Faster Browsing on Vista Tweak

Windows Vista and Server 2008 ships with various components that do not always function as predicted. One of these features only works on some newer routers, and causes performance issues when using any other router.  This quick change will speed up your browsing of websites regardless of browser.

Log on to your Vista Computer as Administrator or with an account with Administrative rights. Alternatively you may

Run As Administrator


1. Go to Start

2. Go to Run

3. Type in CMD (press enter)

4. Type in

netsh interface tcp show global


If you have Receive Window Auto-Tuning Level set to anything other than disabled, type in

netsh interface tcp set global autotunning=restricted

Now try to surf to a few pages, if that didnt help, then you may try

netsh interface tcp set global autotunning=disabled


Once again, try to browse a few websites, If you do not notice a speed increase, you can always set the tcp settings back, by typing in

netsh interface tcp set global autotunning=restricted
