Okay Im running windows 7 32bit.
and I'm working on downloading some files.


Sadly they keep going at like 16kb's a second.
The connection speed is shows me in the bar says I have 100MB a second.

But why can't I get that working for my downloads?
Is there some way to open up port 23736 or whatever port it was to speed it up.

Does anyone have any good programs to monitor the speed at which my computer is running also?
Thanks a ton.

The 100Mbps figure is the connection speed between your computer and whatever device it's connected to, typically a router. It is not an indication of your internet speed as a whole, that is determined by your ISP. A router will tell you how fast your internet speed is.

Even with a super-duper fast internet connection, download speeds of 16k a second are not unusual from overloaded servers.
