That should be enough. I run 768mb. I am on cable and my downloads go fairly quick. I remember seeing a post similiar to yours on another forum I use. Lots of good info. Will see if I can find it.

The other thing is ISPs can and do limit the number of open connections. Mine limits me to 3.

89BonnieSE89, I found several users on another forum saying they could only download 2 files per download with XP. The majority of the answers that came back was the ISP. Check your ISP'* terms as there may be something about the number of bytes you can download at a time.
I also found a link that may be helpful. Scroll down to item#55 and look on the right side of page.

I'm running with Sympatico HSE (DSL) and when I used that link that Aviator dropped, it seemed to have worked.

Bear in mind, I rarely download more then 1 file at a time, however, its a pain when you want to do more. Gonna test it out, but the script seems to have worked
