Slow download speeds with wget

Postby melchizedek74 on Thu Mar 14, 2013 1:37 pm

When downloading using wget from terminal my speed is perfectly fine most of the time. But when downloading flash videos from certain sites the speed comes to a crawl. I originally thought that it might be the site, but when downloaded on another computer the speed is much faster. I currently triple boot on one machine with Windows 7 - Ubuntu 12.10 - Mint 14. On this machine I experience this issue on both linux distros. But I also dual boot on my Chromebook with Chrubuntu, which I believe is basically Ubuntu 12.04 and I max out my speed there when using wget downloading from the exact same sites. Has anyone else experienced this? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
