    OMG the whole Internet!!!????

    Seriously, assuming you mean the networking functionality on your one machine, it very well could be the site you're downloading the .iso from. I download .iso's constantly (Linux, BSD) and sometimes the speeds drop down to that or below on my Macs, Windows, or Linux machines. Nothing out of the ordinary.

    Try downloading something from or to see if it's faster.

    thing is from rapidshare but honestly like all the sites i go to are really slow now n i even tried going to bell canada speed test... it indicates that my download speed is only 3xxx kbps but my other computers are at least 9xxxkbps

    I don't know what router or firmware you're running, but if you're using a firmware/router with variable transmit power, try upping the transmit power. You could also vary the channel you're broadcasting on. Literally, try every channel. You could als reboot your router, your laptop, try repositioning it, etc. It's gonna be something simple.
