I was wondering if there were any decent programs or a tweak or something I can use/do to my computer to tweak my connection/network and bandwidth stuff... I just want to increase my internet speed a little, to create less lag on games, and search the net a bit quicker....

Any suggestions or ideas?

I run a;

Pentium 4 2.81Ghz proccessor
768Mbs of Ram
nVidia GeForce FX5200


For networking on my computer I have a;

Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet card
and a.
Realtek RTL8139 Family PCI Fast Ethernet NIC

Which do you think would be better to use?

or can I tweak these things at all?

Thanks in advance!!

Not really, your ISP likely limits the speed according to the traffic at the time and a ceiling depending on your type of connection. And be wary of software that promises to do that because it is often riddled with adware.

I wonder if its possible to request more bandwidth from eastlink lol
Or if I can upgrade or something... wonder if any other ISP are better...

Hmm... perhaps I should shop around!
