Hi jayvee024,

Thanks for asking me to be your Tech Buddy.

Download speed of course is a function of your connection speed.

Additionally, you can try using a Download Manager such as FlashGet.

Incidentally, you can try tweaking your OS and Connection Settings to improve the overall performance of your PC. Doing so would automatically improve also certain portions of your connection speed.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

How do I improve my broadband connection or download speed (aka Access Line...


The Access Line or Connection (download) speed is the speed of your Broadband connection between the local telephone exchange and the wireless router. This is the speed that Broadband is able to provide into your home rather than the actual speeds that you experience when using the internet.This download speed is typically twice the speed of your available upload speed.

Be careful all the major ISP's will test your line and come back to you will a max speed of about 3MB (3072 kbps OR 384 kB/sec) and sell you the product on this basis I have never got anywhere near this tested value. If you divide the tested value by 1/3 this would be a more reasonable speed.

For example if your ISP is able to provide you with a 1MB connection your maximum download speed will be 1024 kbps, in reality you will never reach this due to exchange limitations a connection (download) speed of 900 kbps (0.8MB OR 112 Kb/sec) would be more realistic and 350 kbps (0.35MB OR 44 kB/sec ) for uploading.

If you browse outside the peak period your speed will increase. However It will reduce significantly during the peak period from 5pm to 12am. If you want to download large programs or files, try doing this overnight or at a different time of the day.

Clearing your cache won't make you browse faster it is a collection of files which record your activity on the internet. These files are usually stored in your computer's Temporary Internet Files folder.
They can make browsing the web faster, as loading a page you've visited before is quicker if your computer has kept a record of images and other components within the web page. Clearing these files away can free up space on your hard drive and resolve certain problems you may experience while browsing like slow browser speeds !!

Tweaking your TCPIP can help here is a reg tweak that will optimize your registry WRT your TCP parameters; internet caching and simultaneous downloads.

Test your actual connection OR download speed here and e-mail it to yourself you can also set it to create a graph of your download times it will also show you a comparison of you and a typical value from your actual service provider, you will never get any where near this I use Sky Mid at the moment and I max out at on a 1MB line about 900kbps (112kB/sec) they say sky should offer you 2827kbps (354 kB/sec) which would be 80% of a 3MB line.

Smart test based on your connection speed =>
http://testmy.net/dl-96

If you start the automatic test and leave your PC on for 24 hours you will see at what time your connection will max out, the results are stored if you become a regsitered user, this link will test upload and donwload ( this is your line speed) in kbps (kilobits per second)

http://www.testmy.net/tools/test/scheduled_test.php?r_time=1

when finished to you can download the results to a csv (comma separated value) and import into Excel to see a pretty graph if you like.!!!!

N.B.> Make sure you close down VoiPs and Torrents and anything else that will sap you download speed before you do this test also I recommend rebooting your router to gain the optimum results

How to increase internet speed ??


People will advice you to use softwares such as boosters to increase speed, but believe me it wont considerably increase your speed, you can check your internet speed ( http://www.ip-details.com/internet-speed-test/ ) before and after installing such softwares, instead the only way to increase the speed is by you subscribing to a higher speed

hmm...

Use a fast browser...

Try Wyzo from Mozilla Corp.

Also, clean your machine for TEMP files and viruses.

Run a full system scan every weekend to ensure full security.

Use freeware tools:

www.ccleaner.com
www.revouninstaller.com
MalwareBytes antimalware
Use Norton (Symantec) Free Scan:

How to increase my internet/downloading speed?


More than likely, the 460.8 figure is in kiloBITS per second, which means your downloads measured in kiloBYTES per second will be at a maximum, 57.6, which is still obviously higher than you are getting. One thing to consider is that you might not be in an area that supports 3G. That will affect your speed. Also, on the windows end, you can try this little (free) utility that will optimize your TCP settings in the registry: http://www.speedguide.net/downloads.php
this utility is not a "speed optimizer" snake-oil program that just compresses images or something cheesy like that. It was actually mentioned on TechTV.

then another website opens, then on left side look for download

after downloading it you need to extract the zip file
