    hello kazaa users.. i have a problem while using kazaa..resently i uppgraded my connection from 0.5 mb to 8 mb, but now when i try to dl movies/music what ever from kazaa my speed dont go over 10 kb/s!! when i had my old connection 0.5 my dl in kazaa was about 45/55 kb/s but now when i have uppgraded to 8 mb/s it should dl much much much faster but it does not.. its stuck on very low speed..i have tryed about every tip i have seen on this forum but with no luck . i did a connection speed test and my dl speed was on 840 kb/s. so what can the problem be? i have no firewall am not behind any router have removed all spyware and ad ware..anyone knows what it can be?

    Well, since you have ruled out a firewall problem, then I would suggest getting one set up now.

    Zone Alarm has a free version that seems easy to me to set up.

    Also you could post what KL settings you have now. Have you tried tweaking the settings options ?

    The last option would be to reinstall KL.

    What ISP are you using ?

    It is slightly possible that your ISP is constricting everyone's bandwidth during a maintenance cycle for a few days. Check you ISP's website for maintancence info.

    hege -- I'm not a computer expert, but I have been working with K-Lite for quite a while. You might try lowering the bandwith setting for uploading to other K-Lite users to see if that helps.

    My cable broadband connection is 100mbps and download tests show I can download more than 2mbps. But that's only part of it. I've had a few downloads over 300kbps but most range less than 75kbps.

    The biggest influence on your download speed is the number of sources you're downloading from and their speed. You can have the fastest connection in the world, but if the people you're downloading from are on a dial-up connection,
    you'll be lucky to get 5kbps.

    Also, there have been several threads from those using older K-Lite versions that things have gotten slower, fewer results and often connection problems. I'm now experimenting with one of the KLchat builds based on KMD 2.6 and I'm finding hundreds of sources and when I find someone who's actually sharing, the download speeds are fast. However, there are lots of times when I find a huge number of sources and I can't connect to any of them.

    Hope some of this helps.

    When you upgraded, did you change ISPs?
    If so, the new ISP may have a special (possibly secret) policy to cripple access to file-sharing networks.

    That to me is it in a nutshell and don't forget most users are sharing to more than one and don't have that kind of speed to start with you would need a LOT of users who are fast to get a good speed going, the other problem too is the ones that have speed like uni' etc are now having problems connecting to KaZaa thanks to riaa etc.
    If you want speed have a look at the other p2p like M(irc) and Bittorrent they on here too just have a read.

    >>> i did a connection speed test and my dl speed was on 840 kb/s.>>>

    >>>using port 1214>>>

    Somebody correct me if I am wrong, but when I go to a website
    and it tests my net speed, they are checking http speed and not port 1214 speed ?

    hege,

    You might try http tunneling or ask your ISP if they care about p2p programs.
