unique downloading speed issue

Q: unique downloading speed issue

I have recently chosen a new ISP and am paying for a 1Mbps connection.The problem is that i get a very low download speed of say 16Kbps only when i download using IE. Howver when i use a download manager speeds move up to 100 Kbps and the download gets completed in 1/7th of the time.

Another thing that seems related is that even if i download 6 -7 files at one time (simultaneously) each one will download at around 16 - 18 Kbps totalling to the same overall seed that i expect to get on my 1Mbps connection

Is there something i can try from my end before i blame my ISP?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

If you download the same exact file from the same location via another browser, are speeds normal?

I am using mozilla firefox 2.0.0.9 and have wndows xp pro as OS.For last two days my net surfing experience is going very strange.My page loading speed is good but the download speed is very slow.When ever i download a file it downloads very slowly.The download speed has decrease about 4 times .I have my internet through siemens adsl sl2.141 modem and I login to my account through ppoe WAN password account.Can anybody help please?

A:Browsing/page Loading Speed Is Good But Downloading Speed Is Too Slow

Have you monitored your system with Windows Task Manager while downloading? If you determine Firefox is causing the problem, try safe mode and/or a new profile. Sometimes settings and/or extensions got corrupted leading to strange behavior. Standard diagnostic - Firefox

Hi everyone !

I have an old Dv7 laptop and I know its known for heating issues but im facing a unique situation. Over the years I have never have any issue , only this week I have noticed it over heats. and on further observation I can see that the fan isnt running most of the time.

However If I tap the laptop's backside with my hand , fan just starts running as it should. I thought its some connection issue and opened it up but coulndt find anything. The fan isnt dirty aswell. Just wont run automatically....

Also on very very rare instances It starts itself aswell.

Is there something I can do myself with it OR just give up and take it to a repair guy ?

Thanks a lot !

Regards

A:Unique fan issue Dv7

The fan's motor could be burning out (wearing out). Those symptoms are common when fans get old and start dying.

If you are mechanically inclined and are comfortable disassembling a laptop you could replace the fan (actually better to replace the entire cooling assembly) pretty easily.

If you are not comfortable doing this than a repair shop can do it in a couple of hours.

I think I may have a "zinger" here. I am completely out of ideas on what could be causing and have googled endlessly to solve this. On my W7 Ult PC I cannot establish any sort of VPN issue. I set up my desktop as a VPN server over PPTP and the computers fail to establish a connection giving error 720. Further, I believe it could be related when trying to connect to a SSL VPN server using Cisco AnyConnect I get an error saying that it can't contact the VPN service.

It's not my router, I am able to connect using another laptop to the SSL VPN. I have reset several times regardless.

It is not windows firewall as I have tried turning it off.

I think it is some failing windows 7 service...

Any help/guidance would be very much appreciated.

I have no idea what he did (neither does he of course). Some how he is admin of the homegroup and has no idea what happened. I've coached him how to leave the group. Somehow he left the group but is still the admin. I can not, for the life of me, figure out how to kill the home group, make me the admin, and start from scratch.

You would need to make sure that every machine that joined this Homegroup has left the Homegroup then create a new one on your own machine.

I'm sure what you mean about the Homegroup admin? There is no such designation that I am aware of.

It's very easy to accidently create a Homegroup with Windows 8/8.1 without even knowing it.

Kay this problem has me stumped.
Had my camcorder connected to my PC and was about to copy video using windows movie maker. Everything was going fine, until the usb cable accidentally came loose and disconnected from my pc. WMM gave me an error telling me the device was no longer found and I should check an reconnect etc. I did so, but windows wasn't finding it. and I don't mean that it wasn't recognizing the camcorder but it wasn't notifying me that any new media was detected at all.

I know its not a fault of the cable, or my install, or my camera,

I have rebooted, disconnected the power cable, removed the drivers, all to no avail.

I went thru windows "moron solutions" also turned off power save for all usb hub.

Any suggestions whatsoever would be much appriceated

So. I keep seeing threads about USB sticks not being recognized by XP for one reason or another, mostly to do with the drive not being assigned a letter - but here's a new one.

ANY kind of USB drive attached to this particular laptop I'm writing on will NOT show up in the "My Computer" window. HOWEVER, can always be accessed by entering the drive letter E: or F: or G: (depends on if there's a CD in the drive, MagicDisc iso manager, other usb drives etc) in the "run" box. While this is something i can get around, it becomes a problem when trying to save documents directly to the USB drive in question.

Right clicked on "My Computer", chose "manage". Any USB drives are clearly present under disk management, along with the drive letter they're currently assigned.

Anyone know what's going on here??

Use a tool to determine exactly what the drive can and cannot play. I may be missing something, but can you explain what makes this "unique"?

If it is DVD-capable and won't work, try a live CD to see if it works under a different OS so you will know if it is software-related. But the laser may be burned out, too. It uses a different one for reading DVD's.

A:Unique startup/shutdown issue - known cause, but what is solution?

<<I think this issue arises as an aftereffect of a rootkit virus infection which Gringo of the malware response team on this forum helped me to remove.>>

IMO...one of the problems with malware...is that removal of the malware is not the only consideration. Ruling out hard drive/partition complications...any number of system files may be damaged or missing.

Running sfc /scannow, using the appropriate disk, attempts to overcome this possibility. It's not always successful.

Malware aside...there are any number of "mysterious issues" with Windows that can only seemingly be overcome...by a clean install. I can't tell you why that is, other than the complexity of a system is something we all seem to dismiss too often.

i appreciate helps from the members here
 

Relevancy 51.17%

I have broadband 1.5 mbps
When i run the speakeasy speed test it shows that too roughly 1.5 mbps, however when i am downloading stuff i always max out at about 50 - 60 kbps.
When i am downloading torrent files i know it depends on how many seeders you have and whatnot but i noticed it doesn't matter if i have 1 file downloading or 10 at any given time, it adds up to roughly 50 - 60 kbps.
I even opened up limewire while also downloading the torrent file and it split it up between the 2 programs each downloading at about 25 - 30 kbps.
How do the isp come up with their figure of 1.5 mbps?
 

A:Downloading speed

well, your ISP must be using same method as Speak Easy as you say they both arrive at the same numbers?

But that measurement speed test arrives at 1.5MB is the download transfer time the calculate between you and a server physically shorter distance to you (then your other internet data requests) which is downloading a file of fixed size. So it becomes just math of size/time for your download rate.

Now, all that said, all your file transfers aren't under the same conditions as the speed test where, for one thing, you are using a server close to you. So testing with their server over short distance vs. unknown server far away doesn't account for:
- delays due to routing the data back/forth around the world
- the data server on other end (as well as communication servers in between) may not all be as fast as the one at Speak Esy for your test
- various other internet unknowns... which you can continue to investigate but for the most part are not probably due to your ISP. And your ISP can't deliver data any faster then the speed of the slowest link along the back/forth network path your data has taken.

I have a 1.5 meg internet connection. I am wondering why I donít always download at 155 kb/ sec. Sometimes I only download at 90kb/ sec. Why? For example I am currently downloading something from Rapid Share. Rapid share says they have more then enough bandwidth to support any download speed at any time. So itís not on their end. And I am not consuming bandwidth with anything else. All the bandwidth is being used to download the file. And itís not my connection. I did a speed check test and it said I was connected at 1.25 mbps and that I could download at 155 kbps. So whatís going on? I have seen this happen many times with different sites.

The only firewall I have is Windows firewall.
 

A:Only downloading at 2/3rds max speed sometimes???

Internet connection speeds aren't guaranteed. Those max speeds are usually when it's not peak time when everyone else isn't on downloading stuff. Plus, the internet will usually try to get you the shortest, fastest connection, but that's not counting loss packets due to other things such as interference or a . And I wouldn't believe that Rapidshare has enough bandwidth to accomodate everyone at their max speed at the same time. Not saying that they don't, but no one in the world has enough bandwidth when too many people log in and try to download all at the same time.

Are you using a wireless router or anything like that. A low signal from the router can dramatically decrease your speeds. List your hardware and stuff and maybe we can work a little further with this, 'cause you're not giving us alot to work with here.

Try downloading at non-peak hours and see if that helps. However, if you still don't think it's your connection, there might be a bottle neck somewhere on your computer that's preventing it from downloading at the full speed.

Hello, there is no way to speed up your download speed. If you're ISP is giving you, let's say 20Mbit, you'll get ~20Mbit, and no more.

Hello to all of you!

The speed of my Local Area Connection is : 100.0 Mpbs.
Here`s the problem.

The most frequent download speed I get from (Steam, IDM or Browser downloads) ranges 100-120 KB/s.
But sometimes I get about a speed ranges 900 KB/s or even 1MB/s higher.

Can someone tell me how can I make it stay with 900 KB/s?

A:How can I increase my Internet Downloading Speed

If your connection is 100Mbps then you should get downloads of 12MB/s. However, I think you are mistaking LAN connection speed with the speed you are getting from your Internet Service Provider (ISP). You can only increase Internet download by switching to a better Internet plan from your ISP.

LAN speed is the speed you can get while communicating with other local PCs that are wired to the router.

Hi Fiorello! Welcome to SevenForums! μTorrent or any bittorrent client WILL NEVER reach the maximum speed of your connection. And HTTP servers probably won't either. Your lucky if you're getting half of your connection because most people only get a sixth of it (1MBPS on Bittorrent is AMAZING)!

So this isn't anything to do with your connection, however your ISP may be throttling BitTorrent so...

Open μTorrent and press CTRL and then P
Go to BitTorrent at the side
Under Protocol Encryption select "Forced" or "Enabled"
(This encrypts outgoing BitTorrent Traffic so your ISP can't tell that it's BitTorrent)
Tick "Allow incoming Legacy Connections"
Press "OK"

That's pretty much it.

Thanks,
ZeshanA

Hi,

You really can't increase the speed of a torrent download. It is all based on the speed of your connections, and how many hosts you are downloading from. That is about as far as I can go without getting into detail.

I have Vista Home Premium and an Intel Dual E6600 processor. When I am using bit torrent software (uTorrent) to download programs, it takes over most of the bandwidth. With having a dual processor, is it possible to assign a high priority for one processor to do the downloading and have the other allow me to surf normally? It takes a lot longer to load pages with the torrent software running.

So I'll be downloading a file at decent (actually probably horrible from other peoples view) speed of 200kb/s, which I'm fine with. Suddenly though, sometimes its near the start of the download of half way in between..the internet will disconnect entirely..on both computers on the network. It will reconnect in about a minute or two and then the download speed is gone. It then always struggles to reach maybe 30 kb/s.

I feel as if there is some guy at my internet company sitting watching peoples speeds and when he sees I'm actually getting a decent speed he cuts me off!!
 

A:Ridiculous downloading problem. Great speed then suddenly someone turns it off!!!

I have four computers that are connected at any given time to the home network. I believe have two issues here.

The first, all of the computers connect and surf the Internet at very slow speeds. Sometimes it seems like I'm back on Dial-up. My MacBook (which is my main computer I work from) connects to the Internet with an Ethernet cable directly into the DSL box. Even if I turn the other three computers off in the office I still run slow on the Internet. Any thoughts on how to improve this? My DSL provider says its an issue with our setup. Great thanks for the help!

Second, my Mac overall seems to be running very slow. I have over 14GB of available space so I would not think that the computer is in overload.

Any support would be greatly appreciated.
 

A:Moving at turtle speed - Internal Network issue or DSL issue?

If you have more than one computer, and all exhibit the same symptoms, it's hard to believe they're all bad.
Pick one that doesn't exhibit any other issues and do this:

Register at DSLReports and run their Line Quality Tests. It's best to run this test with a direct wired connection to eliminate any wireless issues from the results. It's useful many times to run this test several times, and we'd like to see each of the results. Post the results link from the top of the test display page for each test run here.

The link to post is near the top of the page and looks like:

If you wish to post this result to a forum, please copy/paste this URL
http://www.dslreports.com/linequality/nil/2357195 <- sample only, yours will obviously be different!
and your IP will be disguised.

Copy/paste that link here.

Note: You will have to enable PING (ICMP) request response either in your router (if you have one), or in your computer's firewall for direct modem connections. This is very important to get the most important part of the test to run.

Hi all. I have purchased HP Spectre x360 and got my new ultrabook this week. But the problem is I can`t download AVG anrivirus, Google Chrome and other programs. I have no idea what to do. Is any body have some kind of issue with brand new device? What should I do to resolve this problem. Any recomendations will be apreciated. Thanks.

A:programs downloading issue

atai Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!I read your post about not being able to download in Win10 and wanted to help. My guess is that you're trying to use that half-baked, crippled, buggy excuse for a Browser that MS forces on us all in Win10 known as Edge. Edge is KNOWN to have problems, including forcing security limits on folks that can prevent downloads from completing. My suggestion is to follow the instructions here to replace Edge with Internet Explorer and see if that works better:  Solved How to reset IE as default browser instead of Edge - Windows 10 ForumsGood Luck========================================================================I am a volunteer and I do not work for, nor do I represent, HP.---------------------------------------------------------------If my posts helped you, please click the Thumbs-Up symbol on the left of the Reply button to say thanks.If my posts solved your problem please click "Accept As Solution" -- to help others find the solution.========================================================================

My computer won't load any activex anything (images or the warning bar at the top etc). It also won't let me download anything. It always says that there is something wrong with the site I"m trying to download from and that includes the windows update site. Now I'm not very good when it comes to all of this insane stuff this computer is doing now. All of it started when I downloaded IE 7 but I got rid of that and went back to IE 6 but the problems remain. Any suggestions?
 

A:I need help with an activex and downloading issue

IE >Internet Options >Security Tab

2 options: Set to lower/correct level of security

or

Define Custom level by clicking on the button then scrolling down to ActiveX and select Enable/Disable/Prompt for whatever you choose under the categories given.
Eg
Enable Active X for signed certificates: o[Prompt (recommended)]
Enable Active X for unsigned certificates: o[Disabled]

etc.

Hi.
Running Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit.

I have an issue, if I download zipped music files from my ISP.
The download stops and looks like finished. But it's not finished.
There are errors about the same, when I want to open the zipped file.

On my windows xp computer there is no problems. The download get finished ok, and the total content is there.

What can be wrong ?. It seems to be on the W7U computer the culprit resides.

This is what I get when downloading zipped files:

[Window Title]
Compressed (zipped) Folders Error
[Content]
Windows cannot open the folder.
The Compressed (zipped) Folder 'C:\Users\PSDR\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\30PGD5XM\TDCPLAY_Queen_Absolute_Great.zip' is invalid.
[OK]

A:Issue when downloading ZIP files.

instead of choosing to open the file, choose to save it (select location if required) then try and open it. If compression methods unknown to widows have been used you may require a 3rd party compression app e.g. 7-Zip

I currently use OE (WinXP) to POP3 my yahoo mail to our computer. Whenever I click on the Send/Receive button it starts receiving messages it already put into the inbox 2 days ago. My husband's identity is doing this same thing although his not as consistently as mine. Any suggestions. These are not message that are still out on the yahoo server, they are items that have apparently been downloaded into the OE pending to be delivered box - but they have already been delivered.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I've been having some trouble downloading windows updates lately with Windows 7.  They hang at 0% downloaded and never move forward.   I used the Windows update troubleshooter to try to fix them, and it found various errors and it said they were fixed.  Though I'm still having the same exact problems.  

A:Issue with windows updates not downloading

If you do not have IE11 then install it. Install .NET 4.6.1
 
Download and install all updates and latest Update Client on this page.
 
http://wu.krelay.de/en/
 
You may find that the updates do not install. This is because the Windows Update Service has already started. You can either disable the service before installing the updates or reboot and immediately install the updates as the Update Service has a delayed start.
 
After you have done all updates and Update Client reboot and check for updates it could take a couple of hours or minutes.
 
If you still have trouble download the June rollup update and the prerequisite KB3020369 if that has not been installed.

When downloading the identical thumbnail from the identical e-mail attachment I get dramatically different results....memory usage-wise.

IE6 produces a Bitmap file of 7.59Mb with a file name consistently named "untitled" which opens up with Windows Picture and Fax Viewer.

Firefox produces a Jpeg file of 228Kb with a varying file name...for different files.....and opens with Abobe Photoshop Albumn Starter Edition 3.0

Wondering how/why this happens and is anyone else "afflicted" with such results?

A:Downloading Thumbnails- Ie6 -vs- Firefox..memory Issue

Images saving as bitmap, in IE, can happen if either of the following conditions is true:Your Temporary Internet pages cache is full.You have "Do not save encrypted pages to disk" selected in Tools, Options, Advanced Tab and are loading the page over a secure connection (https).Depending on the specific cause for your problem, try one of the following fixes:1Delete the temporary Internet files. Open IE.Click Tools.Click Internet Options...Click the General tab.Click the Delete Files... button.Put a checkmark next to Delete all offline content.Click OK.2Click Tools.Click Internet Options.Click the Advanced tab.Towards the bottom, under Security, remove the checkmark from the box, next to Do not save encrypted pages to disk.Click Apply.Click OK.Then click View.Select Refresh.As far as what program opens the images, after you've done the above, go to the program you want to use as your default image editing program.In the Options menu, associate the image file types that you want to open, with the program.After that, whenever you double-click an image, it should open in the program you set as default.It doesn't mean that's the only program you can open the file in.If you need to open them in a program that's not set as default, open the program, click File / Open, and navigate to the file you want to open.or,You can right click the file, select Open With, and choose a program to open it with, from there.

I am taking a class at my school, and they lent us these older Dell laptops that run at 1.3ghz, have 800mhz fsb, and contain 256mb ddr ram (loaded up bios on the computer to see). What I can't figure out is the fact that whenever I log on using the schools user name, the computer takes a good 30 seconds logging on, and starts out with 100% usage of the cpu, although only has 22 processes. I end around six or seven of them, although the computer speeds up, it is still slow. It could probably use a good defragmenting, though it wouldn't slow down that much, right? Also, the computers are very restricted. I know some bugs with Xp that can remove the administators password, but I won't touch these computers further than I have.
 

A:Speed issue

Hi cfitzarl,

I don't know if there are 1.3 GHZ CPU's with a 800MHZ FSB. I think those 800MHZ FSB CPU's are Northwood's C (A or B, donīt know ), and Prescotts.
There are 1.3GHZ P4's, with 400MHZ FSB, some P3's with 133FSB, etc.

Regarding the machine, I'd defragment it, but it would take a while. I don't think that you have time to do it.
Also, it could have viruses, and crap like that.

Anyways, 1.3 GHZ is a little slow for windows XP, so don't expect miracles, especially if they have a normal coppermine Celeron CPU.

Hello Erekosa, welcome to Vista forums!

Seeing that you're having issues with new RAM installed and 'handler' issues; it may be that the 'new' RAM is bad! (it happens)

The best option would be to burn Memtesr86 to a CD and test each stick individually for at least one full pass.

Keep us informed!

This box is plugged into the switch at the end of the chain. I have swapped cables and have tested different machines. Everything else is working fine but not this machine.

Is that the speed that you are seeing when you download a file or is it through a speed test?

Also, if that is the speed while downloading a file but your speed test is fine; Does the download start high then drop down?

I have a dell demension 3000 ( i know nothing special) The original specs were a 512mb ram and a 2.8ghz p4 and i have upgraded it to 2gb of ram and a ati radeon X1550 256mb graphics card. I just reformatted from xp home to xp pro and i have noticed a sever slow down in the computer before battlefield 2 maps would load within 2 to 3 mins and ran smooth now they take close to 5 and are jitterey in the game and simple task on the computer are all jittery and slow to what could be causeing this. is it xp pro or something else. I have ran virus scan and several disk defrag waht could be wrong.
 

A:Speed issue

Does that computer come with onboard graphics? And if so did you disable it in the BIOS and or uninstall it in device manager? Was the Pro installed fresh? Have you tried uninstalling then reinstalling the GPU drivers? In the BIOS you'll find a setting that says Init Display First. If you switched from onboard to a graphics card that need to be changed from PCI to AGP or PCI express depending on the systems configuration. The other thing is when the graphics become jerky like that it is often either a GPU unable to handle the applications graphics (like an old card trying to play a new game), or it's a GPU heat issue, but with the heat thing you would probably be getting artifacts (patchy areas that aren't rendering properly) as well.

Hi

I have recently just got Virgin Media 10mb connection (wireless). Me and my friend share this connection, he has a mac i have a pc(laptop). It seems that my friend can get near enough full speed with downloads etc (tested on speedtest.net), my friend got nearly 10mb download speed, however I averaged at 6mb. Another example, my friend downloaded a file from a website, the speed went at about 1.5mb/s, I then downloaded the exact same file directly after his download had finished, my average download speed was 250kb/s.
My wireless card is "intel(r) pro/wireless 3945abg", it is a 54mb/s card so it should be more than capable to get the full 10mb/s that is offered to me. Any help in how to 'de-restrict' my card to obtain the full speed?

Any help is appreciated!

Thanks in advance

Hi, i am using a zoom modem. i am connected but the speed is slow. on checking the router status it is showing the downstream speed as 1728 and upstream as 448, but when i run a online speed test it gives a speed of 130kb/s and upload as 377Kb/s.On the router by gateway is showing as 217.47.151.193 and the ip is showing as
62.72.32.181.

On CMD the gateway is 10.0.0.2 and the same ip.

Please suggest what i need to do to get the same speed that is showing on router status.

Okay here s a real head-scratch-er About days ago I started noticing some serious speed issues with web browsing while using my wireless router Every once in a while I will notice little differences during what may be peak hours and whatnot Internet issue Serious speed but this is far worse I decided to do a speed and ping test and I got an F on my network that Serious Internet speed issue normally receives a low A or high B I ran a gamut of spyware tests and I am clear there Anyway the real thing that is confusing me is I attempted to connect via a hardline the cable I use to connect to my wireless router so I at least Serious Internet speed issue know it s functional but the network was unidentifiable and I could not get an internet connection but when I reconnected my wireless router and let everything restart I was able to connect wirelessly using the same modem that would not connect me through an ethernet cable I have a Belkin n wireless router and I would appreciate any help available Thanks nbsp

A:Serious Internet speed issue

Are you remembering to power cycle (unplug for 30 seconds) the modem when switching the device connected to it?

What download/upload do you get with a connection directly to the modem with Speedtest.net? With an ethernet connection to the router? With a wireless connection to the router?

Hi guys after installing some new RAM i checked CPU-Z to see if all was ok, and it doesn't seem to be.

I bought some Crucial Ballistix 8Gb 1866MHz, however is doesn't seem to be running at 1866 more like 667MHZ.

I have a Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3 and a AMD FX-4100

Is there way i can force the speed on the RAM to 1866?

Any input is greatly appreciated.

Regards
Toby

A:Memory Speed Issue

CPU-Z reports the clock frequency of the RAM. DDR (DDR2, DDR3) transfer data twice per clock tick, so CPU-Z reports 667MHz for DDR3-1333.

Most motherboards seem to run DDR3-1333 and up at DDR3-1333 by default. To get the higher frequency, you'd either need to set the BIOS to use XMP, or manually set the RAM frequency and timings.

Ok, I'm stumped by my internet issue. Maybe you can shed some light on it.

Ping is averaging 11000ms, upload 0.01-0.07, download 0.2-0.4
Here's the setup: AT&T modem --> Linksys Router --> 2 simple switches --> computers

What I tried:
1. I plugged in a laptop directly to the modem and speed is back to normal.
2. I swapped out a cat 5 cable between the modem and router and speed was back to normal for a few minutes, then bad again.
3. I swapped out the router with a new one and speed was back to normal for a few minutes, then bad again.

So the router is fine. I don't think it's the switches if everything is working fine for a couple minutes. Also, my wireless is fast and then bad again when I tried swapping stuff out.

Any ideas?

Hello everyone, I am using a linksys WRT54GS wireless router and usually works fine, but lately I noticed it's been getting slow speeds and then when I restart the router it goes back to normal and very fast for about 20-30 minutes (could vary and be longer sometimes). But then after that it goes back to it's slow speed until I restart it again.

When I bypass the router it works fine with direct connection, all my firmware is upgraded, getting 100% signal strength, it's not just my computer because when I ping from the router admin panel it gets all request timed out aswell.

Thanks for any help I can get.

I am using a D-Link DIR-655 router on a Windows Home Server network.

When I connect the WHS to a cable upstairs (short cable) I get Gigabit connection speed, however when I put the server downstairs (10 metre cable), I only get 100 Mb LAN speed.

The only difference is the CAT-5e cable and length.

Do I need a shielded CAT-5e or a CAT-6 cable.

The WHS box needs to be downstairs.

A:Issue on download speed

First what kind of internet service do you have, and what speed.
Test your internet using dsl reports, or speedtest. I prefer speedtest: Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test

How are you connecting to the internet, wired or wireless. Also as a side note the slow download speeds could also be on the downstream server end. The number of simultaneous downloads, they might throttle back the server to save bandwith, etc.
