    i remember when i had win 98 that i used to add memory to my ethernet card by using an IRQ tweak... adding a line IRQ09=4096 into system.ini... but will this work in win xp?

    There is a IRQ tweak to add priority but not memory per se...and the trick is counter effective, it only works if your having a problem with the device. if your not having a problem it can just slow down other devices. why would you want to add memory to your ethernet card?

    well your right..I looked it up...it looks like the tweak would be useful if you had low ram or alot of programs running or a slow processor, but hey who knows give it a shot

    IRQ Setting for XP

    HKLM\SYSTEM\CCS\Control\PriorityControl\IRQ8Priority=DWORD:1

    You can set any value, such as IRQ 9, IRQ 10, etc.

    IRQ8 is the system cmos timer. Setting it to a priority of "1"
    will provide your bios with the most active control over your
    device steering.

    Give it a shot. Gave my machine a boost..

    DONT DO THIS CONFIG ON COMPAQ SERVERS.

    Works everywhere else.
