    Question Question about "Speed up browsing with DNS catch" tweak

    I got this tweak from TweakXP.com:

    Speed up browsing with DNS catch
    "When you connect to a web site your computer sends information back and forth, this is obvious. Some of this information deals with resolving the site name to an IP address, the stuff that TCP/IP really deals with, not words. This is DNS information and is used so that you will not need to ask for the site location each and every time you visit the site. Although WinXP and Win2000 has a pretty efficient DNS cache, you can increase its overall performance by increasing its size."

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Dnscache\Parameters
    "CacheHashTableBucketSize"=dword:00000001
    "CacheHashTableSize"=dword:00000180
    "MaxCacheEntryTtlLimit"=dword:0000fa00
    "MaxSOACacheEntryTtlLimit"=dword:0000012d


    Is "dword:0000012d" the right entry for "MaxSOACacheEntryTtlLimit" or is it "dword:0000012c?" I think I recall on my friend's Windows 2000 PC it was "dword:0000012c" but I can't remember (and I looked in the registry in this area AFTER installing Cablenut so I think these registy entries are included in Windows 2000 by default. I know on a clean install of XP Home I have to manually enter them and I have to do it AFTER installing Cablenut (or they get deleted by the Cablenut install.) Are these registry entries included by "default" on a clean install of Windows XP Professional?
