Used to do this often before I had broadband and I still did even after that >>

If you want to tweak stuff try TCP Optimizer. XP isn't brilliant at handling high broadband speeds (10mbps+) and it can help a bit there. Vista/7 controls things differently and is usually best left alone.

This technique specifically was really popular with optimizing 56K speed, it doesn't really apply as much to broadband speeds and if anything can mess with your overall packet handling :/ I wouldn't suggest going that route as it was only really a good idea about 15 years ago and even then it had mixed results.

I was surfing through a website and CA came across this guide which could possibly increase my internet speed... This is directly copied from the website:
1] go to desktop->My computer-(right click on)->properties->then go HARDWARE tab-> Devicemanager-> now u see a window of Device manager then go to Ports->Communication Port(double click on it and Open). after open u can see a Communication Port properties. go the Port Setting:----and now increase ur "Bits per second" to 128000. and "Flow control" change 2 Hardware
2]type this coding in notepad and save as .reg and then execute this file....this will increase ur surfing n downloading speed.....
