question about DSL, file transfer and browsing - 08/22/04 02:37 PM

Is there a reason that my web broswer using DSL is much much slower when im doing a file transfer over AIM?<br>Should it be that much slower? Its going slower than 56k, atleast it seems.<br>Is that because all the speed is going to the file transfer?<br>I have a G5 now and I dont think it did it this bad on my G4.

obviously your bandwidth will be split between the two processes.<br><br>

But it never seemed to go this slow before when I had a G4.<br>Hmm.<br><br>

Is there a setting on AIM to throttle bandwidth or be more "nice" in the background?<br><br>What about iChat? Have you tried file transfer using that?<br><br>
