Getting The Most Out Of My 1mb Connection!! Tweakers Read..

Hey all, as in my previous post about upgrading my con to 1mb and ive just sent off for my ethernet router! a lil bit faster than my usb i hear. Now is there any settings i can change for my 1mb broadband to make it go faster?..

I have a copied copy of windows xp.. and dont think sp1 or 2 works on my computer, i've tried but can't actually install it at all.. will that make any differences to my speed of con?

Anyone got any suggestions! please help.
thanks very much...

Get a better copy of WinXP and do install SP2. I don't know if it will speed up your connection but it certainly has many improvements which will make your system run faster.

maybe i shouldn't have mentioned that.. but it absolutely wont update the version of windows.. how much does a good copy of windows xp retail cost these days..? anyone know.

and is tweaking the MTU the best way to get the most out of connection? if so what are good settings to use on 1mb con?

Please read the MTU tweak thead, it contains lots of examples to try for all speeds.

WinXP Home upgrade (which will upgrade a Win9x/Me system) is about £80, the full retail version will cost about £180.

XP Home (OEM) about £60. Check Google.

Loosley speaking whilst upgrading your 'system' you should get away with it.

Better off being legal. Wink
