I have an application that accepts broadcasted work assignments for me.

I used to dominate. 

Recently, I keep getting beat out. 


I have a dedicated laptop with a hardwired internet connection. I use a normal, new cat 5 e cable. 

The laptop is a dell Latitude E5510 with plenty of ram and a I-5 processor and SSD

Running window 7 pro. 

I have no antivirus, no firewall. 


I use anti-captcha.com for solving. 


I run nothing else on this comp. No web browsing except that the app opens the assignment acceptance page. 


The app is located in a folder on my desktop. (if that makes any difference)


I have chrome open with no address so it is already open. I have all accelerators, protections and assists turned off, chrome is set to run on high priority from task manager settings. 


I run the app on "High Priority" and as administrator. 


As it stands now my internet speed, ping upload, download, All very fast. 

Download is 50-80mbps upload 15-30

Latency 40ms - 220 ms.  (which is weird because the latency on my wifi connected laptop is a consistent 20-24ms)



Other than what I just typed above.(Any mistakes I am making?)


This link describes using OpenDNS instead of what windows normally uses.

Would this work? Does it work?
