[Answered] Black Box FTP Questions- Pls Help
1) I obtained a Cat 6 crossover ethernet cable- do i literally connect it to my labtop & the ethernet port in my PS3 to increase the speed when transfering files?- im currently using a modem.
2) When downloading "files" to transfer over- im downloading files ranging from 7gb -to about 37gb total ( all in 1gb parts+ one at a time). my current speed is about 70KB. per second, at this rate ea. part takes about 3-4 hrs to download, which comes out to minimum 20- 25 hrs total for smaller files.
Does everyone go through this? I mean, does every download take this long? or am i downloading extra files/ the wrong method? any hints or personal experinces welcome...
3)When I DO complete my download (currently in 7 parts) how might i put all of them together to create one BLUS file?
Thank You to all the amazing & talented people for their hard work & any and every answer would be appreciated- i've been wondering and looking for info on these subjects for awhile now & I know it would really help me for a long time to come.
no 70 kB/s = ~1mbps internet download speed which is pretty much the lowest broadband available nowadays. you might get better speeds off torrents it should be around 100kB/s but its probably because the games arent well seeded/ too many leechers.
if you want you can do a speed test online but make sure that its measuring 'kilobytes' NOT 'kilobits' as kilobytes are whats being measured while downloading stuff online.
