Increase Bandwith

If you run an application that needs to send high priority/real time data, XP will restrict "best effort" traffic to 80% of the bandwidth.

To change this...

    * Log in as Administrator (Not just any account with admin privileges)
    * Click Start
    * Click Run

    * Enter gpedit.msc
    * Select Local Computer Policy
    * Select Administrative Templates
    * Select Network
    * Select QOS Packet Scheduler
    * In the right window, double-click limit reservable bandwidth
    * On setting tab, check enabled setting
    * Bandwidth limit % value = 0
    * Click OK
    * Close gpedit.msc

    * Click My Computer
          o Select My Network Connections
          o Select View Network Connections
          o Right-click your connection
    * Under Protocol Properties, check QOS Packet Scheduler
    * Reboot
