    i just added emule to my other pc and began to download a file.

    i left it overnight and in the morning my computer was frozen. Once it restarted my internet didnt work and i cant get it to work still!

    recently before this i got adsl and in order to download i turned the firewall off. My computer is connected to three others in the house and we all use the same internet. Mines not working but the others do.

    can anyone help (i hope this makes sense)

    Well, several shings need to be cleared up, like the "in order to download i turned the firewall off"...did U completely disable U'r firewall, as in leaving U'r computer on overnight downloading stuff from emule without a firewall??!! If so, I can tell U that that is not a good idea. Not that a hacker would enter your PC, but several Trojan horses's could have been installed.

    And by sharing U'r ADSL connection with all PC's, do U use a program like WinGate or WinProxy to distribute the internet connection? And was the computer that froze a client or the server (did the internet connection go directly into it, or did it get the internet "through"another comp?)

    'cause emule is known to freeze from time to time, but it definitly dosen't disable the internet

    Emule's error correction is great, and while its not nearly as fast as bittorrent, its very reliable.

    Regarding your connection problems, I have my computers shared with WindowsXP. I don't use any additional software. It sounds like the network connection is down from your router/hub to your pc. Have it checked out.

    Emule's great for the stuff that aint on the fasttrack network and CD images. I'd never download a CD image from kazaa cause they never work.
