VMWare Windows XP - Internet going at Dialup speeds on Broadband.

  1. I'm not sure what's causing it, I used a Windows XP Professional disk to install XP in a virtual machine. Ever since then I get download speeds (On the VM only, my regular machine is fine) of ~20kbps. Anyone have a solution or is this just the software (VMWare Workstation 6.0)

    Did you apply the TCP patch for SP2 since there was a know issue with TCP slowness, that Microsoft start applying to their OS. XP SP1 didn't have this problem. Search on google for XP SP2 TCP Slowness Patch. This patch changes three files on your system. Once that is done I would recommend using TCP Optimizer found on speedguide.net to tweak the TCP/UDP/LAN/WAN some more.
