Im downlloading Counter Strike onto my pc but it's going sooo sooo slowly (it's been downloading since 7pm last night and is only 65% complete now and is usually downloading at 20kb p/s. Im on 8 meg wireless broadband and have closed all other programmes. I know it works without lag because it used to be on this pc before and worked fine. There are no viruses on the pc at all.

Is there anything I can do or try at all to make it download faster? I cant explain why it's doing it so agonisingly slowly.

Maybe lots of other people are downloading from the same mirror, that'd explain the slowdown

its most probably a slow server.
what program are you using to download? cause some search for the mirrors which are fastest

Are you taking over? Or are you taking orders?
Are you going backwards? Or are you going forwards?

If you're using a program like Go!Zilla, I'd recommend turning it off and deleting it.

A friend of mine recommended it, saying it helps to speed up downlaods, but it did nothing but slow them down as far as I could tell!

If you are using steam it shouldn't be slow at all.

I'm downloading it from Steam.

I went on the support site and it says nothing about slow downloads.

EDIT: how many kbps should it be downloading at?
#10
I got it yesterday and the whole time it was between 50 and 150 kb/s, took like 10ish hours? I got it through steam though.

Maybe the slow download has something to do with your firewall? When I download off steam it varies between 100-300 kb/s.

Mine was really slow, too. Check to make sure you are downloading at the correct internet speed.

Steam downloads from its own servers. Why are you downloading CS from another place anyways? You have to play to steam unless you are doing some illegal risky business.
