internet sharing with SyGate
dongta77 Aug-27-00 05:06 AM
I have installed SyGate 3.11. Everything look fine, Both computer can use internet at the same time. However, the connection is so slowwww.. I'm only running 1 computer (server) and it's so slow about 1kbyte/s in 56k modem!! Before install SyGate I was using ICS in Win98SE, it was good. Speed for the server was about 3.5kbyte/s and client was 2.8kbyte/s... what should I do with SyGate. I thought it's suppose to be better than ICS in Win98SE!! please help.. thanks

SyGate is better than ICS. Did you uninstall ICS before you installed SyGate? Larry

yes, i did. I uninstalled ICS before install Sygate, i still got the same result, then I removed all protocols and reinstall them. Then I turned off the client and connect without Sygate or ICS: the speed was 3.5kbyte/s (which is good) then I install SyGate on both server and client. This time the speed is drop down to 0.8kbyte/s ???
So i thought I may have miss some setting in SyGate..help

I need more information. What are your network settings in the Control Panel, Network? The more info you send the better I'll be able to help. Larry

The one setting in the Control Panel ->Network are: TCP/IP , NetBEUI,file and printer sharing, Dial up network, Linksys network card and client for Ms network.
All the protocols are bound to both Dial up and my NIC.

Please provide all of your setting and in particular all of your TCP/IP parameters. I can't fix something I can't "see." Larry

here is the network config

- Client for MS network

- IPX/SPX -> Dial up
- IPX/SPX -> Linksys

- File and printer sharing

TCP/IP -> Dial up with these setting:
- Gateway: nothing
- WINS: disable
- IP address: automatic
- DNS: disable
- NetBIOS: nothing
- Advanced: allow binding to ATM -> value: No
set this protocol to be default checked
- Binding: Client for MS network (checked)
File and Printer sharing (checked)


TCP/IP -> Linksys with these setting
- Gateway: nothing
- WINS: disable
- IP address: 192.168.0.1 and 255.255.255.0
- DNS: disable
- NetBIOS: nothing
- Advanced: allow binding to ATM -> value: No
set this protocol to be default unchecked

I also tried to remove IPX/SPX, and Client for Netware but it did not help...

Get rid of the client for Netware. Get rid of IPX/SPX unless you need the protocol for a game, etc. or Novel server. NetBEUI does not have to be bound to the dial-up; delete it there. Let’s make it simpler… Please disconnect two of the clients and send me the parameters for the remaining one. Larry

What are you connecting to to measure this speed and where do you see it? Larry

I used Getright to download a file (~5Mbyte) for testing, it gave me the speed of 1.0kbyte/s. I tried Window Commander, log into diffrent ftp(s), gave me the same result. However, I checked the status in SyGate server the speed was about 3->4kbyte/s. ??

Using your browser, please go to http://www.download.com three times over the next two days and tell me how fast your browser says the download went. Larry

I don't often give up, but I believe this problem will have to go to Sybergen (http://www.sybergen.com/support/sgreq_form.htm). E-Mail them with the Troubleshooting Log. If you have trouble getting a response let me know and I will prod them. Larry
