Yes you can surf other sites at the same time as downloading, but if you're connection is a 56k dialup connection then surfing is going to be painfully slow.

Don't forget, 1x11456, if your connection is 56k connection and your ISP has a 2-hr cut-off limit, you're going to need to use a download manager (if the download site supports it).

Use a download manager like fresh Download click here to break up the download time.
