Increasing Internet Speed

Most of us are not on broadband for internet services, even if we are, sometime the speed is excruciatingly slow. It sometimes happens that its difficult to do something one want to with this low speed. The reason be Microsoft reserves 20% of your available bandwidth for its own purposes (suspect for updates and interrogating your machine etc). Here’s how to get it back:

Click Start / Run
Type: gpedit.msc
This opens the group policy editor. Then go to:

Local Computer Policy / Computer Configuration / Administrative Templates / Network / QOS Packet Scheduler / Limit Reservable Bandwidth

Double click on Limit Reservable bandwidth. It will say it is not configured

Now click on ENABLE reservable bandwidth, then set it to ZERO. This will allow the system to reserve nothing, rather than the default 20%.

This will increase your surfing, downloading, uploading speed.. Hope this helps. Enjoy !!!
