    Hi guys,
    I am a newbie here and to Internet marketing as such.

    I found the forum useful and members helpful. Hence I would like to return goodwill with a small trick I use to enhance download speed, when downloading from the Internet in general, and filesharing sites such as Rapidshare, Filefactory etc.

    1. Open notepad
    2. Key in the following two lines exactly into your notepad, but after replacing the 000s below with your IP address

    @ping -t 000.000.0.000

    @pause


    (hence if your ip is 198.162.1.120, the first line would be
    @ping -t 198.162.1.120 )

    3. Name this file whatever you like but save it as a bat file on the desktop or any convenient location.

    (eg: you could call it speed.bat or ip.bat or download.bat---whatever name works for you.)

    4. When you start your download from Rapidshare or any other site, click on the .bat file you just created.

    What this does is that your computer starts pinging your IP address at regular intervals and you remain connected to the Internet at the highest speed allowed by your service provider and the site from where you may be downloading the file (for instance, Rapidshare caps download speeds for free users at 150 kb/s, though I am sure most free users have not been able to get more than 30kb/s download speed ever).

    By using this method, I have been able to raise download speed to average 100 kb/s and have even touched a surprising 217kb/s from Hotfile and Filefactory on occasions.

    Best part about this trick is that it is legal, costs nothing and can be done by anyone.

    Try it! Enjoy! And Thank if it is any good!:)
    ------------------
    PS: To find IP address, go to start>, run>, key in cmd.exe>, key in the command ipconfig /all into the command prompt menu that appears. That will generate your IP address. Since my service provider provides a dynamic IP, I have created several .bat files with the different IP addresses that I seem to be automatically assigned and match my IP address to the bat file to enhance my download speeds.

    Well Hardkleenex,
    This trick actually works at the service provider level. Actually what happens is that when you are not using your computer for a while, your service provider (eg Comcast in the US, if you are using cable Internet) tends to reset the connection. This does not matter much in general but when you are downloading large files from filesharing sites such as Rapidshare, losing connection means starting the download all over again.
    In case of torrents, losing connection does not matter as you can reconnect to the swarm and start downloading from where you left of.
    However, I would think this mode would ensure maximum speed in general, including for torrents (I don't use torrents much, but will check now that you have asked), because what the periodic pinging of your IP does is that it keeps you connected continuously. Do try and give me a feedback on torrents if any

    I don't suppose this trick will have any effect at all when using proxies?

    The one you got from ping cmd is the one set by yr router. Means it's yr LAN ip and only local to you. Most likely it is 192.168.xxx.xxx. The one from whatismyip.com is yr actual IP set by ISP. Means this is the IP u'r identified in the vast WWW.
