IE faster connection

  Publisher 17:57 20 May 2004

I have just installed a modem for a friend and put him on the internet. He is using 98SE.

I remember that there was a way to uncheck some boxes in a diaologue box to get it to connect faster, and stop the delay between 'Verifying password' and actually logging on.

Basically, you stop it going through un-necessary protocols.

Can anybody remember which ones?

click here and click internet optmisation.

It explains main ways to improve browsing speeds, as to answer your question, untick all exempt TCP/IP.

Excellent, glad you got it sorted.

E-mailed so you would have a direct answer, rather than having to come on here to check.
