Windows 8 Single Language Slower Direct Downloads

Hi All,

I have recently purchased HP Envy Sleekbook and it came with pre-installed Windows 8 Single Language Edition.

The issue I am facing is, when I download using torrents, I get adequate download speed. But when I go for direct downloads from sites like uploaded.net or rapdigator.net (premium accounts on both), the download speed drops to less than 50KB/s.

Is there any changes I can do that would relieve me of this pain!

Thanks.

torrents, are downloaded from Hundreds of users at the same time.

With the other two you download from a single server.

Easy when you know how it works..

Thanks for your reply. Yes, as you mentioned, torrents are faster as opposed to the direct downloads. I don't use it for pirated downloads, I did that just to check if the issue was actually with my bandwidth.

I resolved the problem to an extent. I downloaded driver for my wireless from HP's website and update the driver. Now I get decent speed on direct downloads as well.

Thanks again for your comments.
