A******************
Thanks CNET, keep up the good work.

"instant results with 'optimize' setting, 4X faster,easy"

August 29, 2011  |  By wncapt2007

2011-08-29 02:08:51  |  By wncapt2007

 |  Version: SG TCP Optimizer 3.0.7

Pros

easy (really, even a novice can do this (ie my parents)
fast results (one click did the trick amazingly)
tiny program size (.5MB) but powerful capability
good for geek or novice bc there are really advanced options or the simple one click.

Cons

watch extract location its portable

Summary

don't know most of what the program can do so i just hit optimize in settings and boom 4X as fast internet speed when i do the same tests (cnet bandwidth meter) that i did before i installed this a few minutes before. ATT Uverse 12mbps is what i'm paying for and i was only getting 3mbps since i signed up, but after a few seconds using this simple program, i average 12mbps now with the test. it's nice to see actual results. i don't see how i can milk anymore out of my speed seeing that i'm at my limit with AT&T. And i don't see a point in having something faster because i bet my computer isn't fast enough to load the graphics to keep up with higher speeds anyway even though i have a ip4 processor and 3.25GB RAM.

"Not For Novices"

June 22, 2011  |  By gettyohfive

2011-06-22 09:59:44  |  By gettyohfive

 |  Version: SG TCP Optimizer 3.0.5

Pros

Freeware and definitely designed for experts only.

Cons

Download speed actually dropped after "optimizing". Can't figure out how to restore backup. The potential for disaster is great. Experienced two bsods while carrying out system restore and computer won't start the first time it restarted.

Summary

No definitive evidence any of the tweaks help to improve speeds. No advice on the downside risks to "tcp optimizing". Non-experts should stay on the straight and narrow, and avoid this product.

 |  Version: SG TCP Optimizer 3.0.5

Pros

Small and easy. Set it and forget it. I simply set the slide bar to my connection speed, chose "optimum", then let it reboot. A noticable improvement.

None, thankyou.
