    If you have a cable modem go to Pc Pitstop(if you dial-up it's still a good site.) You can test your dl/ul speed, run some diagnostics,check ping times,
    and a bunch of other stuff also.

    After you run the speed test. Download the Cable modem DSL Auto Fix,it
    modifies your recive buffer size mine is set at 64240 bytes and this should give you a big speed boost.

    I went from around 1882 kb/s to 3000 to 4000.
    after I used the auto fix.(you can do it manualy to,thru your registry but be careful.)

    Also If you have a cable modem unplug it from the back(usb or,ethernet,and power) every once in awhile if your dl speeds seem to drag.
    Leave it off for a few minutes.

    It recycles your modem and your dl speeds should pick back up.

    Hope I have been some help.


    Peace brotherdoobie

    also try TCPOptimiser (link on my webpage). It automatically tweaks some Windows settings for you.

    This tip gives links to speed areas, so here.

    Tip on Kazaa Lite
    Speed and PL:
    PL has nothing to do with speeds but priority on downloads (only on normal kazaa 2.0.2 users, any lower versions of kazaa will show a PL of 0 to them. So it's a first come, first serve at that point.)
    If you notice you have a PL of 1000 and it never drops because the cheat is automatically on, to turn it off: Go to Options, click more options..., K++ options, and uncheck the cheat.
    You can only download as fast as someone else can upload.
    You can only download if the other user has an open upload slot.

    Make sure you setted up you're firewall to allow access for Kazaa Lite [K++]
    Get rid of Ad-ware/Spyware and the like. (Programs that can do that are Adaware and Spybot)
    Make sure your system is optimized for your connection (use a program like Dr. TCP or CableNut)
    If your downloading rare files, of course its going to be slow!
    More sources usually = better speed
    Use tools that came with K++, such as AutoSearchMore, Speeedup, Kazap to find more sources.
    Try to control AutoSearchMore and let it rest awhile to avoid disconnection from KL.

    You see yourself as K-Lite Master and other K++ users do to, only 2.02 kazaa users see you as Supreme Being. This does not affect anything in anyway. You can also customize it with tools such as resource hacker.
    Try pausing and resuming the file.
    Try jumping SuperNodes or restarting Kazaa Lite.

    PATIENCE!
    Speeds vary on what you download sometimes...
    and...
    GOOD LUCK! :-)
    Also try, http://www.speedguide.net or http://www.dslreports.com and test your speed there. If it matches your advertised speeds (what your ISP told you it was) then its not your fault. Also, try programs like Dr. TCP, CableNut or TCP/IP Optimizer...all found on either site.

    A hypothesis by The_Great_Dude:
    Also, I'm not sure but when the longer you have kazaa lite and not uninstall or reinstall, the speeds seem to be ok, since most of the old members here have no problems. Just a guess.
    I said this because, in the beta testing day of k++ beta 1, I saw a post saying Random Nut said speed slowed down when he switched to normal kazaa from kazaa lite for testing purposes. When he went back, his speeds went back to normal. Also if my memory serves me right, backup your network settings, or something like that.

    I'm not really sure how all this works. I can understand getting a few kbps extra but doubling your speed like the guy above?!

    Were you guys not getting the advertised speed from your ISP? If so, I wouldn't have put up with that til now. Or are you now getting twice the speed you are supposed to get? If thats the case then more power to ya!

    Try editing your registry, you can get a higher TTL than the windows default.

    The best tool to make your cable/dsl connection faster or optimized is Dr. TCP. Do a tweak test from there site. http://www.dslreports.com If your all good then no probs. Lookk at the tweak test results and then d/l Dr. TCP apply settings in Dr. TCP and then restart and do a speed test form their too. You should regonize a big improvement.

    I have found that the speed tests results from there are the most accurate.

    If you want to learn other stuff go to http://www.speedguide.net it has the most onfo on tweaking your connection has helped me a lot.
