Alright. New to these boards, and from what I've seen, this has never been posted before.
So here's my story, and my tip.
I noticed the other day that my uploads were slow.
Unsure why, since I have a very good DSL connection, I decided it must be an options issue.
Well, I was right.
My max bandwidth for uploads was 64 kbits.
That's 8 kB/s.
And since 3 people were downloading, that accounts for the horrible 2.67kB/s they were getting.
Since I want to be a USEFUL source for filesharing, I upped this 64 kbits to 256kbits.
That translates into a max upload speed of 32 kB/sec which is not my entire upload bandwidth, so I can still do other things requiring timely upload, but is enough that people can get at least 10kB/s from me.
Now, here's the instructions for those who have the same "problem" as I did.
Click 'Options' menu in Kazaa (of course)
Select 'Kazaa Lite K++ options. A new screen will come up.
Choose the 'Advanced' tab
The second editable box from the top contains your max allocated upload bandwidth. Enter whichever number you desire in here. REMEMBER that the number in that box divided by 8 = the actual kB/s transfer speed your allocating.
Please increase this number. I've been having trouble downloading anything from anyone at speeds greater than about 5kB/s, which is really time consuming.
(Hm, cept this one guy who I was downloading at 100kB/s from. I only wish he had better music.)
Well, I hope this helps at least 1 person.
