    Hello

    I have broadband at 10x faster than dial-up. The speed is 576 kbps.

    I have Kazaa Lite K ++ Version 2.4.3. Despite the broadband my download speed on kazaa lite is around 4/6 kbps. Why is it so slow ? What do I do to increase the spped ? Thank you.

    Regards

    Hi hdoshi

    I suggest that You first of all really check that Your connection is slow. You can do that by following these steps:

    1) Search for a very widespread song (some early hit by Elvis Presley, or some earlier hit by Madonna).

    2) Let Your ASM (Auto Search More) be activated all the time (Auto Search More - No limit).

    3) When you have collected well over 50 user's, start the download, and check Your download speed for that song. To find 50 users that are sharing a very widespred song should not take long time at all.

    4) Last but not least! Do this at a time of day/night when there are not so many users connected. Don't do it when there is 3 mill users connected, because then the network is a bit clogged. Do it when there are around 2 mill users instead.

    I assume that You don't use Your internet connection for heavy uploads or other activities while You're doing this test.

    If You still find that You have a very slow download speed, the tech wizard's will help You with more tips, I'm sure!


    (I'm running Kazaa Lite ver 2.43)

    You can also test your speed in web speedtests like Numion Numion

    There you ll see if is correct. You must do at least 4 tests to surely verify your speed.
