i have a 56k modem using freeserve anytime as my ISP. downloading small files like .doc attachments of 100k or so is ok but i tried to get avg antivirus (5mb) and the transfer speed is only around 4kb/sec. shouldnt it be a lot faster than this? my connection also keeps dropping - v. annoying when i have spent 20 mins trying to download something. its not the isp cutting me off as this very rarely happens even after being online after 2 hours. Can anyone help? what port speed settings should i use if this is the problem?
