It was not a dream when I saw my lap downloading at 490-590kb/s one day..on the jan 14th of 2005 not 2006!How did this happen?I had 64 kbps connection...n one day I left my lap to download in the nite...But the standby setting was set for 15 minutes of idle activity...But without turning this off, i went to bed....The next day....when i saw my lap, IT WAS IN STANDBY....n then i thought nothin would've been downloaded in nite.....To my surprise, when i came out of standby...I usually used to logout and login again...n then my transfer started in flashget....All teh 180 mb that i gave to downld last nite suddenly moved to the DOWNLOADED folder one by one....n i wondered how's this??? I keenly observed the graph which showd more than 400 kb/s and all the files took around 10 mins....19 mb/20mb and all the 10 files that i gave to download was gettting DOWNLOADED WITH THE GREATEST SPEED EVER IN SIFY!!I'm sorry...but i was a new user to the pc and so i didnt know how to take screenshots that time...It was not a dream again......but only the 10 files downloaded like this and this came to the end of the 190mb data...n the usuall crapppy speed 7.84kb/s started again...Is there any setting to be changed to make the pc stop the data flow for the lan when in standby and store it in the cable...n then when coming out of standby, the flow should start as a whole (400kb/s)???? downloading all files....as a sum total bandwidth??I tried to do this again by standbying the lap....but next day it didnt work....Is there any soft to do like this???

If Sify wanted it could give 1 mbps speeds to everyone, it has all the bandwidth at its disposal. But it hoards all that bandwidth and sometimes some of that bandwidth leaks on to us.

isnt there any way i could get more than my normal speed of 30kbps. even i once had got like 200-300 kbps and it was quite shocking.

I believe that might be due to good caching on their part.So when someone else has got the same files as you once, the next person gets it direct from cache.
