you can only download as fast as your connection allows, if something is reporting speeds of faster than your caps, it is wrong.

the real reason for download managers is for resume and que

sometimes I have 50 downloads going at one time.

I set the manager to only allow 1 download at a time, everything else is downloaded in order fromt the que.

this way, I can still shave bandwidth for surfing, and have my downoads completed by the time I'm done on the internet.

I like using FlashGet 0.96 or 1.1 because one tweak of the registry and I can download from 30 connections/sources at the same time.
This tweak doesn't work with later versions of Flashget though. Haven't tried the tweak on 1.4 onwards though.

i have been using Download Mage for about 2yrs and there is nothing better in my opinion. no spyware and it has all the features you need. the only bad thing, and it's a major one, is that it is no longer supported.

Using KB might help others compare figures. :p
300/8 = 37.5KB/s

Depending on the server itself, I can get up to 52KB/s.

I use getright. Only for big dl's I must add. I use IE for stuff 40 meg or less. As for speeds, when on dial up I had 20k dialup, download accelerator would tell me I was downloading at 75k sometimes. I can't see any download being faster than your maximum connection speed.

Most probably precached.

Most of the time though whats slowing you down isn't your internet connection its the person your downloading from.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
