You can use this technique to increase the speed of wireless network you are using at your home or work. This is a very simple solution for Wireless as well as for LAN connections. This technique is all about configuring MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit), which is the size (in bytes) of the largest protocol data unit that the layer can pass onwards.
Follow the steps below to increase your internet speed
- Open the Run box by pressing “Windows key + R”
- Type in “cmd” and press Enter.
- Now to see the default parameters of your PC or machine enter the below statement and press Enter.
You will get something like this
|MTU||State||Bytes In||Bytes Out||Interface|
|4294967295||1||0||13487914||Loopback Pseudo-Interface 1|
|1500||1||3734493902||282497358||Wireless Network Connection|
|1500||1||0||0||Local Area Connection|
Now to change the default values of MTU enter the below statement.
In the following statement i have used “mtu=1400” as an example. You can set your MTU values on your own. But remember one thing try to keep it unique (by setting it a bit lower than what the mass uses on the same network).
If you are using a LAN (Local Area Network) connection:
If you are using a Wireless connection:
Now start your browser and look what who have done to your internet speed. I m sure you will feel its running more than twice the speed it was. If you have any other way out to increase the speed over the network, please feel free to share it in your comments below.
