Newsgroup Speed Question
I just moved to a new house and we have a new ISP. 5 megs down, and this is confirmed with dslreports and various bandwidth tests. I also get 5 megs down whenever I download anything off the net through html. Here is my dilemma:

I use Giganews for newsgroup downloads with BNR. For some reason, it seems my download is capped at 1 meg down. I also tried my ISPs usenet service and it is also capped. I changed the port that BNR was using from 119 to 80, 25, and 443, but all yield the same results. I'm pretty sure that Giganews hasn't capped their download speeds. Also, if I run 5 or 10 connections to Giganews the total is still capped at 1 meg. I don't have the bandwidth limiter enabled in BNR.

I went to Giganews's website and ran a traceroute and got the following:

Anyone have a clue what is going on?

Didn't even think of that. I'll give that a try too.

Well, I seemed to have figured out the problem. The bandwidth limiter wasn't checked in BNR's preferences, but when I deleted all the config files (pretty much a clean install) it worked fine. So, somehow the software was limiting it. Nonetheless, all fixed :D
