      @viplove,

      sorry you are mistaken.TCP optimizer doesn't detect your connection speed.

      You can drag the slider to select your connection speed and click optimal settings radio button and hit apply button.

      TCP Optimizer shows my current speed as 3Mbps where as it is only 512Kbps, how is it possible? Still I chose to optimize but still my download speed is same as 60-70 Kbps so s/w didn't help a bit
