Did you really saturate your upload while testing your download speed in WinXP? What you're describing is a common problem with how TCP works especially on (but not limited to) assymetric connections. I use the technique described by Daniel Hartmeier to circumvent it and can fully utilize my upload and download simultaneously. http://www.benzedrine.cx/ackpri.html /Morgan _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
