FTU is correct, it started downloading when you went to search where to save it to, then downloaded itself.

I get 120kB/s, thats supposed to be 786kBITS/s, and i pay 20$ (canadian!) per month for it. Canada is the home of cheap broadband

I routinely get 250-300 MB/sec off of Microsoft.com (downloaded the Windows XP Service Pack 1a redistributable in under a minute) and other big servers...dual OC-48 fiber-optic lines and Gigabit Ethernet are very lovely to have.

I assume you have RAID 0 spreaded over several PCI IDE controller cards or a rather expensive SCSI setup to actualy write that much data on your HDs in such a short time? 250-300MB/sec is to much for todays HDs.

RAID array built into the mobo. And copying the file to disk STILL takes longer than the actual download...

I just noticed I wrote BS. Serveral PCI controller cards wouldn't help anything couse the 133MB bandwidth is shared with all connected cards.

For some reason, my ISP sent me a new modem in the mail. I hooked it up to my router, and all of the sudden its 1.5mbit down, 512kbit up ADSL, for 20$/month CAD!

Anywho, i'm not used to getting a 300kbyte/sec transmission overhead, this is sweet

At that speed the Service Pack should only need about half-a-second to download, and a few seconds to write to disk. Did you mean to say "Mb" (damn picky abbreviations)?

Yeah. Megabits per second, not megabytes. I've seen it surge as high as 4 Mb/sec, but 2-3 is consistent range from a big site.
