Never have figured out the use for these.

There's no way it can increase your download speed, especially up to 5 times, as that it TOTALLY based on what you pay for from your ISP.

If you have that many network connection issues or power outages, then I'd advise you to reinstall Windows or stay off the internet before you wreck your computer to begin with!

These are absolute junk programs, IMO.

I believe you missed the idea there.
It doesn't increase your speed provided by the ISP, but does help sometimes with the speed from the server(s) you're downloading from. I use Free Download Manager once in a while.

I disagree. When downloading via firefox I might get 500kb per second. with this I get 1.9 megs per second.

You have no idea how this download manager works then, but it isn't junk it speeds up my downloads.

It just starts multiple connections then at the end puts it back together. So if you were getting 500kb before... it opens up 3 500kb connections thus giving you 1.5 megs a second.
