    Default Slow usenet downloads - VM

    Hi guys,

    got VM 50MB package and when using Newsleecher and Astraweb from home the max i am getting is 2.8MB however when i use the same setup at work im getting over 8MB, obviously theirs no problem with newsleecher or astraweb dealing with the speed so definately something to do with my home setup.

    I contacted VM who sent out an engineer (after 4 months i might add) to test the line and he downloaded some files from VMs server that did come down at the expected 6MB, however when again i use usenet its only coming down at 2.8

    anyone had this problem and know of a fix?

    quite annoying

    Setup is as follows:

    50MB --> VM Cable Modem --> VM Wireless N Router --> 24 Port Switch --> PCs and XBox's

    if anyone has any advice i would be very grateful

    thanks,

If I get to be married to Barb I'll have total control of Sunnyvale and then I can unleash the shitnami tidal wave that will engulf Ricky and extinguish his shitflames forever. And with any luck he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shitwaves.

    you haven't throttled the settings in your download manager have you? You know limited the speed? I know I do on my server in Newsleecher so it doesn't take all the bandwidth, check the options mate...

    I ended up getting a new modem from them because my speeds were all over the place.

    Phone them up and you can get though to premium support with 50mb and you do not have to deal with the numpties.
