How to optimize your internet connection
  

To optimize your Internet speed and your ping time in games such as Counter-Strike, Quake 3 ... or simply to give a boost to your connection, follow these steps:

Log on as Administrator.

Start / Run, type "gpedit.msc".

Turn left, go to Computer Configuration / Administrative Templates / Network / QoS Packet Scheduler.

Right, right click on Limit bandwidth booking and choose Properties from the menu.

Make sure the Enabled button is checked and it says Bandwidth Limit (%), set the counter equal to 0.
Close everything and restart your PC for the changes to be supported.

Re: How to optimize your internet connection

From experience, the most serious slowdowns in the speed of surfing on the internet have absolutely no connection with the line ... Sometimes this is simply a lack of maintenance of the machine. To do this, do the hunting regularly for viruses, spyware and adware, especially if you use Windows. The virus must be updated ...

Then, with a good antivirus program, it is necessary to guard against spyware. Spyware are small programs spies collecting information about you and your habits. To report to their master what you've done, they use your precious bandwidth ... This means that when you have multiple spyware on your computer, it seems to surf at the speed of snails! Often, they are also the source of many pop-ups, or worse, invite you to download more spywares ... To fight against these bugs, get yourself a spyware.

Your connection works but your speed is erratic or certain web pages are not displayed, then you will have perhaps set the MTU. What is MTU? The MTU is the maximum amount of information that may contain a packet of information you send or receive through your line. Data sent over the Internet are transmitted per packet (1500 bytes for PPPoE and 1492 for PPPoE). On a bad connection, there are more lost packets that must be returned by the source. The idea is to limit the size of these lost packets to the source has the least possible data broadcast. To limit the size of lost packets, you must lower the MTU size. If you have a direct connection to the Internet (without modem router), the MTU is set on your computer.

Then you must know that most of the modems or routers are "flashable". They follow a program that may be changed, explaining how to take full advantage of your hardware and telephone line. So, from time to time, updates to their firmware is automatically carried out, including the "Box". But sometimes, manipulations are done to yourself: you must find and install the latest version of your firmware. You must be extremely careful in this process very carefully and follow manufacturer's directions: at worst, if the new firmware did not fully installed, you can end up with a modem unusable ... and be forced to return to service. Check all, even before if there was not an "factory settings" ... but unfortunately that is not guaranteed.

The optimization tools often provide more problems than they resolved. TCP Optimizer is supposed to improve your free connectivity by setting the MTU and RWIN on Windows 9x/ME/2K/XP/XP-SP2/2k3. A test.

on faster connections ( more than ~512kbit) this does not give any noticable difference, and does nothing at all to the 16 mbit connection I have at home.

One of the best things you can do is update the firmware in your router to a newer version. If you know what you're doing and you have one of the more popular routers, then you can flash the router firmware to a modded version of the firmware. This does void the warranty, but will mostly also give a small boost in internet speed if you tweak it right.
