Thread: Sheraza D/l Speed

  1. #1
    Although I admire Raza's rich interface plus its file availability and quality, I am starting to become somewhat frustrated by its pathetic D/L speed. I think it is crazy seeing people uploading from me utilizing my total U/L bandwidth (128 Kbps) when I struggle to exceed 2-3 KB/s in my D/Ls!!! (For the record, my D/L ADSL speed is 384 Kbps, i.e. 48 KB/s). It is even more frustrating when I see K-Lite D/Ls getting double digit KB speeds with ease.

    I wonder what might be the problem. I know that in principle Raza is much slower than K-Lite, but man, this is ridiculous! Is it something wrong with my settings? (I am using the default settings proposed by Raza for my modem speed). A friend of mine suggested that in the Settings->Upload->Bandwidth Limit I shouldn't use MAX KB/s and AVERAGE MODE, but try a lower figure instead; he said he did so and he saw improvement in his D/L speed. To me it looks weird, but to tell you the truth, in K-Lite (which D/Ls faster) I have indeed a smalled U/L limit which might be a eason for the discrepancy...

    Any other suggestions for speeding up? Help will be greatly appreciated!

    If you upload with all of your bandwidth, you won't be able to download. Try setting your upload speeds a little lower.

    So, that was really the prob then?

    Well, i tried it but nothing really happened. Any other ideas?

    BTW, what kind of speeds do u ppl get? Does anybody get 15+ KB/s here? (Something I haven't even dreamt of, yet)...

    It is quite strange, I have the opposite problem. Kazaa Lite seems dead (except uploads, obviously) and Shareazza downloads, wery often, at 15-25 KB/s, sometimes more. Why?

    Firstly your upload speed should not affect your download speed, however your upload bandwidth should be restricted to no more than 80% of your total upload bandwidth. Regarding your download speed I doubt there is much you can do about that, other than try aa different p2p application. Currently I recommend Overnet (see the Emule forum for details).

    So you mean that most people d/l at this snail speed of mine, in Raza? But grunt said that he hits 15+...

    Any ideas regarding the average speed that a typical Raza user gets (provided he has at least a DSL connection, of course)? Because if the avg speed is really below 5 KB/s, then the program is crap. But I do not want to condemn it before I definitely know about what is actually happening with the speed issue.

    same here, infact even worse...
    I&#39;m queued in the Edonkey 2000 network forever..
    When queue number reaches 1 I eagerly wait..
    then suddenly the user goes away, and then I get a queue number.. like 4 digits...
    this is really crazy..
    I&#39;m downloading for a while and then stop for a hour queue again..

    I&#39;m trying to blame the software letting u all know whats hapenning with raza...
