How to increase your internet connection speed

If you have Windows XP, try this. Everyone that has tried it says it works, tell us if it works too. You should be logged as Administrator (not even accounts with administrator privileges).

1. Start – Run – type gpedit.msc.

2. Expand the Local Computer Policy / Administrative Templates / Network Branch.
3. Highlight the QoS Packet Scheduler in left panel.
4. In right panel double click the Limit reservable bandwidth setting.

5. On setting tab check the Enabled item.
6. Where it says Bandwidth limit % change it to read 0.

The problem is, XP seems to want to reserve 20% of the bandwidth for itself. Even with QoS disabled, even when this item is disabled. So why not use it to your advantage.

To demonstrate the problem with this on stand alone machines start up a big download from a server with an FTP client. Try to find a server that doesn’t max out your bandwidth. In this case you want a slow to medium speed server to demonstrate this. Let it run for a couple of minutes to get stable. The start up another download from the same server with another instance of your FTP client. You will notice that the available bandwidth is now being fought over and one of the clients download will be very slow or both will slow down when they should both be using the available bandwidth. Using this “tweak” both clients will have a fair share of the bandwidth and will not fight over the bandwidth. Try it and tell us if this works.

    look guys,

    GPRS has a speed limitation, so no one note it: no one or any software can make speedy under the GPRS network and the limitation might be 48kbps, lets dance with the fools.

    Hi, terrific web page you’ve place together below. I completely enjoyed scanning this article. I noticed it tonight and quickly found that it was extremely worthwhile, so it motivated me to give a reply. I believe several will most likely have the very same view in reference to this theme. So, I’ll return quickly when I make additional time to view a lot more. That is strange, but I was just calling my sister regarding this problem, so this info was well time. I’m pumped I stumbled across this page, it made my day. I will bookmark this internet site and research with the feed in addition. Many thanks and see you later.
