Recover the 20% of the bandwidth that windows reserves

I just noticed that it's been a while since my last post about IT stuff. It's like my blog knew since long that I'll not be IT anymore.
And to talk again about IT I'll not find a subject to show off -my on going RHCT certification :D - I'll tell you about an old useful trick to speed up your internet connection. I think it's useful beacuase as far as I know 90% of the connected homes in Tunisia have a 256/128 kbps DSL
256/128 kbps is not that much so imagine that windows grab 20% -this is bad- of your bandwidth without even letting you know -this is worst!!-
20% may not sound a lot but it's 20Mbps if you have a 100Mbps like in Koln http://www.netcologne.de/100m which represent 10 times the fastest DSL connection that you can have in Tunisia -2Mbps-

To unleach your cconnection speed just follow these steps.

Click Start-->Run-->type "gpedit.msc" without the "

This opens the group policy editor. Then go to:


Local Computer Policy-->Computer Configuration-->Administrative Templates-->Network-->QOS Packet Scheduler-->Limit Reservable Bandwidth


Double click on Limit Reservable bandwidth. It will say it is not configured, but the truth is under the 'Explain' tab :

"By default, the Packet Scheduler limits the system to 20 percent of the bandwidth of a connection, but you can use this setting to override the default."

So the trick is to ENABLE reservable bandwidth, then set it to ZERO.

This will allow the system to reserve nothing


I'm afraid that people not really used to cumputers may get confused or scared beacuse these maniplations may seems tricky but if fact it's very simple and no I'm not trying to make your computer explode ^^
