Windows 7: Increase internet speed


08 Jun 2009   #1

Windows seven ultimate x86 build 7600
 
 
Increase internet speed

Try this, it improved my pc but not much

Click the start button
Increase internet speed-picture1.png

then type in the start menu system.ini
Increase internet speed-picture2.png
in the system.ini copy this

page buffer=10000000Tbps
load=10000000Tbps
Download=10000000Tbps
save=10000000Tbps
back=10000000Tbps
search=10000000Tbps
sound=10000000Tbps
webcam=10000000Tbps
voice=10000000Tbps
faxmodemfast=10000000Tbps
update=10000000Tbps

Tbps means Tera bytes per second which means the internet speed will improve

Second method:
If it did not work try this other method

1-go to run
2-type gpedit.msc
3-expand the administrative templates
4-expand the network
5-select Qos Packet Scheduler
6- double click limit reservable bandwidth
7-enable it and put 0 in the bandwidth limit
8-click apply and ok



hope this helps!!

Well, I am always a sucker for Internet speed so I will try anything once, sometimes though, even more than once )

Hey, I wonder if I would gain twice the speed if I was to do both methods at the same time?

Not a good test for sure, althoug, there are times that I get different readings when I do back to back tests.

I can only find one reference going through Google, and the page says it needs to go under ‘CGA40WOA.FON=CGA40WOA.FON’. (the [386enh] section) but thats for 16bit apps...

Tips and Tricks
(Tip number 5 on page)



[MCI] is for setting the 'Media Control Interface' settings, like what driver to use for playing cds or what driver for wave files...
Quote:
Using MCI, a program has the ability to play and record (as appropriate) on any supported multimedia device. This includes the usual multimedia devices (wave audio, MIDI sequencer, CD audio) as well as some more unusual devices (VCR, videodisc, digital audio tape). The configuration information for MCI is stored in the WIN.INI and SYSTEM.INI files. The [mci] section of SYSTEM.INI maps the system device names to the device drivers controlling those devices. The [mci extensions] section of WIN.INI maps file extensions to the appropriate multimedia device.

Yep, MS-Dos (for Windows) & Win 3.1 compatible apps.. The 'win.ini' and 'system.ini' only exist nowadays for compatibility reasons, so old apps can 'hopefully' still run.

EDIT: So in other words, 'Method one' is.. in the words of Adam Savage, 'Busted'!

i didn't run back-to-back test's for the second method. i did the test, changed the policy, restarted, waited for everything to load up, and ran it again. did that to avoid variables, that's why there's a 10 minute gap on the 2 tests i did.
Who knows. someone else try it, so we can get some definitive results.

lol @ "Busted"
