Hello all,

Brand new to playonlinux. I downloaded Linux Mint yesterday, as I have wanted to replace Windows for years, so I finally took the plunge. The only thing keeping me away was Winows games, which can be remedied by WINE. I have installed playonlinux and have been experiencing extremely slow download speeds of games. 

I have internet that supports 100Mb/s and I have been dowloading programs through steam via playonlinux at around 200Kb/s. When I was running Windows I was able to download a 2.3Gb game in under 30 minutes. Now I have been downloading the same game for over a whole day and it still isn't downloaded.

Any thoughts as to why this is so slow? Bare with my as I am a complete noob :)

I rebooted the windows system and it is now working fine.
