If you are running Windows XP on a slower computer you may want to turn off all the excess visual effects. These effects can look appealing, but there is no doubt that the more visual effects the Operating System has to handle, the slower the system will be. You can disable the visual effects to increase the speed of Windows XP.
First we need to get to the Visual Effects settings. Right click on My Computer and select Properties.

For Windows XP

Download the following program: TCP optimizer (GOOGLE IT PLEASE)

Its a really light program, and it changes the settings on your registry so that you can get the most out of your connection.
But in order to do that you must know at what speed you connect to the internet.
If you see speed 100mbps you are probably looking at the speed your pc has to your modem ,
not the modem to the internet so look further, heck ask your mom and dad if u have to.

Now, you have the progam downloaded and everything, the first thing you need to do is find out how much your MTU is.
Click here www.speedguide.net:8080/ And you will see it on top saying for example MTU = 1492 or MTU = 1500

The MTU means Maximum Transmited Unit. The number is in Kilobits.
So when your pc talks with a server or another pc on the internet it sends out thousands of those units.
Now what happens is this, windows have as default 1500 as the MTU, if your provider uses a smaller number, it will have to convert every single packet from 1500 to say 1492.
To do that it requires some time, very little time, but it adds up since there are thousands of those packets sent and received thus your ping gets higher.
So what you need to absolutely make sure at first is that your pc sends out the packets at the right size, to save the server from needing change them!

All good until now? i hope you understand what i just said, if you did not , please get someone who does to fiddle with your internet settings, i don’t want you guys to mess up and blame me.

Okay great! Now lets start tweaking

Do what i write in the same exact order.

Resized to 46% (was 1188 x 499) – Click image to enlargePosted Image

First off we open the TCPoptimizer program.
We go to the bottom of it and click on custom settings (1)
On the network adapter settings we check modify all network adapters(2)
We put the MTU the site gave us on the MTU box (3)
Then we drag the slider on top to the network speed we have (changes the receive window automaticaly) (4)
Put Time To Live (TTL) 64. (5)
Max duplicate ACKS 2 (6)
Make sure window scaling is checked and timestamps are not (7)
And that does it!
Click on apply , And click okay. Then restart your pc and you are good to go!

If you have messed around with your modem settings before i strongly recommend you to find the MTU setting for the modem as well and change it to the one the website shows u.
If u cant do it it is okay, don’t mess with your modem settings too much because every modem is different so i cant post a guide on how to do it to yours.

Now for Vista or Windows 7 users:

The newer versions of windows have a self tuning TCP connection program !
So you dont have to fiddle with any of those stuff like you did on windows xp!!!

BUT… yea theres always the BUT
They do not tweak the MTU.
They do anything else just not the MTU.

So now what you need to do is go to our trusty site www.speedguide.net:8080/

Now if your MTU=1500 then my man you are good to go!
Whatever is causing your lag is definately not from your connection settings.

If it is another number then you will need to modify it.

Resized to 55% (was 996 x 864) – Click image to enlargePosted Image

To modify it you have to open an elevated command prompt.
To do that write cmd on the search (1)
then right click on the cmd prompt (2)
select “run as administrator”.(3)

Once you got that right
enter the following in the command prompt netsh interface ipv4 show subinterface (4)
You can copy paste it from here just make sure you right click and select paste on the command prompt because ctrl+v does not work.

After you do that it will show you the results. You will see that MTU is 1500 as default. In my picture its 1492 because i have already tweaked mine.

To change the MTU from 1500 to whatever the website tells you the real MTU that gets there is put the following in and replace “MTU” with your mtu’s number and “Local Area Connection” with whatever your pc calls yours.

So put
netsh interface ipv4 set subinterface “Local Area Connection” mtu=MTU store=persistent (5)
For example for my pc it was
netsh interface ipv4 set subinterface “Local Area Connection” mtu=1492 store=persistent
if you do it right you will be rewarded with an ok

Once you do that you can also try to fiddle with your modems MTU and change it with the one the site gives you, if u cant dont bother at all.

Reboot and ure done

Good luck everyone!
