TcpAckFrequency and TCPnodelay


New Member
I've read that adding the registry keys TcpAckFrequency and TCPnodelay (setting these to 1) can improve your ping in online games - albeit at the detriment of other web activity (i.e. torrenting).

Anyway it seems that adding these registry keys is a pretty innocuous change so my theory is that if they don't work I'll just remove them.

The instructions I've read tell you to go into tcpip > parameters > interfaces

And then you're supposed to add the reg keys in the listing for "your ip address". This is where i'm really confused because I don't see my ip address listed in 'interfaces' . Just a bunch of directories like : {5E8786ED-CE9E-406E-954E-AFAE622CA14C}.

So my question is, how do I identify the correct directory to add the new registry keys?

I'm running windows 7 64bit btw.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
