Default Intreasting Microsoft !

I was surfing the net reading up on loads of interesting things and I came across an article that stated Microsoft are taking 20 % of your bandwidth and gave instructions on how to check and adjust. Interested on your thoughts should i not bother ?

Okay here's how to get it back:

Click Start then run then gpedit.msc

this opens a policy editor then

local computer policy > computer configuration > Administrative template > Network > Qos packet scheduler > limit reservable bandwidth

Double click on limit reservable bandwidth it will say it is not configured now check the explain tab

By default the packet scheduler is set at 20% you can change this the article recommends that you do not set it to 0 but to 1 or 2 % and that this has been tested only on XP pro and 2000.

I do know there are some real clever cookies out there in CF world and im interested in there views on this one. I have not done any personal testing on this yet but may give it a go.

i really haven't ever seen my internet at a slow pace, and never really could notice any decrease in bandwidth to the point i needed to change this. nice article, but i just don't see the point...?
