How to increase your internet speed

By default, most systems have some bandwidth reserved for nothing. You can change this the following way: (Note: this only works in Windows XP Professional)

  1. Open gpedit.msc from the run box in the start menu.
  2. Navigate to: Local Computer Policy > Computer configuration > Administrative templates > Network > QoS Packet Scheduler
  3. Open Limit Reservable Bandwidth
  4. Check the enabled box and change the Bandwidth Limit to 0%.
Depending on your system, this might need a restart to start working.
