    Alright, here's how it went:

    I was downloading some demo and playing one of my favourite online games when I suddenly lost my connection! Usually, this problem is fixed within a second or two, and I can safely re-connect to my game server, but this didn't happen. I then closed the game, and attempted to quickly fix this problem by using the winsock fix thingy-majigy. And it worked...

    THOUGH.

    When I opened my IE browser, it took a little longer than usual. Also, when I resumed my download, it was at a speed (roughly) 4 times slower--90kbs/sec instead of 400kbs/sec.

    How did this ever manage to happen? I'd appreciate some insight.

    Thanks,
    Me.

    What site were you downloading from? Does the slow download occur on all sites?

    Oh, I was downloading from a certain download client. I found that it wasn't biased to that program by attempting to download something else, which proved to have an exponentially slower speed.

    Though, for some strange reason, the download speed has steadily risen 200kbs/sec only recently--minutes ago.

    Sorry for inconvenience!

    I suspect this is an ISP issue anyway. :)
