Default Download problem...

When my downloads start they begin at 200kb a second (my conection is supposed to be 512) then they repidly go down all they way to 30kb and stay at that. Why is it so slow?

Is it all Dloads? Or just one certain server you are trying to Dload from?

Almost all internet connections, whether dial-up or broadband, will start at very high transfer speeds and then settle down to what your limit is. You say you have a 512 connection. This means your download speed is 512 kilobits/second....not 512 kilobytes/second. 512 kilobits/second = 64 kilobytes/second. You're getting a rate of 30 kilobytes /second. While that's slower than what your connection is rated, there is rarely a time when a connection transfers at its max. I hope all of that made sense!!!

Edit: however, if your rated speed is 512 kilobytes/second, then it could be several things. I would try a new telephone line or cable cord(depending what type of broadband you have). If that doesn't work, try another ethernet cable. If that doesn't work, you could have a problem with your broadband modem.
