Okay, I download tons of stuff, and it's always about 50-60 kb/s. And, then I see the comments for the things I download (mostly torrents but some other stuff). "Wow! Thanks dude. Downloading at 300kb/s". I recheck our brochure for our connection. It says that the speed is 300kb/s usually. Then, when I check the ip adress from a site, it says the speed is like 300kb/s. Then why is it that it's 50kb/s only? Then, everything on my comp seems to work slowly. And it hangs a lot. My space is incredibly free. There's about 100GB left. I really need something to make it faster. I tried defragmenting, didn't help that much. IntelÂ PentiumÂ 4 CPU 1.80GHz 1.79GHz, 512 MB of RAM That's what it says on system properties.
