What could be holding up my downloads?
Anything already using the network would slow you down. File sharing, spyware, adware, IM'*, gateway type software. The list goes on...
Make sure you're using at least 100mb/* nics & cat5 cable. Routers/hubs too if you have them. 10Megabit/* nic will top out just over 1MegaByte per sec. Processor & bus type & speed ( that the nic uses) also play a factor.
Your not connected via USB are you? I've seen TW do that to a few people too, not good when theyre usb1.
