I figured it out and got it fixed!! I found a program from Intel that checked my network connection and drivers and used it to update my driver. I'm getting download speeds from around 3.6 Mb up to 5.0 Mb.


Glad we could help 😎

This problem got me interested in the technical/engineering basics of what is going on. I have started to study Microsoft's Windows Internals book. Good thing I'm retired: my curiosity eats up a LOT of time...

I found a couple of other things that helps downloading the files I'm talking about:


1) Adjust the Firefox Config File. This is a little tricky and requires a certain level of knowledge and experience. Be Careful!

2) On Free Download Manager:  a. After the download starts right-click on the file icon and change the Priority to HIGH. You can do this for every iten shown. b. Since most ISPs offer better download speed at night, you can use the schedualer feature. c. Configure the download settings of the FDM.
