    A friend sent me this today, found on the net on another unknown Forum (so thank you, wherever you are). Seems it really makes a difference and takes seconds to do. Enjoy, Guys :)

    I guess this goes without saying that you have to be part of a domain?
    I'm on a small home workgroup and I don't have the network option...
    Excellent post though, and a little bit creepy!

    Not at all mate. Note - it's the Local Computer policy. I have it on my XP Pro machine, as should you. Are you being blonde, or have you locked yourself down too tight ? :blink

    I changed mine. I'll let you know if it makes a difference.

    I tried this on my lab machine but under QoS Packet Scheduler, all I have is:

    DSCP value of comforming packets
    DSCP value of non-comforming packets
    Layer-2 priority value

    I can't see the option you cite, Gav. :oops:

    EDIT: Wait! It's not a folder so I couldn't see it in the menu. When I opened the folder in the primary pane, I could see it.

    :oops: again.

    so let me get this right. MS are allowing 20% of your connection for whatever they feel necessary? i.e anything we don't ask for?
    I take it updates etc won't be affected as we request for them?

    Presumably that 20% reserved bandwidth is there to provide a way to keep Windows updated without causing any noticeable difference in performance to the end user. Strange it is only on XP Pro :rolleyes:

    Great find!

    I've set it to Zero, and I 'think' it's made a difference, guess only time will tell.

    This also affects Server 2003. I just checked my DC and when I enabled the Limit Bandwidth gpo it was set to 20%.

    Some more information on this here.

    Seems that it isn't as good as it claims. :(

    Which is also good in that they aren't stealling our bandwidth. :rolleyes:

    Good find Simon, the last thing we want to do is proliferate misinformation.
