live update 5 super slow
« on: 01-May-12, 15:02:49 »

Not sure where to put this but here goes....

When I run the MSI live update 5 software and it finds an available update, it will sit there slowly trying to download the update for a very long time, an AMD chipset driver took over an hour for one example.  Is there something that can be done on my end to speed up the downloads or is there a limit on the other end throttling back download speeds?

I am currently running on cable internet and download speeds are very good for game patches and other downloads I do so I do not believe the issue is on my end but it is certainly possible.

 Easy one, remove LU and don't use it especially for BIOS. Manually download anything you need such as drivers, BIOS, etc. and then install it yourself.

 If you need to update BIOS >> Use the MSI HQ Forum USB flasher <<

Thanks for the reply, I have to ask though, why have the tool if it should not be used?

Is it really that bad?
