4 Meg Broadband Issues (Slow streaming)

I recently upgraded to 4meg cable until 10meg becomes available in my area and my PC appears to be having issues delivering the full bandwidth.

If I use Getright to download from a server and use multiple connections I can achieve the full speed (480k/sec) but if I use say Windows Media Player to stream a video from the same server, I get nowhere near that and as a result get video buffer underruns all the time.

If I download using Firefox I get about 240k/sec.

I remember when I upgraded to 2meg ADSL I messed with some settings using DrTCP or something like that - does anyone have ideal settings for 4meg cable that give full speed video streaming?
