Slow internet

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.help_and_support (More info?)

Found this on a site that says my internet speed downloading is half
what it should be. I know it is slow. Is this a viable solution to
help?

Launch window registry editor by clicking on Start | Run .
Click in the Open dropdown box and type in regedit.exe then click OK .
Back up your registry by selecting File | Export type in a meaningful
file name, in the export range section select All and save to your hard
drive. To restore your old registry you simply import this file.
Next you need to create a new registry key. On the left side you need to
go to the directory
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters
Select Edit | New | DWORD Value .
Rename the new registry key to TcpWindowSize.
Modify the registry setting for TcpWindowSize by double clicking on the
key.
Change the Base Setting to Decimal.
Use the below table to determined what value to enter into the Value
data field and click OK. Option Receive Buffer Size Description
Typical Latency 64240 This is the most common case for cable modems,
DSL, or satellite connections. Use this setting if your ping times are
often greater than 100ms. It will set the receive buffer size to 64240.
Low Latency 32120 Use this setting if ping times to your most commonly
used sites are usually less than 100ms, or if your connection
experiences high ping losses. It will set the receive buffer size to
32120. Some cable modem or DSL users may find this setting provides
better performance.

For these settings to take effect you need to close all your open
applications and reboot your system.

    The setting changes that you sited in your original post are for DSL and
    Cable also, hence the reason I sent you to the two links below. In your case
    you are unlike to gain any noticable differences by changing any settings.
