Tip & How-To about Microsoft Windows XP Professional
If you are using Windows XP Professional or Windows 2000 you can get this 20% back quite easily if you use XP Home its a bit more difficult to say the least
Navigate to the Limit reservable bandwidth in the Local Computer Policy in the Network Administartive Templates
Double click on Limit Reservable bandwidth. It will say it is not configured, but the truth is under the ‘Explain’ tab i.e.”By default,the Packet Scheduler limits the system to 20 percent of the bandwidth of a connection, but you can use this setting to override the default.”
So the trick is to ENABLE it then set it to ZERO. This will allow the system to reserve nothing, rather than the default 20% set by Microsoft for Updating.
If you want to enable this function in Windows XP Home then you need to follow THIS tip first to install the GPEditor.
