    You normally won't download at the same speed to line is...

    If there are 183 other people downloading the same file,,,it'll be slower..

    I understand this. But even my providers dedicated speet test (which no one uses due to it being a diagnostics tool) shows way below. However I am thinking my router may be at fault.

    A good test is to download XP SP3.
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

    One with the router and the other without the router.

    My transfer rate in about 500KB/Sec.

    guess it helps to install router software and config it to output proper speeds...HEHEHEHE so now it works. 631kb/s

    No often that does the trick, but glad to see it worked out.

    Should also mention that i had to do a firmware update since my router (WRT160N V3) still was using the orginal firmware from when it was released. Better support for Win 7
