Florian just indicated me something that really blew me. By default microsoft takes/steals 20% of your bandwith (reserved for updates)
If you don't believe me check out that screenshot below i discovered on my windows XP
So if you don't have 100% of bandwith here is what you should do (takes 10secs)
- Click Start-->Run-->type "gpedit.msc" without the "
- This opens the group policy editor. Then go to:
- Local Computer Policy-->Computer Configuration-->Administrative Templates-->Network-->QOS Packet Scheduler-->Limit Reservable Bandwidth
- Double click on Limit Reservable bandwidth. It will say it is not configured, but the truth is under the 'Explain' tab :
- "By default, the Packet Scheduler limits the system to 20 percent of the bandwidth of a connection, but you can use this setting to override the default."
- So the trick is to ENABLE reservable bandwidth, then set it to ZERO. This will allow the system to reserve nothing, rather than the default 20%.
