HI friendz Is your slow internet speed is bugging you? well then i can help you little bit.
i found this trick while messing up with group policy editor .
That ...Microsoft reserves 20% of your available bandwidth for their own purposes like Windows Updates and interrogating your PC etc. same issue is with all microsft OS by default.
You can get it back:
Click Start then Run and type "gpedit.msc" without quotes.
This opens the group policy editor.
Then go to:Local Computer Policythen Computer Configurationthen
then Network then QOS Packet Scheduler
and then to Limit Reservable Bandwidth.
Double click on Limit Reservable bandwidth.
It will say it is not configured, but the truth is under the 'Explain' tab i.e."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 the trick is to ENABLE reservable bandwidth, then set it to ZERO. This will allow the system to reserve nothing, rather than the default 20%.
It works on Win 2000 as well.How did you like it.please comment.
Note:This trick works only for windows xp sp2 professional and windows 2000 professional.It does not work on windows xp sp2 home edition As thers no way to edit group policy editor .....
