try this:
If your network desn't give the speed you want then follow these great tips to improve network settings

The speed of your network connection doesn't just depend on the speed of your hardware. Windows is an operating system that is designed to work on a variety of different hardware and network setups. Because of the abstract nature of the operating system, it cannot be optimized for user-specific hardware setups.

Depending on the type of network connection you have, you might be able to tweak your connection so that the speed of your Internet, as well as your local area network, will be faster. By hacking the System Registry and editing the TCP/IP parameters, you can fine-tune the values to take advantage of more reliable, faster Internet connections, such as DSL and cable.

These next sections will guide you through the steps of increasing both the speed of your local area network and your Internet connection.

Does your computer slow down when you browse your local area network and connect to other computers that are sharing data? One of the most common causes of this slowdown is a feature of Windows Explorer that looks for scheduled tasks on remote computers. This effort can take some time on some computers and can really slow down your browsing. The window with which you are browsing the network may appear to freeze momentarily, as the system is waiting for a response from the remote computer.

Although this problem is a complex one, the solution is very simple. Instead of having to wait for the remote scheduled tasks, which is useless information to anyone who is not a system administrator remotely configuring scheduled tasks, you can disable this feature.

In order to do this, you will have to hack the System Registry and delete a reference to a key so that this feature will not be loaded. To do this, follow these steps:

1. Open up the Registry Editor by clicking the Start Menu and selecting Run. Then type regedit in the text box and click the OK button.
2. Once the Registry Editor has loaded, expand the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE key.
3. Next, expand Software and then Microsoft.
4. Locate Windows and expand that as well.
5. You will want to be editing the main system files, so expand CurrentVersion.
6. Because this feature is a feature of the Windows component known as Explorer, expand the Explorer key.
7. Next, you will want to modify the remote computer settings, so expand the RemoteComputer key and then expand the NameSpace key to show all of the features that are enabled when you browse to a remote computer.
8. In the NameSpace folder you will find two entries. One is "{2227A280-3AEA-1069-A2DE-08002B30309D}" which tells Explorer to show printers shared on the remote machine. The other, "{D6277990-4C6A-11CF-8D87-00AA0060F5BF}," tells Explorer to show remote scheduled tasks. This is the one that you should delete. This can be done by right-clicking the name of the key and selecting Delete.


Tip:
If you have no use for viewing remote shared printers and are really only interested in shared files, consider deleting the printers key, "{2227A280-3AEA-1069-A2DE-08002B30309D}", as well. This will also boost your browsing speed.

I have two software solutions that can help you save internet data and hence MONEY!
These software programs are available as freeware on the internet.
So there's no need to pay cash into my account, yet!


1

be prompted to register on first use- where you enter your e-mail and username; the page then send you log-in details to

enable Traffic Compressor 2.0.423).


SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
======================
Windows 2000, XP, 2003, Vista, 2008, 7.
Internet connection.


USAGE
=======
TrafficCompressor compresses data received and sent over the Internet- including page text,codes,pictures on web pages,

e-mail text and attachments, Windows Messenger and chat messages and so on.
As a result your Internet traffic may be decreased by up to 40% - 60% and your Internet connection becomes faster.
TrafficCompressor can be especially valuable for the Internet users who pay for traffic helping you to save your money by

saving your Internet traffic.

Decreasing data usage on chat programs,instant messengers, AIM, Yahoo! Messenger, Jabber, Gadu-Gadu, Usenet(News) traffic and

IRC traffic (6667-6670 ports only).
Data usage is reduced on some online games (MMORPG's/MPOG's) like: World of Warcraft, Ragnarok Online, Lineage II and others

(standard ports only).



SETTING
========
The TrafficCompressor network protocols can be optimized to achieve better Internet access speed with some traffic volume

increase or better traffic reduction with some Internet access slowing down; we would recommend you to try all optimization

modes and choose the mode that better suits your needs for traffic reduction and Internet connection speed.




2
Networx 5.1.9
(SoftPerfect Research)
http://www.softperfect.com
=======================================================================================

Number two is Networx 5.1.9, this freeware program is available for download at
http://www.softperfect.com.


SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
======================
Windows 2000, XP, 2003, Vista, 2008, 7.
Internet connection.


USAGE
=======
NetWorx is a powerful tool that monitors and evaluate your bandwidth situation. You can use it to collect bandwidth usage

data and measure the speed of your Internet or any other network connection. NetWorx can help you identify possible sources

of network problems, ensure that you do not exceed the bandwidth limits specified by your ISP, or track down suspicious

network activity characteristic of Trojan horses and hacker attacks.

The program allows you to monitor all your network connections or a specific network connection (such as Ethernet or PPP)

only. The software also features a system of highly customizable visual and sound alerts. You can set it up to alert you when

the network connection is down or when some suspicious activity, such as unusually heavy data flow, occurs. It can also

automatically disconnect all dialup connections and shut down the system.

The incoming and outgoing traffic is represented on a line chart and logged to a file, so that you can always view statistics

about your daily, weekly and monthly bandwidth usage and dialup duration. The reports can be exported to a variety of

formats, such as HTML, MS Word and Excel, for further analysis.

ADVANTAGES

#  Find out and monitor how fast your Internet connection is.
# Find out and monitor how much Internet traffic you consume.
# Verify whether your ISP charges your Internet usage fairly.
# Detect a suspicious network activity on your computer.
# Perform simple network tests such as ping and trace route.
# Be notified about excessive Internet usage
