DetectorPro detects another useful tip which will help windows users to increase their internet speed or bandwidth for 20%. If you don’t know, by default, windows use 20% of your bandwidth. Microsoft reserves this 20% for their purposes (suspect for updates, report error or other similar things). With a little modification of specific windows function, you can back this 20% for you own use and increase your internet speed for 20%. This tutorial is updated and graphically explained. Click here for updated tutorial.
Instructions for increasing internet speed for 20%:
- Click: Start–>Run–>type “gpedit.msc” without the ” sign. This will open the group policy editor. Choose from menu: Local Computer Policy -> Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Network -> QOS Packet Scheduler -> Limit Reservable Bandwidth
- Double click on Limit Reservable bandwidth. Windows will say it is not configured, but the real status is shown under the ‘Explain’ tab: “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.”
- Now, just enable reservable bandwidth, then set it to ZERO.
- That’s it!
This modification will not allow to Microsoft to reserve 20% of your internet speed for their purposes. Changing of this parameter to ZERO will not change windows performance; just will increase your internet speed and bandwidth.
