Control Panel - Modems Properties - Connection - Port Settings.

'Time to live' is a generic term - in what context is it being used? Most likely it's refering to the amount of time necessary to dial and connect to a resource (like the internet).

Time to live was one of the alterations that could be made by a utility that I saw a screen shot of which claimed to boost internet connection speeds

Sounds like what I said previously - probably shortens the dialing/connection process.
