you can use 3rd party software like that, but really, the only thing that will quicken your download speeds (broadband only here) is by increasing your default recieve window.

what this does is tell your computer to accept more packets before pausing and sending an acknowledgement and request for more packets. It's basically like spacing your stop signs much further apart on a long road. ;)
