Not too much other than that

Dial up speeds are limited to 53Kb on standard lines. When you start downloading, you download will consume most of your bandwidth. The only good way around it is to get broadband. Most broadband ISPs burst your connection speed. This means that although you are limited to a set download limit, you connection can burst beyond it. This is how it is possible to have 10 or 15 downloads going at the same time all at high speeds.

Trust me it DOES happen in WinME. Why you never noticed I don't know. On a 56K there's only so much bandwidth. On broadband the effect is unnoticable.

That's the QoS myth. Changing the value won't have any effect. The 20% isn't "removed" while you surf. It's just how much QoS can reserve for QoS programs if they need it. As far as I know, noone uses QoS (yet?).

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
