HAVE YOU A MISTERY? SOLVED OR NOT?

Post by OPRESION » Fri Jul 09, 2010 1:38 am

YEARS BEFORE TODAY I HAD A CHINESE MOTHERBOARD NEEDING
TO UPDATE THE BIOS. CONSTANTLY I WAS LOOKING FOR THE
FILES IN THE NET BECAUSE THE MOTHERBOARD IT WAS ALREADY
OBSOLETE. SO I DID DECIDE TO BE LOOKING FOR IN CHINESE
SITES FOR SEVERAL WEEKS.

ALWAYS I LIKE TO ENTER IN THE WEB LATE IN THE NIGHT.
LIKE TODAY, I WAS CONNECTED WITH A 56K MODEM BUT ONE
DAY BEING IN THOSE CHINESE SITES MY CONECTION BEGAN
RUNNING LIKE A MISSILE; USUALLY I HAD TO WAIT SEVERAL
SECONDS TO SEE EVERY PAGE.

THAT DAY IN THE NIGHT THE PAGES BEGAN INVADING MY
MONITOR INSTANTLY LIKE A LIGHTNING. IT WAS AMAZING
BUT THAT WAS ONLY FOR A FEW MINUTES, THEN IT DID
RETURN TO THE NORMALITY.

I THOUGHT THAT I WAS DISCOVERED I KIND OF CHINESE
CONECTION TO THE HIGH SPEED IN INTERNET BUT THAT
PHENOMENON NEVER WAS REPEATED.

I WROTE IT IN THE NET BUT NOBODY BELIEVED THAT.
EVERYBODY SAID THAT SIMPLY IT WAS AN HOUR OF VERY
LOW TRAFFIC AND I WAS JUST LUCKY.

THIS IS A VERY VERY LATE ANSWER BUT A WEEK AGO
SUDDENLY THE SOLUTION OF THE MISTERY DID APPEAR
IN MY MIND (I DON'T KNOW WHERE IT DID COME FROM).
THIS IS THE ANSWER AND IT'S VERY SIMPLE:

*** THE MAINTENANCE ***

IN THE LOCAL PROVIDER OF INTERNET THE TECHNICANS
WERE MAKING MAINTENANCE TO THE COMPUTERS. MAYBE
THEY WERE CHANGING MOTHERBOARDS, MEMORIES,
PROCESSORS OR SOMETHING ELSE.

SO, TO EVADE TO DISCONNECT THE LOW SPEED CLIENTS THEY
MADE A DEVIATION CONNECTING THOSE USERS TO THE HIGH
SPEED FOR A SHORT TIME MEANWHILE THEY WERE MAKING
CHANGES TO THE COMPUTERS. THAT'S WHY THE PHENOMENON
NEVER WAS REPEATED BUT FOR MINUTES.

THAT'S SO SIMPLE...
I HAD THAT MISTERY IN MY MIND FOR YEARS.

BYE.

it may not be that big of a discovery but you can track down those direct URL's to the sites you visit then disable redirects in your browser and only allow direct connection to the site.

most web traffic company's route your click through a proxy as you navigate through the proxy they can profile to see what interest group you belong and make offers..

read up on it you can be super fast always...disable proxy and redirects to only allow direct connection.

I AM SURE THAT THAT IT'S NOT A BIG DISCOVERY
BUT IT WAS A REAL SURPRISE FOR ME AT THAT TIME.

YES, BUT IN THAT TIME I DIDN'T DO ANYTHING. I
AM STILL BELIEVING THAT TECHNICANS WERE MAKING
CHANGES TO THE SYSTEMS AND THE COMPUTERS.

ALSO, IN THAT TIME, I THOUGHT THAT THE VELOCITY OF
MY CONECTION IT WAS BIGGER THEN THOSE 56 KB BUT
AFTER THAT I DID REALIZE THAT WAS IMPOSSIBLE BECAUSE
I WAS ONLY USING A 56 KB MODEM BUT WORKING TO THE
TOP AT THAT MOMENT.

OVER HERE, IN MEXICO, USUALLY THE USERS OF PROVIDERS
OF INTERNET SAY THAT THE PROMISED VELOCITY GIVEN BY
THE PROVIDERS IT IS NOT REACHED BY THE USERS. I THINK
THAT A WAY TO REACH THAT, JUST WOULD BE NEEDED TO
GIVE A BIGGER POWER TO THE SERVICE.

a big slowdown for most people is the malicious processes that run on their computers. programs like "adobeARM" which seems to have no job at all but run delay cycles using up resources profile and tell on any text you may copy/paste. making the computer owner hate his "slow junk computer" and buy a new one or buy some new turbo boost software that disables these processes..

try using a performance monitor, try stopping process on a few of the unessential processes. you will see your CPU go from 100%usage to 1-2% in idle and not even hit 45% in game but almost never ping 100%.

don't get me wrong I don't disrespect your opinion on the strange speed up phenomena, I'm just thinking one of those processes might have been stopped by software or maybe you had a direct connection being the cause. as I have done the kind of service maintenance work myself. and though bandwidth throttling and timed connection is possible as far as I know there is no way to throttle past bandwidth of your ISP aside from leaching multiple ISP's/AP's at once..
