No matter how fast your broadband connection is, it’s not fast
enough. There’s nothing you can do to get your ISP to juice up the
bandwidth, but you can do something to make the most out of what
you’ve got. This free program will tweak various connection
settings to help you get a faster, smoother connection.
At first glance, the program is daunting, because of the amount
of technical detail you appear to need to know in order to use it,
such as Latency, Largest MTU, and so on. Your best bet is to click
the Optimal settings button at the bottom of the screen, and then
click Apply changes. That way, the program decides on its own the
best settings and applies them. Unless you’re very experienced, you
probably don’t want to muck around with the settings yourself.
Keep in mind that the proper connection settings can vary
significantly from PC to PC. So there’s a possibility that you can
change your settings and could slow your system down. Mostly,
though, if you follow the advice you’ll find yourself with a better
connection, not a slower one.
