The new computer i just built is downloading slow.Just built it with parts listed.
ati radeon 6770
850w power supply
Barracuda 1TB Hard Drive - 7200RPM, 64MB, SATA 6Gb/s
8 gb ram 1600
windows 7 home
Browsing the internet is fine but dowloading speeds are very slow.
at&t with 1500kb comminng in on speed test i get around 1.3mb, but downloading im lucky to get 150kb per second.
ISP = Internet service provider
The company you're paying to have access to the internet, some ISP will throttle some types of connections so limit the burden on their network.
Anyway if you're speed test is good (which it seems to be) then most likely your problem is what you're downloading and where it comes from, if the server that's sending you the data is slow, then you won't get the file any faster even if you still have bandwidth available
It's unlikely that this slow transfer speed is caused by your computer
Edit : if not, make sure all your drivers are up to date (chipset, lan driver, etc...)
Also, if you have more than one computer available, and assuming they are networked together, try transferring files from it (doing so on the local network should help determine if the problem is with your ISP or your computer)
