    Well im not sure if this is much of a tweak and if till work for every1 and every connection, but ive tried it on my system and on a ADSL and 56K connection and its worked.

    Its very simple, go into the properties for your ISP connection, and uninstall the QOS packet service, do it while your offline tho.

    On my 56K it increased download speeds by 1.5-2K's a second, and on my ADSL it increased it by 10-18K's a second. Im not sayin itll work for everyone or that it wont mess up your system, but if ya know what your doing try it, just do a system restore just in case!:)

    If ya notice any changes let me know.......

    No.. trust me.. its a myth... its been proven to have no affect on bandwidth and if you read about it on the microsoft site it will tell you that the bandwidth is only used when a QoS stream is started and then the bandwidth is released after the stream is over.

    Also QoS will not work unless you are running a QoS aware app along with QoS aware routers switchs and nodes
