I am running Windows 2003 Server. If I download a large file from the server in FireFox the connection maxes out at 100kB per second. If I download the same file from Internet Explorer at the same time, it also maxes out at 100kB per second. Therefore I am transferring 200kB per second from the one server on my internet connection to the same computer. If I also download in another browser like Google Chrome I get a similar result.
Is there some kind of IIS setting that is limiting the speed per connection, maybe something that is meant to save bandwidth for other users? The server is hosted with Peer1 with a 100MBps connection so it is supposed to be pretty fast. There is no other traffic on the server while I am running this test.
Thanks for the help!
