I'm using Astraweb (EU SSL Server), Alt-Binz and Newzbin to get my NZBs. My ISP is Virgin Media (UK) cable and I have a 10meg connection. I'm using a Linksys WRT54GL router with Tomato software.
When I start downloading it starts off at my max 1 MB/s. However, it usually drops off and caps at just under 300 kb/s after about 10mins. A few hours later, it might pick up again and reach peak speeds but then drop back. I usually leave my downloads on when I'm not around but I suspect this pattern continues. 1 MB/s - drop to 300 kb/s....few hours pass... 1 MB/s - drop to 300 kb/s, etc, etc.
Is this to do with peak times or is VM throttling my downloads. Or alternatively is there any settings that I may have overlooked in Alt-Binz / router?
Any help much appreciated!
