So it seemed only a few of us uses the wifi network of TOWERS, I thought it would be ok to download as fast as I wanted. Usually I get a download speed that reaches more than 100kb/sec, with 5 simultaneous connections via flashget. This is great since I could be able to download large file such as movie avi's just in time for me to watch it at home at the end of the day. However, starting 2 days ago, I think I got banned or something. Just in the middle of my downloading, I suddenly experienced a loss of internet connection. My wifi indicator says that I'm still connected; however, I could no longer access the net. TOWERS is so small to have a system admin, but I guessed there was one person who saw my bandwidth consumption and blocked my ip. Or maybe I'm just being paranoid of ip blockers (dorm days). Maybe have downloaded too much (with all the connections) and could have just clogged the router.
Oh well, I'm trying to be a good boy now. I am still trying to download the usual stuffs, however I now make sure that I use less connections (previously, I used 5 per dl) and download one at a time. This is not my private connection anyway.
