I have a cheap network card and I have the options to enable flow control. The question is should I do it? I have loaded the patches from speedguide.net and do not want to enable it if it is going to slow down my cable modem connection. I know it manages the data flow but I am thinking it will have an affect on my cable modem tweaks. What do you guys think?

Unless you have a local network with some really slow computers on it, leave it OFF. It's just overhead. Ethernet flow control is an OSI Layer 2 function that will be ignored as soon as the data touches the cable modem.
