    Hi,
    I've had this question bug me for quite a while now, and just remember that I should try to find an answer to it, lol. I decided to come here first to seek my fabled answers. Being a download freak on 56k, I need to know this so I can optimise my downloading experience.
    Does uploading a file at the same time as downloading a file affect upload/download performance?

    Thanks.

    yep. uploading and downloading have affect at each other. so if you do bout at the same time the will go slower

    There's not much tweaking to do on a 56K really... It's just sh*t slow regardless...
