  1. recently a friend of mine who has broadband showed me this.
    the 2 blue monitors blinking, he double clicked on in went to properties then TCP/IP. there he first saw a default gateway adress. His third number was 46 and at that time he was getting speeds around 60-70 KB/s. He changed that to 45>then OK. WOW! now his speeds reached well over 200-300! even 500 sometimes.

    I want to know is it possible with my broadband connection too? and how will i know which number to change and to what??

    can sum1 xplain the concepts!!!???

    Default gateway is your Modem's IP (you may need the modem's manual to find this)
    The IP must be in the range of the IP addresses the modem/router allows
    The subnet mask, is usually autodetected, after the IP is put in.
    The DNS entries are confirmed by the ISP

    By the way, this is all not advisable, it is best for the "Automatic" option to be used
    Which you probably have already
