    The download speed from the Google Chrome browser was 20-30 kB/s. Now it's freaking 1.1-1.7 MB/s.

    And this is from a foreign download link. Why isn't this an essential?

    Oh and as I'm posting, it's at 30 percent done ^_^

    I'm downloading the Chinese version of Dungeon Fighter Online. I've always wanted to play on a foreign MMORPG(already playing a foreign MMOFPS :P)

    It said it was gonna take a day to finish, but then the website recommended I get Flashget and sure enough, I listened and am getting good results! Currently at 66 percent ^_^

    The situation you listed is not normal, actually. If your connection can support ~1MB/sec from a host, then you should be getting that through any software.

    You don't have a proxy set up in chrome, do you? Public proxies slow things down.

    Not really on topic, but if you want to play a foreign MMO...go with Phantasy Star Online 2.
    Epic game, and doesn't have an equally good or better English counterpart already like DFO.

    The link I am using is from the other side of the world. My download speed IS normally 1-2 MB/s, but with this link it was giving me 20-30 kB/s. No, I don't have a proxy setup on Chrome.

    The joys of parallel downloading.
    This is why is use Free Download Manager to grab shit of FTPs. (Sadly, the Opera integration has been broken since Opera v10 :/)

    Oh, right, flashget does the whole split-download thing, which can get around single-connection limits set by the server.
