    Keen Contrast between real Transfer rate and in-use transfer rate

    Hello every body

    I have an internet connection :

    512 kbs
    ISP provider is Shatel (I'm from Iran)
    and my modem is TP-Link 8811 connected to my PC via LAN cable.

    In connection status dialog box I see for example 500 kbs is recieving speed but when i start downloading something using firefox it deals most usually with speed around 10-20 kbs!

    I have installed NetWorx to see all incidents related to monitor my transfers and something too interesting has happened:

    In this software it started to count the amount of my transfer from the moment of running it, and after a quarter of hour it showed 50 mg received while my download bar just had received less than half of that amount! and it shows my transfer rate:

    Current 42 kbs

    average: 50 kbs

    maximum: 102 kbs

    (and while these amounts naturally change slightly)

    but in firefox dialog box for download i see download transfer rate around 11-12 or a bit more or less!

    i have tweaked all related registries of firefox or discarding the limitation applied by Microsoft bandwidth in registry.....but still that problem doesn't get solved.

    PLEASE HELP!!!

    Pay attention to if it's a capital "B", or a lower case "b".
    Connection speeds and transfer rates are rated differently. Usually you'll find actual transfer speeds are 8 times less, and use the "B".

    What this means is "B" is file transfer rate in Bytes. And internet speed is "b" in bits.

    1 KiloByte (KB) = 8 kilobits (kb)
