What kind of connexion are you using, to move on to your other question?

It depends on what you want to increase performance in. Are you talking about using software or buying new parts? If you're talking software you can set up a power user account and run a disk defrag.

DSL Reports also has a speed test. It's best to use several tests over several days and at different times. Cable connexion speeds can vary depending on the number of people in your area using it, so run the tests during off times and peak times to get an average.
Cheers,
John
