      Slow usenet speeds

      Hi,

      I used to use Usenet a lot about a year ago got blisteringly fast downloads on binaries. I just went back on to try and get a TV show I missed but my speed is pathetic.

      I sync at 14Mb to Sky but my download speed via Astraweb using NewsBin is only 80Kbps. If I download via the web browser and HTTP I get pretty decent speeds, it only seems to be an issue on usenet.

      Really frustrating because it's a big file and I want to catch up on the show before I miss the next one! At this rate it will still be downloading in 6 months!

      Any advise out there on what might be going on? Do I need to check any configuration?

      Gah! Ignore my stupidity... I had somehow clicked the "Speed Limit" button, I just un-throttled it and my d/l speed instantly jumped up to 11.6Mbps... now that's more like it! :-)
