Thread: Slooowww!

    Why is Kazaa so slow? I have broadbandinternet but in Kazaa, downloads vary from 0.15 Kbps till 1 or 2 Kbps. Somentimes, for a split second, it comes up with 20 or 200, but this is very rare!!
    Is there some way to speed things up?

    Quote PL has nothing to do with speeds but priority on downloads (only on normal kazaa 2.0.2 users, any lower versions of kazaa will show a PL of 0 to them. So it's a first come, first serve at that point.)
    You can only download as fast as someone else can upload.
    You can only download if the other user has an open upload slot.
    Make sure you setted up you're firewall to allow access for Kazaa Lite [K++]
    Get rid of Ad-ware/Spyware and the like. (Programs that can do that are Adaware and Spybot)
    Make sure your system is optimized for your connection (use a program like Dr. TCP or CableNut)
    If your downloading rare files, of course its going to be slow!
    More sources usually = better speed
    Use tools that came with K++, such as AutoSearchMore, Speeedup, Kazap to find more sources.
    Try to control AutoSearchMore and let it rest awhile to avoid disconnection from KL.
    Speeds vary on what you download sometimes...
    Also try, or and test your speed there. If it matches your advertised speeds (what your ISP told you it was) then its not your fault. Also, try programs like Dr. TCP, CableNut or TCP/IP Optimizer...all found on either site.

    It's just sad and disappointing to see everybody uploading files on high speed from your computer while having broadbandinternet acting like a 28 K modem....or less!

    There are alot of people who still share files with 56k. Too bad there isn't a way for broadband users to collectively share and trade files easily.--

    would increasing the port number make any difference?
