Default My download speed caps

I know it's weird but I used to have like 12mpbs+power boost so pretty much around 18mbps.. Weirdly when I'm trying to download/patch games my download rate seems to cap at 120~130kbps..

Anyone have an idea why this is happening.?

Cause it is dependent on the server sending you the files.
Most servers like to cap at 130, 160, 200, 220 etc.
No matter how much download bandwidth you have that's all you can get.

However there are some download manager which opens more connections to the same server.
So you get their 1 upload limit X the number of connections.
So if you open 5 connections to a 130 limit server you can get 650kbps.

Thou there might be limitations that the server might restrict/limit multiple connection or even ban if you open too many connections.

Let's cut it down the the most common reasons.

1. Your ISP is limiting you, if there is a download size limit per month, that happens.
2. The server you are downloading on could be busy serving many clients, or has a limit of it's own.
3. Network bandwidth is being used by someone downloading a file, or torrent software.

Well, the weird thing is I have tried almost all servers and it seems to be it's really capped to 120~130kbps and more likely when I check my speed on speed tests it will tell me that I have 17mbps~ish connection..

Things I've tried:
Quote:
Patching DFO
Patching LaTale
Patching Trickster
Patching MapleStory
Downloading Trickster
Downloading LaTale (Aeria and OGP)
Downloading MapleStory
Downloaded an application from CNET
Downloaded some files from BitTorrent
Yes, all of em gave me 120~130kbps.. This really weird-ed me out cause I'm so used to have like 500~1.2mb/sec download speed..

Your router can also limit your bandwidth if it's set up that way. Look for an "Internet Bandwidth" setting in your router settings and see if that's capping your download/upload.

Not really. With it I can maximize my download speed. Normal: 500kb/s With gigaget: 1.1mb/s

Basically it connects 2~3 times to the server.

I have a 16 mbs connection from comcast, and my speed still caps like yours. It's the servers. They do that to prevent overload. This is without download managers. With those things I can get a couple mbs

If you use firefox

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/201

It's what I use and I personally love it.

Hmmm.. This download manager doesn't work too.. It's still 120~130kbps.. Yeah, that's what I'm thinking that comcast servers are capping the download speed and weird to say that they are normal when you are speed testing..

Try downloading 4-5 huge files at once, do you get 120-130 kb total speed or does each have that speed.

Does using IE get you the same speeds?

It could be a ISP cap but 130kb is just absurd

Probably it's ISP cap, is there any bandwidth cap after you used certain bandwidth? I know Aus's ISP does this a lot.

You might want to give your ISP a call regarding this :x

Yea seriously call them. There is no other way to fix this until you complain. There is no point of having your 12mbit connection compared to my shity 5mbit-shared-between-5-ppl-campus-connection. Since my download speed seems to be higher than yours. lol

Honestly I hate companies that have download speed caps >> I mean really, if we pay for 16 MB/s just give us the damn speed. If you don't wanna give us that much speed, then don't charge us for it >>
