Preferred Solution: How can I increase my download speed

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Few days ago I was testing my computer at: (http://www.pcpitstop.com/ )and everything was fine except my download speed which was only 18 kbs(dial-up internet, 56modem). I'd checked for adware, spyware, viruses etc. and found nothing so at the and I've disabled Spyware blaster and done my test again. This time download speed was 41 kbs which is quite reasonable. I repeated this action several times(unable and disable Spyware blaster) just to make sure and every time when S.B. was disabled my download speed was at least two times higher than before. So if anyone have similar problem try this, you don't have anything to loose!

Alright, I may be totally wrong on this but I figured it was worth asking about just incase...

I have dialup, first of all, meaning im connected at 53kps usually.

However, when I download things, like via download managers or torrents or something, it is very rare for me to get a better speed than 5kps.

So my question is, is there a way to allocate/tweak my bandwith or something to let my download managers/torrent programs use more and thus download faster than 5kps?

Any suggestions are welcome, even if they make only slight improvements (on dialup even 1~2kps diffrence is pretty important =/)

Thanks~
 

A:Way to increase download speed?

Not quite sure what you mean by "5 kps", but I will assume you mean 5 kB/s

That is actually a very good result on dial-up, and equates to a sustained stransfer of 40 - 50 kb/s. ("b" = bits, "B" = Bytes).

Many people on dial-up would die for those results....

5 kB/s is 5 x 8 x (error correction overheads) giving 40 or 50 kb/s.

You must have a good modem and good copper to the telephone exchange....I know of nothing that can magically push more data through the phone line, you are already well up to the physical limit possible.

If I currently get an average of 20mbps using a linksys n router with comcast as my ISP. If I upgrade to an ac router, and assuming I have ac compatible devices, will I get any significant increase in wifi speed? I wasn't sure if I need to get a faster internet tier from Comcast or not. AC routers promise much faster speeds (400mbps) but comcast says they provide me with 25 tops. Can I just upgrade my router or do I have to pay more to comcast?
 

A:Will 802.11ac router increase download speed?

Well i have speedfan and my cpu fan rpm sits around 3400rpm, ive seen it get into the 5000rpm ranges. How would i go about having full control of my cpu fan? I wanna have it running at maximum speed all the time, i wanna bring my cpu temps below 40C at idle.
 

A:How to increase CPU Fan Speed

It depends on the type of fan you have.

Some of them alter their own speed according to the temperature, some of them have their speed adjusted by the motherboard.

How many wires run into your fan? If it's three wires then there is no way to control its speed. If it's four wires then connecting the speed control wire to +5V should do the trick.

Dear Friends;

I connect with internet through my wireless phoneset which speed is 230.4kbps. If I want to increase the speed of internet, should I change the internet service provider or the RAM of PC has also influence on internet speed.

Sorry if I could not explain well and sorry for my lack of basic knowledge.
 

A:How can I increase the internet speed?

ram won't assist in internet speed. if you are going through a phoneset modem, you are most likely limited by that technology. You can go to http://www.dslreports.com/stest and see how you rank compared to similar technologies, but I would suspect you are about at the limit.

However, I've been wrong before, so if you show up on the bottom edge of a similar connection type, the next step would be contacting and/or switching isp's.

I recently purchased a new computer (parts) from Newegg. My motherboard is an ASRock P45XE,
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/intel-p45-core,2110-2.html
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157143
My processor is an E8400, and I have 4GB of G.Skill DDR2 1066.

In the BIOS settings, I change the FSB of my processor from 333 to 356. Which is 3.0Ghz to 3.21Ghz. Increasing this, changes my DRAM frequency from 1066 to 1138. For some reason, my computer won't function after the BIOS screen with 3.21Ghz AND DDR2 1138.

Although, I am able to run my computer safely at 3.21Ghz and DDR2 854.

So my question is... Should I run my computer at 3.0Ghz and DDR2 1066? Or should I run it at 3.21Ghz and DDR2 854? For the best performance
 

A:FSB increase or higher RAM speed?

You can OC and manually set a divider in the BIOS to allow you to run your RAM and FSB at different speeds. For your given numbers, you can set a RAM:FSB divider of 8:5.

Your OC may also be limited by your motherboard. But generally speaking, a higher CPU frequency nets a greater boost in performance compared to a higher RAM frequency.

A:Bit torrent speed increase

Hi

Bit torrent and the like are peer to peer software and work on the basis that you take pieces of the item you want from people who have either the full file or part of it, in a sense this means the actual download speed is dictated by how many people are giving the file (seeding) and how fast there connection is to the internet, if for instance the majority were still on an old dial up then you would see a slow connection and download rate, however if they have a good broadband speed then the download speed would increase.

You cant do anything about the speed other than to try and get a file from those who have a good internet connection, as this isnt something you can guess at then your stuffed and have to wait for the file at whatever speed you can get it at.

I will say this, ensure your router (if you use one) has the correct ports opened on it to allow BT to connect properly, and remember that BT itself is an illegal method of sharing files and you run the risk of being taken to court for any files you choose to download.

If you check out the below image of windows default Internet connection status dialer. You see that Sent Compression is 67% but Receiving compression is only 2%. What's the meaning of this and we can improve or increase the receiving compression. In my system Windows XP SP1, IE6 is installed. And i already increase the port speed of my modem (Com3) to 115200 BPS.
 

A:How to increase receiving speed.

You apparently do more receiving than downloading. Almost everything that you are "sending" is an acknowledgement that you received the packet. These acknowledgements can be compressed much more than the data itself, therefore you will only get a 2%-3% receive compression, but a much higher send compression.
