Boost Up Your BroadBand Internet Speed Upto 200%

Steps :

1. Go to ==> “My Network Places” properties , highlight the connection then at the menu bar choose “Advanced” then “Advanced Settings”. Uncheck the two boxes in the lower half for the bindings for File and Printer sharing and Client for MS networks. Click OK.

Continue as indicated below steps:

1. From the Windows Xp CD (bootable CD used to install Xp) in the support directory from the support cab, extract the file netcap.exe and place it in a directory on your hard drive or even in the root of your C:\ drive.

2. Next, open up a command prompt window and change directories to where you put netcap.exe then type “netcap/?”. It will list some commands that are available for netcap and a netmon driver will be installed. At the bottom you will see your adapters. You should see two of them if using a 3Com card. One will be for LAN and the other will be for WAN something or other.

3. Next type “netcap/Remove”. This will remove the netmon driver.

4. Open up control panel ==> system ==> hardware==>device manager and look at your network adapters. You should now see two of them and one will have a yellow ! on it. Right click on the one without the yellow ! and choose uninstall. Yes! you are uninstalling your network adapter, continue with the uninstall. Do not restart yet.

5. Check your connection properties to make sure that no connection exists. If you get a wizard just cancel out of it.

6. Now restart the machine and go to your connection properties again and you should have a new connection called “Local area connection 2”. Highlight the connection, then at the menu bar choose “Advanced” then “Advanced Settings”. Uncheck the two boxes in the lower half for the bindings for File and Printer sharing and Client for MS networks. Click OK.

8. Choose connection properties and uncheck the “QOS” box

9. Restart the machine and enjoy the increased responsiveness of IE, faster page loading, and a connection speed boost.
