Get 20% more bandwidth

Windows uses 20% of your bandwidth! Get it back!

A nice little tweak for XP Pro. MS reserve 20% of your available bandwidth for their own purposes (suspect for updates and interrogating your machine etc..)

Here's how to get it back:

Click Start-->Run-->type: gpedit.msc

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, rather than the default 20%.
works on XP Pro, and 2000

that setting is for QOS, not for your connection setting.

for more information about QOS, see this

don't forget to read the last paragraph: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q316666#

by the way, i wonder why u set it to 0 instead of just disable it altogether. so amateur.

After executing this tweak, would it affect the computer in any big way, or rather, bad way? I know it can gives us back more bandwidth, but the bandwidth must have been used for something else before we disable it.
