That depends. Do you want to speed up your download speed or slow down your upload speed ?

Well I'm sure one of the JavaRanch ambassadors will move this topic to the appropriate forum (away from Meaningless Drivel). What did the BSNL broadband customer service say when you contacted them?

Maybe they are just slow to reply. LOL. Get it? Your download speed is slow. (Still working on the Meaningless Drivel forum)

I'm pretty sure the problem is that your Ethernet cable is connected backwards, so the upstream end is plugged into your computer and the downstream end into your hub, router or modem. Unplug both ends of the cable, switch the ends, and plug it back it.

In case you are using a wireless router, you should be able to achieve EHF's fix by introducing a mirror in between your router and computer.

Doing this will only upload everything that is being downloaded and vice versa.

Its obvious that his download internet tubes are clogged. Usually, watching some youtube videos helps clear up that clog since youtube streams at full speed and that helps clear up some blockage. I had the *exact* same problem and it disappeared after I viewed some youtube videos.

Wouldn't introducing a mirror put the left hand bits on the right and the right hand bits on the left?

Yes. Thats how routers figure out incoming/outgoing data. Of course this configuration depends on the Locale. In countries like US, Right hand bits are incoming, whereas in India its the Left hand ones.

Thereby putting a nice twist in the long-running issue of little-endian vs. big-endian. (Not to be confused with the similarly long-running debate about little Indians vs. big Indians.)

I thought it was a northern hemisphere / southern hemisphere phenomenon.

You beat me to it. Two geek points to you

I hear the secret police sometimes use mirror glass to sniff traffic in real time. Watch out
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
