Does XP limit your bandwith?

  BigMoFoT 23:11 29 Jan 03

I've heard some stories that XP (PRO Version only!) will reserve it's own bandwith for such things as windows updates for example - so I decided to investigate.

Using the group Policy Editor (Start>Run and then type in gpedit.msc) allows you to change certain settings and is pretty useful tool.

Now in gpsedit, under computer configuration>administrative templates>network and then QOS packet scheduler there is an option that says "limit reservable bandwith".

My question is does it limit your connection - (I have set the value to 0 as 20% is it's default value)? Or is it just something to do with the QOS packets?

click here then click on the left hand side on TCP/IP Analyzer

if the MTU=1500 then it is perfect for broadband

As AndySD says - it is an ill-informed myth.
