Greetings!

I have 5 WinXP computers on a home LAN; one has a DSL connection that it shares with the others using Window's Internet Connection Sharing.

I'd like to try applying the patches from www.speedguide.net that presumably increase my internet connect speed, but I can't find one piece of info that I need: Should they be applied just to the computer that has the DSL connection, or to all the computers?

Seemed an unnecessary purchase, since I had an old Celeron machine lying around. Now it acts as a router, serves two printers, acts as a file server for my FTP site, and handles fax and telephone answering machine duties.

I have DSL also. With Win 98, the patch at Speedguide.net made a big difference.
Using WinME, Win 2000 Pro and Win XP Pro, never needed a patch. I tried it with ME but only made about 20kbps difference.
The later O/S's seem more attuned to High Speed connections.
If your going to do a patch, the host machine would be the first one to do. Most of the patches have an undo if I'm not mistaken. You can try and if it doesn't help, undo the patch.
