Upload speed

Greetings everyone, this is my first post in this forum.

SmartFTP works flawlessly and with the greatest of ease, I just wish it wre faster on uploads.

We have a cable Internet connection with upload speeds generally in the range 500-700 KBPS. But the upload speed when I use SmartFTP seems to be only 30-40 KBPS, and consistently so over time.

- Is there some sort of speed or bandwidth usage control in the program?

- Is this likely an ISP problem having nothing to do with SmartFTP?

- Something else?

Downloads using SmartFTP run about 10-15 times faster than uploads, slower than what Comcast "typically" provides, but plenty fast for accomplishing work.

Running XP Pro SP2 fully updated, AMD dual-core 4400+ system, 2GB RAM, 250 GB disk. Generally the system is not loaded with lots of intensive processes running at the same time.

Thanks so much!

Welcome to the forums,

#1 Try to shutdown firewalls and other programs that my be slowing connection (torrent, emule...) and try again.

#2 Close all programs that use Net and go to some online speed test (http://www.google.com/search?hl=sl&q=speed%20test) and test your connection speed. Maybe it's ISP
