Just curious. I have 1.5mbps cable so my connection isn't an issue here.

Search for the file yourself, enable autosearchmore and run speed-up. Usually more sources=better speed. Also, the rarer the file, the harder to get.

You can only download as fast as someone else can upload.
You can only download if the other user has an open upload slot.
Get rid of Ad-ware/Spyware and the like.
Make sure your system is optimized for your connection (use a program like Dr. TCP or CableNut)
If your downloading rare files, of course its going to be slow!
Speeds vary on what you download sometimes...

Also try, http://www.speedguide.net or http://www.dslreports.com and test your speed there. If it matches your advertised speeds (what your ISP told you it was) then its not your fault. Also, try programs like Dr. TCP, CableNut or TCP/IP Optimizer...all found on either site.

This might help you. :lol:
