Increase internet Speed by 20%

Most of internet users require internet connection with a better speed so that they usually try to increase their internet speed. By default, In Windows operating systems such as Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 etc, the system reserves 20% of bandwidth from the internet connection for various services such as windows updates and some other updates. Therefore, we can tweak internet speed by getting this 20% of bandwidth since that reserved bandwidth may not be often used. If you enable this bandwidth reservation service, then you can change the bandwidth limit to 0%. However, if you disable this setting or not configure it, the system automatically reserves 20% from the bandwidth. Let us see how to increase the internet speed by getting reserved bandwidth.

At the beginning, Simply go to the Run and then type gpedit.msc and hit Enter.
Now, you can see i will open a window as shown below. Here, in the left hand side Browse to Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Network > QoS Packet Scheduler > Limit reservable Bandwidth
Double click on the Limit reservable Bandwidth in the right side, it will open a window which can be used to configure Bandwidth reservation. Select the Enabled option button in the window and change the bandwidth limit value to 0% then click OK to apply the new settings.
Here, you have to restart your computer and after that surf the internet so that you can feel the internet speed is much higher than before.

  1. Run and then type gpedit.msc and hit Enter. the message"windows cannot find" can u solve this?

  2. r u using windows 7 Home Premium , Professional or ultimate version?
    In Windows7 Home premium & Basic , gpedit.msc is not available. gpedit.msc is available in win7 ultimate, enterprice & Professional and windows xp

    Go to C:\Windows\System32\en-US folder and check whether the gpedit.msc file is availble.
    So, i think your windows version doesn't support for accessing group policy editor.
    To do that, you need to upgrade the OS to Ultimate or Professional edition
    see this image that was taken from win7 ultimate.

  3. U can also try copying this gpedit.msc to follwing directories

    Run > type "gpedit.msc" & hit Enter
