sluggish network performance

i reformatted my computer Friday afternoon and used it normally. somehow I managed to use it for 2 days before I noticed that the network was slow.. probably because it was the weekend and I wasn’t really using my computer as much. I thought my router was being lame and I wanted to put DD-WRT on the Linksys WRT54GL anyways so I did.

it was still sluggish and I realized that I forgot to patch TCPIP.SYS to allow more than 10 half-open connections at once.. I just made it 100, lol. I also changed in Firefox network.http.pipelining to true and network.http.pipelining.maxrequests from 4 to 20. now it’s nice and fast again, and not interrupted by some cap on the number of connections.
