Internet connection speed is of paramount importance and eking out every last ounce of bandwidth can help you to have a more enjoyable computing experience. Increasing the upload speed of your Windows XP computer can be done by tweaking the computer's registry to prevent the operating system from reserving bandwidth for its own purposes.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Click "Start" and press "Run."

  2. 2

    Type "regedit" and press "Enter."

  3. 3

    Navigate through the following keys in order: "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE," "SOFTWARE," "Policies," "Microsoft," "Windows" and "Psched."

  4. 4

    Right-click in the right-hand panel and create a "New" "DWord." Call this "NonBestEffortLimit."

  5. 5

    Input a value of "0" for the DWORD, which will free up around 20 per cent of your available upload (and download) bandwidth.
