    Tips on WinXP Tweaking

    + Get back 20% bandwidth from Win XP (faster connection) :
    Run and type “gpedit.msc” > Local Computer Policy > Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Network > QOS Packet Scheduler > Limit Reservable Bandwidth > Double click on Limit Reservable bandwidth > Enabled reservable bandwidth > Set it to 0.
    + Using OpenDNS (faster, safer, smarter connection) :
    Start > Control Panel > Network Connection > Choose your Network > Properties > Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) > Properties > Use the following DNS server addresses => 208 67 222 222, 208 67 220 220.
    + Save Bandwidth with Toonel :
    Toonel is an experiment in a technique for conserving network bandwidth. If you are paying a fee based on the amount of data you transfer (e.g. 3G/GPRS/DSL/CDMA) and have monthly download limit, or if you have narrowband connection (e.g. dialup modem) then you are most likely to appreciate the service toonel.net offers (http://toonel.net).

    Note : It requires Java Environment (http://java.com/en/download/index.jsp)

    Set the following proxy for Toonel : 127.0.0.1 Port 8080

    + Internet Explorer : Tools > Internet Options > Connections > “LAN settings” > “ Use a proxy server for your LAN” > Address : 127.0.0.1 Port 8080.

    + Mozilla FireFox : Tools > Options > Advanced > Network > Connection > “Settings” > Manual Proxy Configuration > HTTP Proxy : 127.0.0.1 Port 8080.
    + OpenDNS works with Toonel :
    Start > Control Panel > Network Connection > Choose your Network > Properties > Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) > Properties > Advanced > DNS > uncheck Append parent suffixes of the primary DNS suffix.
    + Disable useless items (faster connection ) :
    Start > Control Panel > Network Connection > Choose your Network > Uncheck "Client for Microsoft Networks”, “File and Printer sharing for Microsoft Network” , and “QoS Packet scheduler”.
    + Disable useless services (faster connection ) :
    Run > Type "services.msc" > Disable "Application Layer Gateway Service", "Automatic Updates & Background Intelligent Transfer Service", "QoS RSVP" > Restart Win !!!
    + FireFox Tweaks for FireFox fans :

    Useful Add-ons to save bandwidth and faster connection :

    + AdBlockPlus (Block Images , Flash...) : https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1865

    + AdBlockPlus Element Hiding Helper (block HTML elements, WYSIWYG style) :https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4364

    + NoScript (Block Javascripts with Filter, detect Google Analytics...) : https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/722

    More FireFox Usage:

    + Disable Cookies (protect yourself from eyes, save bandwidth and Disk space) : Tools > Options > Privacy > Uncheck accept cookies from sites
    (note : allow Google.com and Yahoo.com, and of course speedguide.net)
    +
    Large cache (save bandwidth and load pages faster) : Tools > Advanced > Network > Set cache (500 MB is recommended)
    FireFox Add-ons to hack Google Search User Interface :
    Greasemonkey : https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/748

    Two Column Google (row-wise) places Google search results into two columns row-wise, making use of wasted space on large monitors. http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/8477

    + Using TCPOptimizer + Cablenut :

    Of course, no need to explain more. By the way, thanks Trogers for supporting.
