Download Accelerators for linux...


I'm looking for a program like DAP (www.speedbit.com) for linux.
I don't want just a Download Manger... I want a download Accelerator...

I tried KGet and Prozilla.
KGet is just a manger... and doesn't always get the job done.

Prozilla in my opinion is deep into ALPHA stages, and if its not it should be.
I downloaded a rather large file with it (140Megs) and the speed is not very good.

60KB/s at most.
And its very messed up, becuase when I try to download it downloads at say 60KB/s and the numbers keep dropping fast...

And then I notice that I'm not actually downloading at ALL.
Total Bytes recived: stay's the same... while the speed is changeing? wierd...

Not only that.
It sometimes goes into a minus speed!

Avarge Speed: -43KB/s
Estimated time left: -1200 Seconds

!

What the hell?

And even weirded... sometimes it says that its downloading at 600KB/s per second, sometimes at a few thoushend KB/s... its very messed up.

So anyway...
Can anybody please recommend a program like DAP for linux that works?

I'm running SuSE 9, and have a cable modem. (if that info helps at all... )

Thanks...
