    Wil I gain anything by tweaking my DSL connection?

    I've got what's supposed to be the 768kbps download speed with Embarq.
    I've read where it's supposedly possible to tweak your DSL connection.
    I've looked at this Navas guide but before I go tinkering with things,
    wonder if it's likely I'm going to see any improvement. To be honest,
    I don't even find the registry value the Navas guide refers to.
    Running Win XP home.

    I've looked at various speed test sites, the number vary a bit but
    they seem to come fairly close to what I believe I'm supposed to be
    getting.

    When I download a file off YouTube using Vdownloader, the rate is
    around 93kb/s. Does that sound about right for my bargain DSL? I
    assume one is kilobits and one is kilobytes?

    93 X 8 = 744 So, with rounding sounds exactly right.
