      How long to downloading Mp3 file

      Hi Guys,
      First thing i know nothing about computers,i just do what the manual says and hope it works

      My question is about downloading a mp3 file which is around 208mb in size and how long roughy should it take to download.The reason why i ask is because i got Sky Mid running at 4mb and it took about 1hour 8 mins to download.The dialog box says the transfer rate is 54kb/sec and some people who know than me say that is very slow.Sometimes if i'm downloading files it starts off at 500kb/sec then start dropping to as low has 34kb/sec.I have a wired connection and my router is the Sky netgear V2(black one)

      he are my stats
      System Up Time: 11:25:11

      Port Status TxPkts RxPkts Collisions Tx B/s Rx B/s Up Time
      WAN PPPoA 409963 524844 0 841 15913 11:23:34
      LAN 100M/Full 547399 470081 0 16195 1199 11:25:06
      WLAN 11M/54M 52667 0 0 124 0 11:24:53

      Re: How long to downloading Mp3 file

      With a 4091kbps sync you'd expect a throughput of ~3450kbps.

      At 3450kbps throughput you'd expect a 208Mb file to download in comfortably under 10min.

      There are many possible reasons why your download was slow. As you're wired, the most likely is a slow server that you were downloading from. To check, what download speed do you get from the Skyuser speedtester?

      Nothing wrong with your connection then - just a slow server you were downloading from.
