Can someone else test this ftp for me??

Trying to download Realalternative Player and cant get more than 10k once it settles.

Starts at 200k then goes down and down and down until it stops.

Is it a problem at my end, or does eneryone have trouble downloading it?

I managed to get through the first half of the download (after which I stopped) from the office connection without difficulty.

It stops half way through for me James, could you leave it to download the whole thing and see?

It may be my wireless.

Tried that for you suec with following results (my full downstream)

BUT!

I've noticed a similar problem today, although with a different site, I need to get SUSE10.1 on a fairly old box, and as it doesn't have a DVD drive I decided to download the 5 CD Iso's, rates start normally at aroung 350k then suddenly drop, if anyone is willing to test these for me i would really appreciate it, I've had someone on a NTL 10meg cable connection and also someone on BE* with a 15meg snych rate check them, they were both able to pull in excess of 800k

20k and dropping for the first one. Was at about 17k when i stoppped it.

Tried the 3rd one, no faster than 20k. Between 19-20k.

Sorry but I have to go to work, but if noone else does, Ill try them all when I get back.
I suspect they are all at 20k or under for me. Still thats an improvement of 2-5k on ftp last week! lol. Smiley

I'm fine with using a different mirror and thanks for your reply, I'm just concerned with why I am suffering this problem on that particular mirror =, when it seems to be ok for others :?
