Does this tweak really work? Also question about BIOS...

Question 1 Tweaking

I tried this tweak and then reverted back to the original because it didn't seem to work for me.  This is supposed to make web pages load faster but it doesn't seem to be the case when I applied it.  I am back to the following as I write this...

LocalPriority = 1f3 (499) - local names cache

HostsPriority = 1f4 (500) - the HOSTS file

DnsPriority = 7d0 (2000) - DNS

NetbtPriority = 7d1 (2001) - NetBT name-resolution, including WINS

Note the following lines (all hex dwords):

Class = 008 (8) - indicates that TCP/IP is a name service provider, don't change.

LocalPriority = 1f3 (499) - local names cache

HostsPriority = 1f4 (500) - the HOSTS file

DnsPriority = 7d0 (2000) - DNS

NetbtPriority = 7d1 (2001) - NetBT name-resolution, including WINS

What we're aiming to do is increase the priority of the last 4 settings, while keeping their order. The valid range is from -32768 to +32767 and lower numbers mean higher priority compared to other services. What we're aiming at is lower numbers without going to extremes, something like what's shown below should work well:

Change the "Priority" lines to:

LocalPriority = 005 (5) - local names cache

HostsPriority = 006 (6) - the HOSTS file

DnsPriority = 007 (7) - DNS

NetbtPriority = 008 (8) - NetBT name-resolution, including WINS

Question 2 Windows XP Bios

Are there any tweaks that I should do regarding the BIOS?  I use Windows XP SP2 512RAM Intel Pentium 4CPU 2.80GHz, Intel 82865G Graphics Controller.

Appreciate the help! [nerd]

If your not over clocking your computer the no. You could set the optimized defaults if you want.
