I'm using the following code for download:
Dim wc As System.Net.WebClient
Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
wc = New System.Net.WebClient()
wc.DownloadFileAsync(New Uri("URL"), "C:\")

I have good internet connection and the Direct link transfer rate 500.385 kb/sec on Internet Download Manager.
So how can I make download faster in VB?
It's really slow in VB

Any code?

thanks :)

I found this excellent CP article: A Multi-thread C# Segmented Download Manager
But the article was written in C#, you need to convert the entire project to VB.NET, OR just compile as library and add reference in your VB.NET project.

Hope this helps.
