Windows 7: Download speed issues with some files.

Download speed issues with some files.

Hey everyone, I am trying to download an add on for WoW but the download I work on is like 1.4mb and when I start the download the speed looks fine and shows me ETA 21 seconds and few seconds later it suddenly plummets to 23 minutes, cause the download speed decreases steadily. What is going on and how can I fix it?

I run Windows 7
On a laptop of Terra

Downloading WoW was 22GB and that took me only hour.

Do you often notice these decreases in performance?

Who is your ISP and do you know if they enforce throttling during peak time/bandwidth cap/ on downloads?

Which downloader was you using?

Download speed issues
Hi When I'm connected to my router by cable I get download speeds advertised (+15 megabits) by the ISD provider. When I disconnect the cable and connect the same computer wirelessly to the router, download speeds drop to below 4 megabits. Nothing else changes, connected by wire = high speed...
