First of all we're not always on, so bumping 20 minutes later probably won't make a difference, also there are only 3 posts in this section since last time so its not like you're off the page anyways.

As for your question, try testing (starting the download and see if you speed is any good on those torrents after running for a while)

Try one or both of them. (they will both have multiple versions eg x64, x86. it doesn't matter what version, you're just testing out your speed)

openoffice.org (shouldn't be too hard to find the download page once you're there)

skackware (its a linux distro, same idea, just google it to find the homepage)

Report back here whether or not you get the same slow speeds on those torrents or if it improves.

1st link in my signature, LAST post of that message thread.

Do as much of that as you easily can, and then we maybe can go from there with more info.

It's pretty critical to know AV, firewall, router, modem, and DL/UL line speeds.

(and spell out what you mean by mb/s and kb/s...there's MegaBYTES/second and megabits/second, and they're not the same things.)
