Utilizing Bandwidth in Windows® 7
What are the different ways to improve the bandwidth in Windows 7 based computer system?
Bandwidth in computer networking means the data rate supported by a network connection or interface. This represents in terms of the bits per second. The bandwidth comes from the field of electrical engineering, where bandwidth represents the total distance or range between highest signal and the lowest one. Bandwidth represents the capacity of the connection. Performance of the system purely depends upon the capacity of the system, though overall performance also depends on other factors, such as latency. As most network administrators can attest, bandwidth in the network is one of the more important factors in the design and maintenance of a functional LAN or WAN. Unlike a server, which can be configured and reconfigured throughout the life of the network, bandwidth is one of those elements of network design that is usually improved best by configuring the network correctly from the outset. You can follow many different applications to improve the bandwidth in Windows 7 based computer system.
Following are the different ways to improve the bandwidth utilization in Windows 7 based computer:
- Manual settings
- Using software
- Things to remember
Manual settings in the system can improve the bandwidth in Windows 7 based computer. For this, you need to open the 'Start' menu. Then go to 'Run' and type 'regedit'. This will open the Registry Editor in the system. You can see the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREPoliciesMicrosoftWindowsPsch in the registry. In this you could set the value as 0 and you could also check here HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetservicesPschedParametersAdapters.
You can improve the bandwidth in the system using some software programs. BranchCache is one such software which is used by business organizations to improve the network connection in the system. Using this software, the bandwidth can be improved and the network connection will be fast. The feature is capable of caching data nearby for accessing from users in branch offices provided that Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 are used in conjunction.
You have to remember certain things while improving the bandwidth in Windows 7. You need to select proper software to improve the bandwidth in the system. If the software is not compatible with the system, then you cannot expect the correct performance from this software. So, before installing software, you need to check the requirements in the system to ensure that the software can work with the system with ease.
