Hi all,
I have just downloaded a pdf file , 34,042Kb , am on dial up, so very slow.
First time stopped at 9meg, re-tried and the download manager tells me 
it's downloading at 650kbs, not possible with dialup, but the file 
showed it was coming down at that speed in the download manager. 
(Gkrellm showed it at between 4.5 and 6.4 which is more realistic)
The transfer rate gradually came down to 9.5 kbs which also isn't likely
on a dial up connection. When fully downloaded, it will not open.There
is a discrepancy between the downloaded file size and that shown on the
site I downloaded it from. Site file size 34,042k   -  Downloaded file
33.200k .
Can anyone tell me what happened with the transfer speeds?, 650kbs is
crazy (wish it could happen though)

Many thanks in advance
Take Care
