    Its seems a service installed to my network adapter but why? What does it do.

    I uninstalled it only to discover problems with some sites.

    Hello,
    I really have no idea why this makes such a problem.
    Is this also an nlited Windows? Are you using QoS for your adapter?
    Could you please post a screenshot of your network adapter properties...

    Hello,
    Try disabling the lltd but enabling qos, see if it works.
    Install the qos manually.
    Cheers,
    Mrk

    I couldnt install QoS since its removed, so I tried something else:

    I uninstalled LLTD and teh VMWare Protocol (I wont be using it atm) and then installed cFosSpeed. So far no problems (quick reply seems a lil slow tho). Weird o_O

    Hello,
    More than weird. But again, since this is a custom Windows, anything is possible. Only the God of Cyberia knows what little dll or something might be missing.

    Welcome to VISTA ! :D I think its something that really isn't needed, I know for a fact XP don't have nothing like it. That being said I wish I knew what the real purpose is for having such a service........................................

    LLTD enables device discovery. I had to install LLTD to the xp machines so that they would show on my network with vista comps that use it.
