Thread: connection dropping with grabit

  1. #1
    Hi all,

    Getting great speeds with Grabit, but most of the time checking the graph at the bottom of Grabit, I see that the connection every few seconds drops to 0 then goes back up again

    Just wondering why this would be? Probably because im using my isp's server (shame i havnt got a CC to pay for newshosting - wish they accepted paypal)

    Its not because you use your isp's server - i use Grabit with newshosting, Newsdemon and isp (ntl) and the graph allways shows the drop.
    I dont have a clue why but with the great speeds i get i'm not bothered !
    Try newsdemon i think you can pay with switch/maestro cards.

    i had something similar in the past, it was because my (old) isp did some sort of port scans, wich kinda block the traffic for a sec.

    i can't recall the kind of scans but if i recall correct it was land or xxxfin scan.

    Hope this can help you find the problem.

    Just curious if this was the new beta that was released the other day? Grabbit is going in strange bursts right now, goes for a second then stops for longer than it downloads. This isn't happening at all with Xnews, the speed is constant with that. Maybe I'll go back to the old beta.

    edit - ignore me, I booted into linux and it is going slow in klibido, must be newshosting or something else.
