By doing certain modifications in the system, we can improve our internet connection speed. These are the steps to increase speed in Windows 2k/XP

         

Step 1



Create a back up first as a safety measure.Open the Windows Registry using Regedit and navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\ServiceProvider

Step 2



Find the below lines there (all hex dwords):
Class = 008 ( biggrin.gif - don't change it because it indicates that TCP/IP is a name service provider.
LocalPriority = 1f3 (499) - cache local names cache
HostsPriority = 1f4 (500) - HOSTS file
DnsPriority = 7d0 (2000) - DNS
NetbtPriority = 7d1 (2001) - NetBT name-resolution, including WINS


Step 3





Increasing the priority of the last 4 settings is our target step , without changing their order. The range of validity is from -32768 to +32767 and lower numbers mean higher priority compared to other services. Without going to extremes we have to put lower numbers , something like what's shown below should work well.

Step 4



Instead of "Priority" lines, put:
LocalPriority = 005 (5) - cache local names
HostsPriority = 006 (6) - the HOSTS file
DnsPriority = 007 (7) - DNS
NetbtPriority = 008 (biggrin.gif - NetBT name-resolution, including WINS)

Step 5



After performing this, reboot the system and you have done it.
