Earlier this week, I signed up with giganews and have been using newsleecher.
The problem is that my downloads are maxing out at about 70kBps on a DSL connection. When I test my speed on giganews.com, my speed is always 574kBps.
I have tried the following:
1- increasing the number of connections
2- removing my firewall (linksys router)
3- removing my antivirus (norton 2006) and
4- changing ports (currently using 119)
Nothing seems to help. I'm still stuck @ 70 kBps. I'm hoping to get close to 450kBps. Any help would be appreciated. I don't want to go back to torrents but at this speed giganews is not worth the money.
