Furthermore www.speedguide.net download tcp optimizer, open it.

open browser www.speedtest.net begin test, whatever download says in mbps go into tcp optimizer program set top scrolly bar to that, check optimal box. apply, reboot.
Thanks so much for posting this!!! This info should be a front-page news item on the main website...

Me either. I rebuilt my system today with new MB, CPU and RAM I got for Christmas. Currently I am downloading at a whopping 75KB/s. This is awful. I have run several speed test and I am getting 10.20 Mbps. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Tolian, you are awesome. I was getting download rates of 25 KB with tons of disconnects. It was gonna take a week at that rate.

Now, I'm screaming along. Now I just have to wait through the server down time tonight and another big patch. Hopefully, I can get this thing loaded by sometime tomorrow.
