Hi, my setup is laptop + mobile wireless PCMCIA card, and the cost of
being connected to the internet is very expensive - about 4 euros or 6
dollars per MB.
When you click on the internet connection icon in the taskbar (Windows
2000 Prof) you can check how much data has been sent and received in
the current session.
My question is this: why does my browser send out so many KB each time
it jumps to a new page? All you have done is typed in a new URL or
clicked on a link yet it seems to take 10-20KB in SENT data for each
new webpage browsed, and all the time the wireless telephone company is
charging for this.
I'd like find a way to stop so much data being sent out each time.
Thanks in advance
Re: How to Optimize browser settings with roaming wireless connection?
That's fairly normal -- there's a good deal of browser interaction when
loading webpages, such as requesting images, especially when running
1. Remove all browser plugins.
3. Turn off image loading
4. Remove any Active Desktop items.
5. Turn off automatic Windows and other software updates.
6. Scan your computer for viruses and spyware.
