Question about Palm LifeDrive Mobile Manager Handheld

Blazer Speed

I am currently surfing the net wirelessly from my lifedrive, and was wondering how I could speed up browsing. When I have read a page and want to go back to the previous page, if I click on the green back arrow, Blazer reloads the entire page, making it quite slow to browse all the threads. On my pc, the previous page is stored somewhere in the temporary memory until I clear the cache - usually on exiting my browser. Is the any way that I can get Blazer to do something similar and thus stop uneccessary downloading of a new page every time?

Blazer does have a cache, but I'm not sure exactly how it uses it. I did an experiment in an attempt to find out how much of a page it caches, but I didn't learn a lot. I went to a page, then jumped to another, then turned WiFi off. When I hit the "Back" button, the LifeDrive refused to open the page without me reactivating WiFi. Still, I can tell the cache is working. When I go to a site with lots of graphics, the first page opens kind of slowly. However, when I go to other pages on that site that have the same graphics, pages load more quickly. So, apparently at least some parts of a page go into a cache, but you can't view it entirely from the cache. Also, the delay in opening pages is often not the downloading of a page, but the rendering of it once it is downloaded. The cache can't help you there.

How do I improve my broadband connection or download speed (aka Access Line...


The Access Line or Connection (download) speed is the speed of your Broadband connection between the local telephone exchange and the wireless router. This is the speed that Broadband is able to provide into your home rather than the actual speeds that you experience when using the internet.This download speed is typically twice the speed of your available upload speed.

Be careful all the major ISP's will test your line and come back to you will a max speed of about 3MB (3072 kbps OR 384 kB/sec) and sell you the product on this basis I have never got anywhere near this tested value. If you divide the tested value by 1/3 this would be a more reasonable speed.

For example if your ISP is able to provide you with a 1MB connection your maximum download speed will be 1024 kbps, in reality you will never reach this due to exchange limitations a connection (download) speed of 900 kbps (0.8MB OR 112 Kb/sec) would be more realistic and 350 kbps (0.35MB OR 44 kB/sec ) for uploading.

If you browse outside the peak period your speed will increase. However It will reduce significantly during the peak period from 5pm to 12am. If you want to download large programs or files, try doing this overnight or at a different time of the day.

Clearing your cache won't make you browse faster it is a collection of files which record your activity on the internet. These files are usually stored in your computer's Temporary Internet Files folder.
They can make browsing the web faster, as loading a page you've visited before is quicker if your computer has kept a record of images and other components within the web page. Clearing these files away can free up space on your hard drive and resolve certain problems you may experience while browsing like slow browser speeds !!

Tweaking your TCPIP can help here is a reg tweak that will optimize your registry WRT your TCP parameters; internet caching and simultaneous downloads.

Test your actual connection OR download speed here and e-mail it to yourself you can also set it to create a graph of your download times it will also show you a comparison of you and a typical value from your actual service provider, you will never get any where near this I use Sky Mid at the moment and I max out at on a 1MB line about 900kbps (112kB/sec) they say sky should offer you 2827kbps (354 kB/sec) which would be 80% of a 3MB line.

Smart test based on your connection speed =>
http://testmy.net/dl-96

If you start the automatic test and leave your PC on for 24 hours you will see at what time your connection will max out, the results are stored if you become a regsitered user, this link will test upload and donwload ( this is your line speed) in kbps (kilobits per second)

http://www.testmy.net/tools/test/scheduled_test.php?r_time=1

when finished to you can download the results to a csv (comma separated value) and import into Excel to see a pretty graph if you like.!!!!

N.B.> Make sure you close down VoiPs and Torrents and anything else that will sap you download speed before you do this test also I recommend rebooting your router to gain the optimum results

Hi,

There are couple of troubleshootig steps which needs to be performed inorder to help get a web page load faster.

Go to Tools/options/ and delete the history, cached pages, cookies, password etc. Might want to ignore favourites.

Also type temp in run command line and then delete the files from the folder. This helps to increase the processing speed as well as the browsing speed of the accer.

This works with IE 6/7/8 though.

Thanks

Slow or no wireless speed, connection says excellent


Your router may be toast but here are a couple of things to try:
Please remember, I'm guessing here...

Before restoring to factory defaults, make sure you can get to the config pages using the rj45 (wired) ports. Do a speed test with a wired connection at http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/

1. try removing all security. No WEP or WPK. Also, use no mac address filtering. See if it speeds up. Go back to http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/ and try speed testing the wireless portion of your router..

2. If it has automatic channel selection, this may be acting up. So manually select channels. Then do speed tests at the web site (or any speed test web site of your chosing). You may find a screaming fast channel.

3. If this fails to help, use the reset to factory default button. Try setting up the router with NO security first and do speed tests. Use automatic channel selection first, do speed tests, and if all else fails, you can try manually selecting channels again. If the router works well, you might want to set up security again and retest.

4. If all this fails, buy yourself a new wireless 802.11N - (N1) router. They are screamin' fast and have better range.

What is the maximum speed


The speed of that router is 100 mbps (wired) and 54 mbps (wireless). If you have a 1 mbps line, that router is more than sufficient. Your speed will change simply because someone is using the internet connection. Downloading, uploading, surfing, chatting, listening to internet radio, etc. Make sure no one is on, then test it to see what speed you get. Go to www.speakeasy.net/speedtest and select the server nearest to you. It is a very good speed tester.
Good Luck!

Wireless speed


The answer to this is yes and no.

Wireless speeds are not up to gigabit on any router that I know of. You may be able to have a wired Gigabit connection on a wireless router, but not wireless. But this would not speed up your Internet browsing (wireless or not).

A new router would probably improve your Internet browsing speed, but perhaps not for the reason you may think.

1, Your line speed has probably increased since you purchased your current router and a new router would probably deal with it better.
2, You may be able to put a new wireless card in your PC that would allow you to use G or some of the other faster wireless connection methods.

Ultimately your Internet browsing speed is governed by the line speed, the contention in your area, the general speed of the Internet. Changing your router will just help make your internal network traffic more efficient.

Here is a Good Guide from Microsoft that I would follow BEFORE spending any money.

http://tech.msn.com/howto/articlepcw.aspx?cp-documentid=6555722

Basically what it says is 1, ensure you have a clean connection to the Internet, 2, update all your firmware so that every thing is as good as it can be.

Read the article, do what it says and then consider if you need to upgrade the router. At the end of the day your Internet speed will never be better than the speed that you have paid for. If you pay for 2Mb and http://www.speedtest.net says you are getting 1.9Mb then you are doing well and the best you can improve things is by .1Mb. Maybe you need to get a faster connection.

If you pay for 2Mb and you are only getting 1Mb (and you have done all the recomendations) Maybe you need a new router.

Hope this helps
