Boost your internet bandwith....

Over at Fluxiontech.com (Link) there's an excellent post on tweaking Windows to get the most out of your internet connection....
First off is tweaking for XP...

The following tweak applies only to Windows XP Professional edition.

The default system behavior is that all 100% bandwidth is available, however, if there is a running application that indicates to the OS it needs to send high priority/real time data, then as long as it has the socket open, Windows XP will restrict “best effort” traffic to 80% of the bandwidth so that high priority traffic can be accommodated. Basically, applications can make this request to the operating system for QoS support using the QoS application programming interfaces (APIs) in Windows and this only applies if a specific app is requesting QoS.


There are also tweaks for removing the limits on TCP connection attempts & some recommended settings for Windows 2000 / XP... Very good read ... These are not tweaks for amatuers ... You should probably know a little about what you're doing before you start getting into this buisness...
