TCP Optimizer is a free Windows program that provides an intuitive interface for tuning and optimizing your Internet connection. No matter if you are a novice or an advanced user, TCP Optimizer will be useful for you. Apr 22, 2018 If you need help with the program, check the TCP Optimizer documentation, read our broadband tweaking articles, the Optimizer FAQ, and/or visit our Forums. The program can be freely (re)distributed, as long as you give us proper credit as the author, and it is not sold for profit.
Update: Tried this on Windows 7, there are other options, have added those settings to the bottom of this post. It has been a while since I posted info on TCP Optimizer to get rid of lag and increase throughput. It helps improve network performance as much today in Windows 8.1 as it did for WIndows XP when I first used it. I posted this in another thread today, and I thought it would help out more people if it was a top level post.
To use TCP Optimizer, download and right click to start as Administrator - you are changing system settings so you need to have Administrator privileges Select the network adapter you use most / now in the adapter drop down. Then Click 'Modify All Network Adapters'. Click the Optimal settings Radio button below, and drag the Connection Speed Slider to match your download speed - that slider setting is used to compute a number of Optimal settings - I usually bump it up a bit past my actual speed - it seems to help a bit - I have 57mbps measured, but set the slider to 65mbps.
General Settings - Windows 8.1 Now, click on the Advanced tab, Click on the Custom Radio button, and set the Gaming Tweaks as shown, 1/1/0 Advanced Settings - Windows 8.1 Now you are ready to Click Apply - and you will see all the settings being changed, their old values, default values, and new values - along with their path in the Windows Registry. You might want to expand that dialog, and use the Windows Snipping Tool to take a screen shot of that dialog so you can read up on the values changed. Then you will be asked to reboot, most changes require a reboot to take effect. You should now have better throughput, and less lag TCP Optimizer Site Current direct Download: Documentation: Related Articles TCP Optimizer FAQ SpeedGuide Forums: Update: Windows 7 has different tunings available, here are my current testing settings.

Have a question for you: My son has started experiencing lag/ FPS drops (from stable 60 to 30-35), especially in heavy fighting situations, while playing League of Legends. Nothing has changed in his setup except from installing a patch from LoL. Initially we thought this was the issue but his mates have all installed the same patch and are not experiencing the lag/drop in FPS and they are all using Win7 as OS. A easy way to test if TCP optimizer is 'helping' is of course to install and use your setup. My question is, if TCP optimizer doesnt improve anything, is there any harm in leaving the new settings created by TCP? I know I could read some of the info in the links you provided - but damn, thats a lot of reading. So thought I would try the easy way out and just ask you.

So thought I would try the easy way out and just ask you Yup, it's alot of reading, and that's why I posted the how to to show how simple it really is Yes, the settings can be left enabled, even if they don't seem to help with the specific problem. That kind of fps drop is likely not network related, unless there is stuttering/lag that contributes to the drop. Does offline play in that or other games show the same drop? It looks like there are lots of people in the same boat, consistantly, over several years: This one looks promising: Perhaps keep a copy of the.cfg when you get it set for good performance, in case another update takes out your tweaks or makes changes that reduce performance. And, see if you can get a copy of the.cfg from one of his friends that is getting the best performance.
Let us know how it works out. Imesh Com. #hmscott, many thanks for the feedback. Nice to know the new settings only have benificial effects, even if they dont help in this specific situation.
No, there are no drops/lag in other games e.g. Diablo III so gather it is a LoL issue and yeah, have read about alot of other people complaining and tried several of their suggestions without any luck - firewall setups, priority setting and so on. Believe it is a LoL issue, just strange it doesnt happen to all but guess when enough people start complaining LoL will look into the issue. Meantime, will study the link you suggested as promising and get back if it solved the issue. Again, thanks a bunch for your feedback. Some people youtubers set maxConnectionsPerServer 20 maxConnectionsPer1_0Server 20.
Is there any difference between 10 or 20? Or can i set it to 20? Candy_man711, maxConnectionsPerServer is for IE only. I usually bump it up too.
You can bump it up to 50 if you like and test that out too. More servers let you keep more connections open, so you don't have to make / lose connections if you really have that many connections open. I have lots of tabs / windows open when working, so I completely removed the limits for myself in Firefox with these settings set as a Custom configuration in using the FasterFox Lite extension Those are really high numbers, but work fine for me Here are the rest of my settings in FasterFox lite, likely there is a bad setting among them, if anyone catches one - or has a better setting, please let me know.
Because I open / keep open lots of tabs and windows in Firefox, I also use MemoryFox to keep the memory usage down.
