I've been having this problem for a while now. When I update GalCiv II through Stardock, it takes forever. And no, I'm not talking about it first archiving the old version. After it does that it shows the file it's downloading and an estimated speed. Many times it shows a few bytes per second. Sometimes less than 1 byte per sec. I've got a download speed from my ISP of upto 5Mb/sec, so it's not that. Also, I run a network traffic monitor sometimes and the d/l speed reported by it pretty much matches what stardock indicates. I usually have to cancel the d/l and retry several times before it will complete. Any idea why this happens? I can download very fast from many other sites.
