Network download speed

by kwp4erick / June 24, 2006 12:56 AM PDT

Is it possible to increase network file transfer rates?
- My win xpsp2 system normally downloads files between 400 to 600 KB/sec
- My win 2k system can do at best 200 kb/sec
- same isp through the same router

Thanks in advance for any ideas.

Sorry but details are missing here. You can review if your drivers are current for motherboard and such but then again it could be a P2P application which you should know I will not discuss.

I've found such to not help much and far too many to create new issues.

Sorry. But something I'd remove.
