Re: [Speed Issues] Ruined internet with Regedit Well, You have done the "no no" of ALL "no no's" on Windows and thats you have messed with the TCP/IP stack....
guess what? the only 100% for sure way to fix it is to re-install Windows....
Its been common knowledge for a long time...never mess with anything but RWIN(thats only on Windows XP) and newer versions of Windows leave things be.
Also, you can't reduce ping like that...packet routes, BGP, upstream routers, and other equipment on/that makes up the Internet is really what decides your ping because your ping to a host is dependent on the state and length of the routes your packets take, and that is determined by the routers and equipment that makes up the net. it decides which, of many routes, your packets will take.
so don't believe what you read about making any changes on your PC is going to help with that...also please remember..don't confuse download/upload(bandwidth) with latency because they are NOT the same thing...ISP sell connections on download speed(bandwidth, more bandwidth means faster browsing, downloading, etc) not latency...a 2MB DSL line with a low ping such as 6-14ms is better for gaming then a 30mb download line from Comcast with a 25-35ms ping....its all about latency.
Good luck re-installing Windows...live and learn!
