Boost Your Broadband Internet Speed with CMD

Boost broadband speed

We have shared a lot of articles related to Windows Command Prompt. It is the most interesting tool in Windows where you are free to do most of the tasks which are usually restricted in GUI.

In my last article, I’ve shared How To Find Passwords of All Connected Wi-Fi Networks using CMD and many people found it interesting. So this time I am sharing some other interesting CMD commands which can boost your Broadband Internet Speed.

It is not actually an extra speed, it’s what you’ve got from ISP but for some reasons, you don’t get the maximum speed your ISP provides you. Though the broadband speed depends on various external factors, you can improve the internal factors by these simple commands

How to Boost Broadband Internet Speed with CMD?

Step 1: Open CMD as an administrator, type netsh int tcp show global and Press Enter.

Step2: Now change the TCP parameters. Open notepad and type these commands:

netsh int tcp show global
netsh int tcp set global chimney=enabled
netsh int tcp set heuristics disabled
netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=normal
netsh int tcp set global congestionprovider=ctcp

Step 3: Save this file as Boostspeed.bat

Step 4: Run BoostSpeed.bat in administrator mode.

That’s all. These commands will boost your broadband speed and You will notice 30-35% increase in the speed.

To reset TCP global parameters to default values Type these in notepad

netsh int tcp show global
netsh int tcp set global chimney=default
netsh int tcp set heuristics enabled
netsh int tcp set global congestionprovider=none

and save it as say Reset.bat to reset the TCP global parameters to their respective default values. You will have to run this file as an administrator.
