      Re: Slow page loading times

      For those who are uneasy with installed a program the full tweaks can be found here.



      This really does work.

      Firefox

      Pipelining requests

      This setting is equivalent to the IE tweak above. It allows for more simultaneous connections to web servers. Note that the HTTP specs suggest for 4 concurrent connections. Setting this value to 10 allows for more web page components being downloaded at the same time, noticeably improving browsing. To appy the tweak, follow the simple instructions below:

      1. In the address bar, type: about:config
      2. Locate and change the following values (by double-clicking on them):
      network.http.max-connections = 24 (default is 24)
      network.http.max-connections-per-server = 10 (default is 8)
      network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy = 8 (default is 4)
      network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server = 4 (default is 2)
      network.http.pipelining = true (default is false)
      network.http.pipelining.maxrequests = 10 ( default is 4)
      network.http.proxy.pipelining = true (default is false)


      ^^ they can cause images not to be loaded may be worth just setting it to 10 and not touching the rest. (in bold that is).

      3. Optionally, you can also tweak the following settings:
      content.notify.backoffcount = 5
      ui.submenuDelay = 0

      Note: Setting the number of connections per server to a much higher number (over ~10) can cause web servers to drop some requests, resulting in incomplete pages, increased retransmissions, etc., so it is not recommended.



      Reduce Initial Page Delay

      By default, Firefox waits 0.25 seconds (250ms) before beginning to draw web pages. To reduce this initial delay, do the following:

      1. In the browser address bar, type: about:config
      2. Anywhere in the browser window, right-click and create: NEW > String
      3. Name the string: nglayout.initialpaint.delay (no spaces) and set its value to 0 (or something sensible, in milliseconds).

      Note: This setting is not present by default.

      Re: Slow page loading times

      Painfully slow http speeds, everything else is fine including FTP and Usenet. Getting good constant download speeds of over 8Mbps. http is flakier than a cadbury's flake right now and has been for days.

      Re: Slow page loading times

      Only been with Sky BB a month and its been fine speed and connection wise up until Saturday (08/03/08). Since then, pages are very slow or only partly load, download and upload speeds have halved what they were to.

      Was thinking it could be DNS but havent tried changing this yet. Pity I cant do it at router level with the 934G though

      Re: Slow page loading times

      I changed to OpenDNS yesterday as suggested, but that hasn't solved the problem. In fact this page stopped loading half way through just now. What else could it be connection wise that would cause such horrendous http service, yet have everything else working fine?

      Acht! Back to the drawing board the Luffer

      My exchange seems fine for capacity, internal wiring and filters checked and ok. Only thing I havent tried yet is good old "repair method number 1" but it a bit extreme so used the "Contact Us" page on Sky site instead

      Been with sky for over a month or so now, left from Orange to come here, started off really well but at times it is painfully slow to load up pages, touch wood at least it's still running unlike Orange who were constantly down!

      What's "repair method 1" and why is it extreme? Should that mean something? Do you mean the "contact us" page on the Sky broadband site? So I need to contact Sky Customer Service.....?

      I had Mossywell's Bounce Sky Router app running tonight, it's been rebooting the router on a constant cycle. Every time it comes up again, the http requests time-out so it reboots the router again. That's since about 7pm, just a non-stop reboot cycle! I think it's got a lot worse than it was. It's so frustrating because things have been absolutely fantastic since I joined back it May. I've had to post this in the few seconds of slow uptime I get between reboots!

      BTW: How do you know your exchange is fine for capacity?
