    Nothing. Everything is only going to go as fast as the slowest part. Your end can upload faster than it can dl, and you can dl faster than it can upload. Thats about all there is to it.

    Basically... get a faster connection.

    You can go here, and find some tweaks, but I have tried this and a few others, and the default Windows settings work just as well. The bottom line is, as said above, if you want more speed, get a faster connection.

    The problem with him getting more speed is that he isn't the slow end. The server he's trying to ul/dl to and from is slower than his connection. So unless he owns the server, he's SOL. :monkey:
