Thread: Question About Downloads.

  1. #1
    I have read the FAQ section but I'm having a problem that either I'm too dumb to understand or it isn't explained in the FAQ.


    I usually try to download a number of songs at once. It seems like all I get are extremely slow downloads or the "more sources needed" message. However, I can close out KLR and immediately open it back up and I suddenly am gettting my downloads at great speeds...the same ones I just couldn't get. That lasts for about a minute then I lose them.

    Any suggestions? Thanks.

    dont download lots of songs at once as each takes a chunk of the download , do only 2 or 3 at most and pause all the rest , also ensure you upload is set to a low level , if upload is set to unlimited it will swamp your downloads

    go to options and k ++ options , and set bandwidth to 24

    If bandwidth is set to 24 kilobits/sec (that's only 3 KB/sec&#33, then set max uploads to only 1.

    But if you're on broadband, you can almost certainly manage to upload at 64 kilobits/sec (8 KB/sec) without any problems -- and with 2-3 max uploads at a time. Even at this upload speed, there shouldn't be ANY download slowdowns caused by uploads.

    Just make sure to hide listing of your files by others if you're sharing 50 or more at once or want to partially hide from RIAA/MPAA/BSA!

    Also, DISABLE extra bandwidth to other users/uploads -- AKA optimal bandwidth while idle -- it is and always has been a VERY BROKEN feature.
