Thread: Non-existent Upload Speed

  1. #1
    An unusual question for sure, but how can I fix my lack of uploading speed?
    I am lucky to be even able to upload at a piss-poor speed of 1.07 kb/s.
    I have lost count of the aborted uploaded files, 9 times out of 10 I do not even have a upload speed, providing you call o kb/s an upload speed.

    I am unphased about the downloading speeds, but what is really getting me wild is my lack ofupload speed & as I believe in giving back , it would be nice to be able to upload a few files back. I have noticed tho, a couple of uploads start at 14 kb/s but slowly wind down to o kb/s
    Any suggestions ?

    I am running cable, unlimited download & a capped upload of 16 kb/s. But surely for even such a small capped upload, I should still be able to get at something

    thanx in advance

    Why not set the upload speed to Unlimited? Or 512?
    16 is Leeching! (people who do that, do it so they can download faster them selfes&#33

    Most people download about a million files at a time and at no speed at all! (Like 0.89kb)
    Just set the Maximum number of uploaders to the number that is acceptable like 5, and the Max. upload speed to 512!

    Why worry about upload speed if you set it to 16?

    because of a bug in kazaa the the kb speed and kB speed are mixed up. You've limited the ul speed to 16 kbs, that's 16/8=2KB
    Set your max ul speed 8 times higher so it'll be ok.


    ps. I'm not too sure about those kb and kB terms...but i know what i'm trying to say

    Is there really a bug Mivaro?

    How do you know that? If there is.., I just re-install the older 2.02 version again!
    (I'm having problems with some moviez lately! Downloading at no speed at all like 1.07kb)

    Is this a bug?

    it's an old kazaa bug, nothing serious, you only get easily confused about the settings. Where you set your max upload speed it's in bits and in your traffic screen it's in bytes. That's why setting max ul to 16 (bits) gives you an actually upload speed of 2kB...

    It's not a bug!
    it's just displyed in BITS not BYTES.
    8 BITS=1 BYTE
    so by setting the maximum to 16 BITS you have really set it to 2 BYTES
    so set it yo 128 and you'll have set it for
    16kbs

    well, in my opinion it's a bug...

    They should have used the same terms in both..

    The rest you've explained in far better words then mine

    No offense guys, but i think you misunderstood the question... i think he meant that his cable provider limited the upload speed to 16 kB/s (if that's possible)... anyway, make sure you share files that ppl actually need and also make sure you didn't limit your upstream in kazaa itself (set it to something like 128k)...

    If he has the upload set to 16 INSIDE kazaa than he has set it at 2kbs
    and that seems to be the problem.he never once mentions his isp

    kind thanks to the people whom took the time to reply to my post,
    it seems that something I put in may have confused the issue here somewhat.

    When I referred to the unlimited upload & capped 16 kb/s upload, I was referring to my own ISP.
    Also if it does help I will include the settings I have used as from the help files.

    TRAFFIC: max number of simutaneous downloads 8
    max number of sumutaneous uploads 4

    ADVANCED:max number of search results 150
    MAX BANDWIDTH unlimited
    am not functioning as super node
    optimal bandwidth unchaecked


    I hope that may help a little bit more.
