I'm over in the ME and in a camp with 300 other people. I don't know who the IT guy is so I'm not sure exactly what type of routers we use, what types of switches we use, etc. What I do know is that we added 40 or so people over the last couple weeks and the internet is slower than molasses. I have a dropbox sync going (yeah, I know I'm not helping with the slow down) and monitor the download rate through the day. It varies between .5kb/s and 10kb/s depending on time of day and how many people are using it.
What I'm wondering is, are there any options I can select from my end that work well with large scale public internet like this? I have the Realtek PCIe lan connection on my laptop. I know basic, and even moderate network setup and have set up home networks and all that. Still, some of these options are unfamiliar to me because I'm not used to messing with them and not sure of what results they cause:
Large send offload
Receive side scaling
I'm going to disable "green ethernet" and all the power saving features but don't know what to do about the above settings or RX/TX levels. If anyone here knows the best way to squeeze out every possible extra .5kb/s out of camp-wide internet, please let me know. Thanks.
