Hi Guy's,

Anyone out there got the Nvidia firewall to work on SP2 XP Pro. When I load
the software it restricts my braodband to only 12 K download speed, from
approx 37K (300kbytes Line).

There's not much in the way of support yet on there site either.

You may wish to contact NVIDIA since your issue is not
an issue with Windows XP itself:

Also,

When I first installed the NV firewall my download maximum speed was
restricted to only 12K (128Kbts upstream speed), then I removed it due to
the issue previously described and I seem to be receiving less packets on my
TCP/IP connection then I send, as if the RX/TX function has been reversed.

Any ideas?
