HTTP Request Settings

Post by Tinman57 » Sun Mar 10, 2013 2:11 am

Ever since the MS updates a couple of weeks ago, my internet has come to a crawl, sometimes to the point of not even being useful, especially in the peek usage hours.
This got me to thinking about the different "tweaks" I've experimented with or read about over the years. So I tried some changes using TZ Connection Booster (Free). I went through the setup and the part for "Max number of simultaneous request for accessing type 1.0 or 1.1 HTTP servers." I changed HTTP 1.0 from 20 (the recommended) to 50, and the same for HTTP 1.1.
I am extremely happy to report that things have sped up considerably. It was taking me several tries to actually start getting a web page to load, and then it would take up to 3 to 5 minutes to load completely. Now the same web pages load up almost instantly and on the first try.

You may want to give this setting a try and see what it does for your internet speed....
(Duck! It's another MicroSoft Patch!)
