Internet Speed

  WebGuy 20:41 18 Sep 2003

When I'm conneting to the Internet, speed is always sets to 52 k with my 56 k. When I'm downloading a proggrams- my normal transfer rate is doing down minute-to-minute, from 20 k to 1. But... When I'm downloading files from a RealOne dowload manager is appears, and a transfer rate is 56 k. So, how can I set RealOne dowload manager as my default downloader, and speed-up my modem speed from 52 to 56k?

if you are getting 52kbs on a 56kbs modem then you are very lucky, my advice is dont tamper with it.

I think you have your values mixed up.

First of all RealOne Downloader is probably indicating that you have a 56k connection. Not all connections (if any) run at full 56 k. 52k is pretty good in fact.

Use a Download Manager (NOT Accelerator - no such thing) like Fresh Download (click here) to allow you to download whilst not surfing.

Also i seem to remember the 5 kps downloading was about right for 56 k modem.

I just downloaded FreshDownloader (coz it says it can speed-up downloading up to 4 times-sounds GREAT,). Thanks Jester2K II (change your name)joke:-)

coz it says it can speed-up downloading up to 4 times-sounds GREAT - pffffff. It'll help a bit by breaking up the download but you still cant break any speed barriers...

Jester2K II (change your name) - WHY?
