Hey guys,
I recently reformatted my machine (WinXP SP2, Netcomm IN5699 Modem). Prior to it, I had tweaked my 56k connection and was getting consistent download speeds of 6.5Kbs. Now, without any tweaks, I'm getting around ~4.5-5Kbs. I was hoping you guys could help me out by suggesting settings that are good for downloading - as I can't seem to remember which tweaks I had used last time. I don't play any online games, so increased ping as an expense for faster downloads is not a problem. Smile Looking forward to a response,

Unless you are downloading things that aren't already compressed, 6.5kbps is impossible.
Depending upon what tool you use to measure download speeds, you may get erroneous report.
For example, browser's download will start before you actually click to start the download, and the speed reported is based upon the time you 'start' the download, not the earlier time it actually started, so it will give you an incorrect report that is higher than actual throughput.

Aloha! Richard.
