Speed up Internet Connection by Reducing Microsoft Reserve QoS Packet Scheduler Bandwidth

By default windows set to use 20% of your bandwidth. This could be disadvantage. So if there is speed up internet connectiona way for avoid this that will be useful.

Microsoft reserve 20% of your available bandwidth for their own purposes (suspect for updates, interrogating your machine and etc...)

Here is the way get it back:

1. Go to start >> Run >> and type “gpedit.msc” (without “”)
This will open the policy editor.

2. Navigate to “Local Computer Policy” >> “Computer Configuration” >> “Administrative Templates” >> “Network” >> “QOS Packet Scheduler” >> “Limit Reservable Bandwidth”

3. Right click on Limit Reservable Bandwidth and select properties. In settings tab check “Enable” and set the Bandwidth limit to 0 and click apply.

"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 and set it to zero."

Here is another way you can implement the same thing, in my computer I tried both these methods and both are work pretty well.

1. Go to Control Panel >> Network Connections

2. Right-click on your Dial-up or ADSL connection -> Properties and under the “Networking” tab

3. Uninstall QoS Packet Scheduler
