I am currently trying to download the FFXIV Beta using the official link from the Twitter site.
The problem I am having my "Downlad Speed" climbs, but the intantly descends back to 0 and nothing happens except for it to rise again followed by another drop to 0.00%
I went to work and left it, figuring it may speed up, but on my arrival home about 8-9 hours later, it had only progressed to 8%.
I understand this is a very popular game, and many people may be downloading it, is this my problem? Should I suck it up and wait? At this rate it will take 5 days, but says 24 hours "Time Remaining" yet never moves due to the dropping of speed back down to 0%.
At one point my "Local Connections" read 25, but still my download speed was near none existant.
Please bare in mind that I am not PC minded at all, and I welcome any help or advice.
I also understand that Open Beta starts in a few hours, could this affect it?
Thanks very much.
