Tweak it to opimize your Internet Connection
This video will show you how to speed up your internet connection by changing the reservable bandwidth in Windows. Please check that you have a suitable version of Windows. You can check this by reading the first part underneath the video.
Note that this setting can be changed in all versions of windows apart from:
-XP Home Edition
-Vista Home Basic and Home Premium versions
-Windows 7 Home Premium
-Any versions of Windows that were released before XP.
If you do not have 'Run...' in your start menu, you can press 'windows key' + 'R' on your keyboard.
This must be typed into the run command in Windows: gpedit.msc
Hit enter to run the command. Note that if you receive an error message it is most likely to be because you have either misspelt the command or your operating system cannot run gpedit.msc. Once the window has opened, left-click 'Administrative Templates', double-click 'Network' and then double-click 'QoS Packet Scheduler'. Finally, double-click 'Limit reservable bandwidth'. By default, the value will be 'Not Configured'. Change this to 'Enabled' but putting a dot in the radio button beside it. You will then see that the value is set to 20% by default. Change this value to 0 (by typing it or using the arrows beside the text field) and then press 'Apply' followed by 'OK'. By changing this setting, we have made Windows reserve no bandwidth so that your internet connection is not limited whatsoever.
Since I have changed this setting in Windows, I have noticed a significant increase in the speed of my internet connection.
