    Hello, a friend of mine made a gift for me - CFosSpeed
    http://www.cfos.de/speed/cfosspeed_e.htm
    as he knows how poor my adsl connection is. he said that program could really made my connection and also download speed more stable.

    I have just installed it , i like the interface, but i need some tips from people who use it. cos i have read that cFosSpeed needs several days to test my connection and then get to work,
    also after installation i noticed that a lot of websites simply dont open, i went to cFosSpeed setup and turned off Traffic Shaping - it helped. So is Traffic Shaping the main feature of cFosSpeed and would turning it Off affect cFosSpeed work? or should i simply wait for several days with Traffic Shaping On and after that period of tune-up websites will open again correctly and more faster?

    I have it, it cost me $12 like 2 years ago. Works really well. I do not know why traffic shaping would stop websites from working, that is supposed to speed it up with a better QoS than Windows. Try calibrating line and re-detecting routes. Also, set your web browser to the highest priority.

    after some time websites stoped opening again. then i turned off Traffic shaping again - and ok - they are opening. i dunno why there is such problem. i suppose its cos of my provider or something else.
