Question about Computers & Internet
here ya can make a speed test on different servers to see the real speed for download...cause you might be read a speed that was valuable for one site or server only ...
second keep in mind that the download speed is imposed by the provider and the kind of deal you have with him ...
no matter if you have LAN connection ..the provider is the one that makes the speed limits ..
check the torrent program or what you use to not be limited by settings on downloads..
you can also try an optimizer for better speed ...but they can not do miracles on limits ...so ...for real increasing of speed ..you have to see your provider...
here is a site with a few speed optimizers that ya might try ..
and keep in mind that what you read on the local area connection speed is the protocol maximum speed ...not the speed you actually have on ...

You might be referring to what you see when you try to point your mouse to your network connection - the 100mbps connectivity. This is just the internet speed notification and not your exact bandwidth allocated for uploading or downloading activities.
The bandwidth being given to you is being allocated to you by your network provider and to actually increase this is only by upgrading your internet plan to them.
If you are doing other internet based application like playing videos or music or downloading heavy sites and at the same time downloading a large file, it will slowdown the performance since they are sharing with the bandwidth allocation. So what you can do is do it one at a time. It would also help if you clear your cache or cookies and scan your computer for possible virus infection.
Remember, internet connectivity is different from internet bandwidth. I hope this information helps. If you need further clarification, please don't hesitate to ask.

The 100mbps that you mentioned is possibly the bandwidth size of your LAN Card (Network Interface Card) and not the speed of your internet connection coming from your ISP (Internet Service Provider). To test your actual internet connection speed, visit http://speedtest.net
However, regardless of your internet speed, you can boost your download speed using free software proven to boost download speed. Visit and download them to try:
1. Download Accelerator Plus
2. DownloadThemAll Tools for Firefox
