    Hello i am having a problem with k lite

    the download speed starts at 3.5kbps and slowly dies down to .02kbps. what could be the problem?

    :helpsmile: i am running win xp sp1 on AMD 2400 512mbram 64mbvid :helpsmile:
    56k Modem, 26.4-31.2kbps connection

    probably because you are downloading from an idiot user with 1 bandwith!

    ive had the 0.02Kbs before and it makes me want to brick the users face in!

    Yes, but it dies down pretty slowly.
    (.1kbps) every second(3.5, 3.4 3.3 3.2) every second, and it happens nearly every time. it even happens when they have 100 bandwidth!!!

    What are your upload/s doing?

    Do they behave the same way?

    Hello, I have this same problem It started a few weeks ago for no aparent reason and I already tried new versions of KL but no luck, searched the forums but cant find a clear solution. My uploads are at constant speed, about 12K . I have cable internet.
    Tried with and without active firewall, but no change. Tried also via ADSL but no change in problem. Tried changing supernode , ports etc but still no change in problem. Is here a guru who has the ultimate solution ?

    If it keeps throttling down, then the person you were connected to is gone or you lost your connection.

    Make sure your upload speed isn't overloading the connection.

    "Unlimited" speed is generally too fast...

    The best upload bandwidth setting is about 80% of your max upload bandwidth -- for broadband connections.

    The remaining 20% of your upload bandwidth is used for maintaining everything else. Of course, if you're really on broadband that 20% amount should be overkill for the task. B)

    Dial-up do best set to 1 upload max and 24 kilobits/sec (3 KB/sec).
