Increase broadband speed
This tip is for Broadband connections, though it might even work for dial-ups. First, make sure you are logged on as ‘Administrator’. Then, click on ‘Start/Run’, and type ‘gpedit.msc’. Expand the ‘Local Computer Policy’ branch. Now, expand the ‘Administrative Templates’ branch, and the ‘Network Branch’. Highlight the ‘Qos Packet Scheduler’ in the left window. In the setting tab, check the ‘Enabled’ item. Where it says ‘Bandwidth limit %’ change it to 0 using the scroll bars or the keyboard. The effect in instant on some systems, while some may need to re-boot. Programs can request up to 20% of the bandwidth to be reserved for them, even with the Qos (Quality of Service) disabled.
