I'm really confused about the speed that files tranfer through skype. For example I was sending some files to the States that were leaving at 2kbytes per second. My download/upload speed on a 512/128 ADSL should be in the real world 50kb/12kb per/sec BUT, I was just testing it with another comuter in the next room to see if it was just as slow but it instead of sendind the file at my maximum upload speed of 12kb/sec it started sending it at my maximum download speed of 50kb/sec, and it kept increasing as the file went on. By 18 seconds the file was leaving my computer at 600kb/sec which is 10 times my download connection speed. How can this be possible. The computers are on an ethernet network but if it is sent through skype it won't be going through the ethernet would it?
