    Hi, I´m first time here.
    I installed Windows XP and now the download speed is
    2 X LOWER than with WIN ME.
    I tried the tweaks from the site, but still the same.
    If anybody can help me - please - let me know.

    Thanx in advance

    did your turn off the QoS packet scheduler? That takes 20% of your bandwidth

    QOS takes ZERO bandwidth that whole QOS bandwidth tweak doesn't apply to anyone unless they are on a QOS aware network using QOS apps which noone with a normal connection would be using.

    goto www.dslreports.com

    run the tweak test and it will help you find the problem, also the forums over there on tweaking tog et the most out of your dsl will be a better resource.

    You might try this.. i found it on another site


    26. Further speedup broadband cable Internet connection
    READ DISCLAIMER FIRST AND THEN FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS BELOW IF APPLICABLE:
    A. in the "My Network Places" properties (right click on the desktop icon and choose properties), highlight the connection then at the menu bar choose "Advanced" then "Advanced Settings". Uncheck the two boxes in the lower half for the bindings for File and Printer sharing and Client for MS networks. Click OK
    B. Continue as indicated below steps:
    1. from the Windows XP CD in the support directory from the support cab, extract the file netcap.exe and place it in a directory on your hard drive or even in the root of your C:\ drive.
    2. next, open up a command prompt window and change directories to where you put netcap.exe then type "netcap/?". It will list some commands that are available for netcap and a netmon driver will be installed. At the bottom you will see your adapters. You should see two of them if using a 3Com card. One will be for LAN and the other will be for WAN something or other.
    3. Next type "netcap/Remove". This will remove the netmon driver.
    4. Open up control panel / system / dev man and look at your network adapters. You should now see two of them and one will have a yellow ! on it. Right click on the one without the yellow ! and choose uninstall. YES! you are uninstalling your network adapter, continue with the uninstall. Do not restart yet.
    5. Check your connection properties to make sure that no connection exists. If you get a wizard just cancel out of it.
    6. Now restart the machine and go to your connection properties again and you should have a new connection called "Local area connection 2". highlight the connection then at the menu bar choose "Advanced" then "Advanced Settings". Uncheck the two boxes in the lower half for the bindings for File and Printer sharing and Client for MS networks. Click OK.
    8. Choose connection properties and uncheck the "QOS" box
    9. Restart the machine and enjoy the increased responsiveness of IE, faster page loading, and a connection speed boost

    It seems that Windows XP installs two separate versions of the NIC card. One you do not normally see in any properties. Remember the "netcap/?" command above showing two different adapters? The LAN one is the one you see. The invisible one slows everything down and its like your running two separate cards together, sharing a connection among two cards. This method breaks This"bond" and allows the NIC to run unhindered.
    IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER: This tweak assumes that you have let Windows XP create a connection on install for your cable modem/NIC combination and that your connection has tcp/ip - QoS - file and print sharing - and client for Microsoft networks ,only installed. It also assumes that winxp will detect your NIC and has in-box drivers for it. If it doesn't do not try This as This may not work.
