:helpsmile: I posted this under someone else's topic, but thought maybe it's own would be better.
I had Clean KMD 4.4.4 on my computer for a while, and was running over 100 Kb/s on practically everything, with over 500 at times.
Well... I got a new system with XP Home, larger hard drive, much more memory, etc. I have the same ISP, and same router. I downloaded Clean KMD 4.4.4 again, as it seemed to work so well. I must also say that, at my husband's urging, I first tried to get the paid version of Kazaa Desktop, but it would never work at all for me, so I just got rid of it.
I have configured my router, turned off all XP firewalls, use KaNAT. I have read all I can find on the boards, and nothing helps. I am lucky to get speeds up to 50. They are usually anywhere from .50 to 5.00.
One I am downloading now (or trying to) is running mostly at 5.00 or under, and KDat shows over 200 sources, all good. This is the only one I have running currently. My uploads seem to be doing great, however.
When I had the old computer, I never configured the router, or checked for firewalls or any of that stuff. I just loaded Clean KMD, and started downloading.
I have checked at PCFlank, and it says the port I configured is open.
My bandwidth tests show 1266/132
Also, now, when I run Clean KMD, it is really slow, if not impossible, to do anything else. I have a web based business, and sell on eBay, and before, it was no problem to work while it was running.
Does anyone have any other suggestions of ANYTHING I can do, or try, or check, or ........?
