It has been a very frequent claim that Windows default Internet settings are far from being optimal. However, tweaking your operating system’s intricate parameters to make the most out of your Internet connection is rather time-consuming. And if you’re inexpert, it may happen that your actions turn into everything worse.

Ashampoo Internet Accelerator can optimize your computer’s Internet settings automatically. And if you’re thinking the program simply changes those parameters following a fixed scheme, you are wrong, because it actually scans your system and checks the characteristics of your hardware to make the best decisions.

The application has a nice and straightforward interface. In this respect, the tabs are of great help to find the way easily. Thus, by clicking on the tab labelled Automatic and providing just a few data about the way you connect to the Internet and the adapters you use, you can let the program suggest what changes should be made. However, this doesn’t mean that expert users cannot use personalized settings. Accordingly, the System tab allows you to specify the maximum transmission unit, deactivate MTU black hole detection and set the TTL, among others.

Other tabs are intended to boost your browser performance. Unluckily, only Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox are supported, leaving aside such popular programs as Google Chrome and Opera. The bottom tab comprises some extra features that do not affect Internet navigation speed, however, they are still important for improving system security.

In my opinion, the connection speed test is a great addition to this program as it allows measuring the effects of the changes made. Fortunately, I could verify certain improvements when I compared my figures.
