My internet connection allows about 550 kb/s. When iGetter works unlimited, it consumes the whole bandwith (which is the expected behavior, I suppose).

But then, all other internet traffic is really slow, and web surfing becomes almost impossible. So I tried the speed limit to slow down iGetter "a bit". But this is not possible. If I shift the slider the tiniest possible bit to the left, the speed goes down to as far as 140kb/s.

Couldn't you implement the possibility to set the Speed limit directly as a number, e.g. 400 kb/s?

besides this, iGetter works just pefectly for me; thank you!

The scale of iGetter speed limit slider depends on the connection type selected at iGetter preferences, Acceleration panel. Just choose a faster connection type. Also, you can adjust the speed limit value at iGetter preferences, Acceleration panel.

Same problem here. iGetter ignores what I send for the max download speed. Do I have to use the Tools menu and choose Obey Speed Limit as well?

In order to limit the download speed, you need to turn on "Obey Speed Limit" option in the "Downloads" menu (Cmd+L) on Mac and Tools menu (Ctrl+L) on Windows. Then adjust the "Speed limit" slider that will appear at the bottom right-hand corner on Mac or over the average speed field on Windows.

If you want iGetter to start with applied speed limit then turn on "At startup turn on speed limit" at iGetter options, Acceleration panel.
