Why so Slow DL?

For approximately a week my Downloading speed has been way down the ordinary, canīt DL faster than 90 Kib/s. Before this i had a high DL speed (T1) maybe 2-400KiB/s.
I first noticed it in DC++, but now iīve noticed that i canīt DL faster than that from any DL page. In the beginning of the DL i can get speeds up to 300KiB/s but seconds later it dercreases to 90KiB/s. If i try to DL 2 things at the same time (using DC++) i get even lower DL speed

You might have any idea what the problem is?

Thx in Advance /Achio

Has your ISP got a download limit or a policy of slowing down big downloaders

Yes, i think so but not sure. If we have it do you think a game like World of Warcraft could exceed that limit?
We dont DL so much other stuff, only a few movies or series a week.

I would e-mail their tech support to ask if there is a problem with their end, I would also e-mail their customer services to ask for a guide as to whether they impose a limit on online session duration as well as bandwidth limits. They will tell you if your present use is within the limits

Has the modem got a reset button, or can you pull the connection to the PC and reinsert it
