      Unhappy download speeds

      My internet speeds are good but when it comes to downloading something it takes ages!!!!

      It keeps saying unknown time remaining then doing a tiny bit more and then doing it all over again.

      Is there anyway of increasing the download speed?

      I use firefox and have a cable connecting me to the sky router

      Thanks

      Post your stats.
      Do a speed test at Sky User - Broadband Speed Tester and post the result.

      If you are not running Vista, download and run TCPOptimiser, link below.
