windows sucks your internet bandwidth. get it back.

Microsoft reserves 20% of your available bandwidth for their own purpose like windows update
and interrogating your pc etc

You can get it back.

Click start menu then run and type "gpedit.msc" without quotes. this opens the group policy editor.

Then go to:

--> Local computer policy

-->computer configuration

-->administrative templates


-->QOS Packet scheduler

-->Limit reservable Bandwidth

Double click on limit reservable bandwidth.
It will say it is not configured, but the truth is under the 'Explain' tab i.e. By packet scheduler limits
the system to 20% of the bandwidth of a connection, but you can use this setting to override the

So the trick is to enable reservable bandwidth, then set it to zero(0).
This will allow the system to reserve nothing, rather than just default 20%.

It also works on windows 2000 as well.

Thank you.
