You probably haave too many things on it..files you download websites you visit create cookies that take up space on your computer and slow it down alot.you may want to defregment your hard drive and get some of the programs and stuff off of there that you dont use and you should get your speed back

My download speed for both torrent and direct is very slow


check what speed your service provider is giving you for downloading.
do this by going to www.DSL.com. or one of the other places that check you download and upload speeds.

Slow downloading


the porblem seems to be at your ISP.
you need to check with your ISP and verify wha is your upload and downlaod speed. most of the time you should have 5Mb upload and 10Mb download as min.
the speed you are seeing is more like a dialup 133Kb.

The modem is extremely slow-most downloads are far too slow


Dialup phone lines usually only transmit a minimum of 8 Baud. NetZero's high speed (5X) faster is done by caching pages you have already visited, not actially running internet but loading pages faster on your computer. Check your modem setting, 56k, 112K are normal speed setting to connect. Check your actual connection speed, 28.8 is probably all that you are getting on dialup.

I keep losing my connection plus it downloads super slow


I have the same problem. I have narrowed the problem down to having too many simultaneous connections.I can surf all day long with no problem but when I start downloaded via a torrent or if I play an online game in a room with 32 players, my connection eventually grinds to a halt. No amount of tech visits to your house will ever uncover the problem because your line speeds and voltages will appear normal. Swapping out the modem for another of the same kind won't fix the problem because the issues appears to be inherent in the modem. When downloading torrents you'll have to limit the number of connections your computer will accept.

Smartlink 56k modem


Your speed of 46.6kbps in very good for a modem as the maximum speed of any dial up modem is 56kbps, which is never obtained. There is a programme that people use for speeding up the download speeds called 'On Speed' but a yearly fee is charged, all this does is compress the files that are being downloaded to speed them up.
