In my attempts to make a remote controlling a Windows 7 x64 machine perform better, it appears that I made things MUCH worse. Problem is, I undid all the changes I had made and the computer still isn't working correctly.
I was using the NetSh command and turning off things like autotuning, and heuristics but things just seems to get worse. Now, everything appears to be set back to what's normal (comparing it to another Windows 7 x64 setup) but it's still performing poorly.
Here's what I'm seeing: 1. Logging in with my domain creds takes a log time. The log in is successful and I'm about to browse around the network, but any attempt to open a large file will fail. 2. MSN live logs in, then the connection is lost. I can reconnect, but it will disconnect again in 10 seconds or so. 3. Most web sites fail to completely load, it's like I get the first few k of data but then everything else fails. 4. a Ping -t www.google.com returns no lost packets and good performance 5. other computers on the network (that I didn't screw up) have no connection problem 6. Outlook is UNABLE to completely download my POP3. it says things like '21.5k of 48k' then timesout.
To my thinking, all this looks like I screwed up the autotuning so back that it's only getting the first 20k of data then gets confused.
I have no idea what to try next save maybe going to a restore point.
Any advice would be great.
