What server were you downloading from? Sometimes the server your downloading from is capped on its upload speed. Your actual net speed may never be fully achived because the server your downloading from may be restricting the speed you can download at. The free FileFront servers have a maximum download rate of a few hundred kb/sec i think.

Also do you use a router? Other computers on your network may be using your bandwidth.

Alot of download sites limit the bandwidth available to non-subscribing users. If you think your actual internet is slow, go and use a bandwidth tester such as http://www.bandwidthplace.com/speedtest/.

You devide your line speed by 8 to get your actual data speed so your looking at 500kb/sec as the BEST your line could pull off. i would suspect 450kb/sec is more fesable though.
