    The can't increase your speed if you are maxing the bandwidth given to you from your ISP.

    Download managers will help, overtime, with any system that has flakey speeds and pauses, or shuts down intermittently... halting lost downloads.
    They make a difference on Satellite connections, and phone line modem connections... but their main use is for reliability.
    However no download software will speed up the internet connection you have.
    On some systems they break up the download into a number of pieces that are downloaded at the same time... but still that ethernet or modem connection is what controls speed.

    Didn't read the whole thread, don't know if anybody mentioned it, but I use Free Download Manager. It is much more than just an "accelerator", it downloads with multiple threads, has a manager, lots of features, drag and drop URLs, automatic pasting of URLs in the clipboard when adding a new download, fits in with IE and FF real well. And also you don't "have" to use it. When you click something to download, this pops up, if you cancel, it proceeds to your browser's normal download method.

    I've used it a long time, it queues things up, let's you launch automatically when downloaded, or you can launch manually when done, history of downloads, the whole nine yards and the kitchen sink, check it out:

    I'm using GetRight for some time and I think it is all I need from a download manager.

    I have used several of the ones metioned in this thread but the one I have settled on is IDM it has the easiest interface to use and the best speed I have found!! I used reget,Dap and some of the others and the best download speed I got with them is between 700 to 900 kbs and with IDM my average speed is 800 to 1.5 mbs using broad band As far as mass downloading it has been the easiest to use! It has handled up to 65 downloads at one time with out any trouble!! some of the other sites I go to, allot of users use flashget but I installed it on my pc to try it out and I ran three spyware programs to see if they have there own spyware in there program and two out of three found some in there program!!! Same with DAP. Of coarse I did this about three years ago. Things could of changed by now with them. I even wrote DAP and complaned to them about there spyware they had installed in there progam.

    Depends on your internet provider... Many internet services limit the time online, or the amount of material downloaded or uploaded in a given time. It is usually posted in the fine print of your provider. Those little short disconnects are there to teach you to upgrade to the more expensive version.

    Yes, it could be a lot of things... but it is more likely intentional, then arbitrary... and are you spending all your time on the one website?
    Most websites are designed to be low maintenance, and trouble free. If this problems goes on for long, they would want to fix it so their site doesn't crash.

    My favorite DL manager is freshdownload at www.freshdevices.com It can intergrate into netscape or higher, mozilla, opera, and has a option to be with other browsers. It has password entering, Dl with more then one connection, all the good stuff. Give it a try!(Sorry to be like a salesman)

    P.S. It's completly free for personal use, but you have to pay if you want to use it for your buissness or something.
    Edit:You may want to change the default temperory folder since windows deletes the temp files in the default one.
