Kontiki Download Manager accelerates the delivery of video, software, audio, and other digital media files to your computer. It provides TV-quality video when used with a high-speed Internet connection, and includes an option for offline viewing. The Kontiki Download Manager is a component of the Kontiki Delivery Management System, a suite of applications for enterprises who want the ability to securely distribute large digital files such as PDF files, software, and video. The program's bandwidth harvesting technology enables faster download times and automatic delivery from multiple sources closest to you. There is an automatic pause and resume feature in case a download is interrupted.
just look for the link that says 1.8.2 and grab the binary (http) unless you plan on compiling from scratch. Once you get to knowing it, things get better. (and who said you're limited to only a few downloads at once?)
there are so many download manager out there that it's hard to choose one. but i do know that DAP is crap. Say you split the download file into 4 parts. now... part 1,2 and 3 has finished but part 4 still lags behind. What will DAP do in this situation? It will simply wait part 4 to finish instead of splitting the unfinished part of 4 into smaller pieces to download.
try mass downloader .... what it will is that it will create a dummy file with the size of your download file and begin filling it with the data from the download... once a thread of the download is finished it will split other unfinished thread... as result ... you'll always have 10 threads or 4 threads downloading the file...
OK I use AOL7.0 & a 56k connection, so I know the true meaning of limited bandwith. Download Managers are only good for a few things like resume on large simple files & queing simple files. If you try downloading a driver using multiple sources chances are that the driver will be corrupt. Speaking from personal experince Download managers have given me a max download of 5kbs, where as windows own downloader has given me a max download of 20kbs.

Ok lemme enlighten you on the 20Kb/sec you get downloading using the IE download.
You get speeds like that due to a "data burst" when the download starts and this is common in small files. Just try downloading a 3 Mb file and I bet the speed will calm down to around 4-7kb/sec after 5-10 seconds.
Also 20Kb constant download rate is not possible on a 56k connection, well not from my experience anyway.
thats why I said 20kbs and not 40kbs cos thats what I get when the packets 1st arrive It is very unusual but it has & does happen. Since upgrading to AOL7.0 & XP my average download speed has doubled except using download managers they have remained the same.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
