Boost your Cable/DSL speed: a Registry Hack


Here is a simple way to boost your Cable/DSL speed, just copy the ENTIRE BOLD text in the "quote" box below to Notepad, then save them as *.reg files, ie "DslBoost.reg".
Then all you have to do to modify/restore is double-click the *.reg file!!


REGEDIT4
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\Tcpip\Parameters]
"GlobalMaxTcpWindowSize"=dword:0000ffff


It has worked wonders with me as it increased my speed from 5.0mbps all the way to 9.9mbps or sometimes a whole damn lot more like once it hit 15.7mbps youve got to try it!!

If u want to test your speed before and after the hack, goto this link for a free test of speed.

In my machine this hack has worked well, but I haven't tried for other machines. If this hack don't work for your machine, just simple doing the "undo registry" like thats above. Here is entry for undoing this hack:


REGEDIT4
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\Tcpip\Parameters]
"GlobalMaxTcpWindowSize"=dword:00007fff


Remember that its for Cable/DSL only and not for crazy Dial-up!!

Note:
Some people confuse "Servic es" and change it to "Services". DON'T do this because it makes the hack not work!! Also, it took me a while to find out where I saved this so please thank me for this!!!
BTW: PLEASE make sure the "Hide extensions for known file types" option is unchecked........this will enable you to change the file type from *.txt to *.reg and activate the hack.

Didn't do anything for download speeds but it did decrease my upload speed. Maybe it works for others easy to undo worth a shot I guess.

Christopher Messmer said...

Didn't speed up anything it made no change on my download speed and it decresed my upload speed slightly, not much though. It was very easy to undo and may work for someone else so I would give it a try, it couldn't hurt.
