I feel so lonley at 500kbps. Pwnage will come when i upgrade to the 10 mb line. Some day in the future.

yeah, you still need to throttle uTorrent's upload to get the maximum download speed, though it's far more effective with cFos, and your pings will be lower. You can uncap the upload when it's not downloading. just use alternate seeding rate to manage that :D

that is correct, because if you are configuring cFosSpeed correctly, uT should be on lowest priority. And that is a good idea, alt seeding rate,I may just borrow that ;)

I read that if i use cfosspeed i should be able to uncap my upload speed in utorrent and still be able to get my maximum download speed. I have tried this and still get the same results as when im not using cfos. If i dont limit my upload my dl goes to shit and even visting web pages slows down noticably. I had it set to have utorrent on lowest priority and traffic shaping on but this program does not seem to make a difference for me.

any help or suggestions appreciated.

thank you

this program is crap

Horrible interace, horrible setup, the wensite is misleading, and worst of all my games won't even CONNECT online with it on.

I could start up Steam but it wouldn't connect, BF2 wouldn't connect, Quake 4 wouldn't connect, COD2 wouldn't connect. Nothing. Had to uninstall it and the reg key it made, then reboot to get everything working again.

Also, it didn't speed up downloads and didn't limit my upload by itself like so many of you say it will.

2 thumbs way dpwn

i posted this in "better settings thread" but looks like it suits here better...

"looks like this program is for the big players

i tried 2 times..both times screwed up my connection even after installing... it seems to "stay" in my computer... my traffic become seriously blocked and i cant get remote connections on my torrent..note that i did not make any change to any settings before this and the only cause can only be cfos speed....i resetted my router settings, on off my windows firewall to "re-off" it(it was off already before i installed cfos speed)

now everything seems to be working again....not going for cfos ever again =[

my connection is 2000/128 btw"

This is Pwnage, the beginner of this crap topic. I used the program and it didnt do anything for my ping times. Ran Utorrent and tryed cs, guess what.... didnt work. All the latencys were above 500.

Did you add uTorrent.exe to the priority list?

You also have to reboot after you install cFosSpeed, and click Continue on the driver installation prompts that Windows gives. Add Steam to the priority list as highest too, if it's not already there. Make sure you do the calibration as the instructions say. :rolleyes:

Check the properties for your Local Area Connection, if you don't see "cFosSpeed protocol for faster Internet connections" in that list, then something went wrong in the installation, and would explain why it's not working.

Windows prompts you to install the drives while you're installing cFos. If you never saw them, or didn't click on them, it may be the reason it's not working, since it REQUIRES for them to be installed to work.

What is steam?

using cfos should i be able to upload at my maximum speed and still be able to dl/surf without interuption?

I did a quick search on firewall in the threadand only found one reference which didn't seem to cover an issue with CFOS. I couldn't be bothered reading 4 pages so I just skim read but I didn't pick up the following info.

** Important **

For CFOS to work correctly it needs to be able to send out it's calibration pings which means that you are going to have to allow your firewall to send these. Without these pings it's a waste of time running CFOSspeed.

**

Go to the CFOS site and read a bit to get the most out of the application. Seems my webpages are more responsive etc with it running on my cable.

Also you can configure it to get better ping time at the expense of bandwidth or attain maximum bandwidth while trying to better your ping times. It's a circuit breaker switch in the priorities config at the top of the page. I missed it completely because it looked so different to the rest of the settings. Stupid gui imho.

I guess if it works for you then great otherwise thems the breaks.

Ok yeah I'm not one of those people who downloads those "Improve download speeds by 500%" programs, but it was suggested to my by someone on a private tracker's forums. This program doesn't claim to increase download speeds under normal operating conditions. It simply helps prioritize packets and bandwidth to applications you specify. Think of it as an automatic netlimiter that helps organize packets to keep SYN/ACK request at highest priority. I can run Utorrent without even capping my bandwidth and get better performance from other applications than I would by setting my upload to 80%. Take a look at these tracerts. I ran them multiple times with similar results each time I enabled/disabled cfosspeed.

As you can clearly see the ping results are MUCH better. No packet loss. DNS resolves names faster, web pages load almost as fast as if I didn't even have torrents running. Ok if you have a fat 2mbps upload pipe then who cares, but at 512kbps upload I'd rather use this than constantly change my upload settings in utorrent so I can actually load webpages. I can upload a file to my FTP server and it automatically allocates bandwidth for it instead of sending the file at like 2-5K/sec or maybe even have the transfer time out. Don't discredit this program, it does things you could never get QoS packet scheduler to do. As to the people who have problems with this program connecting to games, all I can say is it may be interfering with your firewall or other connection related software. I have no problems connecting to BF2 servers.
