Enable the Packet Scheduler feature

Bandwidth throttling uses Packet Scheduler to manage when data packets are sent. When you configure a site to use bandwidth throttling by using IIS Manager, Packet Scheduler is automatically installed, and IIS automatically sets bandwidth throttling to a minimum of 1024 kilobytes per second (KBps). However, if you use another method, such as Active Directory® Service Interfaces (ADSI) or WMI, you must enable Packet Scheduler for bandwidth throttling to work correctly.

Enable Packet Scheduler

To enable Packet Scheduler:

  • From the Start menu, click Control Panel, click Network and Sharing Center.

  • Under Tasks, click Manage network connections. The Network Connections window appears.

  • Right-click any one of the listed connections, and then click Properties.

  • Under This connection uses the following items, look for the entry QoS Packet Scheduler.

  • If QoS Packet Scheduler is present, select the check box next to QoS Packet Scheduler, and click OK.

  • If the QoS Packet Scheduler entry is not present, install it by using the following procedure.

Install the QoS Packet Scheduler

To install the QoS Packet Scheduler:

  • Click any one of the listed items, and then click Install.

  • In the Select Network Component Type dialog box, click Service, and then click Add.

  • In the Select Network Service dialog box, click QoS Packet Scheduler, and then click OK to close all open dialog boxes.
