First off, please go easy on me due to the fact I am new and dont have much knowledge under my belt.
I have 3 computers setup in my place. We have DSL fed into a Belkin wireless router. My laptop running XP is usually running wirelessly and my buddies desktop running XP is wired. I am in the process of tossing windows Me on my old desptop and installing XP to make networking easier, plus the ME cpu was done.
I have been using Winmx for a about 2 years now and have been happy but I am starting to loose my patience. It takes forever for files to download not to mention to find files that are even available. I tried Shareaza and that wasnt anything to write home about.
My main issue here is that I want to be able to find files easily and not worry about infecting my new laptop with spy-ware and ads. Also, since I have router the firewall is turned on. Will I have a problem with finding files? All shareazza does is say "some files were filtered out". I have a feeling this has to do with the router.
PS. It's amazing the amount of information, time and effort everyone has provided on this forum.
