Update on Vista’s Auto-tuning: problem limited to hotels

by Bharat Suneja

Ran into Steve Riley (Steve is Microsoft’s senior security strategist in the Security technology unit, and a “hypnotic” speaker with a great sense of humor. His sessions at technical conferences like Microsoft’s TechEd are popular and frequently standing room only… ) at Exchange Connections earlier today. I complained about Vista’s auto-tuning feature and my experience with it [read previous post “Windows Vista won’t get newsgroup list from news.microsoft.com“].

He directed me to his blog post, where he talks about this feature, and the fact that this problem with auto-tuning is generally seen only when connecting from hotels. Come to think of it, I didn’t see the problems mentioned in the above post until this week in Orlando, toting a laptop running Windows Vista as my primary laptop. (However, it doesn’t explain the problems I’ve had copying large files, as mentioned in the post – but I’ll have to test some more once I get home to come to a conclusion.)

Read more in this post titled “Windows Vista v/s Hotels” on Steve’s blog.

I recently started using Yahoos Music Jukebox (MusicMatch broke under Vista). It worked for a few days until the autotuning feature killed it. I had to set it to disabled:
netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled
and everything started working again.
