Thanks for the tutorial guys

Why don't we change TCP/IPv6 too?

Swarf - Who's your ISP? Which DNS Server do you use?
I use BT and Googles DNS and don't see much difference, just curious where you get best results as we are only 50 miles or so apart.

The last test I did - I will have to dig out the test app again - the following were the fastest for the UK

Primary 4.2.2.5
Secondary 4.2.2.3

Eagerly awaiting the link Nigel, it'll be interesting to see how much difference there really is.

I think that's the app I used previously - but not sure . The advantage of something like this is it gives a personal answer, so even someone in he house next door could get different recommendations dependent on their actual ISPs infrastructure

Windows 7 64bit Not Addressing 4GB RAM on Macbook Pro
Hi all I have a Macbook Pro 13 (2010) model and have just installed Windows 7 Ultimate (64). When I check the system settings it says "RAM: 4GB (3.74GB Available)" and I reckon some of that is shared with the 256MB GPU. Is there anyway to fix this so that Windows utilities the 4GB? Thanks.
