Hello:

I'm experiencing issues downloading files from Microsoft.com. When I download files from microsoft.com (including download center files), they start out at about 30 KB/s (I should get 60 on my connection.) This speed gradually drops, until it stays at only a few bytes per second for a while, and then stops completely and I have to restart it. This problem occurs with all of the computers on my LAN. Also, it is only microsoft.com files I am having troubles with. Files from other websites, including microsoft websites such as DreamSpark, transfer as expected.

How can I download Microsoft files at the proper speed? Thanks for your help!

Huh, ok, now it seems that downloads from download.microsoft.com work fine, now the problem is isolated to c2r.microsoft.com. It occurs with all applications that try to download the file, including opera and wget.exe.

If the problem is site-specific and occurs will multiple applications ... chances are pretty good that the problem is not on your end.

Okay, I tried it on several other computers on my network and on several other networks. On my network, it never works well, but I never have a problem as soon as I move to a different LAN.

Is there anything I can check to see if something is messing it up?

Update: definitionsupdate.microsoft.com is also doing this.
