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.
The SG TCP Optimizer provides an intuitive interface for tuning and optimizing your Internet connection. The tool helps easily find the best MTU and RWIN values, test latency, and tweak all the significant broadband related registry parameters. The Optimizer supports tuning any Internet connection type, from Dialup, Cable, Satellite, and DSL to commercial-leased lines. It creates automatic backup of all parameters, for easy reversal of the changes as well. Version 2.0.3 is a bug fixing release.
