I use an Advent PC with Windows XP connected to broadband.How can i increase the speed of my downloads from the P2P networks

I'll swap my dialup download speeds using FreshDownload for yours any time...:-)

This works for both dialup and broadband - might be worth a try. It gave me a slight speed boost:

I suspect that the speed you are getting from the P2P networks has nothing to do with either your connection or registry settings.

Whilst I don`t use P2P, I am reliably informed that they can being very, very slow at times; sometimes even grinding to a halt for a while.

Check your broadband speed here, and see if it seems normal.

Remember you might be able to speed up your end but what about the guy your downloading from (or woman) ? they may hav slow connection, many downloads & uploads, or they could be from abroad and so the distance etc slows it down!
