    Use his tweak to an extra 10 Kb/s. I tried it and it works....

    Increase bandwidth by tweaking QoS in Windows XP Pro

    The following tweak applies only to Windows XP Professional edition.

    The default system behavior is that all 100% bandwidth is available, however, if there is a running application that indicates to the OS it needs to send high priority/real time data, then as long as it has the socket open, Windows XP will restrict “best effort” traffic to 80% of the bandwidth so that high priority traffic can be accommodated. Basically, applications can make this request to the operating system for QoS support using the QoS application programming interfaces (APIs) in Windows and this only applies if a specific app is requesting QoS.

    If you'd like to change how much bandwidth is reserved for QoS (the default is 20% of the total bandwidth), do the following:

    1. Make sure you're logged in as "Administrator" (not just any account with admin privileges).
    2. Navigate to START>Run and type: gpedit.msc
    3. Navigate to Local Computer Policy > Administrative Templates > Network > QOS Packet Scheduler
    4. In the right window, double-click the limit reservable bandwidth setting
    5. On the setting tab, check the enabled setting.
    6. Where it says "Bandwidth limit %", change it to read 0 (or whatever percentage you want to reserve for high priority QoS data)
    7. Click OK, close gpedit.msc

    Under START > My Computer > My Network Connections > View Network Connections, right-click on your connection and under Properties (where it lists your protocols), make sure QOS Packet Scheduler is enabled.

    You need to reboot for changes to take effect.

    Note: This tweak applies only to The Professional version of Windows XP.

    Well I think it did

    It seemed to give an extra 10Kb out of Kazaa Lite 1.7.1

    Something about Kazaa says "pro job" to me. So it is bound to stick with the rules and use QoS requesting.

    I doubt you will find out for sure.

    You'll have to just look at your figures.

    Use a big file that's getting a stable d/l rate before applying, and check the same file after applying the tweak and rebooting.

    It's a shame no developers of Kazaa come here, they could tell us.

    You dumbass...

    Stop trying to get people to go to your site! It's just a bunch of popups! You're just trying to make money off of people that think you actually have Blubster 2.0.

    Tweak doesn't do anything

    That 'tweak' doesn't actually do anything to speed up downloads in WindowsXP. The 20% refers to how much maximum bandwidth for services to use. It doesn't prevent that 20% of bandwidth from being used by your normal Internet apps. Any improvment noticed is either wishful thinking or different circumstances in downloading.

    "The 20% refers to how much maximum bandwidth for services to use"

    I don't even know what this means.

    According to the tip, XP Pro reserves 20% for high priority downloads, unless you tell it not too.

    As I didn't know what the hell you were on about, I would recommend people try anyway.
