Thread: Mirc Connection Problems

  1. #1
    can anyone tell me why i get a message like connection closed: requirement speed is below 5 or something...i'm on 56k granted does mirc hate 56kers? also it doesn't close the connection right away. it might take anywhere from 10-20 min before it does and sometimes at about 2 mins. i see my connection rate go lower then 5kB/s many times before it closes finally...any help would be awesome.

    Some users, not all, will set a minimum kb/s on their fserv - if your download drops below this minimum for a sustained amount of time, you will be disconnected - what drives me nuts with this is when people limit it, and then they can't supply you with the bandwidth and you get cut off - happens to me all the time. I won't have anything else going at all, and my download drops below 10kb/s or whatever their minimum is and I get cut off. I know for a fact, it isn't me, I'm on a 3mbit/s line...

    It all depends on who you are downloading from. Some servers put a minimum, others do not - my own fserv, I don't care, but other people do. If you look at it this way - most people have a limited queue set up, and limited number of simultaneous uploads. When they get a really slow connection, it ties up one of these slots for a long time, and hangs up the queue as well. In cases like this, I tend to add another send slot for a while until the slow connection is done. Others put the minimum bandwidth requirement in place for this reason. Mirc is still a great way to get/send files, you just have to check people's server messages - if they have a minimum, they'll most likely have that advertised.

    Some ISP's throttle the IRC ports when the packethandlers detect large usage of those.
    That could explain why your speed slows down after a while...

    Stay away from a fast channel.

    Don't be pissed. Think about it. If you had high speed connection, and you went into a fast channel with super fast bots. Would you want 56Kers to hog up the limited que?

    I sure as hell don't want that.

    Try looking for a 56K channel on efnet
