first off.. sorry if this in the wrong place.. this is my first time posting here.
although I've used this site plenty of times before to solve many problems.
Stop network throttling
Windows Vista limits network transfers when you're playing multimedia files to stop your music or video skipping. Great idea, but it can reduce performance on some high-speed network connections.
To fix this, go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Multimedia\SystemProfile
and create a new DWORD
value called NetworkThrottlingIndexValue
Set this to values between one and 70 (10 is the default, higher values mean less throttling) or FFFFFFFF
to disable throttling completely.
I respect this site much more than the site I found that on.
so what is your stance on this?
note. my upload/downloads speeds are already quite low so anything that might speed that up helps.. http://www.speedtest.net/result/543212897.png
