I am having the same "constantly connecting and searching" problem but never able to download that has been posted on here often. I have tried to jump supernodes without help.
I have seen this message posted several times by Musleman on all of the messages with similar problems
"your download speed depends on the # of sources for it and their upload speed, anddon't be fooled by whatyou see in the search window they are not an indication of who is available for connection so change supernodes to see if you get lucky, also use localized supernodes, also try changing ports, and lower your upload bandwidth,remove the no ip sources from your dat files and see if it helps"
excuse me for being a noob but am unsure how to change ports (and what to change to) and how to "remove the no ip sources from your dat files"?
I have a laptop and when I hook it up to a cable connection it downloads - but when I go back to my 56k dial up - it no longer will download (I havent been able to download anything for several weeks)?
Any help will be apprecaited
