“Half-open limit fix is a program designed to change the maximum number of concurrent half-open outbound TCP connections (connection attempts) in the Windows system file tcpip.sys. Microsoft first introduced this limit in Windows XP SP2 (Service Pack 2) and is present in all later versions of Windows. This was done to try to slow the spreading of viruses and malware from system to system and also to reduce the impact of infected systems participating in DoS (Denial of Service) attacks. This limit makes it impossible for Windows systems to have more than 10 concurrent half-open outbound connections. After 10, new connection attempts are put in a queue and forced to wait. Therefore, the speed of connection to other computers is actually limited.
“Half-open limit fix takes care of this problem by increasing the maximum limit of half-open connections. For the overwhelming majority of Internet users, changing the limit to 100 will be more than sufficient.”

“IP2 is a small program that you can use to determine your IP addresses – both WAN and LAN. What this means is that along with showing you the traditional IP address that your computer is using in it’s local environment (e.g., a LAN) it will also show you what your IP address is from the perspective of an ‘outsider’ on the Internet. This is in contrast to the many tools and utilities available on the Internet that simply return the LAN address, which is useless if somebody on the Internet needs to connect to your computer.
“Your WAN and LAN IP addresses may be the same if you are directly accessing the Internet with something like a dialup modem or a cable modem without a hardware NAT router. However, if you are using some kind of hardware router or firewall as your gateway to the Internet, your computer will most likely have been assigned a ‘non-routable’ IP address such as or for example.

After waiting about one minute while the device self-installs, you can make free calls to any phone in the United States and Canada (no matter where in the world you are) — there are no per-minute charges. After the first year, you pay $20 annually for these calls. That’s not $20 per month, it’s $20 per year.

The company says this allows the device to work on PCs at Internet cafes that don’t permit the installation of executable files. One frustration is that you must wait 30 seconds or more for the software to load from the device each time you plug it in. But the great benefit is that you can easily take this pocket-sized product with you to use on a laptop in hotels or wherever you may find broadband access.
