Default Download speed limit?

Hi,

I have JDownloader 2 and my download speed seems to be stuck/capped at ~6MB/s even though I changed the speed limit in my settings.

Is there another way for me to increase download speed?

6Mbyte/s is very good speed. Sounds like reasonable speed to me. What is your internet connection and are you downloading free/premium user?

fyi, speed limit is designed to reduce the download speed. It can not make download speeds faster.

jiaz, I have fibre optic so my internet connection is 50mb minimum - 6mb/s is definitely normally good I just happen to be downloading some massive files atm so was wondering if it can be increased.
I have a tropicshare premium account but not a premium JD account, how can I get one?

raztoki, that's really useful to know, thanks!

6Mbyte/s is around 50mbit/s and 50Mbyte/s is around 400mbit/s. Of course your ISP may provide that speed but doesn't imply that you can download with that speed from anywhere in the world

Did you check downloadspeed in browser? with same file?

There is no such thing as a JD premium account. JDownloader doesn't make downloads faster. The limit is set by your connection/setup/system/server. So please check download speed in browser first.

It looks like downloadspeed in the browser is just around a third faster that in JD. I guess I'll leave JD for the multilink downloads and in browser for the single downloads then.

Thanks for your help

I doubt that browser is faster than JDownloader as both work exact the same. A simple http download. In fact JDownloader can use multiple connections while the browser only uses 1. Did you check the download speeds via Taskmanager-Network graph.
Also make sure to increase buffers for high speed connections!
Settings-Advanced Settings-GeneralSettings.maxbuffersize
change to 2000 or 5000 (2 of 5mbyte buffer for each connection)

If you want we can take a look via Teamviewer and find out the cause of this or setup JDownloader. Just contact us via support@jdownloader.org
