    How can i use bandwidth more efficiently or steal more from server
    Is there any mac app that will help my internet run faster? The server here puts out internet to a ton of people and everyone kinda just gets scraps. is there anything i can do to either steal more bandwidth or increase efficiency?

    Tell us a bit more about your Internet Service Provider (ISP)...

    I'm in Iraq. Ther server is called "radius Cafe" its an American service brought from the states that Soldiers Pay for on a monthly basis. You log on and you are brought to a log on page where you type in a username and password. At that point you are granted internet access.

    its suppose to run at

    Rx Datarate: 128 Kbits per sec
    Tx Datarate: 128 Kbits per sec

    But does not even come close to that rate. I'm actually on a PC right now (which is a LARGE portion of my frustration right now) My macbook is on the and should be here in about 5 day (MY FIRST ONE IM SOOOO STOKED!) I'm just trying to plan ahead and how i can get the absolute most out of every little kbit i can muster.

    That's going to be a very difficult question to answer, since we know so little of the service. I would imagine the backbone is very limited, given the infrastructure there.

    I'm sorry I couldn't be of more help, but I do want to take the opportunity to say thanks for your service.
