I haven't heard of any Oz ISPs using traffic shaping, so that shouldn't be a problem. Who is your ISP? Are you sure that you haven't just gone over your monthly download limit (depending what sort of a plan you're on) & been booted back down to dial up speed?

Download a file from here & see what speeds you get

Have a look through the thread below (click on link). It's referring to LimeWire but the same goes for FW. It's got some good tips for setting up FW for best performance!

Yeah dood ... sounds more like you've gone over your monthly limit. Why not log into your ISP site account page & check up how much you've used for the month. ISP's that shape bandwidths for limiting download capacities generally will still show your position on the map for how much you've used for the month. The higher the speed the moreso you'll be capped for bandwidth if you go over the limit. ;)
