Internet Connection Speed, DL Speed...

By cyberghost_1 ·
Would anyone recommend a Prog or a tweaking method to speeding up my Internet Connection, and speeding up my downloading speed? This is what I have: Win98, 64Mb RAM, Celeron 700MHz (slow I know...8P) 68Kbps Cable Modem (Motorola SurfBoard.) Is there a way to speed up the DL rate without using a Prog? As well as my PC's speed?

Hi

I recommend you use a program like GetRight to enhance downloads from the internet. You can find it at www.download.com

Adding another 64 to 128MB of RAM will make a big difference.

It will speed up your PC noticeably.

If you have a lot of software running, you may not have enough free resources to allow downloads to happen at full speed.

Next, your PC may have spy-ware and other software that is hogging your bandwidth.

Download and run AdAware www.lavasoft.de
and / or SpyBot Search and Destroy
www.download.com

How do you connect to the modem?
USB? or LAN?
If USB, check for updated USB drivers for your motherboard.

Thanks A Lot!!!! Helped me a lot. One question, my cable modem has a 68Kbps advertised connection. I am DLing at an average of 6.34 Kb/s to 7.54 KB/s. Is this right? At the beginning of each DL it starts at about 63 KB/s then slows down. I installed and ran AdWare, It detected over 700 occurances. Most of which are Data Miners and Malware. Some of these I do use though, and I had no idea they were SpyWare. Comments please.....
