I recently used sysrescue on a friend's computer, but the update of virus signature database is really slow only downloading kilobytes , his internet speed is about 20~30 megabytes. Is there are any reason why is so slow?

I connect via 1 GB fiber Ethernet. Due to the fact my PC is connected via household wiring via powerlink adapters, my top connection speed is around 250 MB.

The Sysrescue virus database download took approx. a minute.. What was odd is the first 40000 KB was almost instantaneous and it slowed after that. Might be due to some Linux network buffering issues or the like.

Extrapolating my download speed results to lets say a 30 MB connection. the database download should take in the range of 8 - 10 minutes. This also assumes a full 30 MB download speed w/no ISP throttling going on.
