I'm downloading a large video file, and it is downloading somewhere in the rage of 50-75 KB/s. I wanted to try and speed up the process, so - not really expecting anything - I flushed the dns cache and then executed
For about 3-5s following pressing the enter key, the download speed (at least according to Chrome's download page) leaped up to 135 KB/s. That's right around a 200% increase!
Then after a couple of seconds, back to normal. Until...i executed
ipconfig /registerdns again, and the results were identical.
Why is this? I'm inclined to just execute something like:
for /l %i in (1,1,10000) do `ipconfig /registerdns` & sleep 1
Have I tapped into something, or is there more to this than meets the eye? And why? I can't think of any logical reason for such a brief burst unless something is regulating downloads speeds that temporarily gets interrupted during dns server registration.
