Simple Tips to Boost Internet Speed
In our last article we learnt how to increase the FireFox Browser SpeedÂ by tweaking FireFox Browserâ€™s setting.
Today we are going to see couple of simple tips which will boost your internet speed. Letâ€™s start with the tip nowâ€¦
Boost Internet Speed
Tip 1: Changing reserved bandwidth to 0%
Many of us are aware that Windows XP, 7 etc. reserves 20% of the bandwidth thus reducing the speed a little. So to change the bandwidth usage to 0%, follow the steps mentioned below.
Step 1: Go to Run and Type gpedit.msc (This will give access to Group Policy Editor)
Step 2: Click on Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Network -> QOS Packet Scheduler
Step 3: Open Limit Reservable bandwidth -> Check Enabled -> Change the value of Bandwidth Limit to 0%… Click OK
Thatâ€™s allâ€¦ This tweak will increase the Internet Speed a bit.
Tip 2: Tweaking TCP/IP setting
Step 1: Download TCP Optimizer from this link (speedguide.net/downloads.php)Â (TCP Optimizer is a freeware which helps in adjusting the TCP/IP settings.Â The best thing about this application is that it doesnâ€™t require installation)
Step 2: Run TCP Optimizer and change the connection speed to your actual internet speed. Donâ€™t make any other changes in here.
Step 3: Reboot your system.Â Thatâ€™s all
Now you will find the difference in the Internet Speed, the difference wonâ€™t be very huge but it is good enough to make you smile.
Try it and post in your experience.
