    To change the value right mouse click on the value and select modify and enter the values above once you have done all of them reboot to take effect and see how fast your pages load.
    (Make them ALL Hexidecimal values)

    mnosteele52,

    I’d like to try the above tweak also, and I too use Windows 98SE, with the same settings
    as Ashdaw. THE PROBLEM: How do you apply the above tweak? I’ve done as you had said, right clicked, chose modify, but which set of numbers do you modify? For example: Dnspriority, my settings are; (0000 D0 07 00 00 D…) If I were to change 07 to 7, it becomes 37. Also, say the tweak won’t work for you and you wanted to change back to your old settings, do you just highlight the number that you had changed and change it back, or do you have to go over to the right side and change it there? It looks like a few of us are a little confused on applying this tweak, and most important, we want to be able to return to our old settings if it doesn’t work out.
    Any more “detailed” help that you could provide would be appreciated?

    Thanks,

    John!

    My browsing has always been speedy.. but I always want to tweak it more. Although I didn't notice a speed difference yet... I probably will a little later (whilst I test it).

    Your Registry settings should look like this if you did it right.

    Evil, it is a bit hard mate as Win98SE uses Binary values and the Info at Microsoft about this is plain useless.
    They say -32767 to 32768 ???

    I dont know how to turn the Value of Dword Hexidecimal to Binary Value..

    Guys that have Win98SE, I think I have it figured. Open Regedit and go to that Key:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\
    Services\VxD\MSTCP\ServiceProvider]

    "LocalPriority"=hex:f3,01,00,00
    "HostsPriority"=hex:f4,01,00,00
    "DnsPriority"=hex:d0,07,00,00
    "NetbtPriority"=hex:d1,07,00,00
    "Class"=hex:08,00,00,00
    "ProviderPath"="%windir%\\system\\wsock32.dll"


    When you do, highlight the serviceProvider Folder and use the registry comnmand at the top left hand and export that key to a reg file and store in a folder. After that, try altering the Keys to look like this;


    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\
    Services\VxD\MSTCP\ServiceProvider]

    "LocalPriority"=hex:05,00,00,00
    "HostsPriority"=hex:06,00,00,00
    "DnsPriority"=hex:07,00,00,00
    "NetbtPriority"=hex:08,00,00,00
    "Class"=hex:08,00,00,00
    "ProviderPath"="%windir%\\system\\wsock32.dll"

    So did you notice a difference Ash?

    I don't really want to goto the trouble if it doesn't work or if it messes up my reg.

    EvilAjax,

    I exported the “Service Provider” folder with my current settings and saved it to where I keep different RWIN settings, then I deleted all current registry keys and created a new DWORD key for all of the above with a Hexadecimal value as you had said. I’ll give it a try for a few days to see if there’s an improvement in speed. Like the saying goes; “Nothing ventured, Nothing gained”!

    Thanks for the help!

    John

    Guys,

    Thanks for this tweak, it seems to work with Windows98SE as well, I did as Ashdaw said and it works great so far. Have a great day.

    You are not entering any words...not "hex" not "sex" not even "tex". You are ONLY entering NUMBERS!
    The "hex" referrs to the value type of the data you are entering..either "hex" for hexidecimal or "DWORD" value.
    In Win98, you will only be able to edit the numbers. Just click and back out the existing numbers and enter the correct number for each string value (use Ashdaws numbers..they work).

    Example: if LocalPriority value is f3 07 00 00 (just an example)
    Make it look like this: 05 00 00 00

    Then click OK
    When you have changed all the values, exit the registry and reboot

    How to edit registry
    From our friends at Tweak XP

    How do I edit the registry?
    Excluding POLICY.POL for the moment, you cannot simply open

    SYSTEM.DAT or USER.DAT to edit the registry. You must use the correct

    tool for the job. Everything you do on the PC will affect the registry in

    some way or another, either automatically, or by you performing some

    action with software.
    The Control Panel applets offer a simple interface between the user and

    most of the hardware settings stored in the registry (such as Display

    properties, or Modem and Network properties). Tweak UI (part of the

    Microsoft Powertoys set) is a special utility designed to edit various

    registry settings that are otherwise unavailable via the Control Panel.

    Policy Editor (which we'll discuss in more detail later), is more suited to

    administrative registry editing. Plus there are any number of tweaking

    utilities that "expose" the registry's commonest entries.
    Since this discussion is about the registry itself, we must use a tool that

    allows us to edit ALL of the registry. In this case, the correct tool is the

    Registry Editor. By default, Registry Editor is located in the C:\WINDOWS

    folder and goes by the name REGEDIT.EXE.
    Before continuing, a word of warning: everything you do in RegEdit is

    "live". That is, all edits are made there and then - there is no apply or undo

    button. Therefore, use extreme caution while using RegEdit and don't

    change anything unless you are 100% sure of what it is your editing, and

    more importantly, why you are editing it. The registry isn't as fragile as

    some would have you believe, however, if you don't know what you're

    doing, you can easily end up breaking Windows. However, as we'll see, it is

    easy to save sections of the registry before editing them.
    NOTE: Your administrator may have blocked your access to RegEdit. This

    is a wise precaution on his/her part, since you could easily ruin their day.

    Figure 1: The Registry Editor
    As you can see in figure 1, RegEdit looks very much like a Windows

    Explorer view, but instead of folders and sub-folders, we have keys and

    sub-keys, and instead of named files containing data, we have named

    values containing data. The data may be an ordinary text string, or a

    numeric value in decimal, hexadecimal or binary. In fact, the registry is so

    flexible it'll support 12 different types of data (compared to the one string

    data type available in the old INI files).
    Keys always which begin with "HKEY_". The 6 listed keys are the root

    keys - or nodes (HKEY actually means key handle, bizarrely). Some HKEYs

    (like HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT) are merely pointers to sub-keys contained

    in one of the other HKEYs - very much like a shortcut. By creating pointers

    like this, access to often-used areas of SYSTEM.DAT and USER.DAT

    become that much quicker. Very much like creating a shortcut to a file or

    folder on your desktop to speed up access to it. However, unlike shortcuts,

    you cannot create your own pointers.
    Below each of these keys there are sub-keys (much like sub-folders).

    When we address a key we use the familiar path convention we use when

    addressing a file or folder. For example, the current user's software key is

    addressed HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software. HKEY_CURRENT_USER

    itself is actually a shortcut to HKEY_USERS\, where is the current user's

    username.
    By addressing each key by its node path, the registry can be accessed

    extremely quickly (just as afile is accessed quickly when you tell Windows

    where it is located). If you've ever used the Windows Find, Files or Folders

    utility, you'll know how slow it can be to find the files you're looking for.

    Similarly with RegEdit's Edit > Find tool. So whenever possible, narrow

    your search to a particular node or sub-key, and be as specific as possible.
    Let's look at each HKEY node in more detail:
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT
    Often expressed as HKCR, this area of the registry is a pointer to the

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\CLASSES key, and contains

    everything from filetype associations to shell extensions. Since this area

    of the registry is accessed every time you open a file or use an object,

    creating a pointer to it speeds up access to it. Also, since it is a pointer,

    every edit made to this portion of the registry using RegEdit is immediately

    reflected in the HKLM key it refers to.
    HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG
    Often expressed as HKCC, this key contains all the Plug and Play settings

    and information about the current configuration of a multi-configuration

    computer (such as a docking station). This key is actually a pointer to one

    of the configuration branches of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Config.
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER
    Often expressed as HKCU, this area of the registry contains user-specific

    settings, and points to the user's specific branch of the HKEY_USERS key.
    HKEY_DYN_DATA
    Often expressed as HKDD, dynamic data which is stored in RAM (and is

    therefore under constant change) is stored in this key. This information

    can change as devices are added or removed. Device Manager uses this

    data to show the current hardware configuration, and is used to constantly

    update System Monitor. This key doesn't actually exist in the registry files,

    it only exists in RAM.
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
    Often expressed as HKLM, this key contains machine-specific information

    about the hardware installed, as well as software settings. The information

    in this key is used by all users who log on to the machine.
    HKEY_USERS
    Often expressed as HKU, this key contains information regarding the

    default and current users. Each user who logs on has a sub-key under this

    key, and is made up from their own USER.DAT file. If you find a particular

    user is missing from this key, log on to their profile and export their from

    this key. Log on under all other users, including the default user, and

    import their .

    REG files
    If you highlight a key and select File > Export, you will be asked to enter a

    filename. The end result is a .REG file which contains all the entries in and

    below the key you highlighted. You can even backup the entire registry by

    this method. However normally you'd use it to quickly backup a key you

    were about to remove or edit.
    REG files are nothing more than plain-text files. The REG extension is

    associated with RegEdit so double-clicking a REG file will allow you to

    "merge" (import) the data contained therein - thus restoring the entries to

    what they were before you edited them. However, there are is one

    drawback: new entries added since the REG file was created will not be

    removed - only existing entries are overwritten, and missing entries

    restored. However, for most edits this is perfectly adequate.
    The REG file format is relatively simple. Take a look at the Registry Hacks

    page for some examples. At the very top of the file is the identifier,

    REGEDIT4. This must appear at the top of all REG files on a line of its own.

    Below this are two blank lines (although one is sufficient) followed by the

    first key, which is surrounded by square braces []. If there are any data

    values for this key, they are listed immediately below it in "data

    name"="data value" format (for string data types). Other data types have

    their own specific format, with the type of data immediately following the

    equals sign (=), e.g., "data name"=hex:00000001 for an 8-bit binary value,

    and "data name"=dword:00,00,00,00 for double-word values (4 bytes).
    Every key has a default value. However, not all default values actually

    contain data (they are not set). But since the default value has no name

    (the name is actually the name of the key it belongs), the "@" symbol is

    used instead. The default value is always a string type so, whenever one is

    set, the REG file will show an entry like @="default value". One such use

    for a default value is to specify a default key immediately below the default

    value's key. We'll look at this in greater detail shortly.
    After all values for a particular key are listed, a blank line separates it from

    the next key. Notice how keys are listed in hierarchical form, from the

    parents to the children. This is because missing keys need to be recreated,

    and this can only be achieved if the parent key(s) exist. Keys are added (if

    missing) in the order they appear, thus parents must always appear before

    their children. However, the order of the parents at similar levels may not

    be alphabetical, and the values themselves may not be alphabetical either.

    The order they appear in is the order they were created in. You could spend

    time sorting the order but there's very little point in doing so. A particular

    key or value will be found just as quickly regardless of its order.
    The REG file continues in this fashion, listing keys and their respective

    values, separating each key with a blank line. At the end of the file there

    must be at least one blank line (this is common of most script files - since

    the carriage return/line-feed at the end of each line is treated as a part of

    the line).
    The observant amongst you may have noticed file and folder pathnames in

    the data values use double-forward-slashes ("\\") rather than the normal

    single-forward-slash ("\"). This is simply because the single forward-slash

    is a special "tag" character, used to clarify the character that follows it. In

    other words, the two characters are treated as a single character. For

    example, "\t" translates as a tab character, while "\n" translates as a

    carriage-return/line-feed. Since the forward-slash is a special character, it

    can't be used in registry pathnames. However, a double-forward-slash

    clarifies that the second forward-slash is a genuine forward-slash. The first

    is therefore ignored. If you look in the registry you'll see the

    double-slashes are correctly shown as single-slashes.
    If you've looked through my Registry Hacks you may have discovered one

    or two you'd like to try. Now would be a good opportunity to put your

    newly found skills into action, while you observe the REG inserting its

    entries. Simply use RegEdit to navigate to the appropriate key that the REG

    will edit, and look at the current entries. Merge the REG file (by

    double-clicking it) then hit F5 to refresh RegEdit. Your new entries will

    appear in the editor. Note that some settings (local machine settings in

    particular) will require a reboot to take full effect. These types of settings

    are read at bootup and remain in memory throughout. Others (particularly

    current user settings) may require a logoff in order to take effect. However,

    for the most part, settings will take effect from the moment you merge them

    - although the program that uses those settings may require refreshing

    itself (or even to be shut down and re-run) before the settings take effect. If

    in doubt, reboot.
    A few paragraphs ago I mentioned that REG files couldn't remove new

    entries added since making the REG file. That isn't entirely true. To remove

    entries using REG files you need to remove the entire key the entry

    appears in, and then restore the other entries. For example, suppose I

    have a key for my own software

    (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\PCForrest) and want to remove the

    data value named "MyApp". I would first export the

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\PCForrest] key, and then move the

    "MyApp" line to the top of the file, under the same key but with a leading

    minus (-), like so:
    REGEDIT4

    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\PCForrest]
    "MyApp"="This Entry Should be Removed"

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\PCForrest]
    "ThisApp"="This Entry Belongs Here"
    "ThatApp"="This Entry Also Belongs Here"

    Note that when removing keys, it doesn't matter what values you place

    below them. I include them merely to show precisely what I want to delete.

    However, be aware that any values in addition to the ones in this file (and

    any sub-keys within it) will also be deleted
