Downloads are throttling in hotmail.com - Advice needed
« on: February 21, 2011, 10:42:49 am »
Hello, everybody!

A question here:

I'm finding some issues when downloading attachments from hotmail.com. Speed gets throttled around 5 kbps while on WAN it would get normal bandwidth. I've checked this from several clients on LAN side, and a few others connected directly to the router. As you might expect, those that are connected directly are not getting speed-limited.  The weird part is that only downloads from hotmail services are getting throttled; others, as gmail, yahoo, etc., would download at usual speeds.

I've checked every single setting and have found nothing that might point to a solution to this issue. There's no traffic shaping running at all, I've flushed proxy cache, marked and unmarked settings on proxy server.

If you have any idea of what might be happening, it'd really be helpful.

Thanks in advance!

I have a couple of friends on hotmail.com who complain about the same thing, so I suppose you are not the only one. Personally I use gmail so I have no such issues. ;)
