Increasing Connection Speed (Win XP pro)

Some of us may find that after the installation of windows XP, the internet connection gets slower. A possible reason for this is the QoS (Quality of Service) installed. This service reserves 20% of the bandwidth for itself, even with QoS disabled. In order to remove this reserved quota, you will have to have sure you are logged as Administrator. Go to Start>Run and type ‘gpedit.msc’ .Expand the ‘locan computer policy’ branch, the ‘administrative templates’ branch, and the ‘network’ branch. Highlight the ‘Qos Packet Scheduler’ in the left window. In the right window, double-click the ‘limit reserveable bandwidth’ setting. Then on the settings tab, check ‘enabled’ and change the ‘Bandwidth limit %’ to read 0.

You should notice an immediate boost in your internet connection speed.
