gpedit.msc not found in Windows 7 Home Premium

I want to perform a simple tweak to increase bandwidth which involves accessing the Group Policy menu,
My research has determined that it's simply not included in Windows 7 Home Premium but that there may be a way to accomplish the same thing through the registry.
Does anyone know how this may be done?

Regards,

Tplayer

I don't think gpedit.msc is available in Home Premium as you don't have any GPOs pushed to your computer.

However, you might find what you are trying to do in Windows Registry or secpol.msc

Quote from http://www.computerperformance.co.uk/windows7/windows7_group_policy.htm:

"The problem is that although you type precisely gpedit.msc Windows 7 cannot find gpedit.msc.  The most likely cause is that you have the Home Premium edition.  It's most disappointing that you can only find gpedit.msc in the Ultimate, Professional (old Business) and Enterprise editions, and not in the Home Premium or Basic editions."

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

This is the known limitation of your windows edition.

To All,
I kind of new already that it wasn't available with 7 home premium but I was hoping there was some other way to accomplish the same thing. I want to increase my bandwidth by 20% by enabling the limt resevable bandwidth and changing it to zero.
Can any of you guys come up with a way to do this without going through the same process of running gpedit.msc?

Tplayer,

1. Go to Start > Run... > type 'regedit' > OK
2. See if you find HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Psched
3. If you find it, set NonBestEffortLimit to the value '0' if you want to set to 0.

The QoS Service have to be running.

You could also have a look here: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\Psched\Parameters\Adapters

You have to go through all your network adapters, though.

As for another note, I am most certainly sure this is not available for you.

Microsoft publishes an Excel spreadsheet that contains all of the GPO setting  and their corresponding registry keys.   I find it a very helpful tool in diagnosing what a GPO has actually done to the registry.  
You should be able to use this documentation to figure out where a gpedit.msc item makes changes in the registry.

Just a note... there is a lot of misleading information on the net about the "limit reservable bandwidth" option.
The most reliable sources indicate that changes to the QoS Reserved Bandwidth Limit has no effect in increasing your total available bandwidth.  QoS was never designed to reserve any bandwidth unless an application that is QoS aware (like a media player) asks for it.   So, if will typically have no effect on downloading files, playing games, surfing the net, etc.
... remember don't believe every myth you see on the internet.
