How do you increase the speed of Internet in virtual PC XP Mode?

How do you increase the speed of the Iinternet on this Virtual Windows XP. I just installed and its so slow compared to VMware or VirtualBox. When its downloading updates or Antivirus updates its taking forever. I have good internet speeds is there something I can tweak to run faster.

I increased RAM to 768MB. I didnt know how high I could go.

For what it is worth my XPMode speeds are within a few kb/s from my Seven install or my iPhone. And that is with security software installed.
