Improve Your Dial Up Speed

This post deals with the methods to improve your browsing experience...ecpecially for my friends using DIAL UP modem.

2.1 Follow these simple steps.

You can't assume that just because you connected at a speed like 48.3KBps that you will stay there. Today's modems automatically fall back to a lower speed if the line noise is too high to maintain a faster connection, but sometimes they fall back too soon or too far.

Here's how to do it:

Click Start the button.
Select Settings.
Click Control Panel.
Double-click on the Modems icon.
Select your modem.
Click the Properties button.
Click the Connections tab.
Click the Advanced button.
In the "Extra settings" field, type S36=7
Click OK to save your settings.

This will force your modem to try to stay connected at high speeds in two different ways before dropping back to an asynchronous mode with auto speed buffering.
2.2 Increase your bandwidth by 20%

This is one of the most popular tricks to increase your connection speed.
i am wrong here if i say "to increase your speed" cuz in this trick you recover the band width that you already deserve.So here it goes.

Increasing Band-Width By 20%
Microsoft reserves 20% of your available bandwidth for their own purposes like Windows Updates and interrogating your PC etc

To 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 then Computer Configuration then Administrative Templates then Network then QOS Packet Scheduler and then to 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 percent 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.

2.3 The Final post to improve your browsing speed on a dial up conncetion.

a)Speed up browsing

This tip works on ALL Windows 95/98/ME and NT4/2000 systems with MS Internet Explorer 4/5/6 installed. This Registry tip speeds up internet/remote (using Windows Explorer and/or Internet Explorer) browsing process considerably on most MS Windows 32-bit machines connected to a network and/or remote computer(s).
This actually fixes a BUG in MS Windows OSes that scan shared (remote) folders/files across the network for Scheduled Tasks, and can add a delay as long as 30 seconds (!), because it uses extra time to search the remote computer(s). To do this, open Regedit (Win95/98/ME) or Regedt32 (WinNT4/2000) and go to:
Highlight this value:
and delete it: right-click on it -> select Delete -> click OK.
RECOMMENDED: Export (BACKUP) this Registry key to a REG file FIRST, to be able to restore it (by running the REG file) if necessary. In Regedit: highlight the key name in the left hand pane -> click "Registry" from the menu -> select "Export Registry File..." -> type a file name in the "File name" field -> browse to the destination of your choice -> push the Save button.
This Registry change takes effect immediately. Just start MS IE while connected to the network/internet to see the difference.
NOTE: Upgrading to a newer MS Internet Explorer release may add this key to your Registry during Setup, therefore you may need to delete it again after installing MS IE.anyway guys , this seems to be efficient to some extent ...

b)You can actually raise your connection speed to 115kbps from 28kbps or 56kbps!

Like most devices, modems have options to set too.
These configureations are set in whats called Initialization
commands. Before a modem dials a number to an ISP, it
checks this command line for any changes in the way it
performs. I won't ramble on for an hour on how this works,
so I'll tell you what to do.

(This example is for a Windows machine. Linux and Mac users are on their own, but it
shouldn't be that hard to figure out.)

Get to Control Panel. If you use XP, switch to
classic view. Double click phone and modem options, modems,
properties,advanced, and click on Extra Initialization
commands. Now enter AT&FX (try &AX&FX if that command doesn't
work) and hit ok. Now connect to the internet and notice you
boost in speed!
