More On ADSL, Speed, P2P

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , — yasi8h @ 5:07 pm


I just wrote something in a reply to one of my friends email that i just received… i think i should post it here cause….. i think its worth to be here 🙂

note 1: you all know about download accelerators 🙂 they make use of your bandwidth and get more downloading speed from normal sites by paralleliy downloading segments of the same file from separate connections… but as far as my experience you can’t get faster download speeds that you get from a well seeded torrent or a well ‘sourced’ file in a p2p network from a normal direct download.

note 2: as u all would have noticed the email address is faked 🙂

peeking at ur blog again..

How on earth did u get such a download speed??

Well its simply choosing the right apps to run at the right time 😉 Usually after 6.00 PM u are having some good bandwidth available to you by the SLT because the load on the network is eased(cause most of the offices stop using adsl….. i guess). But it doesn’t increase your download speed! if you need to download faster, you also need someone to upload to you faster! and thats the trick! most of the sites wont give u much uploading downloading bandwidth when you are downloading a fie off there network/site. but there are some nice peer to peer apps which perform like fire when configured right(and under positive circumstance). so if you want to use your bandwidth to the max. get some nice p2p app and make it download a popular movie(popular in the sense that a lot of people in the p2p network should be having the file so all of them can upload to you, giving you a higher uploading speed and hence improving your downloading speed!).

For a start i recommend you to get BearFlix and start downloading a movie which have a lot of sources(you’ll get it when u start using the app). and just sit and watch. you’ll see wonders with your ADSL connection 🙂 but of course be sure to finish your web browsig and stuff cause once you unleash the beast(with no caps to control it…) it’ll eat all of your B/W…

I have got most of the nice movies, through the networks… but i have a new problem now…. and that is im out of space!!! my 60GB windows partition is filled with files that i’ve downloaded. most of them are not even been opened a single time by me. It seems that downloading and only downloading is entertaining me 🙂 hahaha… much more than the content of the files… 🙂 crazy stuff.

Also can u give me da ADSL ping commands and how to check what my
router is up to??

Mani, so u got a router… cool! wise choice! well you can allways get the basic staticstics of your router by going to its web interface. please refer the documentation that came with it 😉 oh well most of the time thees commands should get you to your router’s interface

http://192.168.1.1
Or
http://10.0.0.1

well, wait… i guess you know all these 🙂 !

so if you want to play around with ya router or ya n/w… try the following commands..

Im assuming that you have not yet found the ‘enlightenment’ and so you should be still using windows… 😉
type these in a command prompt..

tracert www.google.com – basically this will show you the path that your data(packets to be more specific/technical?) is following through. like when you do it for google(www.google.com) it will show the path the packets are taking from your computer to googles server(the one that you’ll be directed to…i guess). so if you do it to some other site, like for example www.yahoo.com. you should see a bit different output(which is the path for yahoo’s server). but of course you’ll notice that there are some similler routers(or simply any device that forwards your packets and do answer ICMP packets…) in every path. and those stuff are the ones which is in your home, and in your ISP’s home and your ISP’s ISP’s home…(well im not too sure about these :-)..

ping www.google.com – this command simply says hello to google and see if he says hello back to you. it says hello many time(4 times by default in windows, ping) and try to determined how busy or how responsive the host is.

So its like that… just google any questions you get. and of cause feel free to ‘discuss’ these stuff with me too cause you know i love these stuff so much. its like ‘tech gossip’ for me!
