There are two ways to improve your internet speed.

One, free up resources on your computer (like the previous answer states). You can do this by closing programs that don't need to be running. There are also programs available (some for free), which will free up resources for you. Some of these are geared towards gamers, like Razer Game Booster - Razer Game Booster Performance Boosting Screencapture Software Razer... I've tried it and it appears to work. Watch the video on their website. Some settings may do things that are not beneficial, tweak settings one at a time. If you find yourself with problems with your settings, uninstall the software and re-install it to go back to "default" settings.

Solution number two: upgrade your internet service. I would suggest running a free speed test to make sure you're getting the most out of your existing connection first. Cable internet speeds will vary depending on how many other people are using the internet at the same time as you - no matter what your provider may try to tell you. DSL speeds vary depending on how far away you are from the switch. DSL speeds are usually listed as "up to" or "max" of 6 Mbps. I live 3.3 km (about 2 miles) away from my switch and I get about 4 Mbps and I'm very happy with that. I can stream 1080 HD video with no problem. No DSL service provider can make your DSL speed go faster using the equipment in the same location.

Increase internet speed


To increase internet speed
* Check to see if faster internet connections are in your area:
Fiber optic and cable internet tend to be faster than DSL and dial-Up.
*Do some basic maintenance on your PC:
a scan disk, a virus scan, a malware scan, and clear your recycle bin.Delete old files and temporary files.
* Reset Your Modem
Sometimes switching OFF and ON your modem helps you to speed the internet.
* Optimize your cache or temporary Internet files.
These files improve your Internet connection performance by not downloading the same file over and over.

After you have tried some of this,try your connection again using Scanmyspeed.com and see if it's running any faster. If you are not satisfied Call your Internet service provider (ISP) and check whether upgradation of your plan is necessary.

How to increase your internet by 20% ?


If you use Windows XP Professional then it is possible to squeeze an extra 20% out of your internet connection. By default Windows XP Pro holds back 20% of your Internet speed for various services like windows update and spyware checks.<br />If you want to tap into this locked speed then make the following changes:<br /> &bull; Go to Start-&gt; Run-&gt; and type gpedit.msc<br />&bull; Expand the Administrative Templates branch<br />&bull; Expand the Network tab<br />&bull; Highlight QoS Packet Scheduler<br />&bull; Click on Limit Reservable Bandwidth and check the 'enabled' box<br />&bull; Then Change the Bandwidth limit % to 0 %<br />Once you've done this click apply and restart your PC. After rebooting you should see a noticeable improvement in your net speed.

Sometimes youtube plays well BUT most of the times it is quite slow. What can I do if anything to improve the performance?


Either you can lower quality of the video played or get faster internet connection.

According to what have you wrote, I personally believe it is a matter of the internet connection

Your download speed is probably too slow. If you're on cable as opposed to telephone DSL anyone else in your neighborhood that's on cable high speed will bring down your connection / download speed. Try the TCP optimizer at this link. It may improve your connectivity.

Internet speed connection


There are various software add-ons that claim to improve internet speed, but your best bet would be to upgrade your internet package through your ISP.

Actually a router will not improve your speed, unless you are upgrading from one speed to a faster speed. A router is a device that controls the 'traffic' on your network. In the simplest explanation it 'routes' the uploads/downloads/etc across your network. It also enables you to have multiple computers access the internet through the same internet access such as dial-up modem, cable modem, satellite, DSL, etc.

If you are running a 56K modem for your internet connection, the only thing you can really do to improve your connection speed is to obtain a software program that accelerates the download.

There are different types of 56K modems, and some do have faster overall speeds but the speed is not a huge change.

If I am misunderstanding your question, please provide more details and I will be happy to respond with further details.
