This fix seems to work and makes the PlusNet portal load much quicker.

Pipling can apparently cause problems, BTW.

I've done this before and it does make a difference

Not all webservers support pipelining so it can cause page corruptions, page timeouts or even slower loading than normal.

Also WinXP SP2 introduced a limit of 10 TCP/IP connections so using a figure of 30 would make no difference as only 10 could be active at any one time.

This is the reason why the options are there but disabled as they can cause compatibility problems. As always... use at your own risk.

Is there some way to remove this limit in Winxp SP2?

Remove no, adjust maybe... see http://www.lvllord.de/?lang=en&url=4226patch/faq

Not used it so can't give any recommendation or even say if it works or not.

I've used that patch and it works so go ahead and do it. If you are using P2P programs than you really should use the patch.

I used a patch that changed it to 50 or 100 connections in SP2 Smiley

Ididnt you get some sort of msg that says something like

" files needed by windows to run have been replaced please insert xp sp2 disk to restore these files"

So you said no and carried on?. Is everything ok?. Wink
