After reading many reviews on the internet about how Windows 7 is the new Windows XP with a face lift, I decided to upgrade my laptop’s operation system. Well there was no direct way to upgrade but I deleted Xp and formated my laptop before, and after I did a new Windows 7 installation.
The new Windows 7 is impressive only if you have a new machine, in my case I had a laptop that I bought 2 years ago and was coming with Vista as default operation system. To be honest it was not working as well as I was expecting.
So I did some research and I found that other than the very heavy theme and design system, Windows 7 has some bandwidth limitations. I disabled some of the windows features that i didn’t want and I customized the startup programs. At last I fixed the bandwidth limit and I will show you how in seven steps:
Step 1. Open Start Menu and click on RUN
Step 2. Type “gpedit.msc” inside Run and click OK
Step 3. In the new window that opens click “Administrative Templates” in the left side.
Step 4. Inside “Administrative Templates”, find the folder Network and double click.
Step 5. Now double click inside Network the file called “Qos Packed Schedular”
Step 6. Inside “Qos Packed Schedular”, find “Limit Reservable Bandwidth” and double click.
Step 7.In the Limit Reservable Bandwidth window click the option “Disable” and restart your PC or laptop.
Tip: You can also select the option “Enable”, and will disable the bandwidth limit, but only if you change the Bandwidth Limit percentage from 20% to zero.
