HOW TO SPEED UP YOUR INTERNET USING WINDOWS DEFAULT OPTIONS

"Accomplishment is easiest when we work the hardest, and it is hardest when we work the easiest."
Microsoft reserves 20% of your available bandwidth for their own purposes like Windows Updates and interrogating your pc and etc..

You can get it back:

Click Start then Run and type "gpedit.msc" without quotes. This opens the group policy editor.
Then go to:
--> Local Computer Policy
--> Computer Configuration
--> Administrative Templates
--> Network
--> QOS Packet Scheduler
--> Limit Reservable Bandwidth.
 
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% of the bandwidth of a connection, but you can use this setting to override the default."
So the trick is to ENABLE reservable bandwidth, then set it to ZERO. This will allow the system to reserve nothing, rather than the default 20%.It works on Win 2000 as well.
