Today I called up my provider SKY and went through a few routine tests. There was no problem with the line and the speed should be around 9mbps.
When running a broadband speed test we found that the PC was scoring 6.2 while my macbook was scoring 5.6. The advisor suggested taking the ethernet cable out of PC and then running same test again on macbook. The result this time was 7.9mbps. We then ran 'CMD' on my PC system and typed in 'netstat'. The list of active connections should be around 10 the advisor said. My search showed up around 40 mainly google user content? and a lot of 'TIME WAIT' written after them?
The advisor suggested I close these active connections in order to get a faster broadband speed.
I was wondering if anybody could help me on how to close the connections I do not need to have open?
Your help would be much appreciated.
