Discussion in 'Moto Q Hacks' started by dehx, Aug 12, 2007.
sometimes i get that message before the speed test page.
But then the speed test page comes up.
HUH???? well nothing happens after that msg???
no idea , mine never did that. how about security certificate ? ( or security manager )
After that java message thing it goes right to the speed test.
Maybe someone knows of a different speed test?
wanted to know before i attempted this hack and mess up my q, is having java on the phone necessary in order to do this speed hack? and is the hack relatively easy to do?
Couple of things...
First I haven't been able to load PHMRegEdit onto my Q yet because the msi file errors with "There is no application associated with 'PHMRegEdit'. Run the application first and then open this file inside the application." And I have no idea which cab file to use.
Second is that while using IE straight on the Q, I get around 762 kbps, but the pages load pretty slow...however when I tether my laptop to the Q DslReports/mspeed tells me that I'm only at 440 kbps, but the pages load lightning quick...Something to do with my laptops specs I presume. DualCore, 2Gigs...so why the cruddy kbps reported from DSLReports/mspeed?
Actually one more thing, anyone certain that increasing this registry entry isn't harmful to the cpu?
I found out which cab file from this thread. I'll try it out/ :wink:
Before any registry hacks, my speed test results are:
8.381s d/l time
Wait I was connected to my laptop via active sync, so that result was through my home wireless network. I didn't know that we could do that on the Q????
Actual EDVO test results:
15.026s d/l time
That's not bad
After changing registry to "50" connections, here are my results:
test 2 was
128 kbit/sec very slow loading
going back to default settings of 4 connections the results are:
My results clearly tell me to leave the default settings.
I have tinkered with this for a bit now and found almost no differences at all...50, 150, 20, 4, no matter
I'll be trying it out from time to time to see if there really is actuallly a difference for me.:wink:
Just a question that has occured as I read and re-read this thread...it stands to reason that if everyone does A, they will get B; if they all do C...you get the idea. So why is there such disparity in the ability to download and in test results?
For example, using the aforementioned test site I get varying results even when testing back-to-back; therefore I must conclude that either my Q is squirrely (not likely), the airwaves are busy (no knowledge or experience to verify this) or (my best guess) perhaps I need to take an average of several tests taken several times over several days, which I have done. :long-winded answer:
For example, when you are presented with .cab files on a website that can be downloaded directly into your Q device, why, oh why introduce a desktop computer into the equation? I am seriously interested in an answer to this question. Please understand that I am not knocking anyone or their results, or their decisions; just questioning the apparent disparities.
This hack works...all the hacks posted here at EQ have worked for me and my gray Sprint Q (MOL 2). You see, this is all I have, all I use. Someone please help me to understand.
Depending on how strong the EVDO coverage is. I am guessing...i know at home and the general area i live in is not as good as it was when i first tried this hack. I rembered a couple days ago that i updated with *228. I still have great speed most every where but my home area.
Could be wrong but its a guess.
It still wont let me check???:frown:
I dont know what to tell u WORD. Ive never had that problem.
did you notice a difference on U.S. cellular?
congrats . good that u figured out
After Internet Settings, I have 2 options...5.0 and Connections?? Help plz!! Which one do I go to?
Under "Connections" there is a list where "MaxConnectionsPerServer" is located. NOT in connections, there is just a list under 5 and Connections.
It may be interesting to note that my US Cellular Q does not have the above key, MaxConnectionsPerServer. That must be a key particular to the Verizon edition of the Q.
EDIT: I was looking inside the Connections key. I just re-read and then looked into the Internet Settings key itself, and now I've founnnd it. Thanks!
