Speed up your internet connection without software

by 15 comments
1. Go in Start >> Run Type gpedit.msc
== This opens the Policy Editor:

2. Now, Local Computer Policy >> Computer Configuration.
3. Then, Administrative Templates >> Network
4. Now, click on QOS Packet Scheduler

5. Now, on Right hand side = Double Click Limit reservable bandwidth
== Now in Setting Tab It says : Not Configure
***Reality: “The Explain Tab” says “By default, the Packet Scheduler limits the system to 20 percent of the bandwidth of a connection”

6. So, on Setting Tab select Enabled
7. Now, change Bandwidth limit (%) to 0 (Zero)
8. Click apply and ok.

That’s it..

    Windows cannot find 'gpedit.msc' Make Sure you typed the name correctly and then try again.

    Yeah, there's an upgrade. I was going to get it this past spring but never got around to it. I understand you can run XP with the pricier versions of Win 7. I've got a lot of perfectly good software that won't run on 7 but works fine on XP.

    Now Win 8 is out so maybe I'll just wait and see if that takes off. Thanks for clearing it up for me.

    You can still get this working on Windows7 Home Premium, I have it working on mine right now.

    Go here & follow the instructions, download & run the installer, the most important part to get this running is this:

    NOTE: For Windows 7 64-bit (x64) users! You'll also need to go to "SysWOW64" folder present in "C:Windows" folder and copy "GroupPolicy", "GroupPolicyUsers" folders and gpedit.msc file from there and paste them in "C:WindowsSystem32" folder.
    Basically all your doing is copying/pasting files from 64-bit over to the 32-bit folder.

    I copied these 2 folders:
    • C:\Windows\SysWOW64\GroupPolicy
    • C:\Windows\SysWOW64\GroupPolicyUsers

    Note: Overwrite the two existing files in the 32-bit folder, for me the folders already existed, only they were empty.

    I copied this single file:
    C:\Windows\SysWOW64\gpedit


    Paste the copy of the two copied folders & the single file into the 32-bit folder:
    C:\Windows\System32

    I also shutdown & restarted my PC.

    After you startup the PC, go to "Run" & run the gpedit.msc file, it should work this time.

    To be honest I don't see any difference in speed. My percentage was turned off, but the default is supposed to be set at 20% regardless If it's activated or not.

    Anyways, you can still test it on Win7 Home Premium & see If it helps or not with speed.
