I have a tip that can realy increase your general dl speeds(some have better results than others).
If your a broadband cable/dsl user.
Use RegEdit and manualy adjust your recive buffer size.
set it to 64260. this is for typical latency which is what effects most users.
I f u dont want to manualy edit your registy go to P.C. Pitstop and use there
Internet Speed Auto Fix.
You can also check your dl and upload speeds before and after u change your recive buffer size.
You should have positive results with this fix!
Peace brotherdoobie B)
If u have recently updated Windows Scripting Host to ver. 5.6 than u might not want ot use the auto-fix but to do it manualy.....btw there is alot of problems associated with the updated version WSH.....
