    Post upload+download=slow download?

    How come when ever I download and upload at the same time my dl speed drops to 56k speeds?

    1.5mb/128k adsl

    Downloading requires acknowledgement packets, so my guess is, when your downloading and uploading simultaneously, you don't have enough upstream bandwidth for the acknowledgment packets to be sent quickly enough.

    I guess I am fortunate I can upload to someone and download at the same time and neither drop and my pings don't skyrocket either

    Cool

    but it took a lot of fine tuning to get it that way

    Another question I have is how come when I download or upload from/to multiple users I can exceed my cap? When I'm on napster I download off of 3 people at 71k/s,64k/s,74k/s=209k/s but I am capped at 160k/s and those are steady speeds?
