the broadband speed you are using controls your download rate. on my NTL750kb connection i get a download speed of around 82kb/s maximum... through winmx however its unusual to get more than about 25-30kb/s though i have had 60 at one time or another.

the only settings i know of are the download/upload bandwidth throttles though i leave both mine unticked.

if you have slower broadband connection ie. 128kb/s then you could throttle down the upload to between 5000 & 10000 to reserve the bandwidth for downloading, but remember that your upload is ALWAYS a quarter of your broadband speed.

good luck and happy winmxing, watch for virus/scripts etc, make sure you have an upto date virus checker.
