Virgin media say xp slowing down my broadband

  athenrye 15:15 02 Aug 2007

im supposed to be on 20mb broadband speed
virgin media have gave me a new cable modem and put a new connection in the cable box outside my house
this raised my speeds from 4mb to 9 mb no probs

the tech guy has now claimed that XP isnt set up for high broadband speeds as it was an office tool to start with

he advised to go to click here to alter the xp settings to get the most out of my connection

he tried some downloads from the blueyonder games site and told me that the connection is running at 20mb

ive looked at the speedguide site and cant see anything that would help
anybody had this problem before?

Re:the Speedguide site, I think he probably meant this page click here in particular the tool listed at the top. Download the tool, set the connection speed slider to 20 Meg and click on Optimal settings.
