How to Optimize your Broadband Connection?

So you have DSL, cable or another type of JetNet Cable broadband connection and feel like a king now? No? Or are you expecting more speed? That's what I thought! In this guide you will find out how to optimize your broadband connection to get the maximum speed, the right way, without any fancy programs or hacks!
Instructions
1
Tweak your MTU Settings.
Now you are wondering "How the heck am I going to "change" my MTU? Well, I can't tell you exactly, since your setup will differ, but usually you can login to your router to change the MTU settings there.
Below are the recommended MTU settings based on different connections.
ADSL PPPOE = 1492 MTU
ADSL STATIC IP = 1500 MTU
SDSL = 1500
VDSL = 1500
HDSL = 1500
IDSL = 1500
CABLE = 1500
2
Change your DNS to OPENDNS
OpenDNS is faster
You use DNS every time you use the Internet. The speed of your DNS service determines how quickly websites load for you. That's why you want your DNS service to be blazing. OpenDNS is so fast because we run some of the largest DNS caches around and do it on our own high-performance network.
3
Secure your wireles network. If your network is open, others may be using it and slowing down your connection.
