OK I have read as many tips on dls as i can find. I tried them all. The way i can get the fastest dls are this:
While you do this, have kazaa ignite running and set it for about every 10 seconds. (you can get it by searching on google)
Also, get TCP optimiser if you have broadband. (it doesnt make much difference on 56k modems)
1. Search for the file.
2. "search more" a few times until there is a bandwith above 3000 and over 15 sources.
3.Dl the two with the highest bandwith and user count.
4. click the "+" box next to the dl and look at your slowest sources; manually find more sources from them.
5. Cancel the slower dl and keep finding more sources manually for the slowest sources.
Using these steps it took 45 mins to dl a 342 mb file!!! was supposed to be hulk but was shrek...
I am averaging about 120kb/s or higher so its well worth it.
