my internet provider is tiscali broadband and i am trying to download music,films etc. i have little or no trouble downloading small files like a single mp3 track through limewire but when i use programs like comet,e-mule or azureus to download a whole album or film my download speeds drop to less than 20 kbs.
do i need to re-configure my wireless router in some way to gain a higher connection speed.

or am i just being right royaly ripped off by tiscali and its them slowing my speeds

I was with Tiscali's "up to 8M" until a few months ago and I downloaded 'Downloader Accelerator Plus'. It's superbly fast and even gives a choice of where you might want to download to. Also, it's free.
