I have just started to use Overnet Lite 0.52 as an alternative to Kazaa Lite 2.4.3. I am currently downloading a large 800MB movie file. In the beginning yesterday when I started to download the file I was impressed of how stable it was going at a fairly good 300-500Kbit/s and I was expecting it to finish within a few hours. But after about 500MB the download started to become painfully slow and I am currently downloading at painfully slow 10-70Kbit/s. Why is this the case?
Can I do something to improve the download speed?
I have also noticed that the number of connections is fairly low! At the beginning when I start Overnet the number of connections goes up to about 40 which is my maximum but after a while it drops substantionally and I currenctly only have about 7-8 connections. Is this somehow related to the slow downloads?. Is the number of connections supposed to be that low?
I have a 2.5Mbit/s ADSL connection!.
