    slow video....

    I'm on my dads computer and he says that downloading video is STILL slow even after getting a faster internet connection.... I know that he has an intel 4 processor and 512mb RAM. Can anyone tell me how he can improve his video download speed?

    thx in advance....

    If the server is slow, the server is slow. You can't help that. However if you want to increase it, look up a downloader accelerator, it downloads sereral packs at a time and puts it together. I use wget for windows, but that's just me

    What's your connection anyhow? Dsl, cable, heh T1?

    I'm thinking more along the lines of the AOL version of NetGear's highspeed - a modem and some unique compression. Doesn't work good for downloads though.
