How To Increase Internet Speed in Windows

Not many people know that they are not able to harness the full power of their internet bandwidth. Microsoft reserves 20% of your available bandwidth for their own purposes like updating, error reporting etc..
Dont worry, you can have it all back , just follow the following steps:
1> Click " Start ".
2> Click " Run ".

3> In the "Run" window type " gpedit.msc " without the quotes, it opens the group policy editor.

4> Click " Local Computer Policy ".
5> Double Click " Computer Configuration ".
6> Double Click "Administrative Templates ".
7> Double Click " Network ".
8> Double Click "QOS Packet Scheduler ".

9> Double Click " Limit Reservable Bandwidth ".

Now, double click on the " reservable bandwidth " and it will say that it is not configured, but the whole truth is under the "Explain Tab" ie "By default, the Packet Scheduler limits the system to 20 percent of the bandwidth of a connection, but you can use this setting to override the default."
So what you have to do is enable reservable bandwidth and set it to ZERO.

10> Click " OK "
Now your system will reserve 0% for background procedures so your speed should have increased by 20%.

Note: This tweak works only for windows xp sp2 professional and windows 2000 professional.It does not work on windows xp sp2 home edition.
