I stumbled upon this site: http://wiresmash.com/how-to/how-to-increas...nnection-speed/ where someone says you can increase Windows Xp Internet Connection Speed via gpedit.msc, but I am suspicious it might be a hoax! I am terrible at tips and tricks. Looking for some guidance...

Thanks

According to the replies on the page, it's not available on XP Home Edition. So it's probably not useful to the average user.

Yeah, but is it actually possible to get a speed increase via gpedit.msc? I am wondering what this 'QoS Packet Scheduler' is. And since I am on Wireless, would I be able to get an increase in Internet connection if I followed the instruction in the link?

There are many other factors that affect internet connectivity so this seems iffy to me.

It works under a certain set of circumstances. I'd suggest reading more about the QoS service before deciding.

As an Advisory to those considering SG TCP Optimizer

From Downloads.com Review, here:

Just a partial quote, below:

Editor's review of SG TCP Optimizer

This well-designed program tests and improves your Internet connection speed, but it needs an experienced operator.

And

Novices, on the other hand, shouldn't bother with this application. Its many settings, though easily changed, could cause serious system slowdowns if improperly altered.


The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)


A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)


"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

Thanks for the quote Animal!

I haven't tried the TCP Optimizer yet, partly because I am sort of a 'novice' (certainly not an experienced operator!) and partly because I am not sure if it will work on my laptop which I usually connect wireless...

Somebody let me know please if it can improve wireless connection?
