cFos Broadband Connect is a high-performance Dial-Up driver for Internet Access with high bandwidth. While the driver shipped with Windows can only transfer up to 4.5 Mbyte/s (= 36 Mbit/s), cFos Broadband Connect sends with 50 Mbyte/s (= 400 Mbit/s).
Tested with Gigabit LAN, Pentium 4 (3GHz).
cFos Broadband Connect is designed for maximum throughput under minimum CPU load. This leaves your CPU power to the actual Internet applications, like media players, etc. At full speed cFos Broadband Connect needs only 3% CPU time.
cFos Broadband Connect supports all important PPPoE parameters. These can easily be configured with the phone number used for the Dial-Up connection. With Auto-Detect cFos Broadband Connect finds all Internet access points connected to your system.
cFos Broadband Connect can also accept incoming calls. Thereby you can setup your own PPPoE server. This also allows your own speed tests with Gigabit Ethernet cards.
cFos Broadband Connect allows multiple PPPoE sessions simultaneously. You can use any number of incoming and outgoing sessions. With the Service-Name' and 'AC-Name' parameters you can restrict connections to certain services or access points.
cFos Broadband Connect supports NDIS 6 under Vista / Windows 7, thereby providing even more network performance.
cFos Broadband Connect and cFosSpeed: A perfect team. High-performance data transfer plus Traffic Shaping, i.e. maximum bandwidth and minimal Ping.
cFos Broadband Connect can only be used, if your computer uses a dial-up PPPoE connection to connect to the Internet. (NOT, if you use a router that realizes this connection (!!) In this case you should use cFosSpeed). As High-Performance dial-up the usage is especially reasonable with bandwidths above 4,5 Mbyte/s (= 36 Mbit/s). Compared to cFos/Professional, cFos Broadband connect has the advantage off using less CPU.
