A Genetic Algorithm (ga) is used to optimise the parameters for a sequence of packets sent over the Internet. Only the parameters that a client machine can change are used and the fitness is based on the delay time returned by the Traceroute program. The ga performance is compared to a fixed packet size with no priority used to assess the status of the network. The ga generally performed to the same level as the control settings but in some cases significant improvements were made.
