    Removing 20% Band Width Limit XP Imposes (Win XP Pro SP1)

    I ran across this and wonder if anybody has experience with something like it or knows anything about the 20% bandwidth limitation XP supposedly imposes "under certain circumstances." Does the little group policy tweak in this article here seem worth doing?

    I have had that tweek for awhile. I have no way of proving that it works, but it sure seem to have helped. But then again, I am a tweek junkie, maybe I was just Jone'sen. <img src=/S/dizzy.gif border=0 alt=dizzy width=15 height=15>

    There has been a lot of misunderstanding about that feature, which is also present in Win2000. For a complete explanation, check out the MS article, Windows XP Quality of Service (QoS) Enhancements and Behavior.

    Miz,

    I go to your link and get a "netster" page. Where is that article?

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Well, I read the articles and I still can't see a reason to run QoS or allow it to use any Bandwidth, another words , not to use the tweak. To be honest I definitely have not seen any downside to this on my DSL. So for now, I will leave the Tweak that I made along time ago. Of course the truth is, you can go to several different sites and get several different outlooks. Who knows. The way I see it, the proof is in the pudding. The problem is finding the pudding.

    I would agree with you there. Unless you're really steeped in TCP/IP and network troubleshooting of broad band for a living, you can get lost in a maze of contradictory info, even at good sites, and even with good people who do it for a living. Sites like the Navas Group and Broadbandreports.com.

    What intrigued me here was something I'd never heard, that native to Windows XP there could be a significant intermittent limitation to broad bandwidth. The info was posted on a very good site where a lot of time and care is spent getting to get things correct.
