Hi,I'm with UTVInternet.I have just purchased a new PC with XP O/S with hyperthreading.My broadband modem is ZyXEL 630 C1.After contacting UTV, I'm told to switch off hyperthreading in the BIOS.1/ Will this slow down my internet speed much? & 2/ Anyone know a way to avail of the hyperthreading? Thanks.

I've come across very few apps that support Hyperthreading. And no, it won't make any difference whatsoever to your connection speed.
