10mbs connection problem
Posted on 2006-11-23
I have a 10mbs connection. When downloading any particular file, if I use Internet Explorer to download it, the speed I get is only about 100~200kb/s
But when I copy that file's link into a download manager (I use flashget), the speed I get is 1.2mb/s which is more closely match to the 10mbs.
How does this happen? Does IE have download speed limit or something? I messed around with IE once (can't remember what I did) and managed to get it to download at 1.2mb/s but then it dropped down after a few days of use.
Any idea how to solve this issue?
