slow driver downloads pathetic download speeds from nvidia
Anyone else having pathetically slow download speeds from nVidia? It's like I'm back using dial-up. Speedtest shows normal down/up speeds. Can download drivers for my laptop from AMD at normal speeds (1.1~ MBp/s)on this computer.

But downloading the geforce driver for this computer is maxing out at 12 kB/s. It's like I've gone back in time a decade or more. This is pathetic to put it nicely.

Any other option for download besides waiting 2 hours for the driver from nVidia?

For what it's worth, I'm seeing this today: 55Kb/sec. 20 minutes to download the 285.62 driver, and I tried it with a couple of different browsers and machines.
