By default, DreamWeaver 2 assumes that your page will be downloaded with a 28.8 KB per second modem. The estimated download time appears in the status bar. If you are creating an intranet site that runs over a local area network, you can assume that browsers are connecting much faster than at modem speeds. To recalculate the download time in DreamWeaver 2, click Preferences from the Edit menu. In the Category column, click Status Bar.In the Connection Speed combo box, select a higher connection. For example, try 128. Click OK. The status bar now displays a more realistic estimate of the time it will take for the page to render.
