Tip 2

Get the Most From What You’ve Got: Your computer system isn’t the same as everyone else’s, so why use the same internet settings? Generic Internet connection settings can hold you back from getting the download speeds you deserve. Optimize your Internet settings with System Mechanic’s NetBooster.

  1. Start System Mechanic and click Toolbox » Individual Tools » Maximize Performance
  2. Navigate to NetBooster » Optimize Internet Settings and click Start
  3. Select Optimize your Internet and network connection speed and click Next
  4. Select your internet connection type and click Next
    Note: Most users will choose the first, default option under High-speed or broadband connections.
  5. NetBooster will automatically adjust settings to maximize your Internet speed. A system restart may be required.
