I typically get lower speeds unless I use a download manager.

My favorite is FlashGet 1.9 (Not 3.3)

You can also install FlashGot as an add-on for Firefox to enable batch downloads and highlight + right click to download.

windows 7

ok, but its not only when downloading files, surfing the net (which also is basically downloading the pages) is slow too,and it was not just a day ago, when my pc had windows XP. I ran a couple of speedtests and they all show my DL speed between 500-1700kb/s,when they should be 3,5mb/s, however upload speed is normal...

speed up windows 7

Ok, Silk there might be different reasons of your slow internet speed but it is occurring with windows 7 is one of the most critical factors. Regarding this problem your Internet connection may also be the reason of slowing down. There may be virus and Spyware which may be the cause of slow internet. Since you have checked your all physical sources that may be the cause of slow internet so should re-install your Windows 7. You may also use PC speed Maximizer so that your Windows speed can increase as usual. For this you can get help from given site. I sure it will be really helpful:
