Open the Dial-up Networking control panel icon and
choose the i3web icon and right mouse-click it to open up a pop-up
menu. Choose the Propertiesoption from the menu.
In the properties window, you will find several settings that can impact
the length of time and sucess rate for your Internet connections. These
settings also affect the manner in which you transfer data over the Internet.
As background, all of your traffic through i3web is done with TCP/IP
or (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol or just IP, for short).
Any other protocol, most likely, is wasted effort.
Microsoft settings now begin by activating many possible protocols, including
ones that are not required for your i3web session. This slows everything
Under the Networking tab:
The Dialup Server Type is PPP: Internet, Windows 2000/NT, Windows ME
For your protocol settings:
Make sure that TCP/IP is the only protocol that should
be checked. No not check NetBEUI or IPX/SPX.
Finally, it is possible that you may need to set the TCP/IP settings
for this particular connection. Make sure the following are checked:
- 1. Server Assigned IP addresses
- 2. Server Assigned Name Server Addresses
- 3. IP Header Compression
- 4. Default Gateway
At this point, remember to use the OK button to exit these screens,
otherwise, if you were to just "X out," you will not save any changes.
These settings should improve your connection speed and improve delays
in the transfer rate of your Internet activity.
