    It took several seconds…long enough for me to think there may have been a problem, but it worked. I have been following you on YouTube for quite some time, you have been very helpful with the E4GT.

  2. second way to delete it if you know what youre doing it to just go into windows firewall program and delete the rule called qbking77

  3. Would be nice if this trick worked on Sprint’s 3G/4G.

    wow it works great

    I started taking your advise on some of your videos but unfortunately, when they go “Bad” you’re nowhere around to help fix the problem! I sent you emails that NEVER get answered & I’m left holding the bag. If you’re going to give advise, be responsible enough to help clean up the mess!! People, I caution you to follow Tim’s video instructions at your own peril! Tim says “Let me know how it works” but even if you do, you will be talking to a wall.

    To help people that have slow youtube video loading speed, you post a youtube video?

  7. headbuzz says:

    I guess this is only applicable for people using time warner cable for their internet- not everyone. I tested it using fios and it actually slowed the videos down for some reason (tested with 7-8 videos before and after applying this rule and saw a difference of at least 2 seconds everytime). Is that weird?

  8. Helmarch says:

    is there an update to this or is it the same rule?

    should we keep using this or no?

  9. Kevin Verdesca says:

    I think you may need to update this

    This does not work for me blocking inbound does nothing because the connection is being started and originated from the inside out plus most people are behind nat.

    Windows XP – NOT!!! In fact be careful.

    The netsh advfirewall firewall command-line context is available in Windows Server 2008 and in Windows Vista. This context provides the functionality for controlling Windows Firewall behavior that was provided by the netsh firewall context in earlier Windows operating systems.
    This context also provides functionality for more precise control of firewall rules. These rules include the following per-profile settings:
    PublicThe netsh firewall command-line context might be deprecated in a future version of the Windows operating system. We recommend that you use the netsh advfirewall firewall context to control firewall behavior.

    Note The netsh firewall command line is not recommended for use in Windows Vista.

    This article describes how to use the netsh advfirewall firewall context instead of the netsh firewall context to control Windows Firewall behavior in Windows Server 2008 and in Windows Vista.
