“I have a very slow DSL.  Is there any tweak to optimise my internet connection so that web pages load much faster ? ” – Sarah

how to speed up internet connection by tweaking your DNS and BrowsersI guess you’ve come here because you also have a problem with your slow internet connection and so you are looking for ways on how to speed up internet connection.  right ?

This is one of the most common problems.  Having a slow internet connection is extremely annoying and frustrating especially when you’re an internet addict and the loading of web page elements take more than 10 minutes to load.

Here are some of the tweaks that will optimize and speed up your internet connection.  Whether you have DSL or Dial-Up Connection, this tweak  can help to speed up your internet connection assuming that you have  a fast computer.  No need for other accelerator freeware or software that  only promises to speed up your connection.  Let’s start with DNS Server.

What is a DNS Server  and How it works ?

DNS Stands for Domain Name System.  What DNS does is that it translates the user friendly names like www.youtube.com into IP address.  So for example you type www.internet-cyclone-download.com in your mozilla firefox browser.  Your computer then will contact a series of DNS servers around the internet for it to be able to know the IP address that you typed.  It is important to understand that your PC has to contact not only one but several computers, so your PC has to ask and wait for response then ask and wait for response several times before DNS finally reveal the IP address of the friendly name that you typed in your browser’s address bar including the all of the  links in that web page.   Yes, not only the URL that you typed in the address bar but also all of the file’s link in a web page.  Let’s say for example that a web page has 1 youtube video linked from youtube.com, 1 facebook widget linked from facebook.com, 1 image linked from flickr.com, 1 flash game linked from flashgame.com.  So,  All of those links have to be translated  into IP addresses by the Domain Name System Server.

Obviously DNS Server has something to do with the speed of your internet.  If the Domain Name System Server is not responding or has slow response time then the loading of web page elements and the speed of your internet would be very much affected.

So how can we improve the speed of your internet connection ?  The trick is to use a reliable Domain Name System Server with fast response time.  OpenDNS is considered one of the reliable and fastest DNS Server.

How to Speed Up Internet connection by using  OPENDNS Server

  1. In Windows XP or Vista Click on the Start Button, click Run and then type in ncpa.cpl
  2. Right click on your active network connection and then click the Properties.
  3. On the General tab, select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)  and click the Properties.
  4. On the properties screen, select “Use the following DNS server addresses ” and then type these following IP addresses:
    • Preffered: 208.67.222.222
    • Alternate: 208.67.220.220
  5. Click OK and You’re Done

After you’ve changed the setting of your DNS, you should see a noticeable improvement in the speed of your internet.  Now let’s tweak and optimize your browser to further speed up your internet connection.

Tweak and Optimize Your Internet Explorer browser

  1. Click start and go to run.
  2. Command prompt Window will open, now type this “regsvr32 actxprxy.dll”
    and press enter.
  3. Now Restart your computer and your IE should be much faster

This actxprxy.dll file is one of the internet explorer’s core libraries and the internet explorer wont work at all if this file is not properly registered.

Tweak and Optimize Your Mozilla Firefox browser

  1. Open you mozilla firefox
  2. type “about:config” in the address bar.
  3. Then enter this “pipelining” keyword on the “Filter:”  textbox.  Then,  look for the following entries below.
    • network.http.proxy.pipelining
    • network.http.pipelining
    • network.http.pipelining.maxrequests
  4. then change its value to “true”, “true”, and “8” respectively.

These settings enable the pipelining in mozilla firefox.  Pipelining is a technique of sending out multiple HTTP requests to the web server then downloading and assembling different parts of a web page to your browser resulting in a much faster loading of a web page.

Hope you learned how to speed up your internet connection,  Happy Surfing  🙂

How to Recover Deleted Files from Recycle Bin

Did you unintentionally delete a file from your recycle bin? Are you wondering what to do next? If you are asking if you can still recover those files after deleting them from your recycle bin, well the answer is yes! It has been a common mistaken belief that once you delete your files from the recycle bin then that data is gone forever. But listen; there is in fact a way on how to recover deleted files from recycle bin before they permanently lost forever.

What happens to files after the recycle bin is emptied?

>

Before we start the course on how to restore your files, let’s have a little background first on what happens to the files after the recycle bin is emptied.

Well, you see your files and data are never really deleted once you empty the recycle bin. Your access to those files is just simply removed by the operating system from the hard disk. The location of the files cannot be read from the computer but in totality the space where the data exist remains.

However, the files can be over-written at anytime. That is why when you attempt to recover a deleted file from the recycle bin, make sure that you remember some of the things that can make your recovery of deleted file$ possible.

Recover Deleted Files from the Recycle Bin

Upon accidental deletion of files remember to turn off your PC immediately. Never try to save or install any new programs while attempting to recover lost files. The next thing to do is to run data recovery software that will help you perform recycle bin recovery from your hard disk drive. Some data recovery software can not just help you search for your deleted file$ on your drive but also allows you to restore some file$ from your floppy disks and USBs. You can recover what is secretly left on your PC unless those files have been over-written.

RESTORATION: File Recovery Freeware by Brian Kato

One of the recovery software that i like to use is the Restoration File Recovery created by Brian Kato.  This program is a freeware and not only works in Windows 98 but also on Windows XP, 2000,  NT or Windows Vista.   You can use disk to recover deleted file$ in hard disk, Floopy disk, or USB Flash Disk.   Restoration File Recovery is only 406 KB size program.  You can download it here.  The image below was the screenshot of the Restoration File Recovery as it scans all of the deleted file$ when i was trying to undelete some of the image file$ that i accidentally deleted from Recycle Bin.

Restoration File Recovery to Recover Deleted Files in Recycle Bin

How to UnErase Deleted File Using this Program:

  1. Enter the filè type of the file$ in the “All of part of the File Textbox” indicated by the Red Arrow #1.  When you are trying to undelete all of the files then don’t enter anything in that textbox.
  2. Select the File that you want to unerase.
  3. Click the “Restore by Copying” button indicated by the Red Arrow #2.  It is recommended to save the deleted file that you’re trying to recover on another partition.  This is to avoid overwriting the deleted files that you have not yet recovered.

Deleted Files That I was Able to Recover

When i was trying to recover the deleted file$ using this software, i was only able to recover the image files that had been deleted for a week.  I wasn’t able to recover the deleted file$ that had been deleted for a month.  So it is recommended to do the recovering of the file$ as soon as you accidentally deleted it.

Hope this Helps 🙂

How Do I Convert iTunes to MP3 ?

how to convert itunes to mp3MP3 has been the most well-known standard format played into music players.  However, not all personal music players are capable of playing digital sounds in an MP3 format. Let us take for example the Apple branded products. iPod and iPhones use a specific type of music file known as Advance Audio Coding (AAC).  The AAC and AIFF format are readily available through iTunes supported by the Apple management software. Also, most of the files bought from iTunes are DRM (Digital Rights Management) protected letting us play those files only on specific computers and devices.

Okay, so you’ve purchased a lot of songs in iTunes but you’re player isn’t an Apple iPod that’s why you can’t listen to it in your portable music player and you’ve been wondering “How Do I convert iTunes to MP3?” Well, you don’t have to fret about that stuff because you can convert those Apple iTunes AAC or M4p audio format to an MP3.

To avoid experiencing this problem again, you may have to convert the media files into a more frequent digital audio format known as MP3. But the methods of converting these files to MP3 format depend as to whether the files are DRM protected or not.

How to Convert Non-Protected Files

To convert iTunes to MP3 format, you need to:

  • Start iTunes from the Start Menu Programs
  • Go to Edit →Preferences → General and then select the Import Setting Button. (In older versions of iTunes you may have to select Edit →Preferences → Advanced →Importing )
  • You have to change the Import Setting to MP3 Encoder.
  • Click OK to save the settings.
  • Try to right click on a music track and select the option “Convert Selection to MP3.” You will be able to play the track and convert it to MP3 format if it’s not protected. If the media file is protected, a window will appear telling you that you can’t convert the track to other media formats. That is where you have to find another solution to your problem.

How to Convert Protected Files

So you tried the first step, but unfortunately it wasn’t successful. It turned out you can only convert unprotected file formats (such as WAV or WMA) to MP3. So, what are you going to do next? You have to options on how to do so:

Option 1: Burn the track/s to a compact disc. Make sure that you’re burning an audio and not a data CD.  Check the setting Edit →Preferences → General →Burning to avoid problems in importing the tracks. You can then open the CD in iTunes and then right click the media file and choose the “Convert Selection to MP3.” By doing this option, you will have two copies of the song in iTunes. One is in the original AAC format and the other is the newly converted to MP3 format. You can delete the AAC format if you like.

Option 2: You can install the NoteBurner software if you have a lot of music tracks that you need to convert. The NoteBurner software is virtual CD drives which can replicate a real CD burner. By replicating a real CD burner, it gets rid of the need for real CD-R discs.

So, “How Do I convert iTunes to MP3 ?”, We hope that we’ve answered your question and with the steps that we’ve given you, you can now enjoy your iTunes tracks even on non-Apple computers and devices. Good luck!

How to Make YouTube Faster – Fast Videos Loading

how to make youtube videos load fasterOftentimes, you will notice that once you hit the Play button when you try to play a certain video on YouTube, the video frequently stops. YouTube videos can sometimes upload at  snail’s pace especially if you have slow Internet connection. It can really be annoying to experience a tedious start-stop quality in YouTube.  We have here some of the tips on how  you can make YouTube videos load faster.

Upgrade Your PC’s Memory to Make YouTube Videos Load Faster

The first and the most important tips that you can do to make the youtube videos load faster is  by upgrading your memory.  This will help to boost the performance of your PC and of course helps to buffer the  youtube videos faster.  During the buffering of the youtube videos, your PC has to put certain amount of stream into memory.  And if you don’t have enough memory, your PC has to use the virtual memory or you hard disk as a temporary RAM to store the youtube videos being buffered.  Reading and Writing data into memory is much faster compare to hard disk and also it will affect the overall performance of your PC,  so consider upgrading your memory if you want to make the Youtube Videos load faster.

If you have Windows Vista or Windows 7 installed in your PC, it is recomended that you have at least 1 GB of Memory.  512 MB if you have Windows XP and 128MB for Millenium Edition and Windows 98.

If you don’t have time to upgrade your RAM, try closing all of the programs that you’re not using.  This will at least help to save memory thus helping to make the YouTube Videos load faster.

Use the SpeedBit Video Accelerator to Make the Videos Buffer Faster

Mozilla Firefox Tweak

If the browser you are using is Mozilla Firefox, you can change some  of its configurations through its about:config setting that has something to do with pipelining.  The easier way to do this is by downloading and installing the the FasterFox Mozilla Firefox Plugin.  This plugin helps to dramatically increase the speed of your Firefox .

Use the Fast Forward Option

YouTube has only just added a Fast Forward button in their player. Click on any part in the slider in the loading bar. The video will start playing from there.  By doing this you can save bandwidth and time.

Use the Pause Button

Playing the video while its buffering will only slow down the video’s buffer speed.  Much better if you just click the Pause button in YouTube and let the loading bar turn completely red which means that the video is fully loaded. After this, you can click the Play button and you can watch the video without interruption.  

With the options that we’ve given you, you don’t have to wait for a pretty long time to get the videos build up fast. So, we hope you can now enjoy watching fast loading YouTube videos.
