At my 2nd location I got 300+/- kb/s on most ftp servers

on BA 250+
on M1 250+
on ____ 350+

Now at my 1st location I get 15kb/s average and tops on 25kb/s
and the speed stays the same. Could somebody *please* help me.
I've tried for a week, tried separate computers in network, also tried different os

I have the same download rate and gateway/modem in both places but different isp's

HTTP at both locations and HTTPS get the same but ftp is horrible at 1st loc.

So on BA & M1 & others I only get 15kb/s! :(

It's a good thing for other people that you get a slower speed. If you get 300kb/s, then you are taking a huge amount of bandwidth that other people could be using, so instead they get the 15kb/s.

The fastest I've been able to get is 70kb/s, and I'm happy with that, because it's a semi-public server.

No, The Tsunami that struck south-east Asia was a disaster, 9/11 was a disaster, the Bush administration was a disaster, this is not a disaster.

Don't worry I get only about 59KBps on the BA server. It's still a whole hellova lot better than torrents. Just trust me on this one. :)

And why I am always getting 1.4MB/s then.
Sometimes only 900KB/s.

If the server is very busy like on the 7000 release, it will be about 100 or lower.

Maybe because my distance is not big.

And everybody's right, it is not a disaster.

lol.
A few reasons
1) It's busy when you are downloading
2) You have a cap on the connection at times
3) You are also downloading torrents or other stuff, you have a maximum speed at wich you can download, so the other downloads or torrents are taking it.
4) You are not on cable
5) You are to far away of the server
6) Why are all answers with You, because others are getting the maximum speed they can.

[/sarcasm] [/being slapped].
I am sorry if this sounded harsh, but it is the truth.

Then you're ISP has limited you or there is a small break in the line

your total download limit for the entire house would only be 280 or so megabytes per second then, are you sure its just not all being used?

and obviously if you have capping you've probably went over.

Err, lol?

2256Kbps = 282KB/s (KiloBYTES/sec)

His ISP is probably throttling the FTP protocol or his firewall is having problems processing it.

Get yourself an FTP client that can do multiple streams. I have the same issue and it's just a general TCP/IP config (frame size, etc) issue somewhere upstream. Basically there's nothing you can do about it (it being the root of the problem). You'll find it'll affect all or most single-stream transfers (such as DCC, HTTP without a download manager, etc) and it's not worth trying to fix as it's much easier just to work around it.
