View Full Version : HP ftp utterly slow ...

23-05-2011, 11:03 AM
Every time I want to download a driver from their ftp is painfully slow.

Has anyone experience this?

Can you post a link to the driver/site.

What are you using to download the driver, Web Browser (which one) or a ftp program ?

Did some downloads from HP this morning and it was Ok here.

Try another browser. What browser are you using

Might be something holding it up on your PC, whats your Internet connection speed like on other downloads. Just tried it in IE9 & FF, came through between 278 KB/sec & 159KB/sec, on both (up and down a bit) Tried it in opera, 68 KB/sec.

385.3Kb/s for me (opera).

The HP download sites are rate limited to 1Mbps when they are getting hammered or (in my experience) under any kind of load!!!

I came across the same issue when trying to download their proprietary drivers.

Our HP account manager confirmed this after our networks team found no issues with our Internet connection.

My others downloads are fine, just HP sites. I've tried IE9 and FF4 with similar results.

I just tried this morning, and speed is a lot better, averaging 90KB/sec ~
