Thread: Download Speed Or Lack Of It

  1. #1
    Hi, I'm new here and I seek help or advice. My problem:

    I have a d/l spead of between 1Kb/s and 15Kb/s

    I see a Upload speed of about 1500/2500 Kb/s

    Is this normal?

    My setup is a LAN connection not unlikely to what you might encounter at a school.
    What it means is about 200 users and a router between the network and the ISP.

    Type of the router unknown (imposible to get info on that one because of excesive

    If there is something I can do to improve my d/l speed I'll be very grateful, and I'm willing to give all the information needed for whoever is willing to help to understand the nature of my setup.

    Sorry if I don't make sense but as I said, I'm new at this...

    Thank you in advance

    well if you're on a uni connection then they are blocking ports most likely
    have you ran a Shields up test
    find out what open and use that port, try different p2p's as kazaa sucks
    bittorrent/mirc/emule are great
    ask around, you're not the only person with this problem, find out what other have done (if you live in a dorm)
    know what I mean, vern

    That was fast!!

    Thank you. I didn't explain myself. I'm on a LAN not unlike wat it's found at a school or university. I'm not conecting from a learning or work center. It is just
    a comunal setup at a very reasonable price. The downside being the problems I'm having geting a decent d/l rate or when using an Internet radio; incesant buffering.
    So, you see, there is nobody to ask for help at my end. I used the Gipson's PA, and it found my machine in stealth mode.
    The firewall at my computer is Kerio Personal Firewall. Any chances of modifying
    it to get better results? I already gave permission for KL access (four green tick
    I asume that my problem is port related. Is there anyway to isolate the problem?

    Thanks again

    Maybe your uploads are choking your download speeds

    Read about this somewhere

    Try LOWERING your upload speed and see if that works
