tcp organizerThe TCP Optimizer is a free, easy Windows program that provides an intuitive interface for tuning and optimizing your Internet connection. There is no installation required, just download and run. The program can aid both the novice and the advanced user in tweaking related TCP/IP parameters in the Windows Registry, making it easy to tune your system to the type of Internet connection used. The tool uses advanced algorithms, and the bandwidth*delay product to find the best TCP Window for your specific connection speed. It provides for easy tuning of all related TCP/IP parameters, such as MTU, RWIN, and even advanced ones like QoS and ToS/Diffserv prioritization. The program works with all current versions of Windows, and includes additional tools, such as testing average latency over multiple hosts, and finding the largest possible packet size (MTU).

If you don’t already know, TCP connections are how you connect to the internet or your network. By optimizing your connection you will get the best speeds you can from your hardware.

Most people don’t know what the heck MTU’s and QoS are. Hell it took me a MCSE to really understand networking but now you can optimize your connections with a simple piece of freeware. The author says it is meant for a broadband connection but it will also work on anything from a dial-up 56k modem to full on Gigabit.

The TCP Optimizer is targeted towards broadband internet connections, however it can be helpful with tuning any internet connection type, from dialup to Gigabit+
