6. Changing the download speed:
  • High - 100% of full speed.
  • Medium - 50% of full speed.
  • Low - 25% of full speed.
Tip: Some servers have a negative attitude towards reducing download speeds (delays between receiving packets to reduce download speed). If you encounter a file download error at a lower download speed, try to restore the full download speed. AntDM often recognizes such a problem on its own and restores the maximum download speed of the file.
