Can’t download to my computer at expected speeds…?

Question by siztastical: Can’t download to my computer at expected speeds…?
I can’t download files to my computer above approximately 800kb/s. Broadbandspeedtest shows a top speed of around 7.7mb/s as does my isp (BE) but if I download on bittorrent or usenet or even just transfer files on my local network (no internet) the speed won’t go much above 800kb/s 🙁 I’m using wireless G in my devices and they all have full signal. The problem is OS indepedent so i’m thinking its something to do with the router not forwarding SSL traffic correctly?

You need to understand the speeds you are seeing. Your internet speed is measured in megaBITS per second. Your download speed is measured in kiloBYTES per second. There are 8 bits in a byte. Do the math.

Grabit UseNet Tutorial – How to download NZB files with Grabit Newsgroups for Free!

If you have problems, please message me, don’t comment. Watch in HD (720p) I get an average download speed of 1.5MB’s per second! Your speed will depend on your internet connection. News-Server… newsfarm.ams2.shemes.com Links… Download Grabit here: www.shemes.com Download NZB’s here www.nzbmatrix.com Get rewarded for searching the web! See my new video… http Enjoy! ************************************************************************************ POSSIBLE ERRORS: ************************************************************************************ ****COMMUNICATION ERROR*** That’s probably because you need to get your own ISP’s usenet server. (for example if you’re on virgin media, you would use news.virginmedia.net instead of newsfarm.ams2.shemes.com) so you need to call your internet provider and ask what their usenet server is. You may even require a username and password which they will provide. ***ARTICLE NOT FOUND*** This is because you can only download NZB’s that have recently been uploaded, if you want to download older ones you have to pay for a different new server. Just search NZB’s via date so that the most recent results show up, you should be able to download most of them, For older files I use torrents but torrents are slower unfortunately.
