|Automatically Detect Slow Network Connections (Windows NT/2000)|
Category: Home > Network
Windows will normally attempt to detect the time-out on network links to determine their speed (high or low). This functionality can be disabled if Windows is having problems determining the speed of your link.
Open your registry and find the key below.
Create a new DWORD value, or modify the existing value called 'SlowLinkDetectEnabled' using the settings below.
Exit your registry, you may need to restart or log out of Windows for the change to take effect.

System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]|
Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
Value: (0 = disabled, 1 = enabled)
Disclaimer: Modifying the registry can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. We cannot guarantee that problems resulting from modifications to the registry can be solved. Use the information provided at your own risk.
